Ask any of our Who What Wear fashion editors where they shop for expensive-looking yet affordable items and I can guarantee Zara will be practically everyone's number one choice. The Spanish brand always gets it right when it comes to luxe-looking pieces that are always on-trend.

So now that the temps on my weather app keep rising (hurrah!), I have dresses on my mind, and I've been keen to add a handful of chic options to my Zara cart for the warm-weather season ahead. To get inspired, I asked my fellow Who What Wear editors to share the Zara dresses that they're eyeing right now that are affordable but actually look triple the price. Who doesn't want a luxe-looking outfit? Keep scrolling for the best Zara dresses to get your hands on this season, from minimalist '90s silhouettes to silky fabrics.
