Zara is having their big post-holiday sale. Now I know that for many of us of a certain age the idea of picking up sale items on Zara or any other uber-trendy sites is hard to envision. The information on each item is sketchy – I don’t know what size to wear – this stuff is simply too avant garde and young for me.
My advice is don’t pass these sales by! A sale allows you to try different sizes and determine what really does fit. It takes some trial and error but it’s worth it in the long run. I like to use sales to take a chance on a shape I would never try otherwise (I’ll show you a few in just a minute.) For me, perusing the sales at Saks, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom is pretty boring. The prices are good, yes, but all that’s left are pretty traditional garb in black and beige.
Let me show some examples and give you ideas for shopping Zara (and, by extension, other similar sites.
Experiment with the unconventional – These jumpsuits are perfect examples of that. I’m down with the checked one. I know it would require some kind of belting and probably a top underneath, but if I don’t try this now, when will I try it? The other jumpsuit is very pretty – possibly perfect for spring and it appears to have a forgiving shape.
Fresh, new tops are always good – and often more forgiving in size and shape. I’ve picked a few kinds of tops here – a little lace top in a blindingly wonderful yellow and two long shirts that could be VERY versatile. Think of the latter under a long cardigan sweater or with breezy wide-legged pants in spring/fall.
Pick up generation-defying accessories – OK, so I might want to try a little knit hat with ears! But in general Zara and other sites have a great selection of accessories (so many blanket scarves). I’ve just picked a few that I like. You should take a look!
And below are a few others I could envision women of a certain age trying out. Step out of your comfort zone and give one a try!
