8 Under $20: Extra Sophisticated at Ann Taylor Loft

Normally when my mother drags me into the petite section of Ann Taylor I end up getting super angry.  First of all, because my mother is in the petite section and nothing fits me.  Second of all, because I’m in Ann Taylor.  Between all of the pearls and khaki, I feel like I fast-forwarded to a life of tea and subscriptions to More and O magazine.

But lately, a change has been in the air. I walked into Ann Taylor the other afternoon, my sneakers scuffing against the light wood floor, and I found things….wait for it…. that I liked.  Actually, loved.  The store is so sophisticated and classy and all of the clothes are high quality and extra comfortable. I patted my mother on the back and frolicked over to the clearance aisle.  Now it’s your turn!

Oh, and all of these items? You can take an extra 25% off! Woot!

For only $9.88 these cute, flattering, light bronze shorts are a must-buy.  I know it’s getting a little chilly out there, so pair these with a funky pair of tights and be warm and adorbs day or night.

OK so, maybe this isn’t the most sophisticated BUT you might as well stock up for next summer.  Havaianas are the most amazing flip flop you can own.  Their cushioned base and traction bottoms make for the perfect day shoe.  Ann Taylor has them in so many colors, too!  (Pink, gold, light coral, mint green, navy, grape, silver…) The best news: they are only $12.88, so buy a few.

It’s time to throw away the Hanes cotton tees and trade up for something just as simple but way more luxe. This shirt is extremely soft, a flattering length and ideal for all that layering you’ll be doing for the next 6 months. Plus, it comes in a rainbow of colors: lipstick red, olive, tropical rose, chrome, vintage blue and surf spray. BTW, surf spray is the color of a Florida hotel bathroom. It’s beautiful!

This petite rosette ribbed tank would give your outfit an instant glam update.  You can tuck this girly tee into a high waisted skirt, throw in some flats and and call yourself classy. I’m really loving this.  I just hope it doesn’t make your armpits itchy… Meh, just another pprice to pay for style!

Is it just the picture or do these look extremely comfortable?  I feel like I could sleep in them. ANd I’m really digging the color. There’s just something so relaxed about the whole thing. These are modern and super classy with a slim fit in the hip and thigh and a classic five pocket style. Perfect for a day at the libs.

Since jewel tones are so in this season, this charmeuse skirt is a perfect selection. (It also comes in black.) The ruched waist  is super flattering for your silhouette.  And can you imagine how great this skirt would look with a pair of black booties?! I’m squealing in excitement.  Me wantie.

Pretty as a picture, agreed?  This drapey watercolor cami would look alluring and fabulous with a pair of skinny jeans and a martini. And thanks to the design, no one will know when you spill. I dig it.

Basic no more with this number!  I love this tank because the color makes it pretty and chain brings on the punk.  Rawr.
