Tanya Taylor is a newer brand to me. Always admiring the clothes, I didn't know if the clothes would fit me. I've experienced plenty of “extended size” fashion brands that don't seem to know what to do with bodies that wear more than a size 12. Too straight, sleeves too long, weird fit. But I now own several pieces from Tanya Taylor and find the quality stellar and the fit quite great too. And this Tanya Taylor sale is a great time to try out the brand.
As mentioned, Tanya Taylor is not cheap. But as someone who is sick of buying mediocre polyester dresses from department stores that I hate by the end of the season, I am looking for pieces that fit, are well made, quality fabrics, but aren't boring. And that's why I keep gravitating to Tanya Taylor.
The Tanya Taylor Sale You Don't Want to Miss
Tell Me About Tanya Taylor
We've become used to apparel brands having the names of women but actually being a creation by some dudes in a conference room in some office building. However, Tanya Taylor is an actual human. Tanya Taylor is a Canadian who received her Bachelor of Commerce in Finance from McGill University, did a summer at Central Saint Martins, and is a graduate of the AAS Fashion Design program at Parsons School of Design. Taylor started her eponymous fashion brand in 2012 and is currently the CEO and Creative Director of the brand.
Not afraid of speaking up, Taylor has used her brand to encourage US residents to register to vote, to promote a nonprofit she is a part of that helps low income Toronto parents, visit the White House in honor of Women's History Month, and donate product, proceeds, and time to many important organizations.
Seen on celebs like Aidy Bryant, Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, and Kerry Washington, Tanya Taylor is known for feminine yet modern designs incorporating bold colors, beautiful florals and prints hand painted by the Tanya Taylor team, decorative stitching, and my personal favorite, stripes. From work to wedding guest to weekend, Tanya Taylor apparel is upbeat, versatile, timeless, yet never boring or basic.
Tanya Taylor is sold at higher-end department stores and boutiques like Dia & Co, Shopbop, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman, but the best selection of size and style, as well as the best prices and sale selection is on the Tanya Taylor site. Shipping is free for orders $250+ and returns have a 30-day window and $9.95 restocking fee. And New Yorkers, stay tuned as Tanya Taylor is opening a standalone store on Madison Avenue this fall!
How Does Tanya Taylor Fit?
All of Tanya Taylor's ready to wear standard line is available in sizes XXS (00) to XL (14). After designing a dress for actress Aidy Bryant to wear to a late night talk show, Tanya Taylor began offering much of the collection in extended sizes 1X (16) to 3X (22). While I am often a 16 in higher-end labels, I am a 14 in Tanya Taylor, which per the size chart is a 40.5″ bust, 33.5″ waist, and 43.5″ hip. I have found sizing consistent across pieces. Tanya Taylor does not offer petite or tall options; product details offer measurements on lengths of pieces to help you find styles that may work with your unique figure.
Tanya Taylor Summer in Style Sale
Now through July 4th, Tanya Taylor is having their Summer in Style sale with some of the best prices all year on clothes to wear now and come fall. Save an additional 30% on every single item at this link with promo code SUMMER30. I own a few pieces part of the sale and wanted to share me in Tanya Taylor as I am not the usual height and shape of models used on their website and social.
I love my Tanya Taylor dresses because they are elevated statement makers. I don't need to worry about accessorizing or even makeup when wearing them. They garner compliments but aren't ever too flashy or gaudy, and while they look very on trend, they aren't specific to a fashion moment so they still look chic seasons from now.
Tanya Taylor is a bit more feminine than I usually wear. I'll admit, beyond the Willow Dress I'm wearing above and the Charlie Dress I have recommended many times in the past, I didn't know if these types of pieces would fit with my aesthetic and the accessories in my closet. But come summer, I find I really like the romantic feel of a feminine dress, and they're perfect for summer occasions like weddings, showers, and date nights. They look good with heels, but still look dressy when paired with flat sandals.
Some of my picks from the sale:
top row: pink print dress (other prints available) | yellow dress | stripe dress | black print dress
bottom row: white top and white skirt | striped dress | floral dress (other prints available) | pink dress
I know that Tanya Taylor may not be the pricepoint or aesthetic for all of you. However, I like to draw attention to brands you may not know that offer quality fashion beyond a size 12. And I figured this sale was a great way to try out this brand that I've enjoyed wearing and find carries great clothes for work, special occasions, and elevated casual situations!
