While we’d love to be the sort of shopper who upgrades her fall wardrobe by thumbing through lookbooks and reviewing iPad pics taken runway-side, we’re (sigh) not that kind of girl. So while we ogled the seventies-cool looks at Altuzarra, Chloé, Zimmermann and Burberry, we also knew that our love would go unrequited — until Zara swooped in with its own iterations. And now those iterations are here.

Zara’s newly released fall collection  includes everything shearling, wide-legged, embroidered and billowing that you could ever want. Here’s how to shop it: Resist the urge to buy in bulk. You want to use these wallet-friendly options to inject hints of the trend into your wardrobe, not look like a walking Zara ad. We’ve boiled the collection down to the eight top buys. Pick a few, sprinkle them throughout your outfits and enjoy looking like a ’70s dream this fall. 

  1. With all the warmth of a natural hide at a breathable length, a short paneled leather skirt ($69.90) is an amazing transitional season piece. Be sure to pair with a skinny turtleneck.SKIRT
  2. Nothing says bohemian gypsy soul quite like some printed velvet trousers ($69.90). Styling tip: Pair it with a solid top and leather shoes for an everyday wearability.
  3. All hail the knitted maxi dress ($69.90). The long skirt echoes those breezy beach sunsets, with a texture perfect for layering.
  4.  An understated tunic with side slits ($89.90) — reminiscent of Ellery’s modern cuts — is the perfect top for work and play, with a high neckline that practically begs for slicked hair or a severe pony.TUNIC
  5. Up your layering game with a faux suede cropped overshirt ($49.90). Have no clue how to wear it? See Zara’s styling for reference. crop
  6.  Ditch summer’s overalls for Zara’s forest-green faux leather dungarees ($49.90) which, when paired with tights and a long-sleeved top, are actually office-friendly. DUNGAREE
  7.  The coat of the season is one with chunky shearling accents. This wool jacket with statement lapels ($99.90) will keep you cozy while still looking stylish.JACKET
  8.  The easiest way to add a dash of seventies style to your look is with a skinny scarf ($9.90). Loop it casually around your neck or leave it long and loose for a shaggy rocker vibe.
