As you may have read throughout my articles—or seen on Instagram—I love Zara as much as the next girl. However, my relationship with the fast-fashion powerhouse seems to be a little more temperamental than our average Zara devotee, taking regular breaks from the brand, mostly because the pieces are so good that everyone has them!

Since, at the moment, my on-again, off-again relationship with the brand happens to be off and we’re on the heels of a new season, today I’ve decided to look to some of my other favorite affordable sites and brands to see what under-$50 fall-ready scores I could find. From shoes and bags to dresses and tops, shop my picks of items you won’t see everyone else wearing but will love as much as your last Zara score. Check them out below.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
