Earlier this month, Target, my beloved bullseye boutique debuted a new collection and it’s kind of a big deal. I mean, who doesn’t love Target?! But this line in particular was a really exciting venture because per usual, it’s affordable, but more importantly, every garment in the collection goes up to a size 26 {versus just some items being plus}.

Well, it’s all in the styling. Below are a few tips on how to try a different cut of jeans.
