Zara releases a trendy new drop and we proceeded to lose it over the mind-blowingly cool (and affordable) pieces. Such is the series of events that occurs, without fail, when any of us peruse Zara’s new arrivals section. On this particular occasion, the Z really brought their A-game, dropping a piece that hits the nail on the head with this spring’s major tie-dye trend—and the reactions from Team Who What Wear ended up all over our Slack channel.
It all started when one of our editors Allyson posted about a story she was writing on a new pair of jeans from the brand. Immediately, the rest of the team fixated on the tie-dye sweatshirt the model has styled alongside the jeans. You might be wondering why it was a sweatshirt (relatively boring as far as fashion goes) and not, say, a bag or shoes that was the subject of our excitement. Let me explain. Between the neutral colors and toned-down print, the crewneck comes off as surprisingly wearable for being part of such an intimidating trend as tie-dye. This, coupled with its $40 price tag proved to be the recipe for cult fandom. Did I mention the sweatshirt had yet to actually be shoppable on Zara’s site? Consider us hooked.
