This Zara Dress Is Trending, and Some People Really, Really Hate It

Zara launched its A/W 18 collection last week, and just five days later, one of its pieces is already trending. The £80 brown minidress—which has a revealing lace-up front, puffed sleeves and ruched fabric—is certainly going to divide crowds. In our Facebook shopping group, one of our readers asked, "My flatmate and sister hate this. … But should I buy it?!" The comments ranged from "Love!" to "Omg, this is a noughties nightmare—sorry." This has already become an "Instagram dress," as influencers such as Rikke Krefting and Isabella Thordsen have been wearing this chocolate-coloured mini. Brown is one of the key colours for autumn, and minidresses are set to make a big comeback come September.
