6 Fall Fashion Staples From Target

Target is my go-to for just about everything. Rough day at work? Target. Organizational crisis? Target. Thursday? Target. Fall wardrobe in need of new staple items? Target, all the way. It’s that time of the year (pre-Black Friday, post-bikini chaos) when the women’s clothing section is brimming with sweaters, dresses, and plaid, well, everything. Meanwhile, the shoe section is towering with knee-high boots and the accessories area is scattered colorfully with scarves and statement jewelry pieces. My mission in the early days of fall is to refresh my wardrobe by stocking up on lots of staple items that I can dress up or down with things I already own. That said, I’ve picked some of Target’s best fashion staple pieces available this fall. I’ll leaf you to it….



Layering for cooler weather is key, whether it’s to stay cozy during your morning commute or staying warm in a chilly office. These sweaters are all easy to layer (think: plaid flannel, graphic tanks, blouses) and accessorize.

Pullover Tunic, $27.99



No matter the season, Target delivers when it comes to their shoe selections. But there’s something seriously satisfying about walking into Target as fall is approaching and seeing their selection of boots. From chunky and wedge heels to low-heeled riding boots, you’re guaranteed to find boot(ie)s to match outfits for work, play, and everything in between.

Ah, the glorious feeling of rocking a cute outfit, sans pants. Throw on a pair of sweater tights, add some booties and a cute jacket (think: leather moto or colorful anorak), and you’re on your way to looking crisp in your #OOTD.

Long-sleeve Swing Dress, $19.99

Who would turn down the opportunity to wear what is essentially a really fashionable blanket? Ponchos are an easy grab-and-go item that can make an outfit look both effortless and chic, all while leaving you feeling perfectly cozy.

The best part about all of the above staple items is that they’re so easy to dress up with accessories. For a day of apple or pumpkin picking, dress up your simple sweater with a plaid infinity scarf (Target has tons of cute plaid options this year). For a little sparkle in the evening, throw on a jewel-toned stone statement necklace.

Plaid Infinity Scarf, $17.99
Stone Statement Necklace, $19.99
Fedora, $16.99



Keeping it neutral when it comes to bags is a great way to tie your entire outfit together. Target’s totes, handbags, and clutches all come in a variety of colors (and for cheap, too) that can easily be paired up with an outfit for any occasion.

Oversized Tote, $34.99
Crossbody Handbag, $39.99
Envelope Clutch, $18.99

  • Kim, I feel like we’re cut from the same (Target) cloth. I personally love the chic backpacks Target has had the last several months. I’m about to switch out my white one for a black one, going into fall. Thanks!
