We’ve all been there: Gone hunting in the men’s section for the perfect slouchy tee or spotted a boxy cardigan and wished it came in women’s sizes. These days, style has become less about shopping by section and more about shopping by pieces we actually want to wear. Also? Isn’t shopping by gender kind of regressive?
Banana Republic sees you and is with you. Which is why the brand created the UNIversal Collection, a range of gender neutral staples for holiday. According to the brand, the UNIversal Collection is the next step in an ongoing effort to “celebrate diversity and equality.” Basics like tees, crew-neck sweaters, and jackets are all available in universal sizes.
With 60 different styles ranging from XXS to XXL, there’s definitely something for everyone, from beanies to turtlenecks to backpacks to gloves. The line—which ranges from $29.50 for boxy cotton tees to $398 for a plaid double-breasted coat—comes in different color ways and uses materials like cotton and wool. Sizes come in regular and tall, with a customized size finder to get your perfect fit.
A gender neutral collection is a first for the brand, who describes it as “a curation of classic Banana Republic pieces for everyone to wear in the modern world.”
