Choose the .zip file you have downloaded and click install now. Live preview and activate.

If you are somewhat advance and aware of how FTP transfer works this is another way of installing your downloaded theme.
1. Connect to your host using your preferred FTP program.(eg. Cyber duck,Filezilla)
2. Browse to the folder public_html>wp-content>themes

3. Then simply upload your theme file (you need to unzip the .zip folder) into theme folder.
