Best Zara party dresses



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.

The holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, NYE, and more) are basically here. And even though you've had more than enough time to prepare, I'm betting that like me, you've waited till the very last minute to even think about your holiday party attire. As a quick panic came over my body the other night thinking about the festivities my family and I have planned and how little I have to wear, I did what I always do: I headed to Zara.

Okay, party dresses, party dresses, party dresses, I thought to myself as I frantically opened up tab after tab of anything sequin, silk, or leopard print. Curious to see how many dresses I had actually clicked on, I counted each and every one and realized it was a whopping 63. Yes, I do have a lot of time on my hands, thank you for asking. If you, too, are a Zara lover and last-minute shopper, I figured your shopping methods might be similar to mine, which is why I'm here to relieve you of your misery.
