Cachè Spring 2012 Collection

If I said the name Cachè among friends, stories of prom dresses and winter formals would immediately begin, I’m sure its probably the same for you. Though they’re known for their beautiful prom and evening dresses (like the Fringe Beaded Strapless Cocktail Dress and Vintage Chiffon Beaded V-Neck Gown with Faux Belt – yes the belt is actually crystals and beads sewn onto the dress – featured directly below), Cachè does have a sportswear collection.

The Cachè sportswear collection features a mix of casual and sophisticated separates that take you from day to night. Chic day dresses to stunning evening styles and special event picks. The collection combines comfort with stylish classic styles, boasts bold and exciting prints and rich textures that transition easily between seasons.

A few of my favorite sportswear pieces from the collection include the very chic Belted Orchid Printed Tunic with Crotchet Trim in the photo directly above, the Belted Scoop Neck Dress with faux leather belt at waist and neck featured below – a hanger doesn’t do it justice

and this Faux Suede Grommet Sweater Jacket – a great way to add a bit of edge to a clean simple look

Maybe its time to make a little room in your closet for a few more Cachè pieces.

Ann Taylor Spring 2012 Collection

Ann Taylor has wows me again with their incredible ability to capture the true essence of today’s young woman. The Ann Taylor Spring 2012 is packed with super flattering silhouettes, bold colors and lots of it, effortless chic styles, neutrals highlighted with pops of color and eye-catching accessories that are all remarkably easy to fit into any wardrobe

Featuring sleek modern styles, graphic designs, bold prints and bright colors, the Ann Taylor Spring 2012 Collection satisfies every style palette. More than a few looks were standouts including this oh so brilliant modern lace sheath dress accented with a skinny neon orange belt; these two colorblock sheaths (the pairing of the day-glo orange highlights the classic colors perfectly)

Other favs (and boy were there many) included, the below chiffon tiered shell paired with pink crepe skirt and crop jacket, the fun garden floral sheath paired with not-so-classic black jacket and obi belt and solid and print colorblock cowl neck top

The colorblocking naturally continued on to shoes as where we saw lots of black leather/nude leather and black and natural raffia combos with a some of the brights played into the more strappy styles

Jewelry was bold in design and color as statement brights were seen in just about every hue

As previously stated, the Ann Taylor Spring 2012 collection has looks to satisfy every style palette – the colors and looks feature colors from one end of the spectrum to the other. Those with more classic tastes and those who are more bold (and everyone in between) will be very happy with everything this collection has to offer.
