Ann Taylor Pre-Fall 2011

As a (budding) professional woman, I love Ann Taylor.  Although the beginning of 1L year means that I'll likely be spending more time in jeans and oversized sweaters than suits and silk tops, I'm beginning to work on building a professional wardrobe.

Here are a few of my picks, all from the Ann Taylor website.

Lyrical Forms Print Top

I love how this top is a modern take on the silk shell.  It would be perfect under a suit for a professional event and it would look equally fabulous with jeans or black skinny pants.

Refined Snake Print Shell

I love the snake print!  And the tie around the neck adds a little dose of style without taking it into work-inappropriate territory.  

Knit Interlacing Movements Dress

I will definitely be picking this dress up.  Between the just-above-the-knee length, the seaming at the waist, and the bateau neckline, this is sure to be super flattering!  Plus, knit jersey is just such an easy, wearable material.  

Striped Pullover with Shoulder Buttons

Love this.  A girl in one of my classes last semester had a sweet sweater from Ann Taylor with similar buttons at the shoulder...I was so disappointed when it was sold out in my size.  This is something I could definitely wear casually to class with jeans, too!

Colorblock Tee

Ok, so this is definitely more causal than professional, but I love colorblocking.  I'm normally not a huge skinny jeans person, but I'm thinking the slightly oversized fit of this top would work really nicely with a not-too-long pair of skinnies.  

Do you shop at Ann Taylor?  Do you like the pre-fall collection?  What are your favorite pieces?

  1. The pre-fall collection is so fun and young! I really like the lattice dress. It could be so easy to dress up & down.
