The $49 Target skirt women are obsessing over

The weather is getting colder – and as shoppers prepare their wardrobe for the winter season, a new item has become a standout.

Target has released its Winterspell collection, with a range of winter warmers in the women's apparel section. Among the pieces, a $49 skirt has caught the attention of fashion bloggers and is expected to be one of the most popular items for the season.

The Preview pleated midi skirt comes with curved hemline, elasticised waistband and block pattern in light blue, pink and white over the navy base.

Since the collection was launched last week, the skirt has made appearances on Instagram with rave reviews from fashion bloggers.

Chelsea Thomas from I Heart Bargains showed off the skirt to her 100,000 Instagram followers as she paired it with a jumper and a pair of white sneakers. “Would you believe me if I said I scored this whole outfit for $94?” she wrote.

Tina Abeysekara from popular blog Trash to Treasured styled the polyester skirt with a blue jumper and kitten heels. “What a pleasure it was to wear!” she wrote. “Absolutely love the fit (size 10), cool print detail and high swish factor.”

The Queensland woman behind curvysam also commended how the skirt comes in bigger sizes. “Let’s be real though – I haven’t been to Target in such a long time to look at clothes,” she wrote.

“Always left feeling let down with the lack of plus size options … [It] can be tough shopping in Aus being over a size 18.

“The skirt is fab! I’m wearing the size 18 and I sized down because the waist is elastic.”

Head to toe $127 outfit from @targetaus inc shoes and necklace. Let’s be real though - I haven’t been to Target in such a long time to look at clothes. Always left feeling let down with the lack of plus size options. They have good basic corporate black pants etc but nothing fun like there is in the main stream section...and I know so many of you curve babes can relate. It can leave you feeling a bit down. It’s can be tough shopping in Aus being over a size 18. Was pleasantly surprised to put together a whole outfit for $127. The skirt is fab! I’m wearing the size 18 and I sized down because the waist is elastic. If you are a size 24-26 I reckon this would fit you. The top is a 20 and slightly tight across my bust. I would have loved to paired it with a white jumper but couldn’t find one in the store in plus sizes. . . Totally influenced after seeing it on @iheartbargains so knew I had to go find myself this swishy skirt 😍 . . If you buy this skirt tag me in your pics so I can check you out. In a non creepo way 😂
