The 28 Best Winter Buys From Zara, According to Our Chic UK Editors

·5 min read

If you're as fascinated by British-girl style as I am, welcome to your temporary happy place. I'm lucky to have access to a very cool group of British girls who know a thing or two about shopping. Our editors across the pond are very stylish (no surprise there), and they happen to be Zara experts. It's a great combination.

Even though we're all trying to savor fall as much as possible, the hard, cold facts are that winter is coming, and you'd be wise to start preparing your wardrobe now. Zara has already stocked plenty of winter-appropriate pieces, and Who What Wear's UK editors have lots of experience with winter, so who better to ask for recommendations?

Not surprisingly, our British editors really came through with the goods. Below, you'll find outerwear, boots, festive pieces for the holidays, denim, and much more to shop from Zara. You may not be able to copy their cute accents, but at least you can copy their winter wardrobes.

Joy Montgomery, Shopping Editor

Joy's picks:

Zara Belted Mini Skirt ($36)

"I am well and truly embracing the miniskirt trend this season, and I plan on styling this black number with knee-high boots and a roll-neck."

Zara High Collar Knit Sweater ($30)

"A colour-pop jumper is the easiest way to liven up your autumn capsule, and this aqua shade ticks all the boxes."

Zara Heeled Leather Knee High Boots ($229)

"I'm not a huge heel fan, but heeled boots are my one concession. I'll wear these with everything from midi dresses to denim."

Zara Cropped Jacket With Gold Details ($90)

"There's something very Kate Moss circa 2005 about this jacket, and I'm into it. Perfect for giving a rock 'n' roll edge to jeans and boots."

Zara Satin Effect Dress Special Edition ($70)

"Living in London you become a bit of a layering expert, and this slip dress would look so chic over a black roll neck."

Hannah Almassi, Editor in Chief

Hannah's picks:

Zara Long Striped Knit Dress ($90)

"This is sitting in my basket waiting until I feel cold enough to just hit buy! I'm a longtime knitted-dress fan, and although this kind of striped style is trending right now, I'm also certain that it'll still look great in five or 10 years' time."

Zara Double Breasted Blazer Special Editon ($90)

"Take one look at my autumn/winter wardrobe and you'll see it's predominantly brown. Why? It's that little bit more uplifting than a closet full of black, and it speaks to the '70s look I tend to go for. So this flared suit is an absolute no-brainer addition to the gang."

Shop the matching Flared Pants ($50).

Zara Heeled Leather Crepe Ankle Boots ($199)

"I'm 100% here for the return of platforms, and all of those pairs of trousers I haven't yet taken up to suit my 5'1'' frame will be grateful for them, too!"

Zara Jewel Necklace ($26)

" Party jewellery you can wear all-year round! This will pep up the plainest of daytime outfits, and it's the kind of design you can't pinpoint as affordable or expensive."

Emma Spedding, Editor

Emma's picks:

Zara Print Dress ($46)

"I'd wear this with black tights and chunky boots over a black roll-neck—a British way to style a minidress."

Zara Wool Blend Menswear Coat ($219)

"I love the idea of a tailored, scarlet coat. The perfect antidote to all the grey skies we get in London."

Zara Satin Effect Ruched Skirt ($50)

"I'd wear this with a chunky knit, as styled in the model product images."

Zara Wool Alpaca Oversized Turtleneck Sweater ($70)

"To wear with the satin midi skirt."

Zara Leather Ankle Boots With Lug Soles ($199)

"These will go with any outfit and give it a 'London' edge."

Remi Afolabi, Video Content Creator

Remi's picks:

Zara High Collar Knit Sweater ($70)

"I love this cool utility take on a high-neck sweater with the zip details and pockets!"

Zara Flat Leather Knee High Boots ($199)

"I'm very much into tall boots right now. These are a classic pair that would see me through the season."

Zara Water Repellent Puffer Coat ($90)

"Such a versatile outerwear piece to layer up with for the colder days!"

Zara Tailored Double Breasted Blazer ($119)

"My wardrobe needs a blazer refresh, and this red number is very refreshing!"

Zara Flared Jacquard Pants ($36)

"I'm always down for some fun patterns. This is a trendy geometric piece I'm loving right now."

Zoe Anastasiou, Social Media and Fashion Editor

Zoe's picks:

Zara Jacquard Mini Skrit ($46)

"I'm very into the current resurgence of miniskirts, and the interesting silhouette on this one makes it all the more special."

Zara Oxford Shirt ($36)

"I saw Alexa Chung wearing an oversize blue shirt and black miniskirt, so I'm going to wear an oversize blue shirt and black miniskirt. I'd pair this poplin button-down with the mini above."

Zara Menswear Style Wool Coat ($129)

"There's no winter staple quite as timeless as a double-breasted beige coat. This one is giving Max Mara vibes at a fraction of the price."

Zara Cut Out Pleated Dress ($50)

"This dress feels just perfect for the upcoming festive season. The pleat detailing and cutout silhouette are so elevated."

Zara Heeled Leather Knee High Boots ($199)

"The leather! The pointed toe! The comfy block heel! Everything about these boots screams classic. These would be such a good winter wardrobe investment, and I know I'd wear them on repeat for seasons to come."

Elinor Block, Assistant Editor

Elinor's picks:

Zara Cable Knit Sweater ($50)

"I've never met a cable-knit jumper I didn't like. To be worn with distressed blue jeans and chunky boots."

Zara Cropped Denim Jacket ($50)

"I've actually already got a cropped denim jacket, but if you don't have one and you're petite, trust me—you won't regret buying this."

Zara Structured Jacket Limited Edition ($149)

"The kind of cardigan that you can wear with straight-leg blue jeans and heels and look kinda French."

Zara Cropped Flare Jeans ($36)

"Again, for the petites out there, Zara does some of the best cropped-flare jeans that suit everyone and look great with boots."
