Glamorous Suiting  Sophisticated style is yours in elegant suiting that moves from day to dinner and all your special occasions. Luxurious fabrics like lustrous shantung and exquisite details including rhinestone trim, pearlescent buttons and sequin accents take classic styles and tailor them to your love of luxury. In glamorous suits from the Added Dimensions Collection, you won't just go out…you'll go all out in fashion worth flaunting.

Fabulous Hats  In a word, they're extraordinary. A hat from the Added Dimensions collection is designed to be the focal point of your entire outfit. Towering shapes, shimmering fabrics, organza ribbons and sparkling rhinestones are just some of the details that make these pieces real show-stoppers. These magnificent hats do more than complete your look, they make a statement.

Luxurious Linen  Effortless chic begins with lightweight linen for a luxe look that's a cut above casual. Kissed with rayon for a smooth wrinkle-resistant drape, the Added Dimensions linen collection not only looks fabulous, it's also easy to wear. Embellishments such as shimmering embroidery add a touch of class to exceptionally comfortable styles, creating an outfit that looks as cool as it feels.

Refined Twill  Think of it as fashion your way. The Added Dimensions twill collection features a fabulous trench jacket, slim skirt, duster and pants, which may be worn in many combinations for ultimate versatility. The fundamentally flattering trench and skirt are perfect for the office. Or wear the pants and duster with an artisan wrap for a chic look with a dash of attitude.

The Added Dimensions collection was inspired by Catherines customers who long for a higher level of fashion, but want the careful attention to fit and comfort for which Catherines is famous. "We're so thrilled to offer this exciting new fashion brand to our customers," says Catherines President Carol Williams. "It's all about sophisticated looks that celebrate an individual's personal sense of style. Designed with quality fabrics and artful details, we invite fashion-minded women to embrace our new Added Dimensions Collection — and make it your own."
