Zara’s new in page is a relaxed dresser’s dream – here are 15 pieces we love

Zara’s new in page is a relaxed dresser’s dream – here are 15 pieces we love

The new in page of Zara is full of comfortable, stylish and relaxed clothing – exactly what we need post-lockdown 


Lockdown changed us in more ways then we think.

The way we approach work and home life have altered, the way we see the world has transformed and the way we dress has shifted.

Before Covid-19, much of our wardrobe was structured, because life was too. Work and play were planned and executed with exact precision. When we were forced to stay inside, we dropped the controlled facade. We wore loungewear with a laptop perched on our lap. We wore gym clothes when we journeyed on our only excursion outside of the house.

We yearned for comfort because everything around us was so very uncomfortable.

However, wearing loungewear for the rest of our lives would make our sartorial existence very boring and it seems Zara have taken heed of our collective musings.

Their new in page is a relaxed dresser’s dream. Flowing dresses, satin shirts, comfy culottes and even airy jeans are now current. And for those of us who loved the ease of lockdown fashion but want to remain stylish, these pieces couldn’t have come at a better time.

Our top pick is the black flounce dress, complete with a flattering v-neck and pockets. Pair with the oversized leather clutch and orange tie strap sandals for ultimate relaxed chic.

Comfort has never looked so good.
