The Ann Taylor sale has started and, with markdowns of up to 40% off, we wanted to check in and see if the company's image-overhaul last year has stuck, and whether we could scrounge any goodies for under $100.
The clothes are still sleek and smart—Ann Taylor separates are pretty much the perfect work wardrobe (if you work in an office where smart dressing is encouraged). For us, though, the biggest draw is the accessories selection, where we found these perfect leather pumps, $99 (orig. $155), and these super-preppy and summery round frame sunglasses, $49.99 (orig. $88), for a snip.
