These 23 Zara Items Will Spice Up My Summer Basics

Although it sometimes feels like I have nothing to wear, I'll admit that my wardrobe consists of the classic foundations—e.g., good denim, basic tees, etc. All that's missing is some added spice, aka statement-making pieces that can elevate my staples so that they feel extra special and give me some more styling variety. Below, I present my current shopping list of cool and fun pieces that I'm eyeing up at Zara right now. I've turned towards bright saturated colours, such as pinks, oranges and rust reds, as well as vintage-inspired stripes and scarf prints. I'm also excited about the texture and proportion play, as below you'll find dramatic maxi skirts, oversized shirts and unusual cut-out detailing to add a point of interest. Keep scrolling to see the buys that are adding some much-needed flavour to my spring wardrobe.

This could function as a swimsuit cover-up, but if you're not afraid of risks, it could also function as a cool top.

Can you tell romantic dresses are all I want for spring?

Khaki trousers to make all my The Row dreams come true.

Yes, this must be worn as a set.

Spring is all about pretty jackets like this.

I bet you don't have a dress like this.

I'm so into the elegant round neckline of this blazer—it feels like I should be drinking espresso at a Parisian café.
