Target's New Summer Collection Is Unbelievably Good — & Everything Is Under $45


Big-box stores have been seriously stepping up their game as of late when it comes to their sartorial offerings, adding a slew of diverse brands to their repertoires that blend affordability and style. Case in point: Target's summer 2019 collection, which boasts 1,500 pieces from an array of trend-conscious brands and has absolutely everything you'll need to outfit your warm weather wardrobe. The best part? Every single item retails for under $45, meaning you won't feel a shred of guilt when you inevitably go on an uncontrollable shopping spree upon seeing the offerings. I think they hit the bullseye with this collection, don't you agree?

In my opinion, the best part about the new launch is its swimsuit offerings. There are tons of silhouettes to choose from (bikinis, one-pieces, monokinis, strapless, and high-waisted included) and enough prints to keep your style fresh all summer long, and at under $40 a pop they're some of the cheapest swimsuits out there. The selection of dresses is also worth mentioning but you really can't go wrong with anything in the drop. Peruse some of the best pieces below to get an idea of just how ace it is and then treat yourself to your favorite selections.
