First Look! Zara Masters the Art of Boy-Meets-Girl Dressing For May

Zara May Lookbook 2012

With both cool-girl appeal and the prettiest white lace and crochet, Zara's May collection might best be characterized as an exercise in perfect boy-meets-girl dressing. The retailer artfully delivers the best of both worlds: the most feminine and sophisticated kind of separates, like a little lace waistcoat or a ladies-who-lunch tweed jacket, then a slouchy pair of tomboy-fit studded jeans and a menswear-style striped button-down. Zara's Woman collection offers up polished floral prints and silky tropical button-downs, while the TRF line veers into more casual territory with open-weave knits, distressed boyfriend jeans, and tribal-embellished tanks and t-shirts. Read on for our favorite pieces and styling tips, then click through to get a glimpse of every look.

  • If you're looking to get in on the jumpsuit trend, we love the effortless vibe of this version — perfect for dressing up and down all Summer.
  • This open-weave knit would be an ideal piece to layer up on a beachy vacation or throw on with your favorite Summer cutoffs.
  • Try out a statement skirt like this one and balance out the high-impact details with a menswear-inspired button-up.
