Zara Pieces for Spring

April showers are in sight, but they don’t have us feeling down this year. Why? Because they mean we’re that much closer to being able to wear Zara’s spring collection, which is chock-full of all the skirts, dresses, blouses, kitten heels and spring handbags our hearts desire. With a little help from our trusty PureWow editors’ recommendations, we created the ultimate shopping list designed to get you closer to building your dream spring capsule wardrobe. Enjoy shopping the 34 best spring pieces from Zara you’ll want to wear all season long, from affordable picks that include everyday basics and staple denim to a gorgeous wedding guest dress in the “It” shade of the year.

PureWow Senior Food Editor Katherine Gillen is in search of one wardrobe essential this spring: jeans. “I need more denim like I need a hole in my head, but ever since I saw a woman wearing full-length wide-leg jeans at my train stop, I’ve had them on the brain,” she says. “These fit the bill, and I like that they're mid-rise instead of the usual high-waist thing.”

Oops, Zara did it again…another wrinkled fabric takes center stage. This midi dress is the ideal pick for the minimalist at heart, featuring a sleeveless design, V-neckline and a picture-perfect belt. Before you ask…yes, the dress has pockets.

“I'm pretty sure I wore a balloon dress to my 9th grade homecoming dance, so seeing this style come back is so fun,” says PureWow Commerce Editor Olivia Dubyak. “I love the sleek simplicity of this dress, especially as a minimalist. It has class with a splash of sultry, thanks to the open back.” Dress it up with a strappy heel for a romantic date night outfit or opt for a casual pair of flip flops for a vacation dinner on the coastline.

Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw and frolic about the city in this button-up poplin shirt. The cotton, collared shirt is equipped with long, turned-up sleeves in a light blue. For the full Sex and the Cityeffect, throw on a belt to cinch you in at the waist.

These mom shorts have a high waist that’ll keep you feeling secure around your midriff and extra length and fabric around the thighs, so there’s no chafing, tugging or squeezing when this denim is on. They’re constructed with 99 percent cotton and one percent elastane, so the shorts will have a little bit of stretch, and they’re available in three additional fades, including a true blue.

Set aside your oversize blazers for the spring season and select a fitted silhouette in its place. This Zara blazer blends traditional and modern details together, like a lapel collar, striking shoulder pads and pocket flaps. Whether you style yours with trousers or cut-off shorts, this sharp blazer will elevate your outfit.

If you’ve been dreaming about the Bottega Venetta Sardine bag, then you’ll want to get your hands on this bucket bag from Zara ASAP because it features a cool, metal handle that reminds us of the designer stunner. And you can even wear it as a crossbody, thanks to the removable crossbody strap.

Between the wind gusts and spring showers, there’s plenty of unpredictable weather we need to protect ourselves from. This utilitarian bomber is made of a waxed fabric that will ensure that we’re ready for whatever the forecast predicts, and we can only imagine how soft its quilted interior is, too.

Last year was all about the denim maxi skirt, but in 2024 we’re embracing shorter lengths. This skort is comfy and cute, offering the sense of security and comfortability you get from shorts and the fashion-forward look of a skirt. According to Zara, the blue washes run large—so we suggest you size down for a true-to-size fit—and the white wash reportedly runs small.

Gingham is back, baby! This sweet, ‘60s-inspired halter top has a wrap design and dainty tie at the side of the waist we can’t wait to show off at the next Saturday BBQ. Plus, the open-back design will keep you cool while you play games with the family in the backyard.

We’ll always be partial to a belted shirtdress, and this blue and white striped button-down beauty takes the cake. Chic and sophisticated, this versatile number will make you feel put-together for your day of activities. Whether you’re running a million-and-one errands or simply heading into the office, there’s nothing you can’t tackle in this. Oh, and did we mention that it has a stretchy, elastic waistband and pockets?

Take a quick dip in this sleek one-piece swimsuit. The crisscross spaghetti strap back design and the V-neckline spice up what would otherwise be another little black swimsuit. Rather than the use of cut-outs, this bathing suit incorporates a semi-sheer tulle fabric below the bust and above the waistline for extra allure.

You can never own enough basics, especially when it comes to white tank tops. This ribbed tee is made from 100 percent cotton, so it’ll be soft, breathable and cool on a warm day. Wear it with an intricate mini skirt, grunge it up with some cargo pants or use it as a layering base. The options are endless.

It’s time to store away our winter boots and start thinking about sandals. This leather pair is the ultimate sandal to carry you through the spring and summer season. It’s refined, chic and will complement both casual and fancy outfits—we’ll chalk that up to its intricate crossed straps and core colorways.

Between the slimming ankle cut and the comforting high-waist design, there’s a lot to love about this pair of flattering mom jeans. It’s designed to fit relaxed throughout the waist and thighs, tapering just below the knees into a skinny-er, straight leg. The jeans should feel like they have some extra stretch, thanks to the cotton and elastane blend.

Back to basics, this mock neck top is oozing effortless sophistication. The 95 percent cotton and five percent elastane provide a super soft and flexible feel, and the sleeveless design is just what we need when the spring sun decides to show its face. It comes in an onslaught of neutral colorways, and there’s even a bright pink for a pop of color.

Casual yet dashing, this cotton frock is fashioned with a wrinkled effect that looks similar to pleating, and it’s safe to say, this may be one of the few times we prefer a wrinkled dress. It has a thick, adjustable tie that cinches at the smallest part of your waist, creating the look of an hourglass shape.

