The best picks from the Zara summer sale

The summer sales are well and truly underway, with numerous brands offering massive discounts across fashion, beauty and homeware. The Zara sale is one we always get excited about, mainly because of the sheer volume of stock that gets reduced, often with a hefty mark down.

Wondering what to buy from the Zara sale this year? There’s a huge array to choose from, including holiday-ready gear such as shorts and summer dresses, as well as great workwear picks, including expensive-looking trousers and blazers.

Whatever you buy, make sure you really love it, and aren’t just getting carried away by the discount. Also, it’s good to think about how many wears you’ll get out of it (eco campaigners recommend the ’30 wears’ test, where you decide whether you can see yourself wearing this item 30 times).

If you are looking for a few wardrobe additions then this is a good time to buy, but sorting through the Zara website can be a minefield, which is why we’ve done the sifting for you and rounded up our top sale picks.
