Exactly How to Style Those Designer Dresses From Target You Just Scored

There’s simply no way to sugarcoat it: Designer clothing in sizes larger than 14 is nearly nonexistent. Depending on the article of clothing, many of us would likely be better off hunting down Big Foot. Of course, we have resources like 11 Honoré—which helps make the search a bit less daunting—but the accessibility will always be lacking. Part of that is sizing itself, and the other is price. Even if we’re lucky enough to find a designer piece in our size, the price tag might prevent us from adding it to our wardrobes. But what if we could have our cake and eat it too? That’s the thinking behind the latest collection of plus-size designer dresses at Target.

In a much-anticipated drop, Target has released an abundance of size-inclusive (up to a 4X) dresses from designers Christopher John Rogers, ALEXIS, and RIXO. From over-the-top floral frocks to simpler silhouettes with bold hues, this dress collection is aching to be seen. Not to mention, each and every piece is affordable—as in, nothing is over $60. (!) Whether you’re an avid fan of the three designers or not, this is a major deal.

Like any limited edition collection from Target, the dresses are selling out incredibly quickly. It’s likely the retailer won’t restock what’s already sold out—but we’re not giving up hope. Thankfully, plenty incredibly cute plus-size designer dresses at Target are still available. Our advice? Hop to it—and then join us in styling the heck outta them all.

Here at Unruly, we’re committed to featuring plus-size pieces we genuinely love and want to share with you. We’re connected to an affiliate revenue program, which means we might make a small commission when you buy products through our shopping guides. This in no way affects pieces we choose to feature, and it never will. (Confused? We’d love to answer any questions you have about this. Email us at beunrulyinfo@gmail.com!)

1. The Over-the-Top Floral Dress

As we plan to do with all of the maximalist floral dresses from this collection, we’re pairing this Christopher John Rogers pick with classic black accessories. Opt for a bag that’s simple but unique, too. It’ll add a bit of interest and ensure your accessory game is just as strong as your dress game.

5. The Drama Collar Colorblock ‘Fit

OK, this colorblock Christopher John Rogers dress is delightfully dramatic. The collar is reminiscent of 18th century royalty, and the colors are a summer dream. We’re pairing it with a bold bag, platform sandals, and a chic shell bracelet—but honestly, the dress speaks for itself.
