The 12 Items We’re Dying to Buy From the Phillip Lim for Target Collection

August 13, 2013 at 1:47 pm , by

We LHJ.com editors can’t stop talking about the new 3.1 Phillip Lim collection for Target. Seriously. We. Are. Obsessed. From shoes to handbags to dresses, every single piece is totally gorgeous—and won’t break the bank. Unlike some previous designer collections for Target, this Phillip Lim set is the perfect mix of office-appropriate and street-style cool. We can’t wait to get our hands on the twelve items below, in stores and online September 15. Consider our calendars marked.

The September issues are out, and that means fall fashion is here! We’re ready to trade in our sundresses for skinny jeans and boots. Check out the slideshow below to see our picks for the best new clothes, shoes, and accessories.

Wear It Now Wednesday: Prep School

Navy is one of the colors for fall. Get in on the trend now with this swingy navy and wine-colored skirt. Did we mention it’s only $40? Pair it with a lightweight silk blouse and flat sandals for a fashionable look that’s totally back-to-school cool. Accessorize with a FEED tote (every purchase provides 28 meals!) and a straw fedora, which adds a tomboy touch to the otherwise feminine ensemble. Once fall comes around, switch your blouse for a striped pullover. The key to mixing and matching prints is to make sure the items share a color palette, like they do here. Finish your preppy look with retro-chic oxford shoes, a bold red satchel, and a classic tortoise-shell watch. And that, my friend, is how you get an A+ in style.

 Summer: skirt, Mango, blouse, French Connection, hat, Forever 21, sandals, Target

Fall: skirt, Mango, shirt, J. Crew, bag, Topshop, watch, Michael Kors, shoes, DSW

Wear It Now Wednesday: Good Jeans

We noticed quite a few denim dresses while shopping the sales this past weekend. The statement piece is back in full force, and it could not be any easier to incorporate it into your wardrobe. We’re loving this sophisticated dark denim version with its embellished collar and fun pockets. Add a floppy hat, heart-shaped shades, and bright patterned wedges for a ladylike summer look, perfect for Saturdays in the city. The best part about this dress? It transitions into fall no problem. Throw on a (faux) leather jacket like this one to toughen up your style (and keep you warm when the weather starts to change). Invest in a neutral satchel – yes, this snakeskin print one still counts! – to carry around all your belongings. Then slip into some comfy suede booties, and you’re good to go.

Summer look: dress, Dorothy Perkins (or try this Target dress for $28), floppy hat, ASOS, sunglasses, Nordstrom, bracelet, Forever 21

Fall look: dress, Dorothy Perkins,  jacket, Oasis, bag, Rachel Rachel Roy, bracelet, C. Wonder, booties, Jessica Simpson

Beat the Heat: 7 Summer Dresses Under $100

June 20, 2012 at 3:29 pm , by

With the temperature into the high 90s this week, there is only one thing that I want to reach for in my closet every single day: a dress. So, I figured we’d all benefit from a little online shopping trip. All under $100. All from the comfort of your air-conditioned office!

1. Because we love a good limited-edition collection at Target. The Webster at Target leaf print dress $42.99

2. Because no one makes under $100 look so luxe. Zara v-back dress $89.90

3. Because mint is the color of the summer. Asos river island high waisted dress $41.43

4. Because the midi length is so new and so flattering. Forever 21 tribal midi dress $24.80

5. Because a little arm coverage is okay with us. Piperlime MM Couture kimono dress $68

6. Because I can’t go shopping without stopping at J Crew. Dontcha love how they styled it with the belt and hat? J Crew shoreline stripe dress in kelly green $69.50

6. Because where else can you get something so cute for less than a $20 spot? Old Navy drawstring v-neck jersey dress $15.94

7. And because I clearly have an addiction to stripes. Gap asymmetrical striped dress $64.95
