This New Target Collab Is the Perfect Way to Update Your Wardrobe For Fall
For years now, we’ve relied on Target collaborations to provide us with some much-needed (not to mention stylish) seasonal wardrobe updates that won’t totally put our bank account into a code red-type situation. But when we heard about Target’s upcoming “tartan takeover” with designer Adam Lippes a few months back, we were a little bit skeptical. How many plaid pieces do you really need? But friends, we’ll be the first to admit that we were sorely mistaken. Target just released the lookbook for the upcoming fall collaboration, and we kind of want everything.
The fall styles are cozy, but super sleek at the same time. In the minimal collection, you’ll find collared dresses, slim blouses and a slew of stylish outerwear pieces. And yes, everything is plaid, but it doesn’t feel like the loud plaid we’re accustomed to. The black and white dress can easily be paired with one of the line’s jackets. A poncho could also be easily be paired with a patterned pump.
Lippes tells Vogue, “The mood of the Target collection is the same as I really convey in the main collection. It’s refined, elegant, and elevated pieces that a woman can have in a wardrobe and keep and take going forward.”
While this line is definitely what we’re eyeing the most, it’s only part of the “tartan takeover” Target has planned. On their blog, they announced that you’ll also find everything from Diet Coke bottles and shampoo bottles to ChapStick tubes and paper towels decked out in the pattern. There are a whopping 360 products included in the line.
Lippes’ 50-item collection is set to hit shelves on September 22nd. If you need us the night before, we’ll be setting up shop outside our favorite red-and-white palace.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
