We Tried On 59 New Things From Zara—These Ones Are Fire

Meet Lauren, Who What Wear's fashion editor and co-founder of The Devils Wear Zara. Lauren is so obsessed with Zara that we started calling her the Zara Scout. Now she's turning the nickname into a franchise so she can regularly share her insider knowledge of the brand, including all her hacks, secrets, and must-haves with you.

Hey, fam. It's Lauren and Mimi here from The Devils Wear Zara—our weird passion project that stemmed from a mutual, overwhelming love for Zara. Mimi and I both work at Who What Wear, where she is the social media editor, and I'm the fashion editor. Lately, we have been freaking out over too many new Zara products to count, so instead of ordering embarrassing amounts online and returning all of it (which we usually do), we decided to do the one thing we honestly hate—try on the clothes IRL. The reason we succumbed to such levels of frantic in-store shopping chaos? So you don't have to. You're welcome.

Sadly, Mimi lives in Los Angeles and I live in New York, so we couldn't brave this shopping trip together, but that actually made it a bit more interesting. I told Mimi I was turning this Zara shopping spree into a story for the site; translation: Please take pics of what you love while in the dressing room. Besides that, I gave her no guidelines. We both went to our favorite Zaras in our separate cities and weirdly came out having tried on similar products, but different. Between the coordinating animal-print sets and festive party looks (shoes included), there's no denying that our BFF nature really shone through here. (Mimi is going to kill me for that line.)

After trying on a total of 59 Zara products between the two of us, we walked away with quite a lot of new items that are the definition of fire. If you're in need of a good winter shopping spree, take notes because we pretty much hit every seasonal nail on the head. Not to brag or anything.
