It’s hard to imagine a world without Target, or Tarjay as us old-timers like to say. Sure, we remember the days when no store could mingle fashion and toilet bowl cleaner quite so well. But life’s better when we can head to one store for some trash bags, a bottle of wine, a new lip color and a darling pair of sunglasses.
And now that spring has sprung, it’s time for two things: cleaning the house and updating the accessory collection. You’re on your own for the spring cleaning — but read on for eight Target spring accessories you’re sure to love.
Target Spring Accessories We Love
1. Bold satchel
Did someone say “must have”? Because that’s exactly what this handbag is. Available in a variety of shades, including a peppy pink and a vibrant pattern, this smart bag captures the essence of practicality with its no-fuss, structured silhouette. It’s perfect whether you’re carrying it to the office or on a weekend errand run.
2. The long necklace
Simple, yet completely chic, this eye-catching necklace is the perfect piece to add a little splash of sophistication to any look. You can easily wear it at work or play, thanks to its clean design and brilliant sheen.
3. Fun kimono
Kimonos are everywhere right now — and with good reason. The effortless, throw-it-on-and-go piece can easily complete any outfit in your closet. Wear this one with white jeans and a simple top for a casually pulled together look. Or toss it on over a dress for a warming layer when it’s breezy outside.
4. Cateye sunnies
What’s not to love about a pair of sunnies that channels a little throwback style, yet feels perfectly grounded and contemporary at the same time? These give you a feeling of being in a different era, yet are easy to work into any of your looks — they’re so chic with a sleek black sheath and a pair of animal-print slides.
5. A girly headband
A glance at Instagram is enough to determine that everyone is wild about cute hair accessories right now. And why not, when pieces like this sparkling headband from SUGARFIX by BaubleBar are around to remind us of all the easy ways to keep our manes in check? This is like a grown-up version of the sweet styles you wore as a kid.
6. Floppy hat
Do you really need a hat? The odds are that, yes, you pretty much do when it’s bordering on 100 degrees outside, the sun is blazing, and you left your sunglasses at home. A hat like this shields your complexion and eyes from potentially damaging ultraviolet rays and elevates your sunny-style quotient considerably.
7. The belt bag
Are you on a belt bag kick like so many right now? It’s definitely a thing — and no longer are they reminiscent of the fanny packs of the 1980s. This bag is definitely the contemporary answer, what with its bold lion head emblem and sprinkling of studs.
8. Statement earrings
You’re allowed supposed to have fun with your wardrobe choices. So that means breaking out the unexpected colors and silhouettes every now and then, like these playful lilac hoops. As far as pastel accessories go, they’re destined to leave their stamp on any of your warm-weather ensembles.
