Zara has always been a favorite destination of mine. Believe it or not, my favorite pair of black lace-up shoes were purchased there back in 2009! It's this box-textured shoe that my ganny used to call my "roach killers." While we're on that particular wave length, Zara is having one killer sale.
My advice is that you hop your ass right over to their website STAT and get your virtual hands on some goods. Of course, being the budget shopper that I am, I have rounded up the Top 7 picks for men all for under $50.
BOAT NECK SWEATER ($19.99)
This sweater is 76% viscose, 24% polyamide and 100% awesome. This is a staple piece every guy should consider adding into their wardrobe. Being so thin, it is absolutely perfect for those cool summer days that eventually lead into the actual colder months.
This blazer comes in navy and red but you'd be best to be snatch up the latter option. By doing so, you'll stand out for all of the right reasons when dashing through the Meatpacking District to meet up with your friends at Dos Caminos for chips and guac.
LINEN HOUNDSTOOTH BLAZER ($49.99)
Linen is a fairly lightweight material, houndstooth is awesome no matter what and a blazer is always appropriate. What does that mean? Slide the above over your shoulders and be ready for whatever comes your way.
SHIRT WITH FRONT TUCKS ($29.99)
Sure, it looks a little formal but all I keep envisioning is rolling the sleeves up, putting on a pair of tailored shorts and brogues sans socks with maybe a nice watch. Is there such a thing as casual formal? No? Now there is!
TROUSERS WITH CONTRASTING WAIST ($29.99)
Toss out any rules of only wearing white before Labor Day or after Memorial Day. I don't care where those rules came from because these white trousers are flipping dope. I love the idea of pairing them with a slouchy tee and a butt-ton of incredible accessories.
SLIM TROUSERS ($25.99)
Then you have these wonderful slim trousers in a multitude colors like red, yellow and green. Just imagine all of the outfit possibilities with just a few pairs of these! Go ahead. Embrace the wave of color.
RAFFIA HIGH TOP SNEAKERS ($39.99)
Sometimes, just sometimes, you want to leave the fancy shoes at home while longing to still look pulled together, right? These high top sneakers are a solid choice especially when rocking them with a white woven shirt tucked into solid, dark denim that's already been washed so the dye won't bleed onto the shoe too much.
