I preface this by reiterating that good things do take time; however, I can say with complete confidence that I know exactly how to shop at Zara after eleven years. Whether it’s wandering into a local store (pre-pandemic) or scouring the seemingly endless shopping pages online, I have transformed my Zara shopping into a meticulous method. Though shopping is not a one-size-fits-all formula, I am almost certain that my editor-approved and straightforward shopping strategy for Zara will work every time. Over the last decade or so, I have realized that Zara is the absolute best for affordable fashion essentials; thus, I typically start by going to Zara for a particular kind of fashion staples. Think tight, ribbed knits with a subtle twist in the design details, like an asymmetrical neckline or a peek-a-boo back.
I love strategic searches—I’m a Taurus, and we tend to go into shopping knowing exactly what we want. Because Zara continually releases new “it” items mixed with basic wardrobe staples, it’s important not to get lost and have a purpose behind your purchases. For instance, if I know I am looking for a casual dress and trousers, I am most likely not going to even look at other categories. This way, there are no distractions, and I am spending the time finding the items I intended to buy. So with that in mind, I recently poked through Zara, knowing precisely what fresh, new updates my wardrobe needs (and yours may need, too), and have found the 25 best items on Zara right now.
