Given the scores of engagement announcements that cropped up on everyone’s feeds in the last several months, it’s safe to say a lot of people have weddings on the brain. I’m always curious to see what bridal styles are trending in different parts of the world, so I tapped the artistic director of Barcelona-based Pronovias, Hervé Moreau, for insight on what Spanish brides, in particular, are into right now—and the looks are wearable no matter where you live.

“In Spain, I would say the top three trends right now are lace trim, embroidery or beading, and sparkle,” Moreau told Who What Wear. “Recently, I’ve noticed one of the most important factors for brides is a dress that is wearable and light, making it easy for the bride to feel comfortable on her special day. With this in mind, we’ve done a lot of research for our new collection and offer a renewed internal structure which guarantees a new lightness while still providing the perfect fit. The happiness a bride feels when finding her dream dress is a moment like no other, and with every bride being different, getting to this moment takes time and patience.”

Calling all Zara stans, if you shop the retailer just as much as we do (i.e., a lot) then this one’s for you. You may know about Zara’s sister brands like the equally as on-trend and affordable Stradivarius and Bershka since Zara’s parent company, Inditex, owns a handful of cool Spanish brands. However, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of another of its other sister brands, Pull&Bear, since it wasn’t sold in the U.S.—until now, that is.

Pull&Bear just launched its e-commerce in the States, so now we can finally shop the Zara-adjacent brand that our Spanish and European fashion friends already knew about for a while. We’re calling Pull&Bear the little sister to Zara because its offering skews a tad more trendy and youthful than good old Z. Soon you’ll be shopping here for fun-loving pieces like tie-dye tees, bucket hats, and all the chunky-soled shoes your heart could desire. And everything is slightly more affordable than you’d find at Zara, too, so add that to the list of reasons to check out the newest Inditex brand in town.

To get a taste of all the cool things on offer at Pull&Bear, keep reading to shop our edit and then wait patiently because we just know all the fashion girls will be wearing the brand soon enough.

21 Women Every Minimalist Should Look to for Outfit Inspiration

If you think defining your own personal style is difficult, imagine what it’s like for a celebrity. Designers quite literally throw themselves (okay, their garments) at the A-list 24/7, and having so many options at their disposal must be overwhelming (to say the least).

I’m not saying this problem equates to that of political strife or gender inequality, but personally speaking, I’d struggle to maintain my outfit identity if suddenly the world’s most sought-after clothes were at my disposal. Which is why I think it’s so easy to sniff out a star who dresses the way they want to dress, as opposed to what stylists would have them wear.

And none are more headstrong than the minimalists. When your career calls for you to wear lavish gowns more frequently than jeans, it’s little wonder the likes of Rihanna and Beyoncé utilize every opportunity to make a bold statement. However, with the minimalist movement more prolific than ever before, we thought it was high time we gave minimalist style icons the space they deserve.

Of course, we can appreciate all styles, but we’re particularly inspired by those who choose simplicity over standing out, and whose wardrobes consist of clean lines as opposed to tulle and taffeta. Because style is so much more than wearing the first expensive dress that comes your way.

For this, I delved deep into the fashion archives to bring you the best pared-back dressers from the ’60s right up to 2019. From Françoise Hardy and Audrey Hepburn to ’80s It girls like Winona Ryder and Iman, keep scrolling to see the greatest minimalist style icons of all time.

Style Notes: Serving as a PR for Calvin Klein during its ’90s reign, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy was the epitome of pared-back chic. Sleek tailoring, midi skirts, and accessories The Row would design today were her go-to—even for the lavish state dinners she’d attend with her husband, John F. Kennedy Jr.
Style Notes: Cate Blanchett is elegance personified. Equally confident in a couture gown as she is suiting, her eye for simple silhouettes is unrivaled. 
Style Notes: While much of young Hollywood default to body-cons and short hemlines, Elizabeth Olsen stands out from the crowd. Sure, Mary-Kate and Ashley may be her (ridiculously stylish) older siblings, but Elizabeth’s love of oversized cuts and androgynous separates is all her own.
Style Notes: In the ’60s, Françoise dominated the French music scene for the best part of the decade and became one of the most influential women in the industry. However, her influence also spread to fashion—androgynous to the bone, her uniform consisted of shirting, tailored trousers, and low-heel boots.
Style Notes: A modern-day French fashion darling, Clémence Poésy has starred in countless Chloé campaigns and is a regular at Paris Fashion Week. However, we think she looks her best in off-duty jeans, a button-down, and sandals.
Style Notes: From Annie Hall to her own choice of wares, Diane Keaton never fails to inspire us. While she’s undoubtedly a fan of off-beat accessories, her clothes are always simple and effortless. 
Style Notes: The cream roll-neck, the high-waisted skirt in contrasting black, the chunky gold hoops, the earthy-hued pout… There’s nothing about this look that we don’t love. Correction: There’s not a super-minimalistic Sade look we don’t love.
Style Notes: Gwyneth consistently proves that minimalists can wear color too. This navy-and-purple clash works perfectly with her alabaster skin tone, while the uncomplicated cut of her coat and trousers give an air of sophistication. 
Style Notes: Since starring in The Crown, Claire Foy swiftly became one of our favorite dressers, and it doesn’t get better than this understated Calvin Klein ensemble.
Style Notes: Little black dresses, trench coats, high-waisted trousers, and chic white blouses… Audrey Hepburn’s capsule wardrobe is a minimalist’s dream.
Style Notes: Don’t be fooled by her penchant for beachy hair and flip-flops; Jen is as minimalist as they come. No-fuss dresses are her forte, with pared-back accessories serving as her only add-ons.
Style Notes: Having redefined women’s fashion during her sovereignty at Céline, Phoebe Philo is singlehandedly responsible for making minimalism more interesting and what it is today. And for that, we’ll be forever grateful.
Style Notes: A Vuitton muse and Bond girl, Carole Bouquet reached icon status in the late ’70s and early ’80s. However, fame didn’t change her personal style—she always chose turtlenecks and cords over fancy dresses.
Style Notes: Somewhat enigmatic off-camera, we only really see Charlize Theron when she’s on red carpet duty, where she’s guaranteed to be sporting a minimalistic gown.
Style Notes: Being a minimalist in the ’80s wasn’t easy, but Iman’s fondness of monochrome made her a beacon of classiness in a sea of brash looks.
Style Notes: If you thought minimal fashion had to be all about oversized suits and coats, think again. Angelina Jolie makes minimalism work with her love of elegant pieces thanks to the muted color palette and interesting shapes created by her cardigan and the folds on her dress.
Style Notes: You may have seen her wearing sequins on Strictly, but Stacey Dooley’s personal wardrobe couldn’t be more different. Made up of camel coats, chunky knits gold hoops, and relaxed trousers, her red carpet style is pared-back, too. Case in point? This Mother of Pearl dress.
Style Notes: Her hair may have been frantic, but Italian actress Monica Vitti’s style was anything but. Think blazers, turtlenecks, and minimal jewelry. 
Style Notes: Having undergone a style transformation on a scale previously unseen, Victoria Beckham cast aside her collection of Roberto Cavalli dresses a while back and is now a minimal style convert, celebrating the concept of a capsule wardrobe via her own designs.
Style Notes: While Winona still sets our fashion pulses racing today, her ’80s ensembles will always have a place in our hearts. No one could pull off a brown suit quite like she could.
Style Notes: Lately, Zoe Saldana has been forgoing OTT gowns for understated dresses, cementing her status as a minimalist style icon.
