5 Summer Fashion Collaborations to Look Forward To

5 Summer Fashion Collaborations to Look Forward To

We know you’ve been home shopping your pretty little hearts away, so how can we not bring you our favorite collections that are heading our way! With the pandemic causing what’s expected to be a socially distant summer, several fashion brands are trying to add some excitement to the season with fun collaborations and we are here for it. Here are 5 of our favorite collaborations to keep a close watch on.

1. Target’s Designer Dress Collection

One of the most anticipated fashion collaborations is coming from Target, which is continuing its tradition of teaming with high fashion designers. We love this because they bring us fashion from high scale lines at extremely reasonable prices. This summer the retailer is tapping three female-led fashion labels — LoveShackFancy, Cushnie, and Lisa Marie Fernandez — for a summer dress collection that evokes the feminine style each brand is known for.
