What to Buy at Ann Taylor for Early Fall

Right now, Ann Taylor has the prettiest pieces for Fall. After what feels like an eternity of head-to-toe neutrals and loungewear, AT is breathing some life into our closets with fresh and cheerful updates. 

As part of our “What to Buy at” series, I rounded up my top picks from their new arrivals. 

What to Buy at Ann Taylor

What to Buy at Ann Taylor in September

Many of us grew up with Ann Taylor as a cornerstone in our wardrobes. The brand makes getting dressed easy, with coordinating pieces, colors, and prints to help busy women pull a look together quickly.

But when you dress head to toe from a brand or a single store, you start to lose your personality and authenticity. 

While I’m all for a system that helps you create a uniform of sorts, you run the risk of missing out on the opportunity to develop your unique style. You don’t want to look like you stepped out of a catalog.

Our What to Buy at Series was designed to recreate the experience of working with a stylist. These are the pieces I would put in your dressing room. Recommendations are based on everything I know about our readers who are looking for help creating a timeless, classic, modern wardrobe on a realistic budget.

Double Knit Blazer

Ann Taylor Double Knit Blazer in Green

Double Knit Blazer, $159 25% OFF! USE CODE: WORKIT

If you want to add some polish to your wardrobe this fall, a double knit blazer may be the way to go. It’s the best of both worlds, providing the structure of a blazer and the comfort of a knit. Ideal for layering over anything from a simple jeans and tee shirt look, to a dress or skirt. 

Available in regular and petite, in 00 – 18 in “pine” above or camel.

Ann Taylor Shirred Blouse in Orange

Shirred Blouse, $79.50 

If this isn’t the most divine color, I don’t know what is. Available in regular and petite in XXS -XXL. I’d pair it dark jeans and leopard flats. Also available in classic white here

Plaid Jacquard Sweater

Ann Taylor Plaid Jacquard Cardigan

Plaid Jacquard Cardigan, $98 

I stopped scrolling when I came across this sweet cardigan and immediately added it to my cart. I love everything about it, from the modern cut to the fresh color combination. Available in XS – L in regular and petite.

Wear it with light boyfriend jeans and these popular loafers

Plaid Sweater Tee

Ann Taylor Plaid Sweater Tee

Plaid Sweater Tee, $79.50 

If you are in the office full or part time, I bet you need a few updated tops to pair with basic bottoms. I am crazy for this pretty plaid sweater top. You can pair it with burgundy bottoms, or these Reader Favorite dark trouser cut jeansAvailable in XXS – XL.

Faux Suede Shell

Ann Taylor Faux Suede Shell

Faux Suede Shell, $69.50 

The soft, faux suede of this simple shell provides texture to your overall look. Available in XXS – XXL. I would wear this with black jeans and ankle boots for a night out. 

Boyfriend Perfect Shirt

Ann Taylor Perfect Boyfriend Shirt in Pink

Boyfriend Perfect Shirt, $69.50 

A crisp button-down is a staple of my work-from-home wardrobe. Paired with jeans and flats, it feels pulled together with being complicated. This shirt is slightly oversized but not too big, and the pale pink color adds a feminine hue to your outfit. 

Available in XXS – XXL.
