If you were to list some of the top staple stores in the country, Ann Taylor would undoubtedly come up. That’s right: The brand that’s located in most major malls is known for stocking those go-to essentials to fill out your work wardrobe, along with offering a variety of forward, on-trend pieces to round out your everyday casual rotation as well. In fact, after breezing through the store recently with a friend, I realized that I’m actually going to start recommending the line to my inner circle on the reg for those polished yet cool finds that won’t totally break the bank. (PS: Ann Taylor often has readily available discount codes of up to 40% off.) To get a sense of the pieces I’m feeling at the moment, I rounded up 20 items worth checking out. You won’t be disappointed.
