    1. Ultra high-rise leggings you'll not only wear for workouts, but for everyday errands and comfort. My current go-to outfit consists of a graphic tee and black high-rise leggings like these ones from Target!

    The leggings in black

    Promising review: "Having an extremely athletic body, I used to exclusively buy 'designer' leggings to accommodate my tricky figure. However, I gave these a try and they surpass the designer leggings in all categories. Fit great, are comfortable, and have withstood washing/running." —rosie

    Price: $40 (available in sizes XS–2X and two colors)

    2. A New Day polka dot pleated skirt, because it will undoubtedly be a skirt staple for LITERALLY any month out of the year. BRB, will be twirling forevs in this skirt.

    The white and black polka dot pleated maxi skirt

    Promising review: "Love this skirt! I got so many compliments on it. Wore it with a white blouse to church and tan heels. Perfect for summer." —Gladys835

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS–2X and three colors)

    3. A Universal Thread sleeveless dress that's the perfect cross between casual and comfortable. This dress is a great option for anyone who loves to wear sneakers with dresses.


    Promising review: "Great tank type dress. Crewneck allows for full coverage of armpit area to hide any bulges, which is the worst part about wearing tank top styles. I did size up since it's 100% cotton to account for shrinkage and not have to worry about putting it in the dryer. The fit was perfect." —tah

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–2X)

    4. High-rise straight leg jeans — a versatile wardrobe staple if you want to wear them full length as jeans, or roll them up to a capri length!


    Promising review: "I bought two pairs of these jeans because I love the fit and color. The straight leg is so comfortable and stylish. Great bargain." —judyd

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes 14W–30W )

    5. A ruffle A-line mini skirt so you have the perfect pairing for your neutral tanks and tees. This tiered skirt will hands-down be your new fave item in your closet.

    The brown patterned skirt

    Promising review: "I love this skirt so much! So cute on and amazing quality." —Sandypaige

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS–2X and two colors)

    6. A cozy graphic tee to amp up your loungewear game to the nines. The artist in me is absolutely loving the color palette of this comfy shirt — I mean...that light pastel yellow is to die for. *Swoons*.

    The T-shirt with the word "sunshine" on the front

    Promising review: "Love this tee! Lightweight and soft. I wear a small/medium and ordered this in large since it's junior's sizing and it fits just right." —Charlie

    Price: $12.99 (available in sizes XS–2X)

    7. A short sleeve ruffle hem dress in a goROARgeous leopard print in case your style is in some desperate need of pattern.


    Reviews suggest this dress runs big.

    Promising review: "This dress is definitely worth the price, especially if you get it on sale like I did. Trust me when I say you need to size down TWO sizes. I normally wear a medium and purchased this dress in an extra small and it's still plenty big." —Anonymous

    Price: $17.49 (available in sizes XS–2X and 10 colors)

    8. Black backless loafers if snagging a business casual shoe is on your mind. These easy slip-ons are something you can quickly put on before running out the door with virtually any outfit.


    Promising review: "Perfect fit and absolutely adorable! I would love to have these in about six more colors. Come on Target make more!" —Heather

    Price: $22.99 (available in sizes 5–12)

    9. A camo print jacket for chillier summer nights when you need something to keep you warm, but don't want to sacrifice your stylish outfit.

    Promising review: "Cute, boxy fit. Great style for the price! Looks like it could be a Anthropologie jacket." —abc123

    Price: $34.99 (available in sizes XS–2X)

    10. Faux leather ballet flats, because your summery dress needs a BFF (aka these adorbs shoes).

    The flats with cutout details

    Promising review: "Love how comfy it is. Isn’t too tight which is great. Fits perfect. Would’ve been great if style had other color options, as well." —SE

    Price: $12.74 (available in sizes 5–12 wide and two colors)

    11. A chunky belted cardigan in a soft cream color for styling over a cold-shoulder dress or tank top if you are the friend who's always cold.


    Promising review: "So glad I purchased this item in XS before it sold out again! Highly recommend. The quality is amazing and it's so soft. It is not scratchy at all on the skin. It is also lightweight, which makes a perfect stay at home cardigan. I'm 5-foot-3. Therefore, the tassel tie does sit lower, but I prefer it to fit around my waist, so I just cut off the belt loops. Now it fits perfectly! Would definitely repurchase if they came in spring pastel colors!" —jgirl2193

    Price: $36.99 (available in sizes XS–XL)

    12. A polka dot tank top that's sure to be a staple in your usual style lineup. It's a perfect transitional piece that can be more laid back when styled with jeans, or dressed up with dress pants or a skirt!

