We stopped by the Ann Taylor spring preview at the top of the Gramercy Hotel last night and while the collection didn’t knock our socks off (despite their J.Crew-ification), the accessories did. There were shots of lime green throughout the collection, basics that will be good staples for the office, and a few pieces–silk blouses (since we’re on a silk blouse kick lately), a tiered lace skirt, and some good J Brand Houlihan cargo knock-offs–stood out. But it was the accessories that shone. Particularly the burlap and leather strappy sandals with a thick stacked heel and the estate-style jewelry.
Elizabeth Banks, Katrina Bowden, Olivia Palermo stopped by to preview the collection as well, and Au Revoir Simone provided the live soundtrack.
Take a look at the accessories, and some standout pieces for spring.
