Zara - The Best Bits

I have such a love hate relationship with Zara. On the one hand it has some of the best fashion on the high street, but on the other the customer service can be so infuriating! The extra long check out queues, the tiny fitting rooms, the messy shop floors, ....all drive me crazy! Yet it's still not enough to keep me from coming back! 

Here are some of my favourite pieces at the moment; you can click on any of the images for links to the website! Below are a few suggestions on how I would like to style them. 

The Camel Coat - I love a high neck on a coat so I love this style. If a coat doesn't have a high neck I feel it can look really bear without a scarf. 

The Flower Print Midi Dress - I'm not a huge fan of print but I made an exception for this dress. I love the shape of this dress but I feel its slightly out of season so I'm hoping I wear mine more next summer. The one that is linked is slightly different but I think it's actually nicer. 

Red Boots - I've wanted red boots for some time now, so I'm still trying to decide between these two. I love velvet but I feel the others may be more durable and practical. I love the idea of styling them with a scarf from the tweed project see here, my camel coat and jeans. 

Navy Velvet Jacket - I just love the look of this jacket.  Navy and velvet are two of my favourite things this season. It's a little similar to the Maje navy velvet bomer jacket but a fraction of the price. I think it would perfect alternative to the puffer jacket. 

Check Blazer - I've already spotted this all over Instagram but I'm in love - I'm blazer obsessed in case you didn't notice! I love the idea of styling it with all black, all black and the red boots, or with blue jeans and a black tee. 

Cream and Navy Chunky Knits - I love chunky knits for this time of the year. These two look great and I love the idea in theory of styling them with a skirt,  but being realistic I don't think thats a look that will suit the average shape (if that exists;))! I think chunky knits work best with skinny jeans and boots. 

Camel Cashmere - I love cashmere jumpers, I really like the way Zara styled it with the white tee and jeans. Alternatively I love camel and grey together. A word of warning - cashmere is almost impossible to keep (see my blog post on how best to look after it)

The Blazer Dress - I can see this dress being styled so many different ways and suiting a lot of different shapes. You could try it with or without tights or wearing boots or stilettos.
