Best Zara Dresses Right Now 2023 – 17 Amazing Styles For AW23

Is there anything they can't do?

Last Updated on October 26, 2023

Right now, Zara has hundreds of dresses in stock. To save you the trouble, I’ve looked through them all and shortlisted the best of the bunch right here. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked to recommend a dress for a special occasion, and my reply is always the same. It might seem like the most obvious choice, but there’s a reason why Zara’s are probably the most popular dresses on the planet.

Zara has always been known for its affordability but they also offer beautiful, timeless dresses fit for literally any occasion and this season theirs blow the rest of the high street out of the water. When you’re shopping on the high street, there’s always the risk of turning up somewhere to find someone else in the same outfit. That’s why you have to make it your own with the help of accessories. Never underestimate their power!

But honestly, the risk is totally worth it. You don’t need millions of dresses, just a few really good ones and the choice is almost endless at Zara. If you don’t have the energy to scroll through their huge selection, I don’t blame you. Luckily it’s my job, so I’ve done it for you. I’ve found a number of beautiful dresses from the brand that really stand out, including blazer, metallic, strapless, knitted, sequin, denim and tulle dresses.

Below is our edit of the best Zara dresses you can find right now. Next, read more about the Zara perfumes that smell just like designer fragrances and Zara’s new Halloween collection.

Christmas is coming up, but you don’t have to wear sequins to the office party. I’m a big fan of the blazer dress for a smart look with character, and it’s even better if it’s in a bright hue.

If you do like a little bit of sparkle, opt for this metallic strapless dress. It manages to look sophisticated and simple, despite the silver. Keep your accessories simple; opt for a heeled boot or strappy heel.

It’s not just party dresses here; I love this patchwork midi for an everyday look. The sleeves make it just about warm enough for winter, while the leg-split stops it from being too mumsy. Wear it with an aviator and knee-high boots.

ZW Short Satin Dress, £49.99

I’ve learnt to shop smarter, not harder lately, opting for higher quality fabrics rather than those that won’t last. This limited edition dress is made from satin, which makes that £50 price tag completely worth it. The design won’t go out of style either.

Long Contrast Crochet Knit Dress, £169

You might have noticed crochet knit dresses cropping up more and more, and despite the cold weather, this is definitely still wearable. Team it with high-waisted briefs and a black bra for an intentional take on the naked dress look.

Avoid going overboard with the sequins by opting for a black dress. It’s definitely still a fun party dress, but it’s a little bit cooler than an über-glamorous style.

Minimalists will love this tunic dress. At £25.99, it’s such a bargain. This style tends to fit a little larger than Zara’s other pieces, so if you’re in-between sizes I recommend sizing down.
