Year 2020 has brought many changes in the way we lead our lives, specifically in regards to our fashion consumption habits. Our approach to fashion has changed. Several trend studies have revealed that consumers are now focusing more on buying basics and classics over trendy pieces, and rightly so. There aren’t many places we have to go or events we need to attend so investing in to the trendy pieces seem to be a logically and financially unsound decision. Do you agree?

On the other hand, buying good quality basic pieces could be a better decision. Basics are the staples in the wardrobe that you can wear in multiple ways (Instagram is filled with influencers showing you how to wear a cardigan/sweater/coat/blazer/shirt in 5 different ways. It is time you start utilising that content to your advantage) and for many years (if invested into quality pieces) without worrying about them going out of style.

Winters are almost here and Zara has come out with some spectacular pieces that you can think about including in your winter wardrobe. However, if you already have similar pieces we encourage you to give this list a skip because we believe in conscious consumerism and so should you 🙂

Here is the list of our favourite basic pieces.


Turtleneck tops are extremely versatile and definitely a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe. They will make you feel snug and warm along with making you look elegant and stylish. This particular item needs no explanation in our opinion. Zara at the moment is offering multiple styles of turtleneck tops. Do check them out if you have been considering buying them.


Every woman should have a good quality cashmere sweater. It looks simple, elegant and stylish all at once. It also makes for a good layering piece. It can be styled perfectly in multiple ways with denim, trousers, skirts or dresses. It will also keep you extremely warm.


Overshirts are this season’s favourite trend and we can already tell that it is going to stick around for long. With its ease of styling and layering combined with its level of comfort it is already our favourite piece to wear this winter season. Whether you are lounging around, working from home, running an errand or meeting up with family/friends, overshirt will become your favourite piece to throw on your outfit.


If  you cannot handle winters, these jackets will become your best friend. They are lightweight, good quality, stylish and will keep you extremely warm. Zara offers multiple styles in multiple colours (short, long or gilet) for everyone to choose from.


We know they are priced little high but look at it as an investment. Long coats will never go out of style, they can be styled with pretty much every outfit and they will always make you look chic. Zara’s long coats are generally of higher quality and if stored carefully, these coats can last you a lifetime.

Let us know in the comment section below which of the above item/items you already own and which item will you be incorporating in your wardrobe. Also, tell us what other topics would you like us to write about. We would love to hear from you.

See you next time, 

Until next, Stay safe, stay stylish!
