Not only will you be beating the crowds early in the morning, but you will also be able to navigate a tidy store with ease. "A morning shopping trip is the best way to actually see the clothes—and avoid the maddening crowds and mess," says the employee.

"The 'Woman' collection is closer to the entrance, 'Basic' is in the middle, and 'Trafaluc' in the back. Zara knitwear is spread out all over the shop floor, and Zara collection products are usually found in 'Basic' and 'Woman.' The accessories, however, are sprinkled throughout but are occasionally grouped together come sale time.
