Good Evening Munchkins!
Today I will be sharing with you some bits and bobs I’ve found whilst trying to recreate a look I found on the very beautiful Zara Larsson. This was taken earlier this month, I believe, when she featured on James Corden’s Late Late Show in America. By far, this is the hardest look to recreate despite looking the simplest, so I have a few options and variations depending on which parts of the look you like or what you feel most comfortable with!
So this is the picture I found:
So as you can see, Zara opted for a very simple monochrome look, containing the strappy heels and peg leg/cigarette trousers (I always get them confused!) which are very on trend at the moment. I personally love these trousers on her; they look formal yet still slightly relaxed and the black waistband at the top really helps to accentuate her little waist. This suits her figure so well – her stylist should be very happy with him/herself!
You will also be able to see the very prominent and original print on her top, which I found so difficult to find alternatives of, hence why I chose two! The first one is from Wear All retailing for £12, which I hadn’t heard of prior to this blog post, so let me know if it’s trustworthy if you have bought from there before! I thought some of you may like this because it still has a very bold print but has the same straight neckline, meaning it’s not too flashy, but it can boost your boobs if that’s what you desire. The second is from River Island and costs £30, but I actually prefer the pattern of this one. I personally think it’s a little bit more flirty and the slightly scooped neckline is very much on trend right now. It also has spaghetti straps, meaning they can easily be hidden, just like Zara’s! This has to be down to personal preference because I couldn’t find an exact dupe!
Again, I had a bit of a nightmare finding the exact bottoms, which surprised me actually considering how on-trend they are! The first pair are from Topshop (originally Adidas) and retail for £26. These are very much leggings as opposed to trousers, but if you want that sporty-looking stripe down the side of the leg, this may be your way forward. I’m sure this is still totally fine to wear with either of the tops, but if you would prefer something much simpler, the peg leg trousers on the right may be for you. Also from Topshop, these cost £28 and have a much more relaxed fit. The differences from the image of Zara is that it hasn’t got the white stripe and it has a big, loose-tied bow at the front, which I know isn’t everyone’s cup of tear, so just bare this in mind! Again, this is down to personal preference, but I do think both pairs of trousers match both the crop tops really well. It’s okay to be a little bit adventurous sometimes!
Finally, the shoes! The only thing I could definitely decide on! These are from New Look and cost £25.99, though they have a few variations depending on how many straps around the toes you want. I chose the one with 3 or 4 straps on each side because it looks like a few thick straps instead of one due to being able to see the skin in between slightly. These are a pretty statement pair of heels that I think would easily be worn time and time again, either to dress up a pair of trousers like in this instance or with a cocktail dress. The gold buckle also smartens it up quiet a lot! From previous wear, I can tell you that those ankle straps are very supporting, make walking in heels a lot easier and are definitely more reassuring to know that they won’t fall off!
And that’s it! I hope you have enjoyed this blog post – I loved writing it and finding all the items for you! Although I wouldn’t always opt for a look like this, I really do like it on her and the combination of sophistication yet relaxation with the heels and loose-fitting trousers. Who knows, maybe I can finally step out of my comfort zone?! Let me know what you think of this look and which variations you’ve gone for!
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you Sunday,
