Ann Taylor Summer 2010

With spring finally here and summer around the corner (can't wait for summer Fridays!), I am looking forward to wearing mini dresses and skirts, sleeveless tunics and halter tops.

For early Summer 2010, Ann Taylor is inspired by the hidden gardens of Charleston. The focus is on lace details, classic black and white, pops of sorbet pastel colors and vintage-inspired jewelry, creating a refined feminine chic, defining the well-dressed woman.

You can't go wrong with classic black and white pieces, like the crepe ribbon skirt, boyfriend jacket or cotton silk double-breasted jacket. 1/2 sleeve crewneck cardigans are a must-have and great for layering.

In June you'll see a kaleidoscope of exotic prints and vibrant colors inspired by Gauguin's Tahiti and the natural artistry of the islands, providing a twist of urban sophistication.

As summer continues, lush colors and prints are inspired by aqua skies and azure water, as shimmering silks and jewels create a refreshing look.

This has become one of my favorites - the dramatic Noir necklace, $158 (right)

If you are looking for a piece to add to your wardrobe, make sure you add the cotton trench shirtdress (right) to your list ($128). It's suitable for work and for going out afterwards.

This pavé encrusted stone necklace ($78) is at the top of my list for summer jewlery.

Heirloom bib necklace, $68

Take your pick. Dress up your outfit and add a luxurious, lightweight layer with mirage, floral and vibrant animal print, sheer and metallic luxe and washed cashmere scarves.
