Ann Taylor Fall 2011
Right: Sleeveless trench topper, $228, downtown sheath dress, $118, double wrap skinny belt, $78
It's a little hard to think about fall fashion while battling this heatwave, but pre-fall merchandise has started to hit stores. Check out what Ann Taylor has in store for the upcoming fall season.
The modern, city chic collection focuses on elongated slimming silhouettes and simple layering pieces. You'll see a lot of color blocking this fall - black, camel and white neutrals mixed with pops of red and orange.
In September, lookout for deep, rich tones, like loden green and luxurious fabrics detailed with quilting, patches, tassels and buckles. Key fall pieces include wide-leg trousers, lace tops and a tweed jacket with luxe leather trim. Consider adding some extra pieces to your wardrobe, like a faux fur vest or an exotic skin belt.
If you love animal prints, you'll want to add some leopard or cheetah print pieces to your wardrobe.
