17 new pieces from Zara made for those who love minimalistic dressing

Are you a fan of minimalistic dressing? Then these 17 new pieces from Zara will fit into your wardrobe with ease


How did we ever survive without Zara?

From casualwear to wedding guest outfit saviours, Zara is always there for us in our time of sartorial need. For one store, it defies the impossible by appealing to a range of style sensibilities. And this week Zara is made for those who live for minimalism.

Minimalistic fashion is simple. It’s all about clean lines and relaxed shapes. Patterns are a no-go while the clashing of unrelated colours is frowned upon. If you have an affinity for such dressing, then head to Zara as quick as your mule heels can take you.

Our top picks

The cream oversized blazer and matching mini skirt is what 1990s minimalism was made of. It has Rachel from Friends written all over it, and though it may not be office appropriate, it’s the perfect power play move for a night out on the town.

Though minimalism may go hand in hand with muted tones, don’t be afraid of colour once the shape is streamlined. The purple midi dress is the perfect antidote to monotone madness, as is the peachy toned satin dress.

While the wine asymmetric hem midi is the perfect minimalistic wedding outfit. Wear with nude strappy heels and matching pouch bag for an effortless yet sassy look.
