Many owners of the new brand additions have had diversity top of mind and at the core of their companies since inception.
It’s been a while since we heard anything from Target. Since announcing its four new fashion-y brands, and the launch of Universal Thread earlier this year, which offers a full size range at budget-friendly prices, it seemed as if the retailer was content to let us spend our money (and time!) fast in its locations for the time being. But little did we know Target had something major planned.

One dad is challenging Target to be more gender-inclusive by sharing a common parenting gripe. “Hey @Target I bought my 4-year-old son Spider-Man shoes & now my 2-year-old daughter wants Spider-Man shoes too.

To kick off the start of the spring fashion season, Walmart is launching four new private label brands — Time and Tru, Terra & Sky, Wonder Nation, and George — that prioritize style, fit, and comfort. Each taps into a different sector of the fashion marketplace: womenswear, plus, menswear, and kids. But are the offerings cute? The majority of the collections would not exactly be considered groundbreaking fashion, but there are still some stylish items up for grabs. On the women’s end, from Time and Tru, you can finally get a pair of those trendy patchwork and frayed-hem jeans for just $20, not to mention a chic minimalist tote bag for just $14 and cute spring bow slides for only $7. But it’s actually the men’s collection, George, that really stands out. Just in time for you or your man’s next beach vacation come playful cactus or flamingo printed swim trunks for just $10, plus gingham shirts similar to the J.Crew version, in multiple shades, for $15 (as compared to J.Crew’s $60 price tag). One of the best items from the George collection is a pair of camel derby shoes that are just casual enough to be worn on the weekends, but also professional enough to wear to work daily ($26). The kids line, Wonder Nation, is also a pleasant surprise, with adorable surfer printed shorts or Fenty-Puma inspired pink satin bow slides for $8. But the brand’s dedicated women’s plus line, Terra & Sky, needs some work, as its designers seem to have paid more attention to fit than style. Although hidden details like elastic bands within pants linings and extra underarm coverage on tanks and blouses are great, the bulk of the collection consists of what can be found everywhere else: basic tops and jeans that aren’t exactly groundbreaking. With the plus-size market expanding at a rapid rate across the fashion industry, with brands like Loft diving in, as are designers like Christian Siriano and Prabal Gurung , Walmart has a lot of catching up to do. However, what is commendable is Walmart’s dedication to inclusivity in size and price consciousness, with a majority of the pieces in each collection under $30. Time and Tru offers clothing in sizes XS to XXXL; Terra & Sky accommodates plus-size women between 14W and 30W; Wonder Nation offers kids clothing between 4 and 18; and George offers men’s sizes between S and XXXL. “We listened to our customers and are proud to deliver apparel choices that meet at the intersection of everything they desire: on-trend styles, comfort and quality, all at unbeatable prices,” said Deanah Baker, Walmart’s senior vice president of apparel, in a press release. Overall, the new in-house brands are an honest effort by Walmart to segue into more stylish territory, but it still needs a lot of work. Especially, if Walmart is looking to stand against competitors like Target and Amazon , who have each rolled out their own respective style-conscious collections. Although they all have comparable, affordable price points, the style at Walmart is not on par (yet), but that doesn’t mean that can’t change in the future.

It seems like there's a trend in British heritage brands making fashion news headlines on Thursday morning. (See Burberry's new hire.) Following its successful collaboration with Victoria Beckham, Target announced its next partnership with Hunter. The brand behind the famous Wellington rain ...
We could go on and on about the things we love about Chrissy Teigen, but it’s pretty safe to say that the biggest reason she’s earned so many adoring fans is by being totally relatable. Like many of us, she loves a good Bravo reality show, she’s been brutally honest about her own insecurities (and […]
Brooklyn-based S.W. Basics is now offering Single-Ingredient packets exclusively at the retailer. They're $4 a pop and, as the name suggests, there's only one, very fine-tuned ingredient found in each of the five products.
One of the things—if not the thing—we love about shopping at Target is knowing we’re not going to break the bank, even when it comes to picking up stylish wardrobe staples. The retailer has been a stylists’ and insiders’ secret for some time now (not to mention a go-to for women who love a good steal), and now it’s got big plans to step up its looks-for-less game with the launch of Universal Thread.
Just last year, Target made a big announcement that it was planning on expanding its line of in-house brands. Since then, we've seen the likes of the fashion-forward and size-inclusive ready-to-wear label A New Day and fitness line Joylab, and it seems like the new year is bringing yet another reason to hit its clothing racks. Set to launch early next month, Target announced that it will be rolling out the next addition to its fashion roster, Universal Thread, which ties in size diversity in an otherwise bleak industry and prices at an "amazing everyday value," from $5 to $39.99.
Sure, you could put the same drugstore chocolate and scented candles into each and every stocking this holiday season. But there's a reason those stockings have names on them — everyone is a unique snowflake, and we mean this in the best way. So why should they all be stuffed with the same goodies?
Target just gets it. From the $5 wine (that tastes way better than it sounds) to the new Chip and Joanna Gaines home collection that's rustic chic on a budget, we're always impressed with the mix of stylish and affordable items to fill our red carts to the brim with.
