Zara TRF In the Evening Holiday 2013 Lookbook displays a varied collection with some surprise combos, as well as the usual chic and glam options for evening wear.
Black and midnight blue are the overall color notes with plenty of glitter and lace for that feminine party look, but also some new twists on old favorites. A long-sleeved angora top has lacy see-through panels at the shoulders, and a black see-through top has sparkly white spots. A bluish-grey top has eye-catching patches of glitter and looks great worn over a black rollneck with ultra-slim jeans. A slinky black top with three-quarter sleeves is slashed down the front in an elongated vee, only to end in a row of demure buttons, sending out subtle mixed messages. Another top has long chiffon sleeves and a demure neckline, but reveals the midriff. Tops are worn with sleek black pants or a swinging gathered mini-skirt, in a soft black fabric or even studded leather.
The really bold pairing of separates is a sporty t-shirt with number nine in kingfisher blue, and blue and white stripes at the hem and sleeves, teamed with a miniskirt and minimal sandals with high heels. More of the teasing ambiguity at which this Spanish brand excels.
Dresses come in mini and maxi length, and are pretty and girly. A curvy black minidress has a lace yoke and sleeves, once again combining old-fashioned black lace with an ultra-modern silhouette. Another skimpy mini has a deep vee neck and shoulder straps, then swirls out into a galaxy of gauzy double-layered glitter. The equally glitzy full-length gown has a deep split with a flirty underskirt. There are also a couple of jackets to team with jeans: sharp shiny black leather either with zips, or scattered with seasonal snowflake motifs.
For figure-flattering yet easy-to-wear chic that will really make an impact on the party scene, Zara have definitely produced the goods this holiday season.
