Fashionable Fridays: HighStreet Look from Zara

Fashion can hold different meanings for different people. For some it may be identified with uncomfortable clothes and painful high heels. For others it may signify glamour and a lifestyle of luxury. Then there are those who may feel that fashion is a restricted resource only for certain body types. Rather than debate on the validity of such perceptions, I would like to suggest that you try fashion as being something fun and as a mode of self expression. Also contrary to popular belief, fashion doesn't necessarily have to be uncomfortable and expensive.

If you have been following me, particularly on instagram (@amnamusings), you would be aware that I am a fashion enthusiast. I enjoy indulging in the latest trends and dabbling in different styles as a mode of self expression.

Fashion does not need to be associated with high end and expensive brands only, although if you can afford luxury brands, go for it. With that in mind, I thought I would share some affordable high street options on my blog every Friday, as a series of #FashionableFridays. I will choose one brand each Friday and choose an affordable trendy look from that. I know there are people who struggle with finding the right clothes so maybe this would provide some needed outfit inspiration for them. If nothing else, it would at least be a fun read to know the trends.

The first high street brand I have chosen is Zara, because it's everyones favorite store, or at least everyone I know. Zara does follow the fashion runways and comes up with relatively more affordable options in the latest trends.

Currently we also have the Dubai Shopping Festival going on here in Dubai so a lot of things are on sale. Puffy sleeves are still going strong, and denim is a unique fabric for a top so this top would definitely make a statement.

Faux leather pants are also quite the trend lately. The ones that I really liked and bought a few months back from Zara are sold out so these pants are the next best thing.

Since its winters, or at least cooler than usual in Dubai, I would suggest wearing boots with this look. I really like the look of these boots shown below:

Of course if you are some where cooler, like in the UK or Pakistan for example, it would make sense to wear a warm cosy coat over this ensemble. To be honest I don't particularly love the coats on the website right now, but if I had to choose, I would choose this coat because it has  faux fur texture that adds an extra dimension.

Finally add this pearly handbag which introduces a sharp contrast to the edgy pants and boots look and brings the whole look together.

I hope you enjoyed this outfit inspiration from the high street brand Zara. It kind of reminds me of that considerate friend who looks out for you and shares with you all the good stuff she saw in a store. I sincerely hope you perceive this that way also. Thank you so much for reading and hope to see you here again next Friday with another outfit inspiration from another high street brand. Take care!
