Target Fall 2012 Preview Event

Target Fall 2012 Preview

This afternoon I attended the Target Fall 2012 press preview held at the Hudson Hotel in New York City. Here are some of the highlights I snapped, showcasing the top trends you can expect to see in Target stores and online at this fall (which actually starts in late July and August, so you won't have to wait too long). From the Merona line, I saw lots of ladylike looks with a retro vibe (think Mad Men) that included pencil skirts, collared blouses, and shirtdresses. From Mossimo, I spotted colored cords in every shade, chambray shirts, printed denim (leopard, python and floral), colorblocking on tops and frocks, and lots of long knits for layering. Across the board, I was noticing tons of stripes, tiny polka-dots, tasteful leopard print and rich colors like magenta, goldenrod and teal - all very, very good news if you've been loving the direction of fashion right now...which I am, so way to go Target!

That trench is AMAZING!

Saw the leopard jacket you tweeted earlier & I'm lusting over that as well.

Love how Target continues to step its game up. I just hope their price range doesn't change dramatically.

The trench coat looks very nice. Almost Burberry-esque.
