Let’s face it: a new year needs to be welcomed in a good style. However, all fashionistas know that such a sentence may be also applied to our everyday life, meaning that being fashionable could be seen as a daily duty. Most of the time, however, dressing up is expensive both in terms of money and time. That’s why Zara’s 2015 evening collection can be the best and cheapest way to pave the way for a daily fashionable lifestyle. Our favorite Spanish retailer once again manages to triumph when it comes to finding affordable and cool alternatives to the season’s runway trends.
Let’s start off with the palette: for this evening collection Zara strictly features a strong palette of dark colors, at times interrupted by one of these winter’s main trends – sequins. Almost every evening or holiday collection out there embraces sequins this or that way, from Free People’s Christmas lookbook to Violeta by Mango’s holiday line-up. Anyways, Zara also includes a few bright red pieces in its latest collection to create a nice diversity, pieces that look basically perfect for any kind of New Year’s Eve party.
Besides sequined dresses, Zara’s evening 2015 collection also shows cool mannish tailored suits and tuxedo blazers, which are meant to be combined both with a pair of bell-bottom evening pants or a contrasting uber-feminine mini dress. Moreover, the ‘tuxedo blazer trend’ is indeed a very timeless investment and a stylish wardrobe staple, which will keep you warm from morning to night while also adding a modern spin to your outfits.
Speaking of pants, Zara seems to be smitten with the huge 2015 evening pants trend, which features both high-waist trousers and wide-leg options with a distinctive Seventies attitude. Made of a slightly shimmering velvet fabric, Zara’s evening pants promise to create a flattering look that will be perfect for practically any body shape. However, if you have a petite figure, you may want to pair them with another huge trend: chunky boots. Zara’s version of the trend features black tight ankle boots, which not only will look perfect with the brand’s evening pants, but also with the simple black A-line fluid skirts, at times spiced up with lace embroideries and sensual front or side slits.
Sheer lace fabrics embellish also Zara’s tops and shirts, giving us another good version of the season’s runway trends. Lingerie dresses, off-shoulder lace tops and plunging necklines take the collection to a more sensual level, overloading our whishlists with a handful of new items to buy.
Crop tops, peplum tops and bomber jackets may be regarded as the ‘party-girl’ items of the collection and will give you a good chance to celebrate your body during any kind of holiday event you will ever attend. Furthermore, in order to create the perfect trendy look, you may also pair these pieces with an au naturel makeup look or a wavy hairdo, recreating the highly sophisticated Seventies look.
