Meet Lauren, Who What Wear's fashion editor and co-founder of The Devils Wear Zara. Lauren is so obsessed with Zara that we started calling her The Zara Scout. Now she's turning the nickname into a franchise so she can regularly share her insider knowledge of the brand, including all her hacks, secrets, and must-haves with you.
A while back, I came clean about my Zara obsession, and I'm here to update you on my current relationship status with the retailer. We are still going strong, visit each other on a regular basis, and continue to prove to each other that we're a great match. In addition to my own Zara journey going painstakingly well, many of you came forward after I talked about my obsessive Zara disorder via your interactions with the Instagram account my co-worker (and BFF) and I run, The Devils Wear Zara. Needless to say, it feels good knowing I'm not alone.
As you're probably well aware, Zara gets in tons of new products weekly, and keeping up with it all is overwhelming. However, thanks to my strange obsession, I have a knack for staying on top of the best new products pretty regularly, which is why today, I decided to share my most recent Zara purchases that I not only love but that also receive compliments every single time I wear them—and not just on Instagram.
From the kimono of my dreams to the new naked shoe trend Zara quickly jumped on, go on to shop the 10 Zara items I am so happy I added to my closet, in addition to the items currently in my shopping cart.
1. Kimono Dress
I love this kimono because you can wear it as a dress or as an elegant third piece. As you can see above, my go-to styling trick for this is to wear it over jeans and tuck one side a little.
2. naked shoes
Once we caught wind of this new shoe trend, there was no turning back. Nearly everyone in our office bought these babies that day, and since, Zara has sold out of the product two times. Luckily, I snagged a pair in the process.
3. Ruffle Skirt
On a recent trip to Mexico, I needed a versatile skirt I could wear over my swimsuit and to a nicer dinner. This one did just the trick.
4. GREEN SUIT
Basically, I saw Courtney Trop wearing a green suit in the summer, so I bought a green suit for the summer.
Our Instagram caption really says it all for this one. Instead of wearing this as a dress, I love throwing it over jeans and a graphic tee for a punchy addition to an otherwise basic look.
6. Unique One-Piece
I also bought this for my trip to Mexico (see photo here), and it was a hit. This suit is extremely comfortable, flattering, and can easily be transformed into a bodysuit by just slipping a jean skirt on top.
7. Satin Slides
8. Breezy Top
To me, summer is all about feeling comfortable, and this extremely light off-the-shoulder top is perfect for achieving that feeling. I love how it looks paired with white pants as styled below.
9. Summertime Set
I've been searching for the perfect matching set, and this gingham one is seriously adorable, if I do say so myself.
10. Cool Platforms
I was kind of nervous for this purchase, not knowing what the green would look like in person, but it's so chic. People always have something to say about this pair of shoes, whether it's a comment about the color or the shape.
The perfect dress for layering.
This handle is modern and sleek (and looks so expensive).
Yes, I need another pair jeans. Don't judge me.
