If there’s one person who loves Zara more than I do, it’s my mother. If she’s not excitedly browsing their website, she’s perusing the racks IRL or texting me photos of items she’s seen on Instagram, proclaiming, “You need to include this in a story!” At 71, she remains an ardent Zara devotee, and the Spanish brand, with its grand variety of styles and trends, no doubt fuels her love of fashion. And it’s safe to say the apple didn’t fall far from the tree!
While my mom and I have slightly different style aesthetics—I tend to favor neutral, fashion-forward basics, and she leans into colors, prints, and embellishments—we do see eye to eye on certain styles, as you’ll see below.
So with a desire to add some new pieces to our wardrobes, we took a little shopping excursion to Zara, and surprisingly we both gravitated toward a handful of spring/summer trends we’re excited to wear this season. From satin fabrics to fashion-forward orange hues, keep scrolling to see what trends my mother and I are buying, wearing, and loving this season.
