The latest line to come out of Target proves you don't have to cough up an arm and a leg to look like a million bucks. Michelle Williams, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kate Mara were some of the stars to flaunt looks from the new Kate Young for Target line, where flirty dresses and playful yet professional work attire seemed to be the underlying theme of the affordable collection. Lately, fashionistas in cities all over the world are searching not for the most expensive necklace, clutch or earrings, but the most unique treasure they can find that will accentuate their ensemble.
Kate Young is only one of the latest designers to create a stylish line for Target. Prabal Gurung, the high-end designer who wowed stylists, models and other prominent figures in at New York Fashion Week, also created an affordable line of clothes in bold, vibrant patterns perfect for spring. The skirts, dresses, tops and blazers were not only extremely stylish and in line with Gurung's aesthetic, but they proved that consumers are paying attention to fashion and appreciate a good deal. The entire line almost completely sold out in just one day.
Instead of focusing on prices and flaunting brands in people's faces, look for a style, cut or piece that you love and wear it with confidence. Half of the battle of pulling off a new trend is feeling comfortable in it yourself, and once you do, you'll naturally convince others of how good you look, too. When you look at stars like Michelle Williams, their fearlessness shines through on the red carpet or the streets of New York.
"She has found herself," Kara Yoshimoto Bua, Williams' makeup artist, told InStyle. "Michelle is the perfect example of the very modern young lady."
To find the right jewelry to enhance your style, you have to know first what your signature look may be. If you love to mix up patterns and trends, go for bold pieces, like a fierce ring or statement necklace. The Round White Crystal Marquise-Shape Green Crystal 14k Yellow Gold-Plated Enamel Accent Leopard Hinged Bangle Bracelet is sure to be a conversation piece when you flaunt it at a cocktail party. If you're a classic Audrey Hepburn or Marnie on the HBO series "Girls," then pearls and understated jewels like the Round White Cultured Freshwater Pearl Aurora Borealis Crystal Endless Necklace might be perfect for you. The beauty of killer style is it doesn't have to come at a painful price.
