Summer is the season of beach-inspired looks. However, those of us who live in the city will know that sometimes what works at the beach definitely doesn’t work in the concrete jungle. Floaty maxi dresses can quickly turn brown from dragging along the sidewalks and straw hats can just look out of place. Confused about what to do? You don’t have to save your surfer looks for day trips to the beach thanks to Zara‘s new collaboration with Maui and Sons.

Zara has teamed up with the surfer label to produce a collection that perfectly combines the best elements of the city and the beach. You still get that relaxed surfer vibe thanks to shark details a plenty and soft fabrics, but the streamlined silhouettes are perfect for pounding the pavement.

The range includes relaxed blouses, shorts, cotton jackets, slim trousers and a raincoat. (Remember the last one for festival season). They’re the sort of basic-but-elevated pieces that would work with the things you already have in your wardrobe, and they can all easily be mixed and matched. Take a look at a few pieces from the collection:

1. Zara x Maui and Sons Shirt With Embroidered Back ($39.90, Zara)

What looks like a cute, plain chambray blouse from the front actually has this fun shark applique on the back.

2. Zara x Maui and Sons Hooded Camouflage Jacket ($129, Zara)

Think that camo and the sea don’t mix? Think again. This boxy jacket has merged them with a floral print to boot. Rock it with a pleated mini, as shown here, or try it with your trusty denim shorts.

3. Zara x Maui and Sons Water-Repellent Raincoat ($99.90, Zara)

Sorry to break it to you, but not all days in the summer are going to be sunny and warm. When the showers come, shrug on this sheer water-repellent jacket. The translucent fabric with piping details and logo on the back makes it as cool as it is functional.
