The Under-$100 Fashion-Girl Shopping Secret
From fabulous vacations to five-star meals, there's no shortage of Instagram inspiration out there. But when it comes to wallet-friendly shopping tips, there's good news on that front too!
That's because your go-to wardrobe shopping staple, Zara, also happens to be a not-so-well kept secret among fashion bloggers.
So, not only only do these outstanding outfits provide styling inspiration, but they are chock-full of pieces you can actually buy — and now! Read on to see some of our favorite style-superstar-approved picks and how fashion's elite are wearing them.
New York-based Grasie Mercedes's Zara Split Suede Slides With Bow ($30) have a whimsical silhouette that screams "Summer" but a rich, burnt-orange hue that's all Autumn.
A Sweet Top
Argineh Danelian put her California spin on Zara's fresh-off-the-runway find with a relaxed pairing. This versatile striped Zara Multi-Position Shirt ($50) can not only be tied a multitude of ways, but also pairs well with a variety of bottoms (and we're not just talking Danelian's easy, worn-in denim).
Mix-master Celine Caraffa expertly played with volume when she paired a sporty white t-shirt with paper-bag-waist trousers. While her exact pair is no longer available, Zara's Trousers With Gathered Waist and Belt ($50) have a neutral tone to complement her sophisticated over-the-shoulder jacket.
A Billowy Top
When you're in a city as noisy as New York, volume is key. Alyssa Simakas knew just that when she paired her full-sleeved Zara Off-the-Shoulder Top ($50) with classic denim cutoffs.
A Chainlink Crossbody
The only thing better than adding a great bag to your collection is when said bag doesn't break the bank! Munich's Lisa Seibold stayed true to her minimalist, black-and-white aesthetic when she opted for Zara's Crossbody Bag With Embossed Chain ($100).
A Sleek Topper
Warsaw's Pamela Szczerba did monochrome right with a sleek mix of Zara's Waistcoat With Metal Side Grommets ($70) and streamlined black extras. The clean lines of this overcoat-inspired style make it ideal for layering come Fall.
Not afraid to make a statement? Kyrzayda Rodriguez's Zara Multi-Strap Sandals ($50) are powerful on their own or paired with a subdued LBD, but pack a real punch worn with a playful mini.
A Playful Dress
One half of Miami's power dressing duo Iron N Salt, Daniela Moreno, brought together another compelling duo in her black and white Zara Polka Dot Dress ($13). Though the design is demure, '90s-inspired finishing touches added a little edge to this sweet style.
A Ribbed Jumpsuit
High-low dresser Filipa Jackson is no stranger to pairing designer pieces with Zara finds. The fashion blogger paired her easy Zara Ribbed Jumpsuit ($13) with luxe extras for an outfit that only looked expensive.
A Retro Blouse
Zara's Puffy Lace Top ($10) is not only made for showing off a sculpted set of shoulders, but is also an ideal canvas for vintage-inspired extras like blogger Daniela Ramirez's cat-eye sunglasses and navy bandana.
