Target Fall Designer Collection 2021: Best looks to buy

Everyone looks forward to a Target run, but when the retailer announces a designer collection, everyone literally runs to get their hands on the newest wardrobe must-haves. It’s not every day that you get to step into high-end fashion for less than $100, but with each seasonal drop, the retailer proves it’s possible — and doesn’t disappoint.

One Shop TODAY contributor had the chance to try a few items from the spring Designer Dress Collection, which included pieces from Christopher John Rogers, RIXO, and ALEXIS, before they flew off of the shelves. That’s why we’ve had our calendars marked for Sept. 25 the moment we found out the Target Fall Designer Collection was in the works.

This limited-time collaboration includes over 180 wardrobe essentials from designers Rachel Comey, Victor Glemaud, Sandy Liang and Nili Lotan — and is officially available to shop right now.

Each designer has curated a collection of modern and trendy apparel that is perfect for fall, but all of the pieces can be worn long after the season ends. The selection goes beyond shirts and dresses — you’ll find everything from rain jackets and headbands to leather blouses and Sherpa jackets in this season’s drop.

What might possibly be the best part? Target says that most items are under $50 this time around, so you can stock your closet with designer goodies without breaking the bank. This collaboration is also keeping in line with Target’s inclusive sizing, as you’ll be able to shop every single piece in sizes XXS-4X.

Below, we rounded up some of the styles we got to try, along with other stunning essentials that are worth checking out. From a chic sweater vest to the trendy shacket, read on for the standouts you should shop from Target’s Fall Designer Collection — before they’re gone!

Victor Glemaud x Target Women’s V-Neck Sweater Vest

Sweater vests are one of the season’s hottest trends, and they’ve gotten a modern upgrade with Glemaud’s design. This style can be worn alone or paired with a turtleneck sweater as the days get cooler.

Victor Glemaud x Target Polka Dot Cardigan

Fall is all about layering, and this cardigan is perfect for the season. Pair it with a solid tee or dress to polish off your stylish look.

Victor Glemaud x Target Polka Dot Tank Top

Your everyday tank top gets a cozy, knit feel thanks to this piece in Glemaud’s collection. The rib-knit hemline hits right at the waist, so you can tuck it into high-waisted jeans or the matching skirt to pull off a breezy look.

Victor Glemaud x Target Polka Dot Midi Sweater Skirt

Stretchy bottoms are in right now, but you don’t have to wear sweatpants to keep comfortable. This pull-on skirt feels just like your favorite sweater and can be dressed up or down for whatever the day brings.

Victor Glemaud x Target Crewneck Pullover Sweater

Glemaud offers a fresh take on colorblock designs with this crewneck sweater. It’s made from a soft blend of cotton, nylon and wool that will keep you warm — and looking cool with its teal and black print.

Victor Glemaud x Target Animal Print Long Sleeve Dress

If animal prints are the new neutral, you’ll find yourself pairing this dress with nearly everything. Though the length is modest enough to wear alone, you can easily toss it over leggings or jeans if you prefer.

Interested in a new take on the leather jacket? Try this dreamy croc-embossed piece. Aside from the gorgeous texture, this jacket also features tortoise button detailing and side welt pockets.

Marble print is making a statement with this knit dress. The fitted bodice and flared skirt make for a flattering silhouette that you’ll want to rock on the daily.

Rachel Comey x Target Checkered Oversized Shirt Jacket

The shacket trend has also found its way into Target’s Fall Designer Collection. A shirt-jacket hybrid, it makes for the perfect layering piece for fall.

Rachel Comey x Target V-Neck Pullover Sweater

It’s all in the details with this knit sweater, and we’re loving the basket stitch pattern that gives it a vintage vibe. This top is also a sustainable swap for your closet — it’s made with 25{df277fece0e332513078d4db57f50d7f29a9f255adc120b3235ad73f23ad2e97} recycled polyester.