The men’s section at Zara has some of the best sweater finds. Case in point: this textured knit that uses a wool thread in its blend that’ll keep you warm on those cool spring nights. It features a classic crewneck and is ribbed along the trims. Drape it over your shoulders when the weather’s unpredictable or share it with your partner if you’re feeling generous.

Tuck a crisp Oxford shirt into a pair of blue jeans for a classy, everyday ensemble, or wear it with black trousers for an easy work outfit. (The collared shirt can also double as a darling cover-up post dip in the pool.) Reader be warned: Zara notes that this style runs large, so we recommend you take that into consideration before selecting your size.

No, we’re still not over a satin skirt. It has an elegant drape and pairs well with nearly everything imaginable, from a combat boot to a chunky sweater to a bathing suit. This one has a high-waist fit, but because of the elastic waistband, you can easily shimmy it down your hips if you want a low-waist look.

It’s the season of the trench, people! Lucky for us, Zara makes the ultimate coat equipped with a belt, lapel collar, double-breasted buttons and pockets in either a khaki or beige color. If you want to rock yours right, there are a few rules for wearing a trench coat that you’ll want to follow, but with the help of PureWow Senior Director of Special Projects & Royals, Rachel Bowie, you’ll nail it in no time.

Forget sweatpants; we want to live in these flowy pants all season long. They’re casual, cool and breezy. Not to mention, oh-so comfy for a few reasons. For one, they have a straight-leg fit, so they’ll sit relaxed along your legs and pool around your ankles. And there’s an adjustable drawstring and elastic waist that’ll stretch with your body throughout the day, so you never have to feel uncomfortable. Lastly, they’re made with lyocell and viscose fabrics, which give them that silk-like, soft and lustrous finish.

ICYDK, statement earrings are one of the eight pieces of jewelry you should own by the time you’re 40. We’re setting our sights on these gold stunners from Zara that are constructed of 99 percent zinc and one percent brass. Quite large, these metal earrings have a butterfly backing and boast an irregular circular shape and an interesting, beveled texture that commands a room. Prepare for lots of compliments.

Spice up your GNO with this sexy tie top. While you won’t be able to wear a bra underneath without it showing, you can substitute it with a lace bralette or opt for sticky boobs. We like how the long sleeves balance out the glimpse of skin, and, if you look closely, you’ll notice that there are small slits along the wrist, adding to the blouse’s dainty aesthetic.

What’s pretty, pink and oh-so cozy? This knit number from Zara, of course. Crafted from a blend of wool and alpaca and boosting a relaxed style, you'll be reaching for this transitional layer all spring and summer long. Pair it with a slim fit tee or tank top underneath since the bow tie closures aren't exactly meant for keeping you warm.

In search of a cute pair of ballet flats with straps? Zara’s leather flats are it. The Mary Jane style is timeless and easy to wear, whether you pair them with shorts or a printed sundress. Most importantly, these won’t slip off because they have buckled straps that will keep your foot nice and secure every step of the way (literally). 

We’re obsessed with the asymmetrical sleeves on this cotton T-shirt. There’s some ruching along the side of the delicate blouse, which will help conceal any insecurities you may have in your stomach area, and it comes in a couple core colors besides this classic black. Imagine how sophisticated it’ll look tucked into a pair of trousers.

“My mom owns a compact black top handle bag that she bought on a trip in Italy when she was in her 20s that looks nearly identical to this piece from Zara,” says Stephanie Meraz, associate fashion commerce editor at PureWow. “I’ve been secretly wishing she hands it down to me one day, but until then, I’m going to copy her iconic style with this city bag.” Don’t be fooled by the bag’s small dimensions. It has a roomy interior that’s divided into two compartments, as well as an interior zippered pocket, so fitting the essentials is no hard feat.

This past fall, Meraz foresaw the return of the cuffed hem denim trend, so it was only a matter of time until Zara came out with their rendition. Channeling the easy-going wash of our favorite pair of a baby blues, these cuffed cotton jeans have a high cuff and a relaxed, straight-leg fit that we’re all about.

Go on, indulge in a pair of oversize statement sunglasses. With 100 percent UV protection and a cat eye, acetate frame, your eyes will not only look good, they’ll receive the protection they need from the sun.

As we learned from Abby Hepworth, fashion editor at PureWow, if you buy into one spring trend, make it cherry red. This midi dress makes for an eye-catching formal option for an anniversary dinner or spring wedding. The sides are fashioned with the most striking tie closures, giving you a tasteful show of skin just beneath your arms. Alexa, queue “The Lady in Red.”

Beyoncé kicked off cowboy-core, and the easiest way to embrace the western-inspired fashion trend is by accessorizing. Zara’s brown belt is constructed with diamond-shaped leather pieces and jewel appliqués that satisfies our Wild West craving. That silver metal buckle was enough to sell us, alone.

Slip on this neutral ribbed dress and Birkenstock slides for a cozy outfit to wear to the farmers market this weekend. Aside from the exposed shoulder, this dress is cut in a round neck style and loose fit that still does a good job of flattering your lines and curves. An under $40 buy, wash it in the delicate cycle after wearing to keep it looking (and smelling) good as new.

Who says flip-flops must be flat? Give yourself a little boost this season with some strappy shoes that feature a 1.8-inch heel that will still feel comfortable and easy to walk in. As our friends at Editorialist predict, the animal print phenomenon is fully revived, so this faux-croc is totally en vogue.
