What a 54-Year-Old Is Buying From Zara for Spring

Melissa Meyers is a Los Angeles–based influencer with a focus on beauty, style, travel, and wellness. Her blog, The Glow Girl, aims to empower women to embrace the best version of themselves, age gracefully, and cultivate a glow from the inside out. She also happens to be 54 years old and has a penchant for masterfully styling Zara. Below, hear from Meyers on her favorite pieces for spring and see how she mixes them with her existing wardrobe separates.

The styles this spring are a blast from the past, which makes shopping so much fun, especially as a 54-year-old lifestyle blogger living in Los Angeles. All of the must-have staples are both sophisticated and cheeky with nods to the best of fashion over the decades including polka dots, pleated skirts, high-waisted jeans, lace tops, leopard, and kitten heels.

These gorgeous pieces mix nicely with so many things in my existing wardrobe and keep me reminiscing throughout the day when I wear them. I always love to shop at Zara to keep up with all the latest style trends that give me a designer look for less. Below are some of my fave picks for this spring!

With all the high-waisted styles this year, this cropped T-shirt with its bottom-wrap detail adds some extra style to the basic white tee and works well with everything from skirts to jeans.

This adorable look has a 1950s midi-length silhouette that is super trendy and has been seen on so many street style rock stars this season! Wear with your favorite sneakers for a more casual cool look. Note: This skirt runs small. I went up a size.

The leopard-print trend isn't going anywhere this spring. Wear with a cami and a buttoned linen blazer and you are set from day to night.

This trend is borrowed from the '70s and looks great when worn with a fitted bottom. Pair with a great pair of high-waisted skinny jeans to balance out the look.

A high-waisted polka dot and pleated skirt covers several of this season's trends, and this one is reminiscent of the high-brow look worn by Julia Roberts in the movie Pretty Woman.
