Last year, I wrote about how Net-a-Porter is one of my secret sources of outfit inspiration. It sounds so obvious, and, well, that’s because it is, but I’d bet that most people wouldn’t have considered it for this purpose. However, it isn’t only the designer destinations that are acing it—the other platform that never fails to spark my imagination is Zara.
In my opinion, Zara is one of the brands that top the high-street hierarchy when it comes to autumn fashion, and this is reflected in the way it styles its designs. Obviously, not every single model shot is a work of art, but I find that more often than not, when an item catches my eye, I also fall in love with the outfit. They tread the line between wearable and statement so well.
Don’t believe me? I did a bit of searching in Zara’s new-in section to find five outfits that look just as good as any runway ensemble (if anything, they’re better, as they’re far more suited to day-to-day life). From the ideal way to wear a suit to the easy layering trick that will transition your party dress into the daytime, scroll down to see and shop my favorite Zara autumn outfits right now.
