As you likely know, every year there are certain Zara items that become extremely popular. In fact, some pieces even earn dedicated Instagram accounts and rack up waiting lists.
So what is destined to be 2018's equivalent to the popular Zara kimono? The "Trending Now" section of the retailer's website is always a good indication of what's selling that month, and the trends ahead are clear front-runners for the new season (and are much more than passing fads). Here we break down the trends that Zara is really into this year—from snakeskin print to the leading colour for autumn/winter. Keep scrolling to see (and shop) the best Zara items we've seen so far from the latest collection.
1. Snake Print
Snakeskin is shedding its tacky reputation, and Zara has a lot to do with it thanks to its printed shoes, trousers, shirts and dresses. It actually looks best when worn all at once (see Tamu's outfit).
We're not wishing autumn away, but there's so many amazing winter dresses dropping online. This patchwork dress has seen a lot of love on Instagram already, we predict it's going to be one of the next It items. Team with trainers and a bead bag, or wear with a blazer and knee high boots.
Zara's shoe department at present feels like an homage to Carrie Bradshaw's iconic stiletto collection. Who What Wear UK's editor Isabel has been wearing her gold pair (that have sold out online, but still in store) ever since she bought them.
