Zara x Purple Magazine Is Definitely Not For The Faint Of Heart

·4 min read

After a year spent mostly indoors, I think it’s officially time to have some fun with fashion again. And where’s a better place to shop for some cool new clothes than Zara? Never one to shy away from a trend or bold look, Zara has collaborated with Purple Magazine to bring you their coolest-ever collection to date. Yes, I plan on rocking these pieces on my first real night out of the summer.

Think of the collaboration (called the Zara Purple Amour collection) as the epitome of ravecore, but with a fashionable twist. The first drop includes a series of accessories and ready-to-wear pieces that come in black, white and a few shades of neon pink, blue and green.

Browse the assortment of bright yellow cut-out blazers and pleated skirts to get you in the mood, but don’t expect any tennis whites here: This collection is not preppy in the slightest.

Of course, pretty much everything is priced under $100—and there are more pieces on the way if the website is any indication. Plus, the pieces that are currently in stock are basically just super-cool updates on the things you probably already own, so even though they seem scary-bold, I promise you can style them up and make them work. The hoop earrings included in the collection, for instance, are a neon twist on the classic versions you’ve had since you were a teen.

The key to wearing such bright pieces is to style them with basics from your collection—but if you want to go bold in head to toe Purple Amour, I won’t stop you! Try wearing the cutout black bodysuit with a pair of high-waisted denim shorts and sneakers. Or, pair the zip-front crop top under one of those cropped half-sweaters from last season. You don’t need to wear all-over neon—you just need to pick your pieces wisely.

With that, read on to shop 10 of our top must-have pieces from the Zara Purple Amour collection and be sure to keep an eye on other cute pieces on the site marked “Coming Soon.”

Basic T-Shirt

Who said basic was a bad thing? This T-shirt comes in the brightest shade of lime green, so I would go so far as to say that it’s not really “basic” at all, despite the simple name.
