If you're like us, you've definitely set a phone reminder hoping to snatch up the most coveted items from one of Target's Future Collective collections before it inevitably sells out. The latest drop from Jeneé Naylor had us on standby with laptops open and coffee in hand when it released in May. Naylor, a content creator and 11-year Target alumni, created a summer-perfect collection filled with stylish sets that can be mixed and matched, flowy dresses perfect for summer weddings, structured minidresses, and more. Sizes range from XXS through 4X and 00 through 30, and most items are under $35.

While most pieces sold out almost immediately, we noticed that a restock has finally rolled in — the perfect second chance opportunity! While we've gushed in one-off reviews of Future Collective pieces in the past, we decided to double down this time, tapping three editors to give a thorough rundown of three different looks. Keep reading to see the outfits we chose, along with our honest thoughts on everything from fit to comfortability.

Crewneck Open Stitch Sweater and Mid-Rise Open Stitch Sweater Shorts

Future Collective with Jeneé Naylor Crewneck Open Stitch Sweater ($30) and Future Collective with Jeneé Naylor Mid-Rise Open Stitch Sweater Shorts ($28)

"This collection has so many cute sets, but the mint green color and sweet details on this sweater and shorts duo immediately caught my eye. It has a whimsical, retro vibe that looks especially adorable with cat-eye sunglasses and a straw bucket hat. The open-knit sweater is breathable, so I can wear it on warm days with a neutral tank top layered underneath.

My only critique is that sizing for the shorts can be tricky. They have a lot of material in the front that can bunch up around the crotch, but are also quite short, which makes it hard to size down. Still, the scallop-trim and knit combo feel so unique that I'm making do with the subtle bunchiness. Now, all I need is a Palm Springs vacation." — Angela Elias, contributing editor, Commerce

Ruffle Ankle Length Dress

Ruffle Ankle Length Dress

Future Collective with Jeneé Naylor Ruffle Ankle Length Dress ($40)

"The Red Floral Ruffle Ankle Length Dress is one of my favorites from this collection — it just screams vacation mode. This dress is made for dancing, especially with its side slit. The ruffles add dimension and movement, which is such a fun flair — I feel like I'm on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

I am 5'1", and this dress hits right below the ankle, so it's better to wear heels with it if you want it off the ground. It also has adjustable straps, but you won't be able to fully tighten the strap that has the ruffle detailing. It's such a vibrant and bold summer dress I'll be wearing for brunches, dinners, vacations, and salsa nights." — Anvita Reddy, assistant editor, Commerce

Sleeveless Blazer Minidress

Sleeveless Blazer Minidress

Future Collective with Jeneé Naylor Sleeveless Blazer Mini Dress ($38)

"I rarely wear red, but when I saw the options from Jeneé Naylor's new Target line, I decided to give the color a try, and to my surprise, I loved it! One thing I can say about the line is that it's comfortable. Lately, I've been choosing staple pieces that can easily be paired with other items in my closet, and I've already imagined the different ways I'll be styling these pieces with items I already own. The blazer dress can be worn dressed up with heels or down with sneakers." — Shari Straker, social content producer
