Zara Just Dropped a Ton of Elevated Basics—31 I'm Seconds Away From Buying

It's true—I check Zara on a daily basis. But usually, when I click on the brand's app or type into my web browser, it's to see what new trends it's decided to back since I last looked. My latest checkup, though, resulted in a very different discovery. Instead of buzzy, of-the-moment pieces taking over Zara's new-in section, that space was solely dedicated to hyper-chic and expensive-looking basics this week, a majority of which I'm dangerously close to buying. 

With fall on the horizon, Zara is getting us ready to refresh and upgrade our basics, from bodysuits, long-sleeve tees, and sweaters to leather pants, jeans, and easy dresses. Even better, none of the above cost more than $150, even with plenty of cashmere, faux-leather, and wool pieces included in the mix. Clearly, I'm already convinced that a basics haul is in my future. Scroll down to see if one is in yours too.
