You don't have to be an It girl to know that Fashion Week is upon us.

Again, even if you're not following the runway shows, you can still benefit from the trends we saw out and about this past month. One of the biggest misconceptions is that everything you see on the runways is unwearable in real life. Yes, some trends might be hard to pull off, but if you're open to trying out a few of them, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised with your newfound style status.

We promise, these 14 fashion week-inspired pieces from Target's new brand Prologue will find you having the sudden fall fashion moment you never knew you needed.

Pinstripe Pants

Jeans are great and will forever be a favorite, but it's always nice to switch it up once in a while. For an equally classic vibe, but with a twist, try a pinstripe pant. P.S. They're still considered a neutral, so wear them with anything.

Lilac Button-Up

Looking to class up your basics? Swapping a plain cotton T-shirt for a crisp button-up will be the easiest thing you ever did. You'll look like a boss if you pair it with slacks and then to dress it down, just wear it with jeans (and leave it untucked).

Collared Shirt Dress

We love a shirt dress for one reason: It's stress-free. It's literally one item you can throw on and feel and look pulled together. And since this is all you need to be ready to go, don't be afraid to try it in a fun fall pattern.

Oversize Sweater Dress

Did someone say sweater weather? If you're one who says, "Yes, please!" to oversize cozy sweaters, you've come to the right place. We especially love this one because it comes with pockets (yes, pockets!). Bonus: The sleeves are super stylish pushed up or down, so wear away!

Cropped Flares

OK, here's the fall trend you didn't know you needed: cropped flares. You might already own cropped denim (a good move) and you might also be giving the flared look a try (smart). So question, why not combine them? Trust us when we say it's a comfy-chic look you won't regret.

Gray Joggers

Remind us to thank whoever made the athleisure trend a solid street style option. This pair is our new favorite because of the textured suiting fabric, which makes these joggers an ideal option for dressing up or dressing down.

Wrap Skirt

There's only one thing we like more than fall sweaters, and that's fall skirts. Instead of a summery denim mini, try an asymmetric midi-length option with knee high-boots and you'll look like you're off to fashion week yourself. 

BUY IT: Prologue™ Brown Women's Asymmetrical Wrap Skirt, $24.99

Mock Neck Sweater

Like we said, we're big fans of oversized sweaters; but for every oversized sweater you own, you need a fitted one too. We like this mock neck with pencil skirts for the office and with jeans on days off.

BUY IT:  Prologue™ Women's Long Sleeve Mock Neck T-Shirt, $19.99

Long Sleeve Knit Dress

This black sweater dress is your LBD, cold weather edition. The fit is exactly what you're looking for in a dressy option, but it's also a good weekend look. Throw a casual sweater on top for a low-key vibe, or just add heels and you're cocktail party ready.

Black Blazer

Calling all blazer lovers: We found your new fall staple. A black take plays well with any outfit--this you know. For a cool girl update, focus on subtle details. Details like this rad D-ring closure and sharp peak lapels teamed with a relaxed overall fit, for instance.

Printed Dress

If you feel like your fall wardrobe needs a little pop, look no further than this pretty printed dress. It still falls within a subdued seasonal color palette, but the exaggerated print is a welcome wardrobe addition.

Tweed Coat

On the hunt for a new autumn coat? Might we suggest this one we saw being worn all fashion week-long. This black and white herringbone take is the perfect inner outerwear piece (i.e., it's perfect for layering). Did we mention it's roomy and really comfy? 

BUY IT: Prologue™ Black/White Women's Long Sleeve Jacquard Tweed Overcoat, $49.99

Sherpa Vest

Layering is the fall way, so you're smart to stock up on vests. This cozy Sherpa number comes in an exaggerated length that will make any outfit extra chic. Wear it with jeans and a turtleneck or even layer it over a dress for a little added warmth.

BUY IT: Prologue™ Cream Women's Sleeveless Sherpa Longline Vest, $44.99

Plaid Suit

A pantsuit is always cool—period. To update the look for 2018, opt for a relaxed-fit blazer that pairs perfectly with the high-waist trousers, but can stand alone just fine. And about the trousers: That front ankle slit is a purely genius way to show off whatever shoe you choose to sport.
