Real women live ever more complicated lives. They juggle more activities, play more roles and carry more expectations.

But what women value is what they have always valued: connecting with others, making smart choices, looking and feeling great. Living life fully means women choose to play all their roles with confidence and style.

That is why Ann Inc. is in business.

For more than half a century, they have evolved with the needs of real women who live full, active lives.  Their values are her values. They get that a woman expresses herself through what she wears – at work, at home and at play.

To meet her needs, they design pieces for her life and her changing roles to help her look and feel confident and beautiful. They create rich experiences that connect with her wherever she is, inspire her style and simplify her choices.

ANN associates are committed to and driven by a simple but profound mission – ‘to inspire and connect with our clients to put their best selves forward every day'. This is evident in their great brands as well as in their commitment to operating their business responsibly and thoughtfully. This commitment means that their clients can look great and feel great about the clothes they wear, and it means that as a business they are holding themselves to high standards.  It means forging strong partnerships with their suppliers so that products are made ethically.  It means investing in new programs and innovation to minimize their impact on the environment. And it means making meaningful contributions to their communities.
