Zara September 2020 – SLP’s Top Picks

This denim shirt from Zara is adorably simple yet modern. I love the banded collar, and snaps at the opening but the ruffle edged yoke looks chic and fresh. Love it styled with the denim jean in the lookbook, as the new denim tuxedo. It would also dress up a faux leather pant or a skinny printed silk pant. For weekends pair it with skinny cords, and a beanie and sneakers for a relaxed weekend look.

This Victorian inspired Dotted lace top is a delicate shade of light blush. I love the micro pleated collar and black trimming, and the sweet bands of lace intricately pieced throughout. The Victoriana trend is hot for Fall 2020, so add this to a simple washed black jean to elevate your look.

This luxe lurex knit jacket/cardigan looks fantastic alone with a cami or jeans or over the co-ord knit dress Zara is selling. It’s a fabulous shade of dark Taupe in a sparkly lurex knit. The Balloon sleeves and very deep v-neck make it feel fresh and designer looking. The gold rimmed enamel buttons further elevate this closet staple.

I am totally loving this black and white printed Wrap Dress with fabulous balloon sleeves, and adore it worn slightly open over skinny or flared jeans. It has that Ali McGraw Love Story vibe when layered over jeans. Complete it with gold necklaces and pendants layered at the neck and a pair of knee high or ankle boots. It’s a total vibe.

This sky blue Limited Edition coat is stunning. Looking very similar to a MaxMara style, it is part of Zara’s more expensive ‘handmade’ or ‘Limited Edition’ pieces. It has an effortlessly chic vibe and will layer over just about anything in your wardrobe. Throw on over your work from home sweatpants for a quick dash to the coffee shop and look fabulously luxe.

This strong shouldered grey satin shirt elevates and modernizes a simple pant for a work or evening look. The strong pleated shoulders look incredibly fresh for the season, similar to the Tee shirts with the shoulder pads we were seeing in the Summer.

Something a little more feminine this Lavender ditsy printed ruched blouse would look effortlessly feminine over a pair of jeans for a going out look. I love the shade of Lavender and the all over ruching details. It looks far more expensive than the price suggests.

This Printed Cheongsam Dress reminds me of the 90’s. When I first moved to NYC, my go to style was a Cheongsam (I bought mine in Hong Kong in multitude of colors) layered over skinny pants. I’m loving that this look is back as are many 90’s trends. This printed version in tons of deep green, black and deep ivory looks refined but cool.

One of my personal favorites of this Zara shop-up is this Velvet Fringe Skirt. A pencil shaped skirt gets a new edge with a swath of fabric draped at the front, and a curved hem with fringed trim. Throw on a silk blouse, or a cami for a simple evening look (don’t forget a matching Velvet mask!).

Another Victorian inspired piece, this Dotted Mesh Dress can be worn alone over a seamless slip or over jeans and a cami. I’m loving the shirtdress over jeans look for Fall 2020. This style gets a refined twist with crystal look buttons, tiering and smocking.

I’m loving the cropped Culottes this Fall. This warm honey beige pair with self fabric belt is a great staple for early Fall. Love them with a tee or light cashmere sweater tucked in worn with loafers or white sneakers.

Zara always have fabulous tops, and this Red pussy-bow tie blouse hits the spot. With adorable pin tucks, insets of lace and a sweeping bow – this item will dress up any leather or faux leather pant or skirt. Would also freshen up and add the Victorian trend to a classic black suit.

Happy Shopping!
