If you’ve browsed through home décor Instagram anytime within the past couple of years, you’ve likely noticed brightly striped towels hanging neatly in a picturesque bathroom. These gorgeous creations are very likely the brainchild of Dusen Dusen, an indie design brand known for incorporating eye-catching patterns into beautifully designed home pieces, like this grass green checkered throw or these abstract puzzles
that will jazz up your coffee table. But their bold striped bath towels, which were first released in 2019, have become an instant classic—and are perpetually sold out on the site. In bright alternating patterns and punchy monochrome, the towels are easily recognizable from Shelvetok and homes of tastemakers like Jessica Williams and Jasmine Archie. Made from plush 100 percent cotton, these $55 bath-sized towels are definitely on the splurgier side.
Luckily, Target’s newest collections of beach towels are affordable Dusen Dusen dupes. Sun Squad, Target’s in-house summer brand, just dropped their 2023 offerings, and they’ve included similar striped towels in a few different colors. The oversized towels will feel at home in your artfully-arranged bathroom, linen closet or the beach, giving you options to show off your kitschy taste wherever you need to dry off. Like the Dusen Dusen towels, Target’s towels come with long, double-printed vertical stripes in striking colors with a contrasting tone on the opposite side.
Check out some of the standouts below. With these towels, your bathroom will get the sweetest upgrade, but act quickly: like the Dusen Dusen towels, Target’s wares often sell out just as fast.
