Bounce into spring with these feminine Target pieces. On-trend and affordable, these items will earn you compliments all season long.
A store so good at getting you to buy five million things you didn’t plan to, it has been coined the “Target Effect.”
While you do need to be a little more strong-willed to stay on your shopping list, my last trip to Target had one purpose: to check out their spring apparel selection.
Often, Target feels like one of my most frequent, tangible ties to popular style on the mainland. There are so many cute items at affordable prices, it’s a bit nostalgic to imagine walking the aisles with my mom on a Saturday with a bag of popcorn.
Over the years I noticed the quality and variety of their clothing has really improved, and it’s always fun for me to see their spin on today’s trends. We don’t have a ton of places to shop for trendier items on the island (unlike O’ahu) so Target is a pretty easy one stop shop to check out a variety of styles.
On my latest trip to Target I was so impressed with their selection. They had so many great pieces, and it got me excited for summer. I picked up what spoke to me, and by the end my shopping cart looked like the prettiest pastel rainbow.
Below you can see my thoughts on the items I selected, and use this post as inspiration on your next Target run!
Shop Your Favorite Trends
Often when shopping, we’re looking for items that will live for years as mainstays in our closets. Every now and then, it’s nice to pick up a few trendy pieces to try out in our everyday wardrobe. If your closet feels tired, more on-trend pieces like crop tops, light cardigans, and chic bodysuits can add more variety without a huge cost.
Try Out Seasonal Colors
While many influencers make it look effortless, trying out new seasonal colors can be a challenge. It’s helpful to know what season your skin tone is (I’m an autumn) and work from there. However, you don’t have to let this limit you. If there’s anything we’ve learned from this “new normal” it’s that life is simply too short not to indulge the little things that bring us joy. Sometimes, it’s a lovely shade of light purple, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Plan for Your Next Vacation
Whether you’re looking at a road trip, beach trip, or full-on tropical Hawaiian vacation, Target has so many fun pieces to help you plan and get excited. From basics like tees and denim, to swimsuits, cover-ups, and sun hats, you can expect to find a decent selection. If there’s one thing I can always expect from their selections it’s that they will definitely have a great assortment of bright, fun, and cute items.
Feminine and Vibrant Spring Items – Tops
01 | pink crop top: The drawstring detail and ribbed material of this top make it very comfortable and flattering. The crop cut is longer than other Wild Fable pieces, so this is a great pick if you love the cropped style but still want to dress more modestly.
02 | blue striped button down: This is a perfect summer top. You can leave it open to wear over a bathing suit. You can also tie it just above your favorite pair of shorts. The blue stripes just make me think of a calm day on the ocean.
03 | lavender tank: This was the first top I put on from this list, and I didn’t want to take it off! The ribbed material makes this top incredibly comfortable, and the racerback style is flattering and still modest for summer.
04 | white body suit: I picked this one up because it reminded me of a few Aritzia pieces, and at only $10 it’s a steal! The snaps on this top means you no longer have to get entirely naked to go to the bathroom, which is a total win.
05 | balloon sleeve top: This top immediately reminded me of an Everlane top I’ve swooned over in the past. Made of linen with a button down front, it feels a little more casual and perfect for a summer barbecue. For me, the fit was a little loose. I plan to stitch two pieces of thin fabric at the sides to make a tie in the back for more of a flattering, fitted look.
Feminine and Vibrant Spring Items – Dresses
01 | smocked waist maxi dress: This dress is so lovely in person. The fabric is the perfect light cotton for summer evenings, and it has pockets. This dress would be a great pick for Easter Sunday.
02 | floral shift dress: This dress is the perfect easy summer go-to. You can wear it alone, layer it over a t-shirt, or use it as an easy swim cover up.
Feminine and Vibrant Spring Items – Light Layers
01 | linen blazer: This blazer is perfect for chilly evenings and uncertain weather. The linen makes it a perfect light layer for spring and summer, and the oversized fit makes it feel modern.
02 | cropped cardigan: This soft pink cardigan is great for tying around your shoulders for a preppy look. Its woven knit is pretty thin, so you can easily wear it all spring and summer without getting too hot.
Feminine and Vibrant Spring Items – Matching Sets
01 | whole set: This set is everything you want out of a jogger set and more. The color reminds me of the Pacific which I love. The pants are high waisted and the sweatshirt is slightly cropped, so this set is more flattering than most.
Feminine and Vibrant Spring Items – Skirts
01 | daisy skirt: This daisy mini skirt is everything you want in a skirt and more. The fabric is firm with a slight stretch so it’s comfortable but won’t blow up in the wind. The slit is super cute and flattering.
02 | pleated lavender skirt: This skirt is so fun and feminine. I must admit, I am weak for this lavender hue but I think it would be perfect for Easter Sunday or a nice brunch with friends.
Feminine and Vibrant Spring Items – Tops
01 | heeled sandals: These heeled sandals are cute, comfortable, and go with just about anything. They go with jeans just as well as a flowy skirt, and you can definitely wear them for years to come (or until the wear out, whichever comes first!)
02 | flat sandals: These flat sandals are great for casual spring days or walking around your favorite city.
