Unless you were signed up for the brand's email newsletter, you may've gone all day without hearing about Zara's summer sale. But lucky for you, here's the tip: The much-anticipated online sale has kicked off as of 10 p.m. ET June 19, and officially arrived at Zara's in-store locations June 20. And seriously, days, hours, sometimes even minutes can matter when it comes to a giant Zara sale, because select pieces are selling out online fast. There's no telling when the sale will be over, too; a promotional email simply noted "while supplies last."
Which may not be long at all — the deals are that good. Case in point: this Textured Tube Dress. Originally only $25.90 — a steal from the get-go — the essential piece is discounted to $15.99. It should come as no surprise that there's only one size left in stock.
Looking for those wardrobe-completing pieces instead? Start with Zara's suiting — or, more specifically, its diverse selection of chic blazers; because even as the beginning of summer slowly turns the temperatures up, the power of a good blazer seems to fight back. This season, you'll see the piece paired with everything from slip dresses to coordinating shorts. Prepare in advance by picking up one of the sale jackets made from a more breathable material, like this trendy belted blazer constructed from a linen blend. (Even better, it's discounted to $59.99 from $89.90.)
For a less insulated yet still layered look, pick up Zara's 100 percent linen jacket. Also marked down to $59.99 from $89.90, the breezy piece is open and airy — ideal for when you want more coverage without completely overheating. The natural fabric also lends itself perfectly to the piece's bohemian aesthetic; you could wear this with a sundress or denim shorts, and use it to relax any piece slightly too formal for where you want to wear it.
