Hi friends – as you know, February is Black History Month! I generally try to feature more Black owned brands/designers during this month, and today I wanted to do just that! Target launched their Future Collective line last year, which previously featured designs by fashion expert and influencer Kahlana Barfield Brown.
This past month, Target unveiled a new line with Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s designs and I am OBSESSED! The brand has also partnered with multiple artists to curate a Black History Month line too. In this post, I wanted to highlight Target’s Future Collective and Black Month History Collections with three looks, and some other pieces I love/have purchased!
Print Mixing + Neon Yellow
This first look is a combination of items from Target’s Future Collective and Black History Month lines! I have been obsessing over lime green/yellow the past couple of months, and I knew I needed this Future Collective sweater in my closet.
I added my End Systemic Racism bag and platform heels with it too to tie in the color more! I am also a huge fan of mixing prints, so I combined this Sammy B. jacket and flower printed pants from Target’s Black History Month collection.
Monochromatic + Analogous Colors
The second look I wanted to style for this post was a monochromatic outfit from Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s Future Collective line! When I saw this stunning blazer, I knew I wanted to pair it over the ruched dress in the line. I had some platform heels in the exact color already, so I HAD to add them and make this a complete look.
Analogous colors are those directly next to each-other on the color wheel. Blue and green as a pairing is one of my favorites (as seen from these looks) which is how I decided to add these abstract earrings and straw bag!
Matching Sets + Pops of Color
I am a huge fan of matching sets, so when I was scrolling through the Future Collective line on Target.com, I chose this denim top and jeans! I love an oversized look, so I went with a large top that I wore over a tighter, blue top.
When I came across this puffy, neon yellow crossbody bag, I immediately thought it would be an iconic pop of color in this otherwise cohesive look!
Target’s Black History Month Collection
Every year, Target has multiple Black designers create collections in their own style. I absolutely love that these individuals are highlighted/celebrated and the designs they come up with are always STUNNING!
I have to admit, Sammy B.’s line was my favorite this year, but I also picked up the mesh athletic top from Jeanetta Gonzales and the Robin Lewallen “5 Friends” scarf. Shop some of my favorite things from the collection below:
Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s Future Collective Line
First, I absolutely love that Target partnered with a plus-sized woman to create a Future Collective line. Plus-sized individuals are almost ALWAYS left out of spaces in the fashion industry, so this made my heart so happy! Second, as a girl who loves color, this line was everything.
The lime green crossbody bag is one I plan to keep in my closet for YEARS to come, and the blue hues throughout the collection worked with so many pieces I already had in my closet. I shared some of my favorite items from her collection below:
I hope you all enjoyed this post! I am absolutely obsessed with Target’s Future Collective and Black History Month Collections and I hope you are too. Since I am posting this on the 26th, I am happy to announce that Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s second release is LIVE! If you’re wondering, yes, I did already purchase the Croissant Sleeve Plisse Crop Top.
