Here are 5 classic pieces with a twist that we love from Zara

Looking for some classic items with an interesting twist? Zara is filled with them but here are five we love 

Who doesn’t love a classic?

From movies to books to meals, you can’t go wrong with a tried and tested formula. When it comes to fashion, classic never goes out of style. And as we begin to shop more consciously, classic is the preferred route.

However, sometimes we want some excitement from our sartorial choices.

Zara does classic with a twist better than any other brand on the high street, and right now, there are five pieces on our list.

The limited-edition mini blazer dress comes in its usual staple shape, but the cut-out waist gives it just the right amount of sex appeal. While the faux leather trench coat is a transitional piece that will look just as good over an LBD as it will a white tee, jeans and sneakers.

Why not go for Zara’s track sole models that will add an edge to even the most feminine outfits when choosing ankle boots? A white shirt is a wardrobe must-have, but the option below’s cinched design below adds something special to an otherwise standard option.

Finally, make your jeans wide and workwear inspired. The 1970s marine jeans are an ode to nostalgic masculine dressing but will look superb when paired with killer platform heels.

Limited edition mini blazer dress, €79.95

Faux leather trench coat, €59.95 

Mid-heel ankle boots with track soles, €39.95

Gathered shirt, €39.95 at Zara

ZW Premium 70’s work wear denim marine jeans, €49.95
