I'm a Picky Zara Shopper, and This Is What I'm Buying There for Winter

You’re probably wondering what being a picky Zara shopper even means, so let me tell you. All it means is that while I love Zara as much as the next girl, when I shop there (whether it’s in store or online), I do my best to do so with as discerning of an eye as I would have if everything in the store were super expensive. In other words, not just buying anything I see because it’s cheap or at the very least more affordable than its designer counterparts. Not a bad approach, am I right?

Since we are officially in winter mode, I decided to round up everything I would buy from Zara for the months ahead if I had an unlimited budget (and the closet space to match). Naturally, while I did my best to cut things down, it’s still quite a lot—39 items to be exact—but they range from outerwear to knits to shoes and they’re all just that good. So, without further ado, just keep scrolling to get shopping.