These pants boast the look of office-appropriate trousers but feature an elastic waist that makes them comfortable enough to wear all day long. They’re not only chic, but also functional, thanks to the side pockets.

Rachel Comey x Target High-Rise Faux Leather Utility Pants

Leather pants don’t just come in black styles anymore. You can find them in neutral shades, but Comey is taking it up a notch with these stylish navy utility pants.

Sandy Liang x Target Crewneck Eyelet Pointelle Pullover Sweater

Lightweight and airy, this sweater is a breathable layer for fall, but we can also see it fitting right into our spring 2022 wardrobe. The lettuce trim on the sleeves and hem also adds a subtle detail that makes this piece stand out from others in your wardrobe.

Sandy Liang x Target Gingham Pocket Sherpa Jacket

Teddy coats have been a fall staple for several years now, which is why we’re glad to see this updated take on the trend. It’s made with plush Sherpa that you’ll never want to take off and features a functional gingham pocket that breaks up the fabric, a nod to Liang’s signature style.

Sandy Liang x Target Mid-Rise Quilted Jogger Pants

If you want to step out in designer fashion but keep sweatpants in your fall rotation, you’ll want to snag Liang’s quilted joggers. These mid-rise bottoms feature a full elastic waistband and metallic details that add an extra flair to this all-black ensemble.

Sandy Liang x Target Mid-Rise Straight Leg Pocket Pants

If you prefer a mid-rise fit but want to take elastic-waist bottoms out of the equation this season, these khakis are worth considering. They’re made from 100{df277fece0e332513078d4db57f50d7f29a9f255adc120b3235ad73f23ad2e97} cotton, so they’re breathable enough to wear on those unusually hot fall days.

Sandy Liang x Target Short Sleeve Smocked T-Shirt

You can’t go wrong with a plain white tee! This shirt ups the ante on your everyday basic, thanks to smock detailing and a slightly-flared hem.

Sandy Liang x Target Floral Print Long Sleeve Dress

We’re falling for florals this fall — and for sleeves that bring the drama. This flattering dress doesn’t disappoint, thanks to its ruffle insets and crewneck design.

Sandy Liang x Target Gingham 3/4 Sleeve Shirtdress

Day-to-night wear just got a little trendier with this cute mini gingham number. Class it up with your favorite heels and gold accessories, or create your own stylish look with a pair of black booties and statement jewelry. Either way, the cotton material will keep you comfortable, while the button-front and ruffle detailing will have you fending off passersby asking where you got that dress.

Nili Lotan x Target

Nili Lotan x Target Long Sleeve Tie-Front Jumpsuit

We’re swooning over this utilitarian jumpsuit. You can dress it up with heels for a night out, pair it with sneakers if you’ll be on your feet all day or neutral booties to polish off your casual-chic look.

Nili Lotan x Target Paisley Print Long Sleeve Belted Shirtdress

Fashion trends dating back to the ’70s are enjoying a renaissance right now, including fun designs like the paisley print. This midi dress features a palette that is autumn-ready and can easily be dressed up or down.

Nili Lotan x Target Turtleneck Back Button Sweater

Don’t be fooled by the front of this sweater — the button detailing on the back is a unique touch that is not to be overlooked. Since the design is simple, you can pair it with high-waisted pants or a skirt for seamless styling.

Nili Lotan x Target Pinstripe Classic Blazer

Tailored pieces are in right now, and Lotan’s pinstripe looks are capitalizing on the moment. This blazer is a timeless staple that can be worn with the matching pants or with jeans you already own.

Nili Lotan x Target Pinstripe High-Rise Wide Leg Trousers

These wide-leg pants are giving us some serious ’70s vibes. We’ve spotted celebrities in wide-leg pants since the start of the summer, and it’s one trend we think will be around for quite some time.

Nili Lotan x Target Camo Print High-Rise Skinny Jeans

Another print that has been declared a neutral? Camo print. These slim-fit jeans will ensure a sleek look, whether you pair them with a T-shirt or chunky sweater.
