The ZARA Experience

Sponsored

I'm sure most of us are familiar with the brand ZARA, having walked past the stores located at prominent shopping malls in and outside of Singapore.

Many people have the idea that ZARA caters to the mature crowd and working adults who have a higher spending power, but this Spanish fashion retailer also carries trendy yet affordable pieces that are suitable for the young and fashion-forward!

Their wide range of clothing and accessories left Sean and I spoilt for choice. We had a hard time deciding on our outfits because everything looked so good! It was such an enjoyable shopping experience, and definitely a good bonding time for the both of us!

On him:
Short Sleeved Denim Shirt - $49.90
Dark Denim Shorts - $59.90
Leather Driving Shoes - $139

On me:
White Crop Top - $49.90
Short Dungarees in Light Denim - $69.90
Two-tone Sandals with Gold Ware - $59.90

ZARA is big on denim this season, so we decided to incorporate it into our first outfit.

Sean has never tried the denim-on-denim look before, therefore I picked out this ensemble for him - it looks great I say! This pair of leather shoes in the perfect shade of vintage brown was a love at first sight, and goes very well with anything!

I was never into dungarees, so it comes as a surprise that I'm actually hooked on this playful and fun ensemble picked by Sean! What a refreshing change, don't you think? Wear it with a casual tee or a basic crop like I did. The two-tone sandals with gold ware add an interesting twist to the whole look too.

On him:
White Linen Shirt - $69.90
Printed Shorts - $69.90
Laser-Cut Espadrilles in Navy - $79.90

On me:
White Pleated Top - $69.90
Ethnic Print Trousers - $69.90
Orange Clutch - $39.90

Knowing Sean, he goes for linen shirts (besides singlets) because he finds them really comfortable. Worn with printed shorts, this is an ideal ensemble for a weekend date. Complete the look with a pair of navy espadrilles - an outfit does not necessarily have to be colour coordinated! ;)

I have taken a liking to pants, and Sean knows that they are a recent favourite of mine! Why I avoided them at all costs in the past remains a mystery to me. Here, I'm wearing a gorgeous pair with a simple top for a casual yet smart get up.

On him:
Printed Shirt in Red - $55.90
Light Denim Shorts - $59.90
Brown Zipped Clutch - $89.90
Leather Driving Shoes in Brown - $139

On me:
White Halter Top - $45.90
Striped Trousers - $55.90
White Bag - $69.90
Flat Leather Sandals in Black - $55.90

Sean had already bought this particular shirt in another colour, but that didn't stop me from choosing it again in red this time. I totally understand why he wants this piece as it is so comfortable (a really important factor!) and versatile. He wears it to work with a pair of tailored pants, and this time, he dresses down with a pair of denim shorts. He's also been looking for a simple brown clutch for his laptop (yes it fits his MacBook!) and other documents, so this classy piece can't be timelier. Oh, spot the same leather shoes from the first outfit? It's obviously a staple. ;)

For this outfit that Sean picked for me, there's absolutely nothing I don't like. He knows I have a weakness for this halter neck top because it accentuates the collar bones, and the back details are a plus! I foresee myself pairing it with other bottoms repeatedly: denim shorts, printed shorts, cigarette pants, basic mini skirts, printed bodycon skirts, flowy maxis... I'm also digging the trousers with drawstring waist, and the best part is it comes with pockets! Versatile sandals are the way to go, and I'm pleasantly surprised this pair doesn't hurt my feet!

I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to be part of this campaign with Sean! Getting him involved is a whole lot more fun than doing it by myself, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire shopping experience with ZARA!

Whether you're a student, an unemployed graduate, a working adult, or a parent, you will definitely find something suitable for you, given their wide variety of selections at affordable prices!

I hope you will come join me at the store reopening at ION Orchard on 7 May 2015, 10AM - 12PM, and have a first glimpse of the bigger and better outlet! Bring your other half, and probably pick something out for each other too? :)
