The Zara Sale Starts Tonight, Here's Everything the College Fashionista Team is Buying

If you’re anything like me, your TikTok For You Page is full of Zara hauls. I’m not complaining though — I’ll happily spend hours of my day watching fellow fashion lovers unbox their latest finds! Luckily for me, these hauls have no end in sight. Yesterday, Zara announced that its twice-yearly sale is just around the corner. And by that, I mean it starts tonight!

There are multiple ways to shop this year’s sale so here’s the nitty-gritty: Zara App users get first dibs on the deals. By downloading the app you’ll gain early access to the sale on Wednesday, June 23 at 8:00 p.m. EST. Next up, are website users with the online sale kicking off an hour later at 9:00 p.m. EST. Lastly, the Zara sale will begin in-store Thursday, June 24 whenever your closest retail location opens. Be warned though! Zara’s fitting rooms are currently closed and lines are expected to be even longer the usual.

That said, I frankly cannot wait to start shopping this year’s Zara sale. I gave myself a bit of a head start by rounding up the items I’ll be adding to my cart tonight and asked the College Fashionista team to do the same. Keep scrolling for our Zara sale must-haves and get ready to act fast — I have a gut feeling these items will sell out quickly!

Jacquard Dress

I am notorious for only wearing black but I’m really trying, okay! I love this dress because of its retro flair, deep v-neck, and cute collar detail. Plus, I can actually picture myself reaching for this color often!

This next one combines all of the things I love into one shoulder bag. Neutral color palette? Check. Zebra Print? Check. Adorable, tiny size but big enough for my essentials? Check. It really ticks all of my boxes!

Box Pleat Jumpsuit Dress

There’s nothing I love more than a LWD in the summer and this one is calling my name. While I’m obsessed with the polo top and tennis-style pleated skirt the best part of this piece has to be the hidden shorts. I mean come on, who doesn’t love a skort moment?

I’ve been into any and all things cottage core lately so this top is the perfect way to try out the trend. I’m planning on styling it with my favorite denim cutoffs, a black shoulder bag, and black platform sandals so the look has a little edge.

Tie-Dye Dress

I know what you’re thinking but tie-dye is *not* just a 2020 trend. It’s back and better than ever in the form of this dress. The unique neckline brings the 2020 print into 2021 with an added flare.
