These limited edition pieces from Zara are perfect for girls who want to have fun

From a pink flapper-style dress to an exquisite one-sleeve crop top in the perfect shade of teal, Zara’s “Getting Ready” limited edition collection has a selection of cool separates perfect for women looking for fun occasion wear this summer.

Not everyone could pull off this cheeky little tiered number (I certainly couldn’t), but what a fantastic piece to bring away on holiday? Try wearing it with a pair of flat tan sandals if you want to dilute the frothiness of the piece. Or if you’d prefer to look unapologetically girlish, go with white heels, as below.

Limited edition ruffled tulle skirt, €39.95 

This tropical print mini skirt with matching Bardot top looks beautifully flamboyant; exactly how most of us like to look on at least one evening when holidaying in an exotic location. The pina colada colours are the perfect palette for summer.

Limited edition printed skirt, €29.95; and top, €29.95

Palazzo pants are my staple in summer. They’re easy to wear (you don’t need a tan) plus they look sophisticated and a little bit Old Hollywood I always think. This polka dot pair (with pockets!) will take you from beach to brunch and beyond.

Polka dot wide-leg trousers, €39.95; limited edition frilled top, €29.95
