I’m a shopping expert and these are the 15 best new arrivals at Target

Quick Overview
See 15 more

As a shopping writer, I'm dedicated to searching the internet for the best finds to be had out there, so I know a good deal on a great product when I see it. Which brings me to Target's little-known New Arrivals section. Target is one of our favorite one-stop-shops for everything from furniture and home decor accessories to fashion and beauty products, and this under-the-radar stash is absolutely packed with winners. Somehow I managed to narrow it down to my favorite 15 finds (plus five things I would skip). You're welcome. The best news is that prices start at just $5, so you can stock up on multiple pieces at once.

This lightweight midi dress is perfect to throw on and go on a hot summer day. The tie at the waist shows off your silhouette and the breezy cotton material will keep you cool in the heat. It comes in four classic colors and it ranges in size from XS to 4XL.

You can never go wrong with a cute lightweight pair of shorts. Their soft fabric is cozy against the skin and they are size-inclusive, ranging from XXS to 4XL. I love the classic tan color, but there are black and teal versions too!

Wearing a thick foundation is the last thing you want to do on a hot summer day, which is why it was exciting to find this genius hybrid from ColourPop.

Sometimes figuring out what not to buy is just as hard as figuring out what to add to your cart, so I've also included five items from the new arrivals section that can be skipped.
