Outfit Inspiration

If you like this cute, inexpensive, and versatile dress, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1: Sweet & Stylish

Target red dress, knit cardigan, oxfords
Product Info: Dress- Target, Cardigan- H&M, Earrings- Piperlime, Bag-, Shoes-, Rings- Shopbop

Create an adorable, yet comfy everyday look by pairing our Fab Find with a cozy knit sweater and some taupe, lace-up oxfords. A mint green chain strap purse creates contrast with the red dress, while sphere-shaped stud earrings echo the color of the bag. Finish this look by accessorizing with a few delicate stacked rings.

Outfit #2: Edgy Glam

Target red dress, denim biker jacket, suede boots, heart shaped bag
Product Info: Dress- Target, Bag- ASOS, Jacket- H&M, Boots-, Earrings- Baublebar

Toughen up this feminine frock by layering on a black acid wash biker jacket and a pair of suede ankle booties. A heart-shaped, quilted handbag gives the outfit a cute, yet fashion-forward vibe. Top the look off with some statement-making gold earrings.

Outfit #3: Tone on Tone

Target red dress, crimson pumps, burgundy clutch
Product Info: Dress- Target, Bag- Karen Millen, Necklace- Stella & Dot, Shoes- Forever 21

Monochromatic outfits are super-trendy at the moment and the above ensemble is a great way to wear head-to-toe red. The key to rocking this look is to vary the shades – this creates contrast and interest. Offset the crimson-colored dress with a pair of bright red patent pumps and a structured, burgundy clutch. Accessorize with a simple arrow-shaped necklace to complete this look.

    A pretty cut and fabric, but based on the model, soooooo short! How about girls with longer legs, or those who don’t like showing them off? Or girls who live where February is COLD?

    @cesia- The dress is also available in stores! If you click the link to the dress, Target’s site has a feature where you can check and see if the item is in stock at your local store.

    @cesia I bought mine at my local Target. I’m 5ft. tall, and the dress falls an inch or so above my knees. I’m also on the busty side, and the large fit perfectly!

    When I tried this on in Target, this dress came off as being very cheaply made. It had very thin material and seemed like it would fall apart easily. I do like the way it looks in the pictures, but it just wasn’t the right dress for me!
