Fashion today is all pervasive and try as you might you cannot avoid it. Whether you live in the United States or Switzerland or Timbuktu, fashion will find you in some way or the other and have a say in your life. Even if you choose not to follow it you will see it all around you oozing from your television sets (I am sure you know that there are channels dedicated to only fashion!), your office colleagues, at a party; practically every place you can think of.
The epitome of a fashion statement is the Banana Republic range of clothing from Gap. It satisfies our need to look nice and be attractive for other people. Some people will go all the way and spend a fortune trying to look more fashionable than the next door neighbor.
To suit various style statements that different people want to make about themselves clothing companies launch sub brands or different types of clothing under different brand names. One brand for a particular style! While Old Navy (also from Gap) may be all about casual clothing and comfort, Banana Republic provides the stylishness that some consumers may be searching for. So the fashion and clothing companies resort to different brands for different styles, price range and purpose.
If you are looking to pick up something to make a high fashion statement then Banana Republic is the brand for you. It has an optimistic and fashionable modern look. It is range of clothing which will lure even those men who like to claim that they do not care about looks. Fight as they might men will need to admit today that even a schmuck looks better in a tuxedo and a gentleman can spoil his own image by making an appearance in torn, dirty jeans.
Most women also like the wide range offered by Banana Republic. It has a business look and a nice club look. It gives a nice elegant look and though the prices may seem higher the price to value equation works out very fine. One only has to remember the t-shirt one purchased a few weeks back at bargain prices that faded in a single wash.
If you want to look good and be seen in the latest a la mode styles and fashions, then my dear friend you will need to spend lavishly to obtain that look. There are no free lunches in life.
