First Look: Four Genius Style Tips From Ann Taylor's Roaring '20s Party

The crowd at Ann Taylor’s fall 2010 collection was surprisingly really cool, and so were the clothes. Once upon a time, Ann Taylor was my mother’s go-to store for work wardrobe essentials, but the brand definitely went up a few notches on the cool scale with their twenties-inspired collection for fall. It-girl Rachel Bilson even made an appearance, and while I haven’t seen any paparazzi pics of the starlet shopping at Ann Taylor, her outfit alone is proof that you must get thee to your nearest store. The collection won’t be in stores until this fall, but check out four styling tips we took away from the presentation that you can use now:

1. Buy some fringe. Rachel Bilson (left) wore the cutest pair of fringed black shorts, and the Nanette Lepore Festive Light Miniskirt below ($149, down from $298) is a great piece to introduce the twenties trend into your wardrobe.

2. Pair an anorak with your work outfit. I loved the idea of pairing a anorak with a pencil skirt for work, and this Kenneth Cole New York ‘City’ Anorak ($98) (below) is a nice alternative to a trench coat for spring.

3. Add a touch of leopard to your neutral outfits. The presentation was full of splashes of leopard, and it made the outfits look hip. These Calvin Klein Women’s Lexa II Ballet Flats ($93.05) will pop with any outfit.

4. Wear your ornate rhinestone jewels for day or night. As soon as I walked into the presentation, I was almost blinded by the amounts of rhinestone accessories, and they looked really cool with the everyday pieces. Wearing this Rachel Leigh Zelda Waltz Layering Necklace ($132) is a nice way to get in on the trend.
