There’s a reason why fashion is (somewhat murkily) divvied between classic staples (a black blazer), and stylish trends (black Birkenstocks). And because the common woman cannot always afford the Stuart Weitzman shoe of the moment (practically half of Hollywood has hopped on The Nudist train), a very wise group of fashion-savvy business persons invented Target (AKA that place where you accidentally spend 200 dollars when all you needed was dry shampoo). Ever since Target’s designer collaborations have risen to cult-like fashion fame, the store’s overall style has greatly evolved from the bland henleys and burnout tees of yesteryear. Set your soles on these five trendy—though not costly—pairs that Target’s in-house brand Mossimo hit right on the (style) mark.
Mossimo Lainey Perforated Two-Piece Flats: Girly, quirky, and utterly original, these perforated daisy slip-ons are the perfect addition to your favorite floppy hat and pinafore. Or, for another eccentric look, overalls and a billowy blouse is an easy, laid-back equivalent to chic Saturday outings.
Mossimo Kacie Peep Toe Bootie: The office-appropriate stacked heel, contrasted with the fun peep toe, makes these booties the ideal transitional shoe. Wear with a silk shift dress, or dress down with cuffed jeans and a cargo jacket, for virtually endless outfit possibilities.
Mossimo Supply Co. Dedra Quilted Slip On: For a Hip-Hop chic alternative to your basic sneaker, these quilted slip-ons can give a street-cool vibe to even the most basic sweatpants. You can’t mess these up with a sweet graphic tee and bomber jacket.
Mossimo Hartley II Buckle Ankle Boot: For when the cold—and rainy—weather becomes too much for your baby toes to bear, these tough, buckled booties are just what you need for those frigid morning coffee runs, and long bar-hopping nights. And at $37.99, go ahead and treat yourself to the venti Chai latte.
Mossimo Supply Co. Ruthie Fringe Bootie: Take a lesson from Milan Fashion Week and try adding some suede and fringe to your wardrobe. These boots combine both classic styles into one on-trend fall shoe. Pair them with a brown leather jacket and casual blue jeans, or go the Kate Moss route and get creative with your outfits (she has been seen rocking her fringe boots in everything from shorts to leather pants).
