I'm a Picky Zara Shopper, and This Is What I'd Buy There for Spring

You’re probably wondering what being a picky Zara shopper even means, so I'll explain. While I love Zara as much as the next girl, when I shop there, I do my best to use as discerning an eye as I would have if everything there were super expensive. In other words, not just buying anything I see because it’s affordable or at the very least more affordable than a lot of other brands out there. Not a bad approach, right?

And since it’s recently dropped a ton of items for spring and the season is technically still in full swing despite current events, I figured I would share what I’d be buying from Zara were I in the market for a new seasonal wardrobe. Somehow, despite my pickiness, I still ended up with a whopping 44 picks, so to see everything that made the cut, just keep scrolling—and be sure not to quit before you get to the shoe section!

Cardigans & Sweaters

I can tell this will be super useful.

The bright-orange matching dress might be too much for me, but in case you're eyeing it, I got you covered.

Loving these boning-inspired details.

A cinched waistline always helps.


If I can look this cool too, I'm in.

The perfect little top to wear under jackets and blazers.

Had to throw a little tie-dye into the mix.

Eighteenth century but make it 2020.


I'm very intrigued by this color and the way it's styled.


PSA: Zara's dress section is next-level right now.

I just might buy this to wear around the house.

I'm very into this flattering cut.

I'm taking notes on the idea of styling this over pants.

In case anyone is feeling fancy.

Matching Sets

My cart is getting bigger by the second. 

Shop the matching Printed Skirt ($40).

This set speaks for itself. 

Shop the matching Knit Jogging Pants ($40).

I want to be this girl. 

Shop the matching Ruched Midi Skirt ($40).

The cuts of this blazer and ruched skirt are both perfect.

Shop the matching Ruched Mini Skirt ($50).

Comfy enough for home, cool enough for anywhere else.

Bags, Accessories, & More

A chunky gold chain that will stand out among all the others.

A leather belt that works for spring and summer.

Nope, not over pearls or shells quite yet.

This just makes me want to plan a picnic. Perhaps in my living room?

Another belt I can't help but love.


I know I say this a lot, but I really want these.

Perfect for pairing with jeans or joggers.