    14. A Who What Wear belted tiered dress to get your mind, body, and style into full-on summer mode. You'll be glowing ~always~ when wearing this bold dress.

    Model in the ruffled, short-sleeve pink dress

    Promising review: "It's beyond my expectations. I love this dress. Flowy and classy. Bright pink and true to size." —Targetlook

    Price: $36.99 (available in sizes XS–2X and three colors)

    15. A zip closure crossbody because let's be real, no one wants to lug around a big bag in the heat of summer. Free up your hands and give your shoulder a break from your overused tote, and opt for a cross-body option.

    The small straw crossbody

    Promising review: "This is such an amazing bag. Perfect size that fits my large phone (Samsung Note) with plenty of room for other things that I would normally carry only in a smaller bag. Well-made and looks more expensive! I bought the cognac crosshatch woven bag and it's so unique and pretty and I'm very happy with it!" —Shoewee67

    Price: $22.99 (available in six colors)

    16. A short-sleeve T-shirt dress so you can give your usual loungewear a break for once. Tie a denim jacket around the waist and boom — a solid brunch outfit.

    The T-shirt dress in light pink

    The ideal denim jacket to pair with this dress.

    Promising review: "Very comfortable. Since it's 100% cotton I sized up for a more relaxed/longer fit and so I wouldn't have to worry about putting it in the dryer. It worked out perfectly." —tah

    Price: $12 (available in sizes XS–2X and nine colors)

    17. A puff sleeve tee — an essential made from lightweight fabric that's an ideal option for pretty much any bottoms you own minus leggings (but tbh, it'd probably look good with leggings too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).


    Promising review: "I bought this in the rose color in my usual size medium. It is very flattering and true to size. The sleeves aren't too puffy!" —Mimi

    Price: $16.99 (available in sizes XS–2X and three colors)

    18. Slip-on sneakers if you never know which shoes to wear and want to make your choice a no-brainer. You can't go wrong with this microsuede option.

    Price: $21.24 (originally 24.99, available in sizes 5–12 and three colors)

    The sandals with two straps: one braided leather and one silver

    Promising review: "Super cute and stylish sandals. They are easy to slip on and off. They are flat without arch support, but haven't bothered me (however I haven't stood around in them all day yet). I would recommend!" —arittich

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and two colors)

    22. A two-tone slip dress in a colorblock pattern that'll bring the brightest pop of color to your summer wardrobe. Just look at that magenta *heart eyes*.


    Promising review: "I LOVE IT!!! The color combo is bold & vibrant. It fits true to size and the material is fine! I look forward to wearing it out!" —cocofash

    Price: $50 (available in sizes 0–22W)

    23. A pair of tie-front utility shorts with an adjustable waistband so finding your ideal fit is never a hassle. These come in a lightweight and breathable fabric — ta ta, hot and sweaty denim!

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes 2–18 and two colors)

    26. An Ava & Viv ribbed T-shirt if you're a fan of the tucked in tee look and want something more form-fitting. TBH you'll probs add to cart in every color because we all need a good array of basics when it comes to tees.

    Model in the olive green ribbed T-shirt

    Promising review: "Love it! Great layering piece and ran true to size for me." —Syd

    Price: $12 (available in sizes X–4X and four colors)

    27. A timeless pair of mid-rise skinny jeans with minimal distressing in case a jean upgrade is in your near future. Also — can we discuss the super cute frayed bottoms? YASSSSSS.

    Model in the skinny jeans

    Promising review: "I love these jeans! The comfort, elastic waist band ensure a fit with no gaps. They are longer than ankle length on me, and I stand at 5'5". I don't mind it though." —debkayham

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes 14W–30W and two colors)

    28. A double buckle belt that is an amazing high-end dupe option. This piece can be used to cinch your favorite jumpsuit or dress as a stylized accent, as well as a great go-to for denim that's a bit too big.

    The blouse

    Promising review: "Super soft, comfy fabric. Really great fit, even with larger hips that can make some button-down shirts look weird. I wish there were more colors/patterns!" —RW
