31 Special Zara Basics I'd Wear Throughout 2021

There have been many occasions in which I've needed something last minute so I just impulse-order it from Zara. It's great for that. But these days, without many trips and events to shop for, I'm perusing Zara for basics more than anything else. The beauty of Zara basics is that they have a wide variety of both "boring" (in a good way) and special options. I prefer the latter, so let's discuss.

2021 is probably still going to be weird but one thing is for sure—we're all going to need basics to wear. This is always the case. Zara excels at designing basics with a twist. By that, I mean that an item may have pretty jeweled buttons, or an interesting shape, or a cool asymmetrical detail—anything that sets it apart from all the millions of other basics on the market. This attention to detail is part of what makes Zara so very popular, and why I plan on wearing its basics throughout 2021. Scroll if you want to join me.
