We all know at this point, Zara can be a hit or miss, but there is no denying that they have some pretty good things with reasonable prices, so I’m never not going to browse their new collections. Lets see what i tried on this time.
But first things first. This is what I wore; an ASOS tee, Topshop skirt, Zara sandals, Mango shell necklace and ViaLia stringy bag. I plan to wear this skirt as long as I can, it’s so flipping good. 🙂
So, Zara realised there are some things worth to bring back in every season, and not only in the Basics line. These mom jeans for example are from the TRF line and I already own them in pale blue, so these were no brainer, especially for £26.
And then this midi skirt. It was the rich mustard yellow that drawn me to it on the first place, but the linen/cotton fabric and fit are amazing as well. I prefer buttons over zip but I don’t mind the metal zip on the back of this one, it works nicely. Cherry on the top is that it’s from the Join Life range and costs £20 which is pretty good.
Here come the shirts. You’ll see I was quite determined to find nice oversized shirts before the season officially ends, and this khaki linen number fits the bill nicely. I don’t know what kind of method Zara use to soften up all its linen garment, but it works. Needless to say I love the pockets and the tortoise shell buttons, and although this photo doesn’t give it justice, the colour is amazing too.
Also available in brown (and grey too).
Back to TRF. This cropped shirt is made of modal and would have been a serious contender if it wasn’t for the linen shirts above and I prefer long sleeves anyway.
Bit of break before we swing back to shirts. How awesome is this linen jumpsuit? Too bad I felt it a bit constrictive despite it’s oversized fit (this is size XS). Maybe that’s the nature of jumpsuits in the first place, but I’m pretty sure I should be able too raise my arms above my head no matter what I’m wearing. 🙁
I’m always up to try little white blouses, because why not and also because the above mentioned softness of Zara’s linen. This fabric is no exception, but I didn’t like the fit on me. Why every blouse is so baggy and dangerously low cut? Sigh…
And then last shirt, and last item overall again from the Join Life range. It’s made of lyocell which means it’s very airy and breathable but for £26, but I didn’t buy it in the end. Maybe if they had tortoiseshell buttons… 🙂
