You type in "Zara.com," the page loads, and you're immediately primed to shop. Yes, we know Zara has a magical way of convincing us to pick out a little something new. But part of the site's genius—something we don't acknowledge enough—is that it's not just the clothing that inspire us, it's the way each look is styled.
The fast-fashion retailer has mastered creative, cool, and novel ways of wearing some of fall's biggest trends, and each time we head to the site to browse new arrivals, we're actually inspired to give new ensembles a try, using pieces we actually already own. Whether it's simply a matter of how your jacket hangs or it's fresh ways to mix and match, if you're craving outfit inspiration for the coming months, Zara seems to have exactly what you need.
Read on for a break down of seven styling tricks to steal from Zara this month, and if you want to shop them, you can do that too!
To show off your layering skills, don't be afraid to loosen up your buttons. Letting your sleeves fall open or playing with how your tops are layered allows for your go-to pieces to feel remarkably fresh.
From the runways to the streets of fashion week, we've spotted plenty of slouchy off-the-shoulder spins on your standard jacket. Just partially zip up your item of choice; then adjust so it hangs just off your shoulders.
Instead of your typical tights, give your summer dress an update for fall by styling it with a pair of pants. Try a pair of skinny jeans, or if you're feeling daring, try pants with a bold print.
Even if this season's ballet trend feels a little too feminine for you, it's possible to give it a go. The trick is all about what you wear it with. Pair a romantic, sheer dress over a sweatshirt for an ultra-cool outfit.
Long statement sleeves are one of fall's coolest (though occasionally impractical) trends. Give the look your own spin by letting formal cuffs peek out from underneath a sporty jacket.
Yes, you can keep on rocking crop tops when the temperature dips; the key is layering. Wear your favorite cropped tank with a turtleneck for a cozy, unexpected take on the trend.
Embrace frilly Victorian collars or even this season's zip-up high-neck styles, and show them off by wearing them with a topper that lets what's underneath poke through.
