I've Been Shopping at Zara for Years—I Did a Haul and Wear These Items Most

Zara is a go-to for many for on-trend selections. And Janet Gunn, one of the influencers we turn to on the regular for style inspiration, considers the retailer to be a staple. "Over the last few years, I feel Zara has really stepped it up for looks that deliver that editorial vibe. When it comes to trends, Zara satisfies my need for keeping my trendy fashion in check. I’m a huge fan of mixing high and low, and I’m always checking out its most recent hero pieces,” she told us.

Gunn also mentioned to us that she did a recent Zara haul and shared the items she’s wearing the most. Below, you’ll uncover Gunn’s go-to Zara items. While many of the versatile picks are out of stock now, there are similar pieces still available. So aside from the outfit inspiration, there are shopping recommendations coming your way if you too want to add a fresh Zara find into your wardrobe.
