Everyone’s a fan of Spanish cult brand Zara, and with good reason. Week after week, the flagship store rolls out new stocks, meaning you have a reason to visit for any last minute outfit needs, gifts, inspiration or plain eye candy to get you through a mundane day.
Zara seems to resonate well with most age groups, whether their style is preppy, bohemian, punk, or street. Shopping dates with the kids are actually possible thanks to the variety of cool, current moderately-priced garments, shoes and accessories.
A good shopping strategy is getting inexpensive trendy pieces or basics at the store and paring them with big name brands you already own for a unique high/low look.
We styled four looks that may hit the sale racks this month fit for every personality and lifestyle. It’s easy to look amazing when you have a great wardrobe you can play around with, starting with these pieces from everyone’s favorite shopping destination.
The Stylish Mom On The Go
Moms are busy. A dress she can easily throw on and accessorize cuts her morning routine in half and makes time for the more important stuff like having a leisurely breakfast with the fam. Subtle color-blocking with a printed headband completes the look so she can look good while running errands and go straight to merienda with the kids after school.
Pack a cute knitted top and crinkle-free silk pants on your next getaway for a stylish take on resort dressing. A hat is a necessity these days with a double purpose: aesthetics and protection, while a printed scarf provides contrast and keeps your neck warm in flight. Simple suede slides and a structured leather backpack complete the look without it being too predictable.
Weekend Shopping Warrior + Happy Hour Ready
Shopping mission: be comfy. Grab those chic track pants and a crop top for easy fitting room sessions. Throw on a printed jacket and take the look to cocktails, pairing it with a small sling bag for hands-free ease. A cap is optional but it does bring the whole look together nicely. Don’t forget classic white sneaks to better to run to the sale rack with!
Painting The Town Black + Yellow On Girl’s Night
Save the LBD for next time. Play around with texture: try out a tweed jacket, embellished jeans and tee for your next GNO. Give the basic white top and jeans formula a stylish spin by injecting bursts of black and yellow via accessories in varying prints of herringbone and polka dots. Talk about mixing prints to the next level! Top off the ensemble with a playful black cap with cat ears for a cool, cheeky look.
