11 Great Zara Finds.

By: Jen Shoop

1 // THIN STRIPED TURTLENECK SWEATER. A Magpie asked me for recs for “thin knits to tuck into trousers and skirts.” This is a great one. I love it in the stripe! Imagine tucked into wide-leg trousers, a silky slip skirt, loose-fit jeans!

2 // SILVER SLINGBACKS. Silver accessories are having a major moment right now. These would be fun with looser fit jeans.

3 // SLIP SKIRT. This is going to be a shock, but I’ve never owned a slip skirt in my life! I am in the market for one this year. I want to pair with chunky knits for texture contrast. This olive green one hits all the right marks, and I LOVE the color.

4 // MINI CITY BAG. This small crossbody is SO fun. Love the knot detail on the straps.

5 // KNIT CARDIGAN. I’m on the waitlist for this beauty. It has a Jenni Kayne / Khaite quality thanks to the silhouette.

6 // STRIPED TOP. The color and style of this top is VERY Veronica Beard. Love it paired with high-waisted olive trousers or bootcut jeans.

7 // SEAMED KNIT SWEATER. Lots of knitwear on this list, but Zara has SUCH great sweaters at reasonable prices. Like, the quality isn’t phenomenal, but you can get high-end looks at a fraction of the price. A great way to try statement silhouettes/details on without a major investment. Does anyone remember the pearl-studded sweater of theirs I bought maybe four years ago? I LOVED it so much, and still have it in my closet! It always gets compliments.

8 // CROPPED KNIT CARDIGAN. Another great basic for the season. Pair with tartan nap dresses, jeans and tees, etc!

9 // KNIT SOCKS. These remind me of the Falke ones I bought and adore!

10 // CHERRY PRINT DRESS. Your little lady needs this! Bonpoint vibes.

11 // AIRPLANE SWEATSHIRT. And your little man needs this! My son loves their prints — so fun. A lot of them have a Keith-Haring-meets-Marimekko vibe that I love.

P.S. You still have time to make this fantastic, easy icebox dessert — summer’s not technically over until the 21st!

P.P.S. Small home and travel improvements.

P.P.P.S. How can you tell when something is good advice?

  1. Hi! I love the look of slingbacks and I see them everywhere RN but the back always falls down – does anyone else have this issue?

    1. Hi! I’ve had that issue in the past and generally avoid slingbacks for that reason…maybe the trick is going a half size down??


    2. Hi Val, I’ve had this same issue with slingbacks as well, but try moleskin! You can get it at Target. I generally get a roll so I can cut strips or whatever size I need. It’s great for any shoes with spots that rub or irritate too.
