The new Zara lookbook for August/September 2013 makes us realize a sad but inevitable fact: summer is much closer to its end than most of us would like to admit. 

Unlike other retailers that make a smooth transition between seasons including many summer-ish pieces in their lines, the Spanish retailer embraces the inevitable seasonal change and brings many elegant options with a somber flair.

The new Zara lookbook for fall 2013 seems a cool roundup of the most important fashion trends spotted on the runway. Smart tailored coats with an easily distinguishable masculine allure, pleats and stripes, leather skirts or long pinstripe waistcoats are among the must haves of the new Zara lookbook.

Looking for the perfect piece that is both super trendy and versatile enough to be worn on regular basis? In that case, we strongly suggest considering an oversized coat. It was a star piece on the runways of the most important high end labels of the moment, is a powerful statement piece and it's practical enough to be worn on a regular basis. What more can a girl ask for? Furthermore, the versatile color palette of the new Zara coats leaves plenty of mixing and matching alternatives.
