Public service announcement: Zara is re-issuing its iconic styles from the past decades

Stop everything you're doing, because I have an announcement to make. Remember all those popular Zara items you missed out on over the years? Well you've now been given a second chance to buy them.

That's right, the high street giant has decided to bring backs its 14 most iconic pieces from 1996 to 2012, and they're available to shop from today.

They're not exactly the same, as they have been re-imagined with a modern take to assure the longevity of the aesthetic in your wardrobe.

Zara explains, 'Reviving Zara campaigns of the last decades, the collection features re-edited garments from past seasons that are showcased through a selection of campaign images, giving them an updated look.'


The campaign images from the 90s and early 00s were shot on greats such as Amber Valletta and Kate Moss, which makes us want to invest in the clothing even more.

And speaking of clothing, you've got plenty of timeless styles to pick from, including a floor-length black wool blend t-shirt dress, heeled boots with square toe, a classic white shirt and black suit as well as a midi-length camel coat.

Basically all items you'll be able to wear now and in ten or twenty years' time. Shop them now or regret them later..

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
