I bet many of you are, like myself, getting ready to go to the beach this summer, right? So every time I pack up my outfits, inevitably, there’s always something I wish I had bought for my vacation, but I didn’t. So, therefore, this year, I won’t leave it to the last minute. I went through several items and rounded up what to buy at Zara this week.
When picking my new clothing, I paid particular attention to the materials. Terry cloth, a.k.a. towel material and pointelle, are my choices because they keep you cool on sweltering-hot days. The loose cut of the clothing also helps to feel fresher since there’s space for the air to circulate, and let’s face it, nobody can look chic while puffing and sweating buckets. So, here is my list of Zara items 2021.
Swimsuit with puffy effect
The most important summer essential – the swimsuit. This retro piece is on top of our “what to buy at Zara” list. French girls swear by high-waist bikini because they’re not only perfectly curve-enhancing and waist-defining but also timeless. The puffy effect is just as classic. Ready for that French Riviera vibe? Because we are!
Tie-up silk scarf
Do you remember this 90s iconic trend? Yes, we’re talking about the printed silk scarf. In the words of Dua Lipa, we’re witnessing future nostalgia. But, of course, there’re many ways to wear one, and a top has to be the best option. You have to tie it up around your chest and are all set for your vacation look!
Pointelle knit dress
This long pointelle dress can do it all, and it has to be one of our favourites from Zara’s summer collection 2021. With its round neckline, long sleeves and wavy trims, it’s perfect for your beach day. Moreover, this cotton piece lets the body breathe and is ultimately stylish.
Eye-catching prints? Yes, please. Zara’s vibrant summer 2021 collection has gotten us dreaming of all of the beautiful beaches we can visit! Having one colourful piece in your wardrobe is a must-have and a guaranteed winning look. Style it with your simple white shorts and … Voilà; you got the best of Zara’s beachwear.
This cape dress is here for your effortlessly cool and stylish look this summer. Wear this short dress with a pair of flats, and you’re ready for the beach! The beautiful texture of the fabric has to be what we like the most about this piece. Do you also see the smooth feel of the material just by looking at this picture?
Turbans are making their comeback, and we can’t blame the fashion industry for it. The accessory comes from distant Mesopotamia and was originally worn only by royals. Then later in the 60s, Elizabeth Taylor brought it back to life. Turban is the perfect sun cover and, without a doubt, the coolest summer accessory! To nail this goddess look, Zara has fabulous long dresses that turn heads. So, if you’re looking for a breathtaking look, we suggest this sunset colour outfit.
For all minimalist-lovers, we have selected this cute long sleeve hoodie with ties. Made from terry cloth – towel material, the most hyped trend for summer 2021. This it’s the one Zara item that you need for the relaxing days by the pool. Despite being a rather heavier weight material, it keeps you perfectly cool on the hot summer days.
Hope my “what to buy at Zara” list will help you when getting ready for your vacation!
