8 Essential Trends Zara Has Already Nailed for Summer

There may be other places we turn to for investment buys and extra-special pieces, but for of-the-moment trends and instant wardrobe refreshes, it has to be Zara. Don’t ask us how, but it always seems to be ahead of the season’s biggest trends, which is impressive and honestly unusual for a high-street brand. It’s part of the reason we (and you) love it so much. 

Right now, there are endless pieces on Zara we’ve got our eyes on (if you saw our basket, it would almost be embarrassing), but out of all of it, there are seven trends we’ve noticed the brand doing *particularly* well. This should help us whittle down our shopping lists to the best of the best. And considering they're also some of the biggest trends going into summer 2022, the list below can help prepare your wardrobes.

So what's on the menu? Well, there are great items for the transitional weather were experiencing right now, such as a knitted co-ord. (Yep, if you haven't gotten one, get one.) Bright blazers are also a highlight and will instantly update your basic jeans-and-T-shirt combination for the season ahead. That or clash them with a pair of wide-leg trousers, of which Zara has some of the finest on the high street. Throw in beaded handbags and the versatile shoe staple that fashion people never tire of, and Zara’s hero pieces have sell-out written all over them. And sell out we know they inevitably will.
