I'm a Picky Zara Shopper, and This Is What I'm Buying There for Winter

You’re probably wondering what being a picky Zara shopper even means, so let me tell you. All it means is that while I love Zara as much as the next girl, when I shop there (whether it’s in store or online), I do my best to do so with as discerning of an eye as I would have if everything in the store were super expensive. In other words, not just buying anything I see because it’s cheap or at the very least more affordable than its designer counterparts. Not a bad approach, am I right?

Since we are officially in winter mode, I decided to round up everything I would buy from Zara for the months ahead if I had an unlimited budget (and the closet space to match). Naturally, while I did my best to cut things down, it’s still quite a lot—39 items to be exact—but they range from outerwear to knits to shoes and they’re all just that good. So, without further ado, just keep scrolling to get shopping.

Outerwear

A puffer you'll actually be excited to wear.

I'm so into vests right now, I have about 10 on my wish list.

My colleague Lauren has this, and it really adds polish to any outfit.

If you don't own a leather blazer, yet this might just be the one.

Knitwear

When I'm not buying things in black or white, oftentimes it's hunter green—can you blame me?

Tops

I can never say no to an elevated black tee.

Dresses

There's no end to my leather obsession in sight.

Bottoms

I'll never have enough black jeans.

The first step in re-creating the cool outfit above is buying the skirt.

I'm obsessed with the way these straight-leg leather pants look with strappy sandals.

Bags & Accessories

I tend to avoid beanies because of hat hair, but when I absolutely must wear one, I prefer them simple and neutral like this.

I've been eyeing this big bag for a while and can't believe it made it to sale.

Shoes

These are all over my feed, so naturally now I want them.

Loafers will be everywhere this spring, so why not wear them first?

I love a timeless find that's actually affordable.

By now you must have heard that knee boots are back in a big way.
