Zara Is Celebrating Over 40s Style in the Perfect Way

Today Zara launched a new section on its website called Timeless, which celebrates ageless style. But instead of imposing a certain idea of how a 40-something should dress, this ûber-cool editorial sees classic pieces styled in unexpected and standout ways. Models Malgosia Bela, Kristina de Coninck and Yasmin Warsame wear the key pieces of the season, such as '80s metallics, heritage check jackets and furry detailing, and reflect on what style means to them.

"I prefer myself so much better now than ten years ago or twenty years ago," says model Malgosia Bella. "Obviously it would be nice not to get old and ugly, but the mental process is only for the better. So it's a paradox: more confidence, and you are getting old. But… I kind of like it." Scroll below to see Zara's timeless collection and shop the key pieces.
