31 Special Zara Basics I’d Wear Throughout 2021

There have been many occasions in which I’ve needed something last minute so I just impulse-order it from Zara. It’s great for that. But these days, without many trips and events to shop for, I’m perusing Zara for basics more than anything else. The beauty of Zara basics is that they have a wide variety of both “boring” (in a good way) and special options. I prefer the latter, so let’s discuss.

2021 is probably still going to be weird but one thing is for sure—we’re all going to need basics to wear. This is always the case. Zara excels at designing basics with a twist. By that, I mean that an item may have pretty jeweled buttons, or an interesting shape, or a cool asymmetrical detail—anything that sets it apart from all the millions of other basics on the market. This attention to detail is part of what makes Zara so very popular, and why I plan on wearing its basics throughout 2021. Scroll if you want to join me.

Shrug sweaters are a trend that I hope continues well into 2021.

I strongly advise getting these before everyone else does.

I’m always on the hunt for cute fancy sweatshirts.

I predict that shackets will continue to rule in 2021.

They’re special because they’re as perfect as jeans get.

This is in the running to be my new everyday winter bag.

Miniskirts are going to be very popular next year.

A sweater you’ll wear for years to come.

This is my idea of a basic, feel free to disagree.

So cute in such a simple way.

These are already sold out in black, so you should probably hurry.

I love a mixed metal situation.

Just think of all the outfit possibilities.

It’s never too early to think about that transition to spring.
