How To Wear Lilly Pulitzer For Target, Even If You're Not A Palm Beach Kind Of Gal

We're just days away from the April 19 debut of Target's collaboration with Lilly Pulitzer, which will be available both in-store and online. And if it's anything like the mega store's past designer collections, we know that it will sell out fast -- really fast.

The 250-piece Lilly Pulitzer collection, which includes both fashion and home decor items, is a spot-on and affordable interpretation of the signature Palm Beach or country club look for which the brand is known and loved. However, all those punchy colors and ultra feminine frills can be polarizing, especially for those of us who prefer a more neutral look.

But thankfully there's a little something for everyone in this collection. Lilly loyalists will love the printed shift dresses and swimsuits, while ladies who have never owned a stitch of LP will be pleasantly surprised by simple pieces like the white eyelet crop top and gold espadrille sandals.

To prove this point, a few of us ladies here at The HuffIngton Post were able to get our hands on some of the coveted pieces and decided to incorporate them into our personal styles. The result was a range of ensembles that spanned, from a diehard Lilly fan's perfect spring outfit to a skeptic's first time wearing LP.

Check out the looks below and let us know what you think of them in the comments section.

I am a Lilly Pulitzer fan, so I was really excited to hear about the Target collaboration. This dress looks like it could've been right off the Lilly Pulitzer store shelf, as opposed to a piece from the Target capsule collection. It's so comfortable and could easily be worn day or night -- dressed up or down. I think it's always important to add some personal touches with accessories, so that's why I wore white pumps. -- Cavan Sieczkowski, Senior Trends Editor, wears the "Fan Dance" shift dress, $38 and "Boom Boom" tote bag, $30

I thought a lime green-and-white crop top had no place in my closet, but I was wrong. The boxy shape made it a wearable and really comfortable crop top, which was the key to its success. It was easy to pair it with some distressed jeans and ballet flats on the first day that actually felt like spring. -- Katelyn Mullen, Managing Lifestyle Editor, wears the "Boom Boom" crop top, $24 and "Nosey Posey" raffia tote bag, $30

These pants were dangerously soft -- I could see myself wearing them to bed, work and then bed again! The bold pattern adds a little zip to all my plain white tops. -- Suzy Strutner, Associate Lifestyle Editor, wears the "Giraffeeey" palazzo pants, $28 and straw fedora, $20

This printed jumpsuit fit my body like it was tailor-made for me -- not an easy feat as a woman with small boobs and a thin physique. I'm not into showing a lot of skin, so I paired this piece with my new favorite Opening Ceremony letterman jacket and white slip-on sneakers from Forever 21. I love how the sportswear accessories gave this Lilly Pulitzer jumpsuit some edge. -- Dana Oliver, Executive Fashion & Beauty Editor, wears the "Upstream" strapless jumpsuit, $40

My piece was white with fringe and those are two things I usually lack in my wardrobe. That said, I appreciate how the piece can pretty much go with anything. I've never been to Coachella, but I was feeling those vibes with my outfit -- and if you can't be there, you should just dress the part. It's almost the same thing, right?-- Chanel Parks, Associate Style Editor, wears the "Fringe" kimono jacket, $30

I very rarely wear color or anything preppy, so I was doubtful that I would find anything that I liked in the Lilly Pulitzer x Target collection. But when I saw this white eyelet crop top, I was pleasantly surprised. It will go well with all the denim I plan on wearing this summer and the shorter length is perfect for all my high-waisted items. -- Michelle Persad, Fashion Editor, wears the "Crochet" crop top, $32
