The Truth About Zara Jeans: What to Buy and What to Skip

Zara jeans have long been a bit of a mystery to me. They certainly look cool on the models and come at an attractive price, but I guess I just have my favorite denim brands and stick with them. But that doesn't mean I'm not curious. Since you can't read reviews of items on Zara's website (unfortunately), much of what we all purchase can be attributed to good old-fashioned word of mouth, Instagram (s/o to The Devils Wear Zara), and gut reaction. When it comes to denim, though, I prefer a little more intel, so I prompted our Facebook Insiders group (join here!) to tell me what they think of Zara jeans, firsthand. In short, it seems that I wasn't the only one who wanted to know more.

While the feedback was mixed, there was a clear consensus: They run small but are prone to stretching out, so stick to the 100% cotton styles and consider sizing up. Even better, I'd take advantage of the free returns and order a couple of sizes so I can return the one that doesn't fit. Another tip: Fabric specifications are listed under Composition and Care on the item page. Ready to feed your Zara-jean curiosity?
