8 Essential Trends Zara Has Already Nailed for Summer

There may be other places we turn to for investment buys and extra-special pieces, but for of-the-moment trends and instant wardrobe refreshes, it has to be Zara. Don’t ask us how, but it always seems to be ahead of the season’s biggest trends, which is impressive and honestly unusual for a high-street brand. It’s part of the reason we (and you) love it so much. 

Right now, there are endless pieces on Zara we’ve got our eyes on (if you saw our basket, it would almost be embarrassing), but out of all of it, there are seven trends we’ve noticed the brand doing *particularly* well. This should help us whittle down our shopping lists to the best of the best. And considering they're also some of the biggest trends going into summer 2022, the list below can help prepare your wardrobes.

So what's on the menu? Well, there are great items for the transitional weather were experiencing right now, such as a knitted co-ord. (Yep, if you haven't gotten one, get one.) Bright blazers are also a highlight and will instantly update your basic jeans-and-T-shirt combination for the season ahead. That or clash them with a pair of wide-leg trousers, of which Zara has some of the finest on the high street. Throw in beaded handbags and the versatile shoe staple that fashion people never tire of, and Zara’s hero pieces have sell-out written all over them. And sell out we know they inevitably will.

Keep scrolling to shop the 25 best Zara items for 2022 across eight impressive trend categories.

1. CO-ORDS

The most beautiful shade of blue. 

I love the convenience of co-ords—so easy. 

I’d wear this layered with a racer-neck vest on home soil…

2. CROCHET

The dreamiest colour combination. 

Make like the model, and pair this with some slouchy jeans for Y2K cool. 

Not all crochet has to be chunky. 

3. BEADED BAGS

This amazing handbag also comes in a trending tangerine colourway.

The perfect wedding guest handbag. Heck, the perfect bridal handbag. 

The easiest way to make your outfits more fun. 

4. WHITE DRESSES

Cut-outs are another key trend from the S/S 22 runways. 

I’m sold on the word “puff-sleeve” alone. 

So beautiful—wear this with everything from clogs and trainers to heeled sandals and cowboy boots. 

5. WIDE-LEG TROUSERS

How fabulous is this entire ensemble? 

Try these if you prefer neutral colour palettes. 

Tick off two trends in one with wide-leg trousers worn with a crochet crop top (as per the above). 

6. TAN SANDALS

Okay, so tan sandals aren’t technically a trend, but they’re so prevalent in Zara’s new collection they had to make an appearance. 

Although classic, the snaffle detail feels very on-trend right now, too. 

Chain embellishments have migrated from handbags to sandals this season. 

7. PATCHWORK

Another major trend spotted on the 2022 runways, Zara is one of the first high-street brands to do patchwork (and do it well for that matter). 

Patchwork + ruffles = blouse heaven. 

Green and tan makes for a beautiful colour pairing. 

8. LINEN BLAZERS

I just know this blazer is going to fly. 

Try clashing this blazer with a cobalt dress underneath. That or neutralise it with khaki and navy. 

Such a pretty wedding guest suit option.
