Off the Rack: September Fashions at Target


Fall fashion love at Target

Earlier I shared some photos of the shoes at Target, now here's a look at some of the fashions. Nothing really screamed "buy me" but there were a few nice pieces worth noting. Let's start with the polka dot blazer by Merona (above, $34.99) - who can resist polka dots? Speaking of irresistible, the juniors section had a few trendy animal motif sweaters that made me smile (but I think I'm too old to actually wear a bunny sweater). Moving on - Mossimo has some of the most fashion forward pieces, included a black moto vest and plaid short sleeve sweater. Merona delivers great staples, like a pencil skirt in leopard print or houndstooth. And if you're looking for a basic denim jacket, cargo jacket or chambray shirt, you'll find all of them at Target for under $35 each.

Are the selections at Target a bit boring right now or is it just my store?

I have to say I love the paisley print pencil skirt with the striped trim and I LOVE that moto vest. I'll probably give it a couple of weeks to wait out a sale though because I can't really honestly say that I NEED a moto vest :-)

BB: I have a theory about your "boring" comment. I tend to agree with you, but I think it might be because Target is doing such a great job at copying what other brands are doing that every retailer is starting to look the same. For instance: JCrew does an animal motif sweater, so Target does one too. Zara makes a plaid pencil skirt, and Target makes a similar one. The Limited does a faux-leather t-shirt and Target copies it (I actually own The Limited example, FYI). It's almost like fashion is getting so repetitive that it's starting to seem boring.

Interesting theory - it's like even the copies get copied these days! And there's a shrinking distinction between stores, from J.Crew to LOFT they're all tackling the same trends in similar ways...

I really like the look of the houndstooth jacket but I don't know if it is must have. I was in the store Friday and nothing is really jumping into my cart. I usually will pick up a couple dresses...but this year they are kinda of "meh". Here is hoping the holiday options are better and also the Target local to me did not even get 1 piece of Philip Lim...so there goes that lemming

I've actually been quite impressed with Target's offerings for fall and agree that they seem to be doing a great job of doing their version of other brand's more popular items. The quality is a little hit and miss on some items but overall I think it's pretty good. Great post as always though!!
