If you’ve been on TikTok recently, you know that Target fashion has seriously upped its game over the past few years. And that’s partly due to the series of new designers they’re working with and developing collections with. One such collaboration, called Future Collective at Target, will skip curated designs with many style influencers for the rest of this year.
The first drop was with fashion expert and influencer Kahlana Barfield Brown. Brown will continue to roll out new models throughout the fall, but I tested samples from the first collection, which includes tops, bottoms, skirts, outerwear, and accessories. Her collection is a mix of fun prints, matching sets, and everyday office items that you can easily use and put together without much thought. Look polished and professional all day long. But while some crop tops work perfectly under blazers (also in the collection!), they also look really cute when alone and make great transitions to go out with friends at the weekend.
Here are three images from the gallery I tried and my honest review of all of them.

Sweater and pants
I love this sweater and I’m wearing the little one in the photo. The contrasting black neckband and neckline makes this watch look much more expensive than it really is. Plus, the cardigan has minimally sewn “cup” lines to give you some shape and character. There are no pre-sewn bras but circles sewn for size. I want to wear this bra less, but hey, that’s just me.
This shirt would look great with a blazer and pair with these pants to work or even with a leather skirt or black leather shoes. The pants are great knit and have a little stretch, but I find myself not fitting them well. I ordered size 10 but the waist is a bit big. I normally have a 30-inch waist and 42-inch hips, so the pants fit my hips well but leave some space at the waist. I would downsize some of these if you want to pick them up.
Utility A-line skirt
This dress looks so unique and I love that it matches your personal waistline with the built-in tie that wraps around the waist. The material has a denim-like feel, so if you’re like me and get hot easily, it might not be the best outfit for your errands. I’m envisioning wearing this more at fall dinners when it’s still safe to leave your feet bare.
I’m 5’9 and don’t think it’s too short, but I sure wear shorts underneath when I step outside. The dress also comes in standard denim. One of my wishes is for buttons to be attached instead of the standard ones; it will make getting in and out of it much easier.
Knit Top and Mini Skirt Set
This is a cute way to enhance your love of sets and make them applicable to hanging out. However, the skirt is VERY short. So short that I’m not sure if I’ll ever feel comfortable wearing it out. I’m wearing plus size in this photo and my butt (larger than my waistline) doesn’t leave much room for walking around in this dress. The second I moved it started going up a bit.
I’m wearing the small shirt in this photo, and although the cropped top fits perfectly in the small size, I think I could have stood to upgrade to a medium. The arms are quite tight and small which makes the shirt swell a lot every time I lift them up.
