11 pieces from Zara’s new in page for the woman who likes to keep things simple

Not into the bold prints and colours of summer fashion? Well, Zara’s new in page is providing for the woman who likes to keep it simple


Summer dressing can be unpleasant for those who enjoy the simple things in life.

There’s a lot of floral, which is as groundbreaking in summer as it is in spring. There’s a lot of colour and festival gear.

And there’s a lot of boho dreaming and daisies in hair.

For the woman who enjoys clean lines and fresh shapes, it’s a hazardous time. How does one dress in a minimal fashion when the world around you is offering maximalism on a plate.

In the current world climate, it might just be time to strip things back. No big events are forcing us to dress in an avant-garde fashion, meaning our summer plans will be quite plain and uncomplicated – and our sartorial choices will be too.

Fluid and uncomplicated

Though it may sound unexciting, simple style is sensuality personified. A plain t-shirt and jeans can be just as sexy as a mini dress. Plus, there is something about an austere dress that screams confidence. This type of clothing doesn’t need to shout, it quietly makes a superb statement.

Zara is addressing these clean wants and needs. Its new in section is a cache of fluid dresses, uncomplicated shapes and gorgeous creations born to be worn repeatedly. Our top picks are the white satin dress and culotte jeans, both of which can be accessorised with the orange strappy heeled sandals.

There is something easy about the clothes on show. Comfort is paramount yet style is not hindered.

In troubled times, ease is very much welcome.

And a simple summer is just what we need, in both fashion and life.
