Everyone looks forward to a Target run, but when the retailer announces a designer collection, everyone literally runs to get their hands on the newest wardrobe must-haves. It's not every day that you get to step into high-end fashion for less than $100, but with each seasonal drop, the retailer proves it's possible — and doesn't disappoint.

One Shop TODAY contributor had the chance to try a few items from the spring Designer Dress Collection, which included pieces from Christopher John Rogers, RIXO, and ALEXIS, before they flew off of the shelves. That's why we've had our calendars marked for Sept. 25 the moment we found out the Target Fall Designer Collection was in the works.

This limited-time collaboration includes over 180 wardrobe essentials from designers Rachel Comey, Victor Glemaud, Sandy Liang and Nili Lotan — and is officially available to shop right now.

Each designer has curated a collection of modern and trendy apparel that is perfect for fall, but all of the pieces can be worn long after the season ends. The selection goes beyond shirts and dresses — you'll find everything from polka dot sets and quilted joggers to leather blouses and Sherpa jackets in this season's drop.

What might possibly be the best part? Target says that most items are under $50 this time around, so you can stock your closet with designer goodies without breaking the bank. This collaboration is also keeping in line with Target's inclusive sizing, as you'll be able to shop every single piece in sizes XXS-4X.

Below, we rounded up some of the styles Target sent us to try, along with other stunning essentials that are worth checking out. From a chic pencil skirt to trendy flare pants, read on for the standouts you should shop from Target's Fall Designer Collection — before they're gone!

Introduce a major pop of color to your fall closet with this mock turtleneck. The fun design and relaxed fit are perfect for dressing up or down, depending on the occasion and the accessories you pair it with.

Victor Glemaud x Target Polka Dot Cardigan

Fall is all about layering, and this cardigan is perfect for the season. Pair it with a solid tee or dress to polish off your stylish look.

Victor Glemaud x Target Polka Dot Tank Top

Your everyday tank top gets a cozy, knit feel thanks to this piece in Glemaud's collection. The rib-knit hemline hits right at the waist, so you can tuck it into high-waisted jeans or the matching skirt to pull off a breezy look.

Victor Glemaud x Target Polka Dot Midi Sweater Skirt

Stretchy bottoms are in right now, but you don't have to wear sweatpants to keep comfortable. This pull-on skirt feels just like your favorite sweater and can be dressed up or down for whatever the day brings.

Victor Glemaud x Target Animal Print Long Sleeve Dress

If animal prints are the new neutral, you'll find yourself pairing this dress with nearly everything. Though the length is modest enough to wear alone, you can easily toss it over leggings or jeans if you prefer.

Victor Glemaud x Target Cropped Pullover Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt somehow manages to look trendy and cozy all at the same time. It features a stretchy construction and a wide funnel neck. Shop now while most sizes are still in stock! Then, complete the matching-set look with the flared pants below.

Victor Glemaud x Target High-Rise Flare Sweatpants

Described by the retailer as "not your average sweatpants," these athletic-looking flare bottoms are as cute as they are comfortable. They're made with a pull-on design, which means you won't have to bother with pesky zippers or buttons.

Rachel Comey x Target Faux Leather Textured Pencil Skirt

Faux leather is always a stylish fabric for fall, and we love this dreamy croc-embossed piece. Aside from the gorgeous texture, this skirt also features tortoise button detailing and side pockets.

Rachel Comey x Target Checkered Oversized Shirt Jacket

The shacket trend has also found its way into Target's Fall Designer Collection. A shirt-jacket hybrid, it makes for the perfect layering piece for fall.

Rachel Comey x Target Marble Print High-Low Sweatshirt

Featuring banded cuffs and a gorgeous pink-and-white marble pattern, you'll want to wear this sweatshirt all fall long.

Rachel Comey x Target Long Sleeve Faux-Leather Top

If your cart is already full of Rachel Comey's incredible designs, you might want to make room for this sleek faux-leather top. The draping silhouette, gorgeous pleating, back-tie closure, fall-ready navy color — honestly, what's not to love? (You can even shop the matching pants while sizes are still available!)

Rachel Comey x Target Cuff Straight Leg Cropped Pants

Designed with front seams and slim pockets, these high-rise cuff pants pair perfectly with your favorite sweater or with the marble print sweatshirt above. For coziness and convenience, they are made from 99% cotton and are machine-washable.

