Zara Just Dropped a Ton of Elevated Basics—31 I’m Seconds Away From Buying

It’s true—I check Zara on a daily basis. But usually, when I click on the brand’s app or type into my web browser, it’s to see what new trends it’s decided to back since I last looked. My latest checkup, though, resulted in a very different discovery. Instead of buzzy, of-the-moment pieces taking over Zara’s new-in section, that space was solely dedicated to hyper-chic and expensive-looking basics this week, a majority of which I’m dangerously close to buying. 

With fall on the horizon, Zara is getting us ready to refresh and upgrade our basics, from bodysuits, long-sleeve tees, and sweaters to leather pants, jeans, and easy dresses. Even better, none of the above cost more than $150, even with plenty of cashmere, faux-leather, and wool pieces included in the mix. Clearly, I’m already convinced that a basics haul is in my future. Scroll down to see if one is in yours too. 

If I didn’t know better, I’d assume this cashmere-blend tank top was at least $100. 

I’m smitten with this shade of red lately. It makes the chicest statement every time. 

This dress went viral on TikTok in baby pink, but I’m biased toward the classic black version. 

Thanks to Prada, pointed-toe slingbacks are having a moment right now. 

The perfect tank top doesn’t exist—oh, wait. 

I’ve never seen a striped tee that I didn’t want. 

This cozy knit will go with everything in your wardrobe. 

If it has an open back, I want it, period. 

I love how the color of this tank takes it from a low-key basic to a high-key one. 

Belts don’t get enough attention if you ask me. 

How does something so simple look so chic and luxurious? Asking for a friend. 

This dress will sell out by September. 

Kendall Jenner just wore trousers just like these. 

If you’re bored of super-plain white tees. 

Relaxed denim was huge on the fall/winter 2022 runways. 

Every French girl’s go-to pumps are only $70 at Zara RN. 

I’m living for this cutout top.

Take your trench-coat collection up a notch with this faux-leather version. 

This bodysuit will get so much wear. 

I can tell how soft this top is through my computer screen.

These wine-colored trousers are too good to pass up. 

I’m such a sucker for soft things.

Adding a chic belt to a skirt or pair of trousers can be a game changer. 

I have at least four miniskirts already, yet I’m already planning outfits to wear with this one. 

It was love at first sight. 

Not your average long-sleeve tee. 

It’s a need, not a want. 

The prettiest of all the fall cocktail dresses I’ve spotted thus far.

This soft shade of pink is making the rounds in fashion for fall. 

Do it—I dare you.

Done and done.
