There’s nothing quite like the feeling I get when I score a fashion-forward piece at a steal. Combine that with all the warm, cozy fall feels ushering in sweater weather (not to mention, all the pumpkin staples at Trader Joe’s), and I’m one happy gal. And there’s one place I can count on that brings the two together (and where I can’t help but walk out with more than I came for). You guessed it — Target.
“Tarjay,” as its loyal shoppers affectionately call it (me included), has done it again with this year’s fall designer collaboration. This season it teamed up with Rachel Comey, Victor Glemaud, Sandy Liang, and Nili Lotan for a limited-time collection that doesn’t disappoint. Rachel Comey brings playful prints in sophisticated silhouettes from matching sets to outerwear, while Victor Glemaud lives up to his rep with bold statement knitwear. For the ever-trendy aesthetic cottagecore (think: feminine, ethereal vibes), look no further than Sandy Liang’s dresses. Finally, there’s Nili Lotan dishing out her classic and minimalistic point of view with slip dresses and jumpsuits.
The 180-piece collection, which ranges in price from $15 to $80, is shoppable on Target’s website and in select locations.
Thanks to the four collabs, I’m all set with my fall wardrobe this year. All I’m missing is a shacket (read: shirt + jacket in one that you can wear as either), but that’s nothing pressing “Add to cart” in my trusty (albeit dangerous) Target app won’t fix.
Ahead, my favorite pieces from each designer.
No fall wardrobe is complete without a go-to sweater that is as comfy as it is chic. And this Rachel Comey pullover is just the ticket. The best part? The abstract animal print, of course. The sweater serves as the perfect complement to jeans, skirts, trousers, you name it. I coupled it with these faux leather Who What Wear x Target trousers for an extra fall-y feel.
I’m a sucker for a matching set, and this Victor Glemaud polka dot number checks all the boxes for me. Worn separately, can you easily mix and match the pieces with items you already own (think: jeans, sweaters, graphic tees)? Yep. The cardigan and skirt duo can be dressed up or down. Check. Is it equal parts trendy and classic? Definitely. I wore the pieces together here, but you can bet I’m going to mix it up and style the skirt with a floral top, like this or this (don’t be afraid to mix prints!).
Not all sweatshirts are created equal. Case in point: this Sandy Liang floral printed hoodie. Do I already have enough sweatshirts? Probably. But not any that add a fun, feminine flair to the otherwise mundane style. Plus, it had me at the ruffles. I styled it with a pair of high-waisted jeans and gave it a little tuck in the front to give it shape. And I completed the look with flat mules to continue the feminine-meets-sporty theme. You’ll most likely see me wearing the hoodie with joggers on a Sunday morning (because, athleisure FTW).
My love for jumpsuits runs deep. And this one-and-done piece by Nili Lotan is no exception. Utilitarian-inspired, it’s both timeless and effortless, not to mention versatile. Don it with heels or booties for a night out or go for a casual weekend look and finish the ‘fit with sneakers. Whichever way you go, round out your ensemble with a camel coat and, voila, it’s instantly elevated.
The perfect fall transition piece in my book? The slip dress hands down. Nili Lotan delivered again with this paisley print frock. It’s lightweight fabric makes it the ideal layering base. Whether you wear it alone or throw a long cardigan over it (and accessorize with a hat, like this one, while you’re at it), it’s worthy of being worn on repeat. I can tell you it’s currently in heavy rotation among my fall staples.
