With the holiday season upon us, you may be thinking about what you should be gifting others rather than what you want to purchase for yourself. You generous thing! While your spirit is in the right place, let me tell you that when it comes to the offering at Zara, my advice is to start thinking me, myself, and I. But why? It turns out the selection is just that good, and it would be a shame to let these pieces pass you buy, because spoiler alert: They are going fast and surely won’t be around come 2019. As a sidenote, after perusing this roundup, may we suggest our genius gift guide under $15? Something’s got to give, and as we have discussed, it’s not your Zara budget! And to make the most of that money, I will also offer our story on how to save money at the brand according to 123 Zara employees. Now scroll down with my full permission to shop for your self. Trust me—it's just the right thing to do.
Zara just doubled down on the military trend by dropping a huge capsule collection. The brand is hyping this release, so it's sure to sell out.
Just like the model, I'm throwing my head back and yelling, "Screw it! I'm going to buy the coat." It also works as a dress, so.
Zara has this belt in leopard too, but it got cut in favor of this significantly cooler tiger print.
The price on this pouch makes it a no-brainer. Plus, the retailer has it in black if you want to play it safe.
I can promise you one thing: If you buy this dress, you will get compliments. Not everyone is willing to wear such a statement color, but I know you are.
Cult-favorite designer Alessandra Rich is way into the long cardigan dress. Follow her lead, but get the Zara version.
Plaid will always come back in style, and this blazer looks as luxe as it gets.
A little leopard, if you will.
Okay, just a little bit more. This dress is darling. Don't sleep.
Faux is the only way to go, and this stole makes it easy.
Another look-at-me outfit for the boldest of party girls.
Well, aren't you fabulous?
If you missed the memo, the snake boot trend is on fire right now. These are really all you need.
Join me in #SlimeWatch2018.
You know what is great about this coat? It has brown and black in the plaid, meaning you can easily wear it with either color. Hello, versatility.
I was debating whether this top was a little too weird for this roundup but then decided that was ultimately why it should make the cut. You too can look like a chic space alien at the club.
Just a solid choice—nothing to see here.
Sure, there are sparklier picks in this story, but we guarantee you this plush hoodie will get tons of wear.
Pants so pretty I bought two pairs.
Just to balance out all the baby party bags in the mix.
Making a mental note to take an Insta pic styled with a parted-hair earring peep.
Is it too early to start making NYE plans? First and foremost, they involve this bodysuit.
We're messing with fuchsia. Are you?
So, this ravishing little number is coming soon, but we know you've got your eye on it.
Surprise! It's reversible.
I've seen this stunning number in person, and it looks like premium quality.
Copying this whole 'fit in 3, 2, 1…
Neon: the alternative to slime you've got to try if you're trying to keep up with the trend, kids. For $20, why not?
If I owned this skirt, I'd throw my arms in the air like I just don't care too.
Only the bold will dare.
Oh, sweet '80s goodness.
Flexing on that fuchsia. Again.
Ganni is one of the coolest brands out there right now, and it's endorsing colored jeans too.
These are odd, and that's why I like them.
A pearl belt is just what the outfit doctor ordered.
Sexy, slinky, check!
Name a more joyful color than marigold.
Your old going-out dresses just got jealous.
Oh, the drama!
Hike, but make it fashion.
