No matter how badly we wish that we had the clothing budget of a Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez or Kelly Ripa, sometimes we need pieces that are a little more…affordable. But here’s the good news: Target is here to save the day (per usual). Why, you may ask? Because the mega-retailer’s online store is filled to the brim with trendy fashion finds that look just like some of your favorite designer pieces, just without the high-end price tag attached. We’re talking handbags, shoes, loungewear and accessories—plus everything in between. And the real kicker? They’re all under $50. Here are 15 we’re currently eyeing.

7 Random but Useful Target Finds That Will Streamline Your Week

1. Wild Fable Belt With Removable Pouch

If you’re in the market for a sleek new belt, this style from Target’s line Wild Fable is a dead ringer for Prada’s utility-inspired style of the same ilk.

Size range: XS to XL

2. A New Day Open Cardigan

It's almost sweater season, and we've been searching for a chunky style that won't break the bank. This is an uncanny, affordable alternative to the Free People Nightingale cardiganwhich retails for $108. It has a midweight knit construction and a slightly oversize fit that's perfect for wearing with everything from dresses to jeans.

Size range: XS to 4X

3. Cozy Knit Throw Blanket

This fuzzy throw looks nearly identical to the one by Barefoot Dreams, but it's about $100 cheaper. P.S. Oprah loves the Barefoot Dreams brand, and now you can achieve her effortless elegance at a fraction of the price.

4. Hanes Body Toner Briefs

ICYMI, Kim Kardashian’s loungewear line Skims is slowly but surely becoming a staple in our wardrobe, and we can't get enough of the cozy vibes. We’re currently obsessed with this Hanes style that's got the same look and feel as Skims' form-fitting boy shorts for just $19 (for a pack of three).

Size range: S to XXL

5. Made By Design Sling Pack

Everyone's losing their minds over lululemon's Everywhere Belt Bag, (so much so that it's pretty much sold out everywhere). Luckily, we found a near-identical fanny pack from Target for less than $25. Versatile and functional, you can wear it across the body or as a belt. Whether at a music festival, the office or the grocery store, this is the perfect, hands-free summer accessory.

6. Mad Love Joanna Sandals

If you’ve been lusting after the furry Birkenstocks like everyone else (we couldn’t imagine a better WFH shoe if we tried), allow us to present a budget-friendly option that we think will satisfy that cozy footwear longing.

7. Universal Thread Cadey Sneakers

The famous Golden Goose sneakers cost more than $600, and these Target lookalikes are pretty darn similar, right down to the star. We love the leopard detailing, sparkly laces and how lightweight they are for an easy-to-wear all day sneaker.

8. Auden Mesh Unlined Bra

The girls deserve luxury for less, too. And while we’re always in favor of splurging on intimates and treating yourself, finding styles that won’t break the bank is always a win in our book. Case in point, the Auden bra above that has the same fit and look as one from the intimates brand Cuup, but at a price point your checking account will thank you for.

Size range: 32AA to 38D

9. Universal Thread Aviator Sunglasses

Another brand that’s amassed quite the following on TikTok is Vehla. But if you’re prone to misplacing your sunnies from time to time (read: you’ve lost more pairs than you can count), this twin style is eco-friendly, shatter proof and oh-so affordable, so you can toss ‘em in your beach bag without hesitation.

target dupe ugg

10. Bearpaw Loki Slippers

Don’t get us wrong, we adore our UGG slippers (cue our millennial-fueled excitement that they are trending once again), but if you’re looking to get your hands on a similar style that won’t have you panicking each time you get water on them—these should do the trick.

11. VR NYC Messanger Bag

Yes, this shoulder bag reminds us of one of our all-time favorite Chloe purses (The Marcie), so we fully plan on stocking up on one in both colors. From fall hues and shiny hardware to a creamy faux suede material, you can't go wrong with this pick.

12. A New Day Erin Combat Boots

To be honest, combat boots will never be out of style (meaning you should definitely snag a pair if you don't have one yet). Unlike the always-popular Dr. Martens 8-Eye Boots, which retail for $200, this $40 pair has a comfortable memory foam insole and a lighter overall weight.

13. A New Day Sweater Vest

PureWow editors are obsessed with the Eileen Fisher Funnel Neck Top and the elegant silhouette is available at Target for a fraction of the price. This has a longer cut and no sleeves, so you can wear it through winter by layering long-sleeves underneath.

Size range: XS to 4X

14. A New Day Split Hem Leggings

These may be leggings, but they're super chic and can easily be worn with a cute sweater for a work outfit. The split hem reminds us of the Alo Yoga Kick-Back leggings, and they're $83 cheaper.

Size range: XS to 4X

15. A New Day Faux Leather Dress

Leather, leather and more leather—this fall has us stocking up on a lot of leather staples from jackets to skirts to dresses. This style reminds us of the alice + olivia Leandra Vegan Leather Dress. We love the collar and puff sleeves on this Target one for autumn, and would definitely pair with a set of sheer tights and perhaps those combat boots.

Size range: XS to 4X
