Originally inspired by the name of a dressmaker’s top-selling design, Ann Taylor opened its first store in 1954 and now has over 320 locations across the United States, as well as a strong online presence. Once a classics-driven brand, today’s Ann Taylor is a modern interpretation of refined women’s fashions. From suits and shoes to dresses and denim, Ann Taylor’s creations are stylish with a decidedly feminine flair, effortlessly fulfilling a woman’s wardrobe wish list. Ann Taylor is a division of New York-based Ann Taylor Stores Corporation and features three other divisions: LOFT, Ann Taylor Factory and LOFT Outlet.
Though generous in space, Ann Taylor’s store interiors possess a more unique feel than your average women’s apparel chain. Fashions are striking against the monochromatic theme of taupe, cream and brown, with contemporary lighting and wood tables boasting accessory arrangements that set the scene. Apparel is arranged by collection, with shoes and handbags displayed along wall insets and jewelry attractively presented upon tabletops.
The sophisticated yet modish lines presented by Ann Taylor are well-suited to the various lifestyles of the women wearing them. Sumptuous silk blouses, sleeveless satin shells and tropical wool blend trousers are smart for day and, when paired with a bold yet timeless pearl and pave necklace from the jewelry collection, also make a statement for any evening out. Ann Taylor has cornered the dress market with designs that exude a classy air of decades past mixed with modern twists. More casual designs include basics like cap-sleeved cotton tees in rich colors and denim that dares to go trendy. With intricate details like grosgrain button plackets, precisely-placed neckline notches and unexpected pops of chic chiffon, one may easily mistaken these beautiful clothes for their more outrageously-priced designer counterparts.
Ann Taylor also offers an exclusive Weddings & Events line. This elegant collection is available online only and is comprised of well-designed Bridesmaids and Cocktail dresses, Shoes and Accessories, as well as more relaxed Honeymoon apparel perfect for any romantic send-off.
The ANN Cares program is committed to women, children and the environment. Partnerships include The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Susan G. Komen For The Cure and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the company also supports various New York City efforts and scholarship grants. Stores have instilled a “Green Initiative” which is comprised of six sustainability programs aimed at reducing energy and waste while increasing the usage of ecologically-balanced elements.
With a recognized impact on today’s fashionable woman that runs over 50 years strong, Ann Taylor proves there is definite beauty in history.
