When preparing my wardrobe for this fall I can't help but look back at Zara's FW 06. Even though this collection is four years old it still feels still relevant and stylish. As I get older I notice that minimal clean tailoring is becoming more and more attractive to me. I want to look hip, but polished. I love the chic menswear inspired suit and the long romantic maxi dresses. Now if only I could be prancing around Paris with my man and a beautiful fall wardrobe. A girl can dream, right?

Heading back today from Virginia and I can't wait to crawl into my pj's and cuddle on the couch with a blanket, a book and my man! It has been a long week and coming home is always such a treat.

This sort of collection is timeless isn't it? I agree, minimalistic fashion has become more attractive to me as well!

If you told me these images were from 2010, I would be like "wow, they're beautiful." Either way, they're beautiful and the styles are timeless!

It's like style without looking like you are trying too hard.

Michelle Elaine said...

Isn't spending time with your significant other just so damn comforting especially after you've been apart? le sigh!

I'm noticing this about myself too - clean lines, tailored properly, but im also steering away from brights and colors.

AMazing choices! Timeless will always be number one over trendy in my book!!!! I think Zara always does a great god of updating timeless pieces to be fashion forward yet the same clean lines you love about tradition!

Zara's outerwear is always a pure stroke of genius to me. So timeless, and I love the classic use of pattern.

I love these pics. The clothes are classic so while I was scrolling I had no idea they were from '06. It makes me miss Paris oh so much!! The last pic is my favorite. There really is nothing better in life than sitting in a Parisian cafe, sipping espresso, people watching (especially in a fabulous outfit!)

365 Fashion Rehab said...

It is actually amazing that these photos are that "old". I think it shows how the fashion cycles are getting even smaller! It used be about 7 years now it feels like half that. I too, wish I was with my man cruising the streets of Paris. Enjoy your cozy time in your PJs.
Love, A

katy said...

Classic and stunning -- I just bought a similar dress to that first one this month!

jen said...

i want the model's body and her boyfriend and wardrobe and live in paris..is that too much to ask ?

Dina's Days said...

No way, these pictures are 4 years old? That's actually a great idea to look back and see collections even if they are only a few years old. That's why it's always smart to splurge on classic items and save on trendy ones. I bet if I bought one of the pieces featured in this collection like the tuxedo button down 4 years ago, I'd still be wearing it!

Audrey. said...

These photos are so beautiful, OMG.

Bren said...

I remember that Zara campaign, and I had a few of those images saved in my own personal Fall lookbook. Especially that last one!

xoxo,

Chic said...
