8 under $20: Target

When we finally finish up finals and return home for the holidays, of course we must run to the mall and soak up the holiday cheer: hum along to the cheesy department store music, watch some kiddies take a picture with Santa and sip on a to-die-for Starbucks Peppermint Mocha (seriously if you haven’t tried it, go get one immediately). And then, after an hour of battling the crowds, we realize we can’t afford anything and walk back to our cars with nothing but a caffeine buzz and an empty red Starbucks cup.

And that, my friends, is when you should head to Target. Not only can you get a gift for everyone on your entire list there, but you can also pick up stuff for yourself without feeling guilty. Seriously, they’ve got a ton (and I mean a TON) of really great stuff under $20 lining those racks. I just want it all. And at these prices, I may just get it all.

If you still haven’t found a dress for Christmas dinner, layer this one under a red cardigan and you’re good to go. Need a party dress for New Year’s? Splurge on some killer heels (since the dress is so cheap), add some sparkly accessories and ring in the new year in (budget) style.

How cute is that little thing happening up on the shoulder? This shirt would look great over a pair of dark skinny jeans and some boots, or even tucked into a high-waisted skirt with black tights and pumps. Best part: the shoulder ruffles are a built-in accessory, so you don’t need to waste your time (or money) looking for a necklace.

Every girl needs a black skirt, so why not a mini that’s cute, flattering and super cheap?

So you just rolled out of bed and you wanna be warm and cozy for class. You could wear some sweats…or you could put on an adorable flannel shirt that will keep you toasty and cute. I don’t know about you, but I’m going with the plaid.

This dress is just perfect for the winter. The warm colors, the longer sleeves, the super luxe gold detailing on the skirt. And you can wear it just about anywhere. It’s conservative enough for dinner with the family but cute (and short!) enough for a night on the town.

You’ve probably got a few pairs of leggings hanging in your closet, but maybe it’s time to add a little something extra to that collection. Like exposed zippers. They give an extra dose of cool to your typical look. Plus, they look damn hot with a pair of pumps.

Snakeskin flats for $12.99? Looks like Christmas came a bit early this year. They’re comfortable, they’re chic, and they’re the quickest way to take that black-shirt-and-jeans combo to a whole new level of fabulous.

I can’t get over this clutch. I love how it’s feminine yet classic all at once. And it’s $8.49. Yes, you read that right. A fabulous clutch for less than that double vodka soda you’ll spill on it later.
