Download at your own risk because Zara’s user-friendly app makes shopping super easy and dangerously convenient. The brilliant app mirrors the brand’s homepage with a new-arrivals section, seasonal picks, trends, and lookbook inspiration. It also saves your account information, allowing you to quickly pick your favorite pieces and check out with a breeze. Really, our co-founder Katherine Power swears by the app.


We called around for this insider information and learned new products hit online stores every Tuesday and Thursday. So if you’re hoping to snag the coolest pieces before they sell out, shop on the right days.


Allot yourself a good 45 minutes to really browse online through Zara’s seasonal sales. It’s a bit overwhelming at first, but take your time, and click around to find the items you’ve been eyeing all season. Here’s a tip: There are multiple rounds of markdowns, so make sure to check back every couple of days. It’s worth it—we promise! 


This one is pretty straightforward, but avoid the long lines and hectic dressing rooms at the mall by shopping online. You’re way more likely to find what you want online rather than searching through the racks. Plus, the outfit and styling inspiration is always on point. 


There’s nothing like a little newsletter alert in your inbox to influence your buying habits. The brand sends out monthly edits with the chicest curated looks and items sure to be the season’s top sellers. 


Looking for a simple white T-shirt or loose button-down shirt? Don’t forget to shop the brand’s basics section. It’s stocked with an assortment of quality T-shirts perfect for updating your selection of casual clothing.
