Ivanka Trump Has a Thing for ZARA

...And you can too. Let me start this post by prefacing the fact that my mention of Ivanka Trump has nothing to do with politics. Nothing. 

But what I will draw your eyes to, is the fact that Ivanka has been waltzing the streets of DC wearing ZARA apparel that's modest and affordable. 

I'll be honest with you. ZARA can oftentimes give me a headache. What between the piles of clothing on and around the racks, and the hoards of people shopping at sale time. But, what they do, they do well. Extremely well. I honestly think they're one of the few mass brands who do modest consistently well. So it's no surprise that celebrities are wearing their clothing on a regular basis. 

Here's my take on her recent looks:

 

Look 1: ZARA Checked Shift Dress, $69.90

Pairing a shift dress with knee-high boots further elongates the body to create a long lean look. To mask the low V-neck, I would suggest wearing a black camisole underneath - a super easy and discreet fix. Plus, it'll add another layer of warmth. Finishing the look with a black belt cinches the waist to emphasize an hourglass figure. I have also included a similar style dress below ($89.90), also from ZARA, that provides more coverage.

Look 2: ZARA Top with Fringe, $49.90.

Jewel-toned jade is a hot color for fall. A monochromatic look from head to toe is hard to pull off, but when paired with black accents (shoes, bag, coat), the outfit remains grounded. An easy swap for Ivanka's culottes? A sleek black pencil skirt. That way, the top becomes the focal point. Gorgeous.

Look 3: ZARA Faux Pearl Studded Top, $35.90

We all need basics. And sometimes we need those basics to have just a pop of something special to be able to wear them with a classic bottom. This pearl-studded top is one of those. Girlie and glam, you will instantly up the luxe of your outfit without the need for additional accessories. Even better: It's available in a striped version, off-white, and baby pink too!

Look 4: ZARA Cropped Sweater with Faux Pearls, $59.90

A comfy popover is sure to be your go-to favorite this sweater season, and this cropped pearl-embellished style is the epitome of effortless elegance. Wear it as-is with a black pencil skirt like Ivanka, or layer it with a shirt underneath and an A-line midi with sneaks for a more casual look.

Look 5: ZARA Checked Wrap Style Midi Skirt, $69.90 and ZARA Sweater With Pearly Cuffs, $29.90

Mustard is the must-have yellow-tone for fall. Richer than its summer counterpart, you should be considering it a staple color in your fall wardrobe. Pairing it with a brown-toned checked midi perfectly complements the warmer tones of the skirt. For an extra hit of style, wear with a bright shoe or statement earrings.

Look 6: ZARA Checked Pencil Skirt, $49.90

Checkered anything is practically a staple for fall fashion. This modest midi is as perfect to wear with a colorful turtleneck as it is to wear with a leather bomber. Super versatile.
