Ann Taylor Fall 2017: What To Look Forward To

by

What’s the perfect addition to apple picking, colorful leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes, you ask? Ann Taylor’s Fall 2017 line, of course. With summer coming to an inevitable close next month, it’s time to prepare yourself and your wardrobe for fall. Ann Taylor unveiled its fall 2017 lookbook back in April and the trendy outfit selections are perfect for the upcoming season.

 

From bold skirts to cozy overcoats, Ann Taylor composed a sound variety of clothing for autumn. Because the fall 2017 line offers customers both neutral and statement pieces, your outfits can be combined for the ultimate look. Those who enjoy neutrals, such as green, black, and camel, will be more than happy with the line’s selection of pants, sweaters, and skirts. But for those who set their eyes on bolder colors for their wardrobe, patterned skirts, pants, and dresses are perfect choices. And better yet—statement pieces, such as the fall line’s bright-yellow peacoat, add a pop of personality to any outfit.

But the variety doesn’t stop at clothing. While minimalistic accessorizing is in style, the statement accessories offered, including colorful scarves and velvet clutches, are classic completions to any outfit. You can never go wrong with a pair of hoop or dangle earrings to add a little shimmer to the occasion. The line’s ankle boots or strappy heels can instantly dress up your outfit, while a crossbody purse can top off the exact look you’re going for.

All of Ann Taylor’s clothing lines are essential, but the fall 2017 line is the perfect addition to any wardrobe thanks to its trendy pieces. The line flawlessly combines professionalism with personality, one of the latest trends in fashion for this upcoming fall.

How to Add Pantone’s Color of the Year into Your Wardrobe

by

Now that we’re well into 2016, it’s time to bring in the color of the year—or shall we say… colors? Last year, Pantone chose Marsala, which was seen almost everywhere from lipsticks to clothing. This year, we are welcoming the dreamy Rose Quartz and Serenity into our lives. But, if you’re like me, you might be a bit stumped as to how to incorporate these shades into your everyday wardrobe, especially if you’re stuck in the “all black everything” mindset like I am. After tons of searching, here are some key pieces to add to your wardrobe to get in on the trend (and maybe even encourage you to add “wear more colors” to your New Year’s resolutions)!
Silky Smooth
The nice thing about these two colors is that they look absolutely flawless in silk. Whether you opt for the Serenity color or this Rose Quartz shade, you can’t go wrong by pairing it with black slacks, or even grey ones like the model!

You may or may not have a shirt like this lying around in your closet already. Going on a fun mini-vacay? Take this top with you. It gives off the ultimate relaxed look that every busy gal like you needs! Want to add more style points? Grab a pair of Raybans and you’re set.

From stuffed animals and pictures to little trinkets and decor, it’s elephants galore. So, when I found out that Ann Taylor created a limited-edition jewelry collection that not only features elephants, but gives back to a charity with every purchase, it was a no-brainer that I had to share..

Ann Taylor x The Coveteur

by

Ann_Taylor_Changemaker_Anna_Gray_Jen_Steele-134We are all for a match made in heaven, and we’re sharing one love match that we’re sure you’ll love as well. Ann Taylor has partnered with The Coveteur in celebration of Changemakers, women who are making their way in the world through the extraordinary happenings they create. The partnership highlights stories about these women who push to make differences within the world by being innovators, risk-takers, entrepreneurs, and more. Through the perspective of The Coveteur, Changemakers is sharing a look into the lives of three incredible women—Sarah Slutsky from Cinematique, and Jen Steele and Anna Gray, the co-founders of Girls I Know. Each of these dynamic women are styled head-to-toe in Ann Taylor garments by The Coveteur with their looks being fully shoppable via Cinematique, so all of you super fabulous women out there can easily pull off the same glorious looks these gals rock!
Ann_Taylor_Changemaker_Anna_Gray_Jen_Steele-109The inspiration of Changemakers came about when Ann Taylor launched a series on its blog last spring focused on passionate women who inspired the company. Not only were everyday women’s stories shared, but Ann Taylor also hosted a dinner in early December to honor and celebrate said Changemakers. Sarah Slutsky was one of the Changemakers who attended the dinner, thus kicking off this beautiful and moving partnership with the inclusion of Cinematique. We couldn’t be any more excited about this movement focused on empowering and inspiring women who help us aspire to create whatever we love. The more girl power out there, the better! This is to all the women out there striving to do more as they create their own beauty within their lives—this is to all the Changemakers!
For more information on the Changemakers and where you can shop their looks, be sure to visit cinematique.com. You’ll be able to see the looks created for Sarah, Jen, and Anna in action, as well as shop them, too! What do you define as a Changemaker? We believe being authentic, aesthetically creative, and doing what you love no matter what is what makes a Changemaker.
