The sun is out and beach season is just around the corner. To celebrate, Target just dropped its Spring 2023 designer collaboration collection, and everything is beach and sun-ready. Seriously the cutest prints are about to drop with matching set styles that’ll take you from the pool to dinner without ever having to change (I swear!).

The three designers that Target collaborated with for the Spring collection are also all female founded *slow clap*. RHODE, Agua Bendita and Fe Noel designs have officially dropped as of April 15, 2023 (links live at midnight), so build your cart ASAP. For real—because sizes sell out soooo fast in designer lines.

There are over 100 pieces available, with most items being $35 and under. All items are available in sizes XXS to 4X. Scroll through to see how I styled the line and some of my favorite stand-out pieces.

Agua Bendita

Agua Bendita was founded 20 years ago by BFF duo Catalina Alvarez and Mariana Hinestroza. They work with over 500 Colombian artists to bring their vision of bright, bold prints to life.

The collection for Target features a mix of swimwear, ready-to-wear sets, dresses, and accessories. Everything can be taken from the beach to the street with a few simple swaps. I’m absolutely in love with this seahorse print. It’s available in a white bandeau top (straps included!) and bikini bottom set with the black skirt to wear over it when you walk from the beach to the bar for a pick-me-up.

What I love so much about this style is that it’s perfect for those times when you’re not sure if you’re going to get in the pool yet but you still want the option to. When the skirt is popped on, it just looks like you’re wearing a high fashion ‘fit. I’m wearing a medium in top and bottom here.

Fe Noel

Felisha (Fe) Noel was just 19 when she opened her Brooklyn boutique for curated vintage. “We’re living our Caribbean roots loud and proud, inspired by the natural resources around us,” said Noel in a press release about the collab. “Fe Noel is about effortless luxury and seeing life in all its beauty. The collab has a mix of swimwear, pants and cover ups.

I fell in love with the green metallic one-piece bathing suit that I styled here with jeans. I’m wearing a size medium in the swimsuit, but be warned, if you’re tall like me (I’m 5’9), there’s definitely some butt-riding-up that’s going on, which might make it uncomfortable to wear without the jeans, just as a swimsuit.

I also fell in love with this two-piece set. I’m wearing a small in the top (it has a stretch, smocked back) and a medium in the pants (also stretches with a zip and clasp closure). The fabric is so light and flowy and I wore it around NYC when the temperature hit 75. It kept me so cool and comfy and would be perfect to throw on during vacation when you’ve been on the beach all day and need to head to a nice dinner.

Plus, a group of girls came up to me and asked me all about it when I wore it on a recent NYC outing. That, my friends, is how you know a collection is good.

RHODE was born in 2014, also from best friend designers Purna Khatau and Phoebe Vickers. “The beauty and vibrancy of India is a constant source of inspiration,” said Khatau in a press release. “We also think a lot about ease and comfort—flattering silhouettes that can be dressed up or down and pieces that make you feel more confident.” The RHODE for Target line includes swimwear, dresses, towels and bags.

It seems I’ve spent my life looking for cute cover-ups and suddenly here RHODE comes to absolutely transform my summer. The Daisy Lotus print bikini top has a rope string that you can wrap around the waist. This definitely elevates the look and makes it seem like the top is $85, not $25 (the actual price!). You can also pick up a matching bikini bottom and skirt. I’m wearing a size small in both the bikini top and the skirt bottom (the skirt bottom has elastic!). You can also get the same print in a one-piece bathing suit if you prefer a bit more coverage.

These are just my favorite pieces from the line and a little inspo on how to style them. Check out the total offering to build your own look or take a cue from my style book. The entire spring collection retails for $15 to $48.
