The Banana Republic Friends and Family Sale is in full swing through Monday, August 19. The on-site promotion is 40%, with exclusions. But, if you know the magic code, you can actually get a full 50% off with no BR merchandise exclusions. The trick? Use code BRFAMILY to get the bonus deal. If you order $100 or more, also use code BRSHIP for free 3-5 day shipping.

Not sure how to best make use of this limited time only promo code? These five timeless minimalist picks are all sure things, especially at this great sale price.

The new Japan Exclusives collection at Banana Republic is fantastic. These are easily some of my favorite BR pieces in years. But, caution: they were sized for the Japanese market, so you may need to size up. This high-neck black blouse is my absolute favorite.

This classic silk cashmere sweater is a closet staple in neutral shades, but in this luscious kelly green color it becomes a fall standout. It’s available in nine other colors, if green isn’t your thing.

This luxe cashmere cardigan is the perfect layering piece for long haul flights. It’s comfy enough for a 15-hour flight and will keep you warm when the aggressive cabin air kicks in. But, unlike a worn-in hoodie, it’s also super chic and will keep you looking worthy of an upgrade.

My all-time favorite white button-down shirt was a BR find from more than a decade ago. I finally had to retire it, and I keep meaning to replace it. This oxford shirt is a very close dupe, and the 4.5-start rating with 78 reviews makes me think it’s just as fabulous as my original.

Back on the topic of travel dressing…these Tencel joggers nicely balance comfort and a chic vibe, plus they’d look great with the cashmere cardigan above.
