Attention, everyone: The newest drop from JoyLab has finally arrived, and the pieces are good. If you didn’t already know, JoyLab releases a new set of workout items every month at Target. Not only does the collection have extremely desirable price points—with everything under $100—but it also taps into what’s trending in the world of athleisure.

The latest drop is filled with bold, mood-enhancing colors and-of-the-moment prints as well as cool takes on classic workout staples. Ahead, I’m highlighting all of the eye-catching pieces I’m adding to my shopping cart—and because it wouldn’t be a shopping guide without a breakdown of the best trends of the moment, I’ve done just that.

Scroll down to shop my edit of the best new JoyLab pieces for fall, and get some ideas for how fashion girls are styling the trends. The best part? Each and every item is super affordable, ringing in under $35.

Here's a piece that you can easily wear at the gym or in a fashion-forward outfit. Neon is huge this season, and turtlenecks are easily the best layering piece for pulling it off. Wear it alone with jeans, or layer a button-down on top.
