Good news, folk—we're exactly 11 days out from spring (at the time of publication). Eleven days! That means we've got a little over a week to refresh our warm weather wardrobes with something a bit cooler than fleece-lined leggings and puffer coats.

After a long winter bundled up, we're aching to stocking up on easy, breezy linen staples, which—lucky for us—Banana Republic has in spades, all for 40 percent off at that. Starting today, Banana Republic is hosting its annual Friends & Family Sale, giving shoppers sick with spring fever the opportunity to save big before the warm weather hits. There are some exclusions, like shoes and accessories, but for the most part, it's all up for grabs, including airy the brand's collection of stunning linen dresses, skirts, tops, shorts, and more.

Fun fact: Linen isn't only one of the breeziest fabrics, it's also one of the most sustainable. Unlike cotton, the entire flax plant is used in the manufacturing process, cutting down on waste in the cutting room. Flax also requires much less resources to grow, and when untreated, is biodegradable. Tl;dr, you should buy it, if not only for its eco-friendliness than for its airy comfort, which styles like the Sedona Linen Dress ($114) and the Boxy Cropped Linen Shirt ($51) have to spare. Not finding anything you like? Shop the whole sale here.

90s Tank Dress — $60.00

Originally $100, now $60

Available sizes: XXS-XL

Dressing for spring is all about being able to adapt as quickly as the temps do, and this tank dress is perfect for that. Made from a linen-blend, it’s got all the breeziness you want from a linen piece with a smidge of stretch thanks to the additional polyester and rayon. It looks great on its own, and looks just as good layered underneath heavier tops, too, in case spring still hasn’t sprung where you’re wearing it.

Available sizes: 0-20 in tall, regular, and petite

We’re dreaming of putting our chunky sweaters and cozy puffers away for the season and slipping into this cotton dress instead. Perfect for layering with a denim jacket or oversized shacket, this breezy cotton dress is simple, but chic. The empire waist and A-line skirt are timeless, ready to be dressed up or down however you please. A small cutout at the underbust and back give it a smidge of sexy, but more importantly, extra airflow on unseasonably warm spring days.

They’re a low stakes way to get in on that ’90s look, and they’re nearly half off, to boot.

Ribbed Off-Shoulder Top — $27.00

Crafted from a stretch cotton in a ribbed texture, it features an open neckline that hits right below the collarbones, exposing your shoulders while keeping everything else covered. Paired with jeans, slacks, or a flow-y skirt, it’s an ideal layering piece at even more ideal price.
