It takes me forever to find the perfect outfit. Inevitably, I try and toss at least five different looks before I head out the door. Unless I take the time to do some wardrobe planning the night before, you’re likely to find me digging through my closet to locate just the right top to go with those pants, or hunting for the accessory that completes the outfit – right up until it’s time to leave the house. Right about now, I’m dreaming about a collection that’s affordable and on trend – and takes the guesswork out of dressing.

Meet Joseph Altuzarra. This Target designer collaborator has brought us a limited-edition collection that includes women’s apparel, accessories and shoes that scream (or rather, whisper) smart sophistication.

The Joseph Altuzarra collection features chic, versatile pieces that make it easy to take bold fashion risks while maintaining a classic look. With iconic Altuzarra silhouettes, bold prints and innovative pairings, the designs instil a sense of power, elegance and confidence in any woman on the go. We took a peek at the Canadian Lookbook and decided to spotlight three of our favs from the new collection. Which one is yours?

Velvet Blazer in Ruby Red ($59.99) and Velvet Ankle Tuxedo Pant in Red ($39.99) Velvet Blazer in Ruby Red $59.99 Velvet Ankle Tuxedo Pant in Red $39.99 Glam and bold, this blazer and tuxedo pant combo equals one serious power suit. Worn as separates, the wine colour and velvet texture add a bold richness to any outfit. Keep your accessories clean and simple – diamond studs may be enough – and let the suit speak for itself.

Dress in Banker Stripe/Python Print ($49.99) Dress in Banker Stripe, Python Print $49.99

After work cocktail plans? Talk about making dressing simple. Sophisticated and flattering, it’s a dress that’s a shirt-and-skirt-in-one that will take you from day to night with ease. Slip on a classic pair of pumps and you’re ready to go.

Wrap Dress in Red ($39.99) Wrap Dress in Red $39.99

Who needs a LBD when you have this red number in your closet? It’s such a relief to wear something that hugs in all the right places that you won’t believe how often you’ll reach for this figure-flattering, wrap dress. It’s an updated take on a classic wardrobe staple that’s also perfect party wear for the fall season – especially paired with blank ankle strap heels. The brand new Joseph Altuzarra for Target collection launched September 14th and is available exclusively at most Target stores across Canada with a select assortment also available on
