Comfort, warmth and impeccable style! Nearly the whole of Zara’s fall/winter 2014-2015 collection speaks those three words loud and clear. The Spanish retailer has us falling in love with the looser, warmer, more boyish styles that intrigue us to no end. We are enthralled with the use of flared denims and cozy knits while the selection of coats does much in terms of protecting our plaid print clad bodies from the harshness of the frosty winter. We have many months still before we see any hint of spring and Zara’s making sure we are made quite comfortable in our endless wait for warmer days.
The chill of the season should not scare us away from fashion, however. Dominated with sleek professional designs for both work and play, we will have a wardrobe fit for the best of them with these lovely selections sported by Karolin Wolter and Caroline Brasch Nielsen.
Mid-waist jeans flared at the bottom are perfectly accented with black pumps while a knit jacket provides all the warmth and utility with its pockets and knee length. What’s a denim collection without the overall look as well? Whether you have added a black or white fitted body-hugging sweater to the mix, you are bound to rock the streets while taking your everyday walks in these fashions.
Simple dark gray knit sweater dresses scream warm comfort, as they cover to just below the knees and let no wind slap against skin at the chest. High crew neck and long sleeves create the finishing touches while the dress can be accented with a black and white herringbone knit coat.
Gray slacks and a larger cashmere sweater do wonders for adding to the professional looking comfort you seek this winter season. The V-neck of the sweater gives the style a bit more character while complimenting the figure. The addition of laced shoes reminiscent of male footwear seems the perfect accent to this washed-out fashion staple. To change around the look while keeping to the comfortable feel of the sweater, baggy leather pants and a large wool coat with belt to cover the body to the knees are just what you need. It gives a bit of personality to the style without taking away from the cosy and relaxed aspect.
Forget the sweatshirt and sweatpants, this look gives you all the comfort you need in a single color of dark gray, without the added bulkiness. The perfect Sunday morning loungewear!
Last but not least, a Zara fall collection simply would not be complete without its coats. We are simply in love with the smooth professional double-breasted or draped designs that have us thinking the next while of snow-capped mountains and icy roads won’t be so bad so long as we have the right fashion to endure it. The focus is on efficiency and comfort, which the collection delivers without a doubt. It may not be the most fun to be out there, but at least we can conquer this season with stylish comfort when we’re not hiding away in the warmth of our hearths…
