Zara has plenty of summer dresses to see you through the sunny weekends. Floral, yellow, pink or blue - you decide!

Although Zara is an affordable high street store, but it’s easy to clock up the £££ when there are so many amazing purchases at the click of a button.  

But there’s a section you may not have spotted on the website, a section that not only has amazing pieces but at seriously low prices. The rightfully names ‘special prices’ section can be found on the drop down menu on the left hand side of the website (Zara have even highlighted it in pink to guide us there.)

Here you’ll find everything from blazers, coats (not that we’re thinking of these yet), shoes, bags, dresses and loads more all under £50. We’re not talking basics here, we mean Zara buys that have the same quality and detailing as the usual pieces but just at a more purse-friendly price. You are welcome. 

So, what do we have our eye on?                                                                          

It’s all about the dresses that are not only ideal for every summer looks – from weddings, to work and everyday outfits - but are also all under £20. That’s right, less than an Uber ride home at the weekend. Continue to see our edit of the best ‘Special Prices’ Zara dresses, from minis to midis…

We’ve already told you how yellow dresses will make you feel instantly happy this season, and here’s more proof. The silky fabric, rhinestone buttons and luxe-looking print makes this mini dress look so expensive. 

£17.99, Zara

Around this time of year it’s all about those easy to wear pieces that won’t make us break out in a sweat on our commute. This pistachio number is not only in one of this season’s key hues, it also ticks off ruffles. Teamed with trainers, dad sandals or mules – you’ll wear it so many times the cost-per-wear will be pennies. 

£9.99, Zara

Zara denim dress with belt

You can’t go wrong with denim, ever. It’s one of those fail-safe fabrics that never dates and will last a lifetime in your wardrobe. We’re imagining this denim dress on holiday with a straw beach bag and colourful sliders.

£15.99, Zara

Zara daisy print dress

Just as daisies are springing up all over our lawns, they’re also popping up in the shops too. Daisy print is a winner for summer, as are slip dresses – add the two together and you get this dreamy Zara number. 

£15.99, Zara

Zara rustic check dress

We guarantee when you wear this to a BBQ, picnic in the park (because, gingham) or just a summer’s day in the office you’ll have everyone asking where you got it from. We actually can’t believe it’s under £20. 

£19.99, Zara

The front of this dress is so pretty with the delicate ruffles and square neckline, but believe us the back is just as chic with cross straps and tie detailing. A dress that looks great from a 360 degree angle for under £20 – yes, we’re sold too. 

£19.99, Zara

Zara tie dye print dress

Tie dye is having a serious moment. A lot of us may have memories of DIY T-shirt making in the Nineties but luckily there’s already made tie dye pieces all over the high street. Layer this shirt dress over cycling shorts for a true Nineties vibe if you’re daring, or go for wide leg trousers.

£15.99, Zara

Zara dress with cutwork embroidery

Naturally this one is selling out fast so you’ll have to be quick. Puff sleeves, nipped in waist, covered buttons and of course the broadarie anglaise style makes it look way more premium than the price tag. 

£19.99, Zara

Zara floral print dress with ruffle

The mini dress has made a strong return this year and it’s all about balancing out the length with longer sleeves. There’s something so flattering about the combination that is making cult brands including Realisation Par and Reformation deliver them in force. However, Zara has created an iteration that’s juts as good in the ‘special prices’ section. 

£15.99, Zara

Zara buttoned blouse style dress

Yes, black dresses are more than acceptable for summer and we’ve rounded up ways to wear them, here. This classic buttoned smock comes in sizes XS to L and will cost you less than a couple of morning lattes. 

£9.99, Zara
