It has been so long since I took a stroll down the clothing aisles at Target! So, I was pumped to see that pretty much everything was new! I honestly could have spent a few hours trying on clothes in store! But I really tried to pare it down to the items that felt most like my style. I found some great tops, jackets, and even a few dresses for our August Target try on sesh!
Target Try On August
As far as sizing goes, I’m 5’7 1/2″ with a short torso and very long legs! I typically wear a 28/29 in jeans or a size 8. My bra size is a 36C, and I typically wear a size medium (or 8) top.
If you ever have any question about what size I’m wearing, check the links below each image! I list my size and any recommendations I have for sizing up or down for quick reference. For full details, I’ll be chatting all about quality, style, and fit in the paragraphs above each photo. Let’s go!
I love almost anything in pale to blush pink, so the color of this cami is what initially caught my eye. But when I got a little bit closer, I noticed that it has a subtle leopard print! Double win! It has a bit of a dressier feel that could be worn to the office but also looks great paired with denim! There are plenty of color options too. I really love the orange-y red option, but it also comes in black, cream, and a more bold brown print. I’m wearing a medium. Fit is TTS.
I’ve been seeing sweater tanks everywhere right now. They are HOT! But I get why. They are a great transitional piece that can be worn now and well into fall. I really love the shade of brown of this one. It almost has some shades of rust! But it does also come in cream. Fit runs a little big. I’m in a small here. Stay TTS if you’d like a slightly oversized fit or size down for a closer-to-the-body fit.
One of my faaaavs! This one came home with me! I love the flutter sleeves, square neckline, and button-front. It also comes in navy but of course I’m partial to this cream color! Fit is very oversized. I sized down to a small and it’s still plenty relaxed in fit!
When I saw this camo jacket I knew I had to try it! The camo jacket from Nordstrom I shared was so popular, but at under $40, it’s less than half the price! The style is so similar with both upper and lower pockets. It also has a drawstring waist just like the Nordstrom version. The main difference is that the Target one has a hood. It’s not removable, but since I wear jackets like this more casually, it doesn’t bother me much. Also this one has more of a true muted olive color, which I actually prefer over the brighter greens in the Nordstrom version. I’m in a size small. I’d suggest sizing down unless you want to layer with heavier sweaters.
I’ve been on the hunt for a casual dress like this in olive. Buuuut, when I tried it on, it was a bit of a miss for me. I sized up to a large, knowing this was a clingy fabric. But it still hung and clung to every underwear line, which I did not like. It also has a bit of a racerback cut, which means my bra straps also showed. To make this work, I’d need to wear some type of shaper to avoid all the lines!
Now this dress is a win! The fabric reminds me so much of the Texture & Thread line at Madewell. It is a straight up Madewell dupe. It’s a true wrap dress. The inner layer has a button closure without any stretch. The top layer has a little more give and is adjustable with a tie. The length is good and I love the bottom ruffle. Fit is TTS, but just remember there is no give in the waistline.
I loooove me a good shirtdress! These are a light denim-like material and a very comfortable! It also comes in a gray, which looks more like a washed black! Since I couldn’t tell the fit from the hanger, I grabbed both a small (left) and a medium (right). Overall, I liked the fit of the small better. It was so wrinkly and the pockets would not lay flat, but after trying on the medium, I’d suggest sizing down.
Of course I love this dress too! It’s the dress version of the button-front white top I love, so it’s a no-brainer. It has the same flutter sleeve, square neckline, and button-front. The front is flat and the back is elastic. With my shorter waist, it bunched up a little bit, but it would not be an issue for most people! Size down one. I’m in a small.
This is another item I grabbed after trying on the Nordstrom slip dress. I love the subtle leopard print! It has adjustable straps and a side slit on one side. There were verrrry limited sizes available in store. I’m sure it’s going to be a popular item, especially since it’s only $22! I tried on a large, but I would have preferred a medium. It’s a relaxed fit that’s perfect for layering with tanks, tees, or even turtlenecks for winter. You could also layer a moto jacket on top.
Before I left I wanted to try these two together! This outfit is a go-to combination of mine for fall and I love it! The subtle print of the cami works perfectly with the camo!
