Casual dresses are one thing I love to stock up on during the winter season. By themselves, they seem more of a summer staple, and stores tend to discount them SEVERELY once the temperature starts to drop. But, if you’re smart, you can take that shot-sleeved T-Shirt dress, throw a warm cardigan over it, pull some tights on under it, slap on your favorite pair of boots, and come out on top with an awesome cold-weather outfit that costs next-to-nothing.
Not to mention the comfort factor! Nothing (not even jeans) is more blissfully comfortable than a casual dress and some comfy leggings. I have around ten different outfits that center around the dress/leggings/boots/hat combo…all in different colors and dress styles (empire-waist, t-shirt, kimono, drop-waist, etc.) LOVE IT!! Then, once summer rolls back around, you can wear them with bare legs, sexy sandals, movie-star sunglasses, and a hair scarf! Double bang for you buck!!
Anyway, if you’re short on cash, and longing for a wardrobe boost (maybe Santa didn’t fulfill your wardrobe fantasies this Christmas…), here are a few clearance finds from Target that I found (and I own a few of them and can attest to their fit, durability, and ease of wear.)
And don’t forget Target ships free for orders over $50, or you can check sites like retailmenot.com for promo codes that will score you free shipping, or even an extra percentage off your order. And don’t forget, Target’s online coupons change frequently; they often have a coupons for $$ off specific brands of clothing they sell!!
Blue-Green Satin Kimono Dress for only $7!! Very feminine, and also exotic for those who like to rock a bit of a Boho vibe! (like me!)
Short Sleeved T-Shirt Dress in Cafe Latte Only $8!! The T-Shirt's perfect evolution. Just add leggings, a knit hat, a few different long necklaces in different lengths for a bit of casual bling, and some flat, mid-calf or ankle boots in a comfy material and you'll never need to put your pj's back on (but you'll look great!!)
Mossimo Baby Doll Dress in Ebony (I have this one...not as short as shown in the pic unless you're pushing 6'! Perfect with leggings, boots and a cute button-down sweater!) Only $6.30!!!
3/4 Sleeve, drop-waist dress in Anthem Red (many more colors available, and wait until you see how cute the back of this dress is!!) Again, only $6.30!! Wowza!!
All these styles and more can be find in the Women’s clearance section of Target.com. Happy Shopping!!
With prices like these, if you find a favorite, stock up!! Who says you can’t stockpile clothing??
