While I love perusing the new arrivals section at Zara (both on the job and off), there are a few items I tend to avoid at the retailer. Shopping among the thousands of products can be a tad overwhelming so my personal breakdown can make it a lot easier. I’m not saying to never buy the items below because some of my don’ts might be your favorite section to shop at, and that’s okay. But as an editor who’s tried out my fair share of Zara items and has chatted with my coworkers on the subject plenty, I’ve taken note of the items that have upheld their quality over time.
Ahead, take a look at the items that I will always buy from Zara and the items that I tend to pass on. The dos on my list include items that I feel always look expensive, have great quality, and grant me the most compliments out of any other Zara purchases (and trust me—I have many). Keep scrolling to see and shop the items I think are worth the purchase.
