Ann Taylor Remix Gets Rave Review

Ann Taylor Remix Gets Rave Review

 

Um, is it just me or is Ann Taylor suddenly amazing? What happened? I don’t think I’ve been there since the mid 90’s with my mom to purchase some ill-fitting work pants for her. (shudder) Now apparently they’ve recruited Kate Hudson and it’s all suddenly sparkly, à la J.Crew and fashion forward, yet affordable?

I kind of have a feeling they were targeting my exact demographic (single, mid-twenties to early-thirties) since their advertising somehow hasn’t penetrated my brain until this very moment. It’s pretty sad that nothing that they’ve done with the slew of celebrity endorsers they’ve had over the years; Demi Moore, Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum, Naomi Watts or Milla Jovovich have actually made me think about shopping at Ann Taylor.

Until Kate.

Or maybe it’s just because I would never, EVER associate Kate with an ill-fitting women’s suit (this brand image is obviously a result of my traumatizing childhood experience at Ann Taylor…but be honest, isn’t it yours?) I could kind of actually see the aforementioned stars (although they are usually CHIC as-all-get-out) having a moment with (cringe) trouser pants and (gag) “work wear separates”

Kate is like the ANTI-pant suit.

While I was initially attracted to their fab NEON jewelry that Kate is wearing in the ad, the entire collection is totally capturing my heart right now! So grab your mom and get to steppin’! Let me know what you think about Ann Taylor’s new collection in the comments section below too!

Check out my top 5 (everything is SO cute!), 6 fave pieces below:

Omg! I thought it was just me! I bought a sparkly sweater from Ann Taylor around the holidays and kept it to myself since the last time I set foot in Ann Taylor was 7th grade!
Now I will shout it from the mountain tops! I'm a fan of Ann! :)
Great article J!
