It’s “A New Day” at Target

A New Day    

 

Target or Targe’ as I like to call it has really been upping it’s fashion game.  It’s newest fashion line is called “A New Day.”  This is a collection of chic basics and statement pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched.  I think it is especially good for women who need to dress up for work.  Here are some of my favorite pieces:

A New Day skirt

Skirt ($25) – you can wear this with black tights when it gets cooler

 

a new day tee shirt

T-shirt ($10) – this is a great staple to have in your fall wardrobe.  It looks great with the skirt above and the below pants.

 

a new day track pants

Pants ($25) – these pants can be dressed up or down depending upon what top and shoes you pair them with

 

a new day shirt

Top ($20) – this top looks great with the above pants, a red heel, and the shirt buttoned up with this bow choker

 

Sugar Fix choker

Choker ($15)

 

A New Day pants

Pants ($28) – these are great pants to have in your closet.  They look great with everything depending on the occasion.

 

A New Day blazer

Blazer ($35) – as I mentioned in a previous post, “Prince of Wales Plaid” is a huge trend for fall

 

a new day camisole

Cami ($18) – this looks great under the blazer and could also be worn under a cardigan

 

A New Day dress

Dress ($28) – this dress is so cute and like everything in the “A New Day” collection can be dressed up or down and worn in different ways.  I would wear this with sneakers, booties or tall boots.  I would also wear this with skinny jeans.

I really like the “A New Day” collection at Target.  I appreciate how everything can be mixed and matched.  It’s a great way to have an on-trend wardrobe at an affordable price.  It really is a new day at Target.  XOXO Michelle

 

How To Wear The 2017 Fall Trends Without Them Wearing You

2017 Fall Trends    

Every season new trends emerge.  I really love some of the 2017 fall trends and I think they can be easily integrated into your wardrobe.  You want to pick pieces that are on trend but also are true to your style.  You want to wear the new fall trends without them wearing you.

Red/Burgundy

This is the biggest 2017 fall trend.  They showed head to toe red outfits on the runway.  I think it’s more wearable, less trendy, and more unexpected to wear a red shoe instead.  Wearing a red shoe (especially boots) will give your outfit a pop of color and make you on-trend.

red booties

Journey Bootie – DSW ($50) – these boots are a beautiful bright shade of red and at a great price.

 

Velvet

Velvet was shown on all the runways and in all of the magazines for the fall.  Once again I recommend wearing the trend in small unexpected ways like a velvet cami under a long cardigan.  A velvet scarf is a great third piece option.

velvet cross body bag

Glamorous Velvet Cross Body Bag – ASOS ($42) – a velvet bag is also a great way to wear the trend.  This one comes in the color of the season and looks more expensive than what it is.  It is a perfect going out bag.

 

Shearling

Shearling is a huge trend for fall.  I love this shearling coat and the great price.

Vintage Inspired Faux Fur

A faux fur coat is so fun to wear for a night out.  A vintage inspired style is the one to try this fall.

Plaid

Plaid is always big for the fall.  This season they are showing what’s called “Prince of Wales Plaid.”  I think it’s a really fresh look for the new season.

plaid blazer

Oversized Plaid Blazer – Express ($168) – this is a great piece for your fall wardrobe because it can be dressed up for work or worn with a t-shirt and jeans.

 

Sheer

Sheer tops are all over the stores this fall.  You’ll see tops that are completely sheer or that have sheer arms.  The completely sheer ones can be worn with a cami, bandeau, or pretty bralette underneath.

sheer blouse

Shein ($19)

 

2017 Fall Trends

Nordstrom ($75)

Bell sleeves, blush pink, off shoulder / cold shoulder tops, leather, slogan tees, athleisure, and white boots continue to be in style for the fall.  Wearing your t-shirt or sweater off the shoulder is an easy way of updating your existing clothes and look.  Never wear something just because it’s trendy.  Pick and choose the trends that you like and that compliment your style.  XOXO Michelle
