Ann Taylor Metropolitan Shift Dress

I once associated Ann Taylor with my career-minded mother, but as I’ve matured and AT has developed youthfulness, its styles have hit a sweet spot and eased seamlessly into my wardrobe. My shifting perspective is legitimized by the sassy Kate Hudson who lends her glowing face to the new fall collection.

Several years ago, I read the days of women immediately switching suits for lounge upon arriving home from work are gone. Today’s fashion is about pieces that transition in time with your evolving agenda.

Fittingly, the AT Metropolitan Shift is billed the “go everywhere dress.” 

To start, doubleweave fabric forms a timeless silhouette in trend-right jeweled azure. The shape is conservative, yet form-fitting, making it applicable for work, weekend, and what falls between. An exposed back zipper is just the kind of contemporary detail that has revitalized the brand and drawn a new demographic of fashion-minded consumers into its traditionally professional following.

Not only is this highly-anticipated shift appropriate for young and old, work day & date night, but warm and cool. Mostly polyester, you can wear now with naked legs and T-straps, while 34% virgin wool fabric will keep you warm later. Delightfully, the slip-on-and-go faithful's ¾-sleeve cuts out the need for a cover-up at conservative headquarters. Just add accessories.

Revisit the retailer to lock and load go-anywhere, do-anything pieces laboring so you look effortless.
