5 Spring Target Fashion Finds

It’s been a long time since I shopped at Target and bought anything for myself, so imagine my surprise when I found not one but five finds worth sharing.

A couple of things to remember: First, I know there is no color. That’s the point. Generally speaking, when I buy an inexpensive piece from Amazon, Target, or Old Navy, I buy it in a neutral. It looks more elevated. 

No matter how much you spend, I want you to get as much use out of your purchases as possible. And, personally, I’ll get a ton more wear out of a tan stripe shirt than a yellow one. Buy what you’ll get the most use out of.

Second, impressively, most of Target’s clothing goes up to a 4X, so an excellent size range is available.

Finally, these items remind me of the good old days of Target. We’re not wardrobing ourselves here, but we can find some fresh pieces or trends at reasonable prices to bring the fun back into getting dressed.

5 Spring Target Fashion Finds

Tee, $8 | Shirt, $25| Sandals, $32.99| Earrings, $12.99|Clutch, $28

Let’s start with this boxy tee shirt with an extended shoulder. It’s not too boxy, but it’s not fitted to the body.

If you have a hard-to-definition waistline, even a subtle detail at the shoulder that slightly pulls it out will help make your waist feel smaller.

I picked up one in black and white (for only $8) in the medium, available in sizes XS—4X.

I’m taking them to my tailor to have them shortened so I don’t have to tuck them in. It’s about a $10 alteration. I wouldn’t usually spend more on the alteration than the item, but the top is still under $20 in this case.

Wear with shorts, jeans, or wide-leg linen pants.

Next, their straw clutch from the A New Day™ is the item that started my deep dive into what’s new at Target.

Accessories with raffia details are everywhere and make perfect sense for spring. For under $30, this was a no-brainer. It is also available in matte black, but it’s nothing special; the real impact is in the textured option.

Long-time readers know I love a button-down, so I couldn’t pass up this linen-blend shirt from Universal Thread™. Available in sizes XS—4X for only $25, I sized up to the large.

You have nine color options here. I went with the tan stripe to wear with white trousers, a dark tan belt, and matching sandals.

I’ll also throw it over shorts and a tank at the beach.

Just yesterday, I shared 10 Spring Shoes for Women, and in it, we talk about the flat-footbed sandal, which is sort of like an updated, “dressy” version of a Birkenstock.

Then I found this pair of sandals, in cream (above) or black with a gold buckle, for $32.99. I would go with the cream and pair them with shorts, flowy dresses, and light-colored linen bottoms.

Finally, I wear the same jewelry daily, rotating through different but similar pieces.

Except in the summer when I have a little more fun. I don’t know why.

And I love Tuckernuck’s accessories, but (1) they are expensive, and (2) they tend to be too big.

So, I bought this pair of threaded earrings from SUGARFIX by BaubleBar for $13. They are also available in black, yellow, and purple. They have the same feel for much less in a more wearable size.
