Happy New Year! Now that we are in 2010, it's time to get a head start on updating your spring wardrobe. Ann Taylor Spring 2010 will start hitting stores in February, so be prepared - make a list of what you want! Expect to see soft, fluid feminine silhouettes in dusty pale neutrals and shades of corals and pinks, as well as a floral-inspired palette and watercolor prints. A sea of oceanic blues, black and white are inspired by picturesque shores of Monaco, Cannes and St. Tropez circa 1920.

I spotted a lot of favorites during the spring preview - deconstructed silk trench ($228), which looks great when paired with a short sheath dress, wool crepe shawl collar jacket ($228) and wool crepe pencil skirt ($108), perfect for the office and silk fringe jacket ($298), which can be paired with skirts, dresses, black pants or dark jeans.

It's very easy to update a classic look with a little feminine edge. Wear black pants with ruffle flounce blouses ($88), accordion pleated tops ($88), thousand petal ($88) and silk habotai starburst ($68) shells to soften the look.

Let's not forget the jewelry. Ann Taylor has come up with several beautiful, sparkly pieces including multi-strand and double strand chain necklaces. If you like pearls, aim for modern sophistication with the pearl bow and ribbon necklaces and bracelets.
One can never have enough scarves. It's a very easy way to add color to a neutral look. The skinny ruffle ($38) and metallic sheer luxe and sheer luxe ($48) scarves come in multiple colors, so I'm sure you'll find one you love.