Rachel Comey x Target Chevron High-Rise Wide Leg Tweed Pants

These pants boast the look of office-appropriate trousers but feature an elastic waist that makes them comfortable enough to wear all day long. They're not only chic, but also functional, thanks to the side pockets.

Rachel Comey x Target Plaid Sherpa Collared Overcoat

This below-knee-length overcoat has a cozy Sherpa-lined collar and is made from a wool-polyester blend material. It's perfect for layering — we recommend wearing it over your favorite shirt or dress. With so many sizes already sold out, it's clear that many shoppers are scooping these up for the season. But there are still a few left, so we suggest adding one to your cart before they're gone for good!

Sandy Liang x Target Crewneck Eyelet Pointelle Pullover Sweater

Lightweight and airy, this sweater is a breathable layer for fall, but we can also see it fitting right into our spring 2022 wardrobe. The lettuce trim on the sleeves and hem also adds a subtle detail that makes this piece stand out from others in your wardrobe.

Sandy Liang x Target Gingham Pocket Sherpa Jacket

Teddy coats have been a fall staple for several years now, which is why we're glad to see this updated take on the trend. It's made with plush Sherpa that you'll never want to take off and features a functional gingham pocket that breaks up the fabric, a nod to Liang's signature style.

Sandy Liang x Target Mid-Rise Quilted Jogger Pants

If you want to step out in designer fashion but keep sweatpants in your fall rotation, you'll want to snag Liang's quilted joggers. These mid-rise bottoms feature a full elastic waistband and metallic details that add an extra flair to this all-black ensemble.

Sandy Liang x Target Mid-Rise Straight Leg Pocket Pants

If you prefer a mid-rise fit but want to take elastic-waist bottoms out of the equation this season, these khakis are worth considering. They're made from 100% cotton, so they're breathable enough to wear on those unusually hot fall days.

Sandy Liang x Target Long Sleeve Jumpsuit

We're swooning over this utilitarian jumpsuit. You can dress it up with heels for a night out, pair it with sneakers if you'll be on your feet all day or neutral booties to polish off your casual-chic look.

Sandy Liang x Target Floral Print Long Sleeve Dress

We're falling for florals this fall — and for sleeves that bring the drama. This flattering dress doesn't disappoint, thanks to its ruffle insets and crewneck design. But this cute number is going fast, so grab one while you can!

Sandy Liang x Target Gingham 3/4 Sleeve Shirtdress

Day-to-night wear just got a little trendier with this cute mini gingham number. Class it up with your favorite heels and gold accessories or create your own stylish look with a pair of black booties and statement jewelry. Either way, the cotton material will keep you comfortable, while the button-front and ruffle detailing will have you fending off passersby asking where you got that dress.

Nili Lotan x Target

Nili Lotan x Target Long Sleeve Ruffle Blouse

This blouse is the perfect office attire staple. The subtle yet dainty ruffles add some texture to a classic long-sleeve shirt. This top is also a sustainable swap for your closet — it's made with 30% recycled polyester.

Nili Lotan x Target Paisley Print Long Sleeve Belted Shirtdress

Fashion trends dating back to the '70s are enjoying a renaissance right now, including fun designs like the paisley print. This midi dress features a palette that is autumn-ready and can easily be dressed up or down. You might want to add this to your cart ASAP — only a few sizes are still available!

Nili Lotan x Target Leopard Print Slip Dress

Featuring a lightweight material, adjustable spaghetti straps and a bold print, this dress is another great layering piece for your wardrobe. Try styling it with a black long-sleeve turtleneck underneath for a perfect ready-for-fall outfit.

Nili Lotan x Target Cableknit Cardigan

People are raving over cable knit sweaters this year, so hop on the trend with this pick from Lotan's collection. It has ribbed cuffs, an open front and will keep you cozy all season long.

Nili Lotan x Target Wide Leg Cargo Pants

These wide-leg pants are giving us some serious '70s vibes. We've spotted celebrities in wide-leg pants since the start of the summer, and it's one trend we think will be around for quite some time.

Nili Lotan x Target Camo Print High-Rise Skinny Jeans

Another print that has been declared a neutral? Camo print. These slim-fit jeans will ensure a sleek look, whether you pair them with a T-shirt or chunky sweater.
