When a French Girl Walks Into Zara, She Buys These 5 Pieces

We don’t really need to sit here and explain to you the wonder that is Zara. After publishing countless stories on the brand, including new trends, what to buy, and pieces from our resident expert and The Devils Wear Zara founder, our obsession is basically just in your face at this point. And like Zara is of utmost interest as a retailer, French girls are on the same level of curiosity when it comes to styling ideas, so we decided to combine the two passion points and dig into what French girls, in particular, are buying from Zara at this moment.

To help us out, we enlisted Paris-based IG star and fellow Zara shopper Aïda Sané of BasicsTouch.com to fill us in on the five trends she always stocks up on at the fast-fashion retailer. Keep scrolling to learn how the French actually navigate Zara and shop inspired items to complete your wardrobe like an effortless Parisian style setter

Moto Jackets

"I was looking for the perfect moto jacket for years now, but never found one that worked—aka not too tight and not too boxy, and at a reasonable price. Then I went to Zara. My new go-to style is for those days when you don't know what to wear, but still wanna look 'put together,' so you just throw on high-waisted jeans, a basic tee, and the jacket with a pair of Chelsea boots (or sneakers) and you're ready to go."


"An oversize hoodie is a statement for a lazy fashion person like me, especially on those days when I just want to be comfy and casual. But you could definitely try one of these Zara styles with a pair of knee high boots for a going-out look."

Denim Skirts

"I used to have some of the exact denim skirts that are available now at Zara when I was a little kid (and I loved them), so I'm happy to finally be able to wear them again for that old-school '90s vibe."

Oversize Shirting

"I like a boss-lady look. I think this shirt trend is the perfect item to accomplish that because it's oversize in a forward-feeling way, and it's easy to wear with anything from skinny jeans to a skirt to tailored trousers."

Statement Outerwear

"This is my go-to coat look when I want something warm that has that rock-n-roll touch. I usually love to style my Zara statement coat with an all-black outfit."
