Step up your summer work wardrobe with Ann Taylor's summer 2011 collection.
Last week SC was invited to checkout Ann Taylor's summer 2011 collection. Every year Ann Taylor has been stepping up their style game with classic styles and trendy details. For 2011 the summer collection takes us on a Mexican safari with colors like warm browns, golds, and deep oranges and reds. The safari feel didn't stop wit the colors, AT's hefty concentration on animal and watercolor prints gave us even more of a safari vacation feel. We loved how AT is starting to play with shapes. Gone are the days of bland shift dresses. AT has added ruffled hems, tulip cuts, and knotted waists dresses to spice things up.
Fabrics were light and stretchy offering a comfortable feel and the jewelry was bold and gaudy enough to add flair to any of the simple flowy maxi dresses and structured suits. Three of our favorite pieces were the tulip style watercolor dress, an all white short suit, and a red one shoulder ruffled skirt dress. This collection's is perfect for the end of summer especially for those August getaways.
