20 Zara Outfits That Will Earn You Instant Compliments

It’s no secret that you cruise over to Zara on the regular to scoop up those forward yet affordable must-haves to fill out your wardrobe. We’re right there with you. We actually also turn to the mega retailer for unique styling inspiration. Because really, it’s not just those cool jeans or that sleek pair of booties that catch our eyes but how the Zara model is wearing said items. In fact, we’ve been inspired to test out these unique looks IRL, which in turn earned us sartorial compliments from our crew. So with that, we’re showcasing 20 must-try Zara outfits below featuring interesting styling tricks, and we shopped out the hero piece in each look as well.

Take a monochromatic look to the next level by layering strands of necklaces over a buttoned-up blouse.

Denim on denim is always a good idea—especially if you go for forward fits like a loose blouse and straight-leg jeans.

Colorful leggings are all the rage right now. Don’t be afraid to coordinate them with a dress for something different.

Elevate loose jeans and a tee with a third piece like a corduroy coat. Sleek white booties complete the look.

You can always count on Zara to uncover fresh ways to style skinnies. Here, it’s all about opting for alt denim like this snakeskin pair with a turtleneck tucked in and a single necklace.

A bright coat pops against a muted-color suit.

A violet knit is statement-making on its own, but adding unique accessories like angular sunglasses with a gold chain amps up the look even more.

Mixing textures is one of the simplest ways to stand out, like pairing a silk skirt and top with a heavier wool coat.

Yes, you can dress up shorts by going for a mock-neck knit, half-tucked for a flattering silhouette.

Pair two It athleisure looks together—an oversize graphic sweatshirt and bike shorts—for the ultimate chill look.

Low-slung trousers feel incredibly current paired with a wrap top and simple sandals.

While it may seem simple, adding a utility belt to a flouncy shirtdress brings just the right amount of edge.

A leather skirt is cool and effortless with a coordinating black long-sleeve top and interesting add-ons.

Ditch your standard dress for a night out and try a streamlined suit. If the jacket buttons up high enough like this style, you can skip a top and treat the blazer like a shirt.

Zara features expert layering ideas to achieve those high-concept looks, like this vibe with the checked blazer, asymmetrical knit, double necklaces, wide-leg trousers, and flat sandals.

A longline blazer is one of the must-have pieces for 2019. For a no-fail vibe, wear one with loose jeans, a tucked-in tee, a pendant necklace, and strappy sandals.

Live in trousers during your 9-to-5 life? Give them a high-fashion twist with an oversize turtleneck and a long blouse layered underneath to play with proportions.

While we’re used to seeing mesh tights and socks, leggings feel fresh with a shirtdress and flat sandals.

A casual sweatshirt and high-top sneakers worn with a more formal silk skirt is so wrong it’s right for a chill night out.

Play with contrast with a vibrant pencil skirt paired with a black crop top and sandals.
