August is an exciting time in fashion as summer's bright hues haven't yet left the shelves, while tempting pre-fall offerings begin to make their appearance. This was the case at Zara's Fifth Avenue store in New York City, which I popped into this past week in order to bring you guys a glimpse of what's hot right now. I noticed a ton of python prints on everything from a blazer to shoes (take your pick of platform pumps, ankle boots or knee-high boots - amazing!).
There was also a healthy amount of leopard print, stripes, cobalt blues, emerald greens, mustard yellows and fuchsia interspersed amidst the neutrals like white, camel and black. I noticed mannequins were styled to mix luxe and casual pieces, like a denim jacket over a sequin dress or a striped tee with a ladylike tweed blazer. It would be impossible to pick a favorite piece, let's jut say I wish Zara was my closet. More pics after the jump, what's grabbing your attention?
P.S. Don't live near a Zara? Don't worry! The fast-fashion chain is launching online shopping September 7.
These black velvet pumps with gold-covered platforms remind me of the Charlotte Olympia "Dolly" pump ($895 at Net-A-Porter.com)
