We're always looking out for fresh new outfit ideas, so when we spotted Banana Republic's oh-so chic summer lookbook, it was love at first sight. 

The brand is Old Navy and Gap's luxe, sophisticated older sister, and subsequently, snagging a head-to-toe BR ensemble comes at not-too-college-budget-friendly price point.

But we're here to help! Below are three Banana Republic-inspired looks that won't break the bank. Scroll down to check 'em out.

1. Cute & Colorblocked

While the outfit above is a dress, opting for the skirt-and-cami combo gives you the same look for a fraction of the price. This sweet, summery combo looks fab when worn with cork sandals and a bold textured clutch. Accessorize with a stack of bangles for an adorable ensemble that works for day or night.

Summer outfit idea: Colorblock pleated skirt in pink, white and blue paired with white spaghetti strap cami tank, gold bracelets, coral woven bag with fringe, coral platform heels

2. Modern Day Audrey

This look immediately gave me Audrey Hepburn vibes, but in a fun, trend-forward way. Start with a pair of cropped jeans with a slightly flared leg, then grab a coral pink ribbed tee. Neutral flats continue the casual feel, while a printed square scarf acts as a chic alternative to the typical necklace. Cat-eye sunnies in a timeless tortoise print are the perfect finishing touch. 

Summer outfit idea: pink round neck tee shirt, cat eye sunglasses, cropped flare jeans in dark wash, neck scarf, taupe slip on flats

3. Polished Peplum

Peplum is back, and this ensemble shows us a sleek, polished way to rock it. While BR's peplum blouse has floral details, we chose a mesh overlay version for a sportier vibe. Wear it with crisp black shorts for a classic look. Fringe sandals and a mini backpack are fun touches, while hoop earrings add just the right amount of shine.
