There’s no denying that stripes are one of the hottest trends this season, from the runways to the red carpet, they are EVERYWHERE. The great news is, there are many ways to wear stripes: thick and bold, skinny and subtle, horizontal, vertical, even chevron — and you don’t have to spend a fortune to find your perfect striped piece. To get you started, here are some affordable favorites from Target:


Striped dresses are a bold way to sport the trend this spring. This black and white stripe dress from Merona ($20) boasts a classic shape with a chic red belt — perfect for the office. A more playful and flirty version from Mossimo ($27.99) features variegated stripes colorblocked with a gorgeous cobalt color.

The Ponte Stripe Jacket from Mossimo ($34.99) comes in graphic black and white or nautical navy and white stripes. We love this with everything from cropped jeans to white Bermuda shorts.

A lightweight sweater is perfect for the unpredictable weather of spring. This Xhilaration Boat Neck Open Knit Sweater ($22.99) flaunts the bold graphic stripes that are so on-trend this season and comes in several color variations. The Mossimo Supply Co. Long Sleeve V-Neck Tee ($12) comes in many colors, making it the perfect layering piece to wear with just about everything.

Finally, the Merona Rugby Print Stripe Scarf ($14.99) is made of gauzy cotton and a great way to sport stripes any day of the week.

It’s Time for Springtime.

The sheer trend has been hot for a few seasons now and this spring is no different. Whether layering on a completely see-through item or opting for a demure peekaboo of skin with sheer paneling, it’s a look with subtle sex appeal that anyone can wear. Case in point: we found these chic sheer pieces at Target which are not only affordable (natch) but completely wearable.

This chiffon racerback hi/lo hem dress from Mossimo ($25) is slightly sheer and printed with another of this season’s top trends: watercolor florals. Also available in an abstract print, this dress easily goes from a casual day at the beach to Sunday brunch with friends.

For a more sophisticated take on the sheer trend, try this Mossimo Ponte Dress with Sheer Front ($30) that comes in three colors. The illusion paneling appears at the chest, shoulders and upper back for a look that goes from the office (with a jacket or cardigan layered over it) to dinner.

Fancy T-shirts are one of our favorite ways to update a casual look. This Mossimo Tee with Sheer Front ($24.99) comes in three colors and features a chic colorblock effect combined with sheer panel inserts.

Two takes on the sleeveless blouse are perfect for the office worn with a skirt or pants. The floral Prabal Gurung for Target blouse ($26.99) features a stunning digital print and subtle sheer panels at the shoulders. The Mossimo Peter Pan Collar blouse ($22.99) has a slightly sheer look and a loose, boxy fit. Wear it over a camisole or tank top in black for a sleek look.

It’s Time for Springtime.

There’s something about Easter that marks the unofficial start of spring dressing. It’s the perfect time to break out pretty florals and fresh spring colors. This season, we found a basket-full of beautiful pieces to wear now and through the season. Here are some of our favorites:


This Prabal Gurung For Target® Blazer in Floral Crush Print ($49.99) is the ultimate statement piece to add to your spring wardrobe. Whether pairing with a little black dress or a pair of skinny cropped pants, it adds instant color and style to your look. Also from the same collection, these Ankle-Strap Pumps ($39.99) look fresh in bright yellow but also come in black and red.

Another floral piece that makes a lovely addition to your wardrobe is this breezy Xhilaration® Juniors Half Zip Peplum Cap Sleeve Top ($17.99). We love it on its own or layered under a jacket or cardigan. This dotty Xhilaration® Juniors Keyhole Dress ($24.99) is ideal for dressing up or down, depending on the occasion, and also comes in a gorgeous floral print.

Though not quite an Easter bonnet, this Merona® Shimmer Floppy Hat ($14.99) is perfect for the season or as a beach hat come summer. These aqua Double Drop Earrings ($14.99) are as pretty as an Easter egg, while the Merona® Turnkey Crossbody Handbag ($26.99) lends the perfect pop of bright color in eye-catching fuchsia.

It’s Time for Springtime.

Each season we’re faced with a new set of spring trends, and shoes are no exception. This spring, many of the shoe trends we’ve seen over the past few years are still hot, including wedges and gladiator heels. Two newer trends to hit the scene include printed styles and pointy toes. If you’re ready to refresh your shoe wardrobe, the great news is, you don’t have to spend a bundle! We found all of this season’s top shoe trends for incredibly affordable prices at Target. Here are just a few of our favorites:


1. Low Wedges

Wedges have been around for many seasons now, but the big news for 2013 is the lower wedge heel. Striking a more sophisticated silhouette than the usual sky-high platform wedge, it’s perfect for the office and a bit more manageable when doing a lot of walking. This Merona Edda Zip Back pair comes in several colors and costs just $22.99. Gorgeous!

2. Prints

Prints are popping up on everything from pumps to flats to sandals this season. This Prabal Gurung for Target pair ($39.99) marries this season’s must-have pointy-toe pump with a chic digital print to carry off two trends in one.

3. Gladiator Heels

Gladiator, or cage, heels are another big trend for spring. This pair from Mossimo ($29.99) is especially chic and looks great with everything from dresses to this season’s must-have Bermuda short.

4. Pointed Flats

While ballet flats will always be in style, the new pointy-toe flat is taking over for spring. Chic and sleek, it is perfect for the office worn with slim cropped pants or pretty dresses. We’re loving this pair from Prabal Gurung for Target ($29.99) in bright yellow but it’s also available in black and a colorful print.
