Meet Lauren, Who What Wear fashion editor and co-founder of The Devils Wear Zara. Lauren is so obsessed with Zara that we started calling her The Zara Scout. Now she’s turning the nickname into a franchise so she can regularly share her insider knowledge of the brand with you, including all her hacks, secrets, and must-haves.
If you're a loyal Zara shopper like myself, you know the really good items get snatched up fast. This winter, don't be the one begging the salesperson at the register to check one more time for that red vinyl puffer everyone has. Instead, be the one who gets it first and informs the crowds of your affordable winter Zara purchase. Now there are definitely a handful of winter items worthy of the investment including cashmere sweaters, leather jackets, and the like, but when it comes to more trendy necessities, Zara will do just the trick.
Ahead, check out my official roundup of the best winter items available at Zara. Organized into categories, you will quickly see just how good some of these cold-weather pieces really are. Including everything from statement sweaters to snow boots, scarves to faux-fur coats, get ready to see a huge portion of your winter 2018 wardrobe laid out right before your very eyes.
Puffer coats are essential for snowy climates, and while you might not think Zara's selection would be strong, it really is. The retailer offers up a variety of colors and styles, each guaranteeing a water-resistant exterior and cozy interior.
Trudge through the nasty slush on the street with boots you don't necessarily mind ruining. Investment snow boots are definitely worth it, but sometimes, snatching up a pair that's right around $100 just feels right.
Don't be afraid to stand out this winter with bold statement sweaters. Currently, Zara's selection is next-level, offering everything from oversize neon turtlenecks to sequin argyle pullovers.
Top off your statement sweaters with bold scarves. Zara's proven that with the right scarf, your styling techniques are endless. Trending at the retailer right now are scarves of all calibers, ranging from oversize graphic prints to faux-fur shawls.
Winter is all about mastering the art of layering. Trust me when I say having your bases covered with an array of neutral layering turtlenecks will save your life come time for chillier temperatures.
The 2018 pant trend of the season is arguably corduroy trousers. Lucky for you, Zara has quite the assortment coming in a variety of lengths and colors. This particular pant trend is great for winter because the style is thick and warm.
Last but not least, Zara wouldn't be Zara if we couldn't casually pop in and buy yet another winter coat we probably don't need. While you might be tempted by the festive plaids and tweeds, we're suggesting you stock up on the classics first.
