ZARA SUMMER CAPSULE WARDROBE
Hey everyone and welcome back to Until Wednesday. It's me (Georgie) back again this Wednesday for another post.
Today I am going to be helping those of you who want to achieve a capsule wardrobe this Summer. To clarify, I'm going to show you how to fill your wardrobe with staple clothing items that never go out of fashion and that can be easily mixed and matched due to the simplicity in color and design.
However, all the clothing items I will show you are from Zara because I honestly think that it's the best high street store for getting great quality clothing for a very reasonable price.
There may be some things which I have missed out but I am basing this off of what I would have in my personal wardrobe.
Lets get started!
Shorts are super easy going and a clear staple for any summer wardrobe. There are so many different styles of shorts in ZARA however I picked out a couple of my favourites that I felt would last for years rather than statement pieces.
PAPER BAG BERMUDA SHORTS - £19.99
These shorts are ideal for a staple wardrobe item this summer. Not only are they on trend but I feel that they could be worn summer after summer. I picked these ones out because I Love anything high waisted and I think they are super elegant and classy.
MOM-FIT BERMUDA SHORTS - £19.99
In a similar fit, I found these denim shorts which I feel are a summer must have. ZARA had plenty of options for denim shorts however I liked these ones in particular because of the vintage look of them and once again the high waisted fit.
I think that a maxi dress is one of those items of clothing where you can just throw it on and look like you have made much more effort that you probably have.
'SPECIAL GARMENT' STRAPPY DRESS - £25.99
This maxi dress is super classy and timeless. I think that is would last a long time as I don't see it as a piece for one particular age. I love the straps as I think it is really elegant.
LONG RIBBED DRESS - £19.99
This dress is probably more suited to beach wear however I really like the simplicity of the design which is probably what makes it a great staple item. Its very clean looking and chic with the stripes. I love how ZARA have styled this look.
Once again, this is for a staple wardrobe so I have picked two swimsuits that are very simplistic. If you are going on holiday, then ZARA have some beautiful swimwear and also have options for if you want a more statement swimsuit.
TEXTURED SWIMSUIT - £25.99
I really like the strappy detail on this bathing suit and I feel that the shape would be super flattering.
V-NECK TEXURED WEAVE BIKINI TOP
You can't go wrong with a plain white bikini so I found this one from ZARA which is super simple.
I have been wearing strappy tops or vests with everything at the moment therefore I had to include it in my summer capsule wardrobe.
STRAPPY TOP - £5.99
This is so simplistic however as I said I have been wearing this style of top ALL THE TIME. I don't think you can go wrong with something like this and it will be in your wardrobe for years to come.
STRAPPY TOP - £9.99
Once again this is super simple but will go with so many things in your wardrobe. If you fancy something a bit more dressy or showing off your tan, this is probably a better option for you.
Z1975 VINTAGE CULOTTE JEANS - £25.00
I have found that I prefer culotte or wide leg jeans so much more to skinny jeans in the past few months and they are much more suitable for summer. These may not be for everyone but I love these ones shown above with a statement belt and a strappy top. I think the price is so reasonable as well.
CULOTTE JEANS WITH BELT - £29.99
I love this style once again but I like how these ones have a slightly different type of denim and I also love how the belt matches the fabric of the denim. These are so easy to wear and can be matched with so much.
JEANS HIGH WAIST CULOTTE LILAC - £29.99
SHOCKER I've included some colour (HAHAHA). I don't really wear colour myself apart from the occasional pop but I do think this is a subtle way of adding colour into your staple items. I think this bubblegum pink colour is super cute and perfect for the season and will probably stay in your wardrobe for a while.
DENIM DRESS/ PINAFORE
I think that denim dresses are so cute and look like you've put loads of effort into an outfit. They go with so much. For example, a turtle neck top, a basic tee or they can just be worn by themselves.
AUTHENTIC DENIM STRAPPY DRESS - £29.99
I love the shape of this one, it's so flattering! I think that the buttons are a really nice edition and the slight vintage tones to the denim.
AUTHENTIC DENIM DRESS - £29.99
Once again, I like the vintage look to this dress. If you want something that you don't have to pair with a tee then this is a great option. (SIDE NOTE: I envy this models hair so much!)
AUTHENTIC DENIM PINAFORE DRESS - £29.99
Another great staple item is a pinafore. This looks great with a tee underneath and I love wearing them myself. They are also nice to wear in winter with a jumper so it's a great piece for all year round.
I have really got into my denim skirts this year. In particular midi or vintage style denim skirts I have been loving.
DENIM MIDI SKIRT - £25.99
I tried this on in ZARA the other day and loved it! It's much more flattering that you would think. I did find a dupe for it in Affleck's for £10 so if you live in Manchester there's a little secret for you haha.
DENIM MINI SKIRT WITH SEAM DETAIL - £29.99
I really want this skirt myself to be honest. I've never liked A-Line shapes but I think this works really well with this skirt and with the high waist.
I feel that everyone needs a pair of sandals for summer. ZARA have so many different options for sandals so I have selected a few that I feel would last a long time.
FAUX PATENT LEATHER BLOCK-HEEL SANDALS - £25.99
These are a great option for if you are going out or going for a meal on holiday. It's always nice to have a dressier pair of sandals.
The following pairs are more wedge style of slip on sandals:
PLAITED FLATFORM SANDALS - £49.99
FLAT STUDDED SANDALS - £29.99
CONTRAST WEDGES - £29.99
PLATFROM POLKA DOT WEDGES - £39.99
I love to have a pair of relaxed trousers in my wardrobe for the evening whether it's going for cocktails with friends or going for a meal on holiday.
STRIPED TROSUES - £29.99
I really like the stripes on this pair of trousers and how the stripes contrast on the waist section. I think these are so easy to wear and would be a great addition to anyones summer wardrobe.
FLOWING TROUSERS - £29.99
These white trousers are super classy and really flattering. My sister has just bought these herself and in real life the quality is amazing. They look so expensive.
As I said before, I am not really into skinny jeans anymore and prefer a lose fit. ZARA have some lovely mom jeans and these are my two favourites that I found.
Z1975 MOM JEANS - £25.99
I think everyone should have a pair or jeans like this is their wardrobe, they are so easy to throw on and go with pretty much anything.
NEW STRAIGHT WHITE JEANS - £29.99
I've never really liked white jeans however I think they look so much classier in this mom jeans style. They would look great with a strappy vest and a pair of wedges.
In terms of accessories, a sun hat is a great staple item for summer. I love how big this one is and it's so classy. I much prefer a floppy style to the stiff fabric sun hats.
WIDE-BRIM SUNHAT - £25.99
This is such a basic item but it can be worn with pretty much anything. They look great with shorts or maybe a sundress.
WHITE PLIMSOLS - £25.99
CHUNKY SOLE SNEAKERS - £49.99
I think a sundress is a perfect day-to-night outfit. Once again, you can throw on a sundress and look like you've been much more effort with your outfit.
FLORAL CAMISOLE DRESS - £29.99
I think this one is so pretty with the strappy look and the lace detailing around the bottom hem of the dress.
White T-Shirts are so easy to wear. I personally love wearing them tucked into a pair of jeans or shorts. This is one of the most important staple items for any season.
BASIC ASYMMETRIC T-SHIRT - £5.99
I like the loose fit of this tee as it would look great slightly tucked in but a bit pulled out with a pair of mom jeans.
RIB T-SHIRT - £5.99
I have a few of these t-shirts from ZARA and I love the fit and the slightly higher neckline. They're so comfortable and soft.
