SALE: Ann Taylor
Ann Taylor is the epitome of classic, professional style. Their suits have provided many a new college graduate with the confidence it takes to get rejected gracefully from their first 20 interviews. Seriously though, if you’re looking for tailored button-down shirts, pencil skirts, sassy heels, and crystal pearls, Ann Taylor is your gal. Take advantage of their sale this week for 25% off two full-price items, or 40% off three or more full-price items with code STOCKUP. (The first price after each item refers to the price if you buy with one other item; the second price after each item refers to the price if you buy with two or more other items.)
Tie Waist Sleeveless Button Down Top – $58.50 or $46.80 ($78)
How beautiful is this blouse? Great colors, amazing draping. Cinches in the middle to accentuate the waist, v-neck to lengthen and slim the neck (and show a bit of decolletage). Dress up, dress down, add jewelry, wear plain. Versatile and lovely.
Trellis Pattern Blouse – $66 or $52.80 ($88)
In contrast to the first pick, this blouse features a high button-up neck and long sleeves. Navy blue background with a white trellis pattern. Keep buttoned to the top for a formal, polished look, or unbutton a few for a more casual look. Available in lots of sizes.
Signature Compact Doubleweave Slim Pants – $73.50 or $68.50 ($98)
Navy blue dress pants are hard to find. These are nice and dark, with a pressed line down the front of the leg, a bit of stretch, and a slim silhouette. Wear with almost any other color: lilac, light brown, pale blue, coral. Navy blue brings out nuances in colors in a way that black does not, so go nuts.
Crepe A-Line Skirt – $88.50 or $70.80 ($118)
Anne Taylor sticks to a lot of basic neutrals, which certainly has its place in the classically-curated closet. But when they do incorporate color, they do it so well. Look at this saturated orange–you just want to reach out and touch it. Made with triacetate (and polyester), it is wrinkle-resistant, so it’s great for long days at the office, or hours spent traveling.
Perfect Skinny Exotic Belt – $28.50 or $22.80 ($38)
Available in navy as well, but we LOVE the espresso melange (despite the obnoxious name). You can wear with any color, including black or brown. Cinch around the waist over a dress, wear lower on the hips with a pencil skirt, pair with a cardigan.
Braided Cuff – $51 or $40.80 ($68)
Since this past fall, it’s been all about the cuffs. Simple cuffs, ornate cuffs, highly structured cuffs, silver cuffs, gold cuffs. Don’t be left behind. This one features lots of detail: mesh braiding and sparkly stones. Because it’s so detailed, pair with a simple blouse and skirt/pants and let the cuff be the main focal point of the ensemble.
Neon Leather Wristlet – $43.50 or $34.80 ($58)
After being relegated to clothing worn by elementary school children only, citrus colors like orange, coral, and yellow have made a big comeback in the past five years or so. This little wristlet is perfect for concert-going, party-hopping, or simply traveling light. Fits a phone, cash, keys and a lip gloss. Pair with neutrals for a bright pop of color, or pair with colors for a true spring inspired outfit.
