I'm a Fashion Editor, and These Are the Under-$50 Zara Items I'd Buy

Truth be told, I sometimes get angry (relatively speaking) when I pop over to Zara's site for one piece to put in a story and discover that it has what seems like thousands of brand-new arrivals that I can't help but spend the next 20 minutes scrolling through. But shopping is my job, so I always power through (tough gig, I know) in search of all the hidden gems that are worth calling to our Zara-loving readers' attention.

It never ceases to shock and amaze me how many stellar under-$50 pieces Zara always has in stock, and those are often the ones I choose to buy (because, cheap thrills). Among the current inventory, I found leather sandals that made my jaw drop, tons of special dresses, expensive-looking accessories, and so much more. So before you fall into a Zara rabbit hole, scroll through this story to shop the under-$50 Zara pieces I'd buy right now.
