I’m officially dubbing Zara my Fall Fashion Fairy Godmother because the brand’s all-new Fall/Winter collection is *Chef’s Kiss* perfection. As much as I love shopping for weeks on end to build up the perfect autumn wardrobe (what can I say, I love to shop!), I admit I could really just do a one-and-done trip to Zara and have everything I need. It’s almost too easy! If you, too, are dying to stock up on fall’s top trends even though it’s kinda still summer, then get to a Zara.

Fortunately for us, Zara has gone above and beyond to not only stay on top of rising trends but to give us options that don’t look boring and basic—and this season, it seems, is all about going back to school. Zara’s New In section consists mostly of schoolgirl-approved houndstooth pieces available in a preppy array of pinks, blues and greens. The Gossip Girl reboot has obviously played a massive role in inspiring this new collection. Case in point: The lineup includes pastel pink blazers with black piping and timeless tweed shift dresses that Blair Waldorf would (probably) love.

If wearing all houndstooth all the time brings back too many memories of your dreaded high school uniform, I recommend incorporating at least one piece that comes in the print into your usual rotation this season. These classic patterns tend to come back into style every few years, so investing in a piece from this new drop will serve your wardrobe well for years to come. 

Read on to shop a few of the cutest items from the new collection. Remember that this is just the tip of the iceberg, with more fall fashion hitting Zara (very!) soon.
