A Fashion Editor Walks Into Zara—These Are the 8 Fall Outfits She Comes Up With

You don’t have to be a Zara expert or a superfan to reap all the benefits of visiting the retailer’s site.  In fact, we’ll even argue that you don’t necessarily have to spend a penny at the retailer in order to find the store helpful. Simply put: A favorite pastime of ours is scouring outfit inspiration from all sources across the internet—Zara’s e-commerce listings not excluded.

The brand’s in-house styling offers a chockful of outfit ideas, but we’ve also found ourselves mentally creating multiple outfits from the latest selection of new arrivals. And while some outfits can be loosely re-created with what we have, we are tempted to purchase it-items like the under-$50 metallic bag our team keeps talking about or the rosette choker that looks fresh off the runway.

If you’re on the hunt for fresh outfits, look no further. The eight creative Zara-approved outfits below are on-trend and shoppable. From office-ready attire to showstopping holiday ensembles, we’ve got all the bases covered. Feel free to copy each look, or shop any key pieces to style them yourself. Here’s to a season of stellar outfits.

Rosettes are a favorite trend amongst Who What Wear editors, and Zara has got plenty of market for you to join in on the fun. A leather jacket, tank, and trousers are a simple outfit but the choker (and striking red heels) pack the punch.

Striped sweaters are a basic staple, but you can liven things up with a trendy denim skirt and metallic slingbacks. 

Instead of throwing your cozy sweaters over a pair of jeans or leggings, try for a sleek maxi skirt instead. You can swap the heels if you’re not one for color, but it does make for a great pop against the grey hues.

Work outfits don’t have to be basic or stiff. If your job allows, pair an oversized poplin shirt and blazer with relaxed jeans to make things more comfortable.

Cozy season is in full swing and this look is perfect for the occasion. The pleated skirt comes at the perfect length to show off the wool sock and loafer combo.

The mini skirt, sweater, and tall boots is an outfit formula the fashion set can’t get enough of. To transition it into the season ahead, opt for a jewel-toned bag and wool coat.

Holiday dressing can get stressful, but Zara always makes it easy for quick (and top-tier) outfit planning. This velvet dress is fit for any formal occasion and pairs beautifully with the metallic bag and embellished heels. 

Life is too short to have boring outerwear. The fur-trimmed jacket works perfectly against simple cargo trousers. And on a chillier day, a knit scarf will come in handy.
