The Zara sale will start any moment now, but we find the best way to approach sales shopping is to think carefully about the pieces that will be trending over the next 12 months. What will be the 2019 version of the printed kimono, say? Or the next it Zara coat? There are certain trends and pieces that are set to be real success stories in 2019—animal print, strappy sandals and knitted skirts are continuing into the New Year and are set to become even more popular. Then there are some new trends added to the mix. Beige is set to be the key colour for next season, and we're really into the pearl accessories starting to filter into the new-in section.
Keep scrolling to discover the six items that everyone will want to buy from Zara in 2019.
1. Belted Coats
There is always one hero coat in Zara every year, and in 2019 we are willing to bet it will be the oversized belted coat, which you can find in olive, grey and a chestnut colour.
One of the stand-out trends for spring summer 2019 is beige, which is to be worn head-to-toe, layering oatmeal, biscuit, blush and off-white shades. Zara's block-heel leather boots are the perfect place to start on this styling move.
3. Pearl Jewellery
In 2019, pearl jewellery is going to transition from a micro-trend to one that's all over the high street. Brands like Alighieri, Timeless Pearly and Anni Lu have been making us all want to be a girl with pearl earrings, but if you don't want to invest in this trend, Zara has statement pairs for £13.
4. More Animal Print
You'd be forgiven for thinking that we have already reached peak animal print, however, the trend will continue well into 2019, and as ever Zara is already all over it. We are loving the below leopard-print jumper the most.
5. Strappy Sandals
Zara's strappy sandals have been a real hit in 2018, and this is another item that is going to continue to be a success story for the high street giant in 2019. We are loving the burgundy strappy cage heels.
6. Knitted Midi Skirts
January and February is a time for hibernating, and Zara is helping us do this in style with its knitted co-ords. Plus, you can wear the knitted midis in spring with sandals and a white T-shirt.
