If You Thought These 30 Zara Finds Were Designer, I Wouldn't Blame You

expensive-looking Zara clothing



It can't just be me—I had to do a double-take when I saw these Zara finds becuase they're just so stunning. Perusing the site's new arrivals is a weekly (if not daily) activity of mine and on my latest visit, I came across more than a few finds that actually stopped me dead in my scrolling tracks. While these pieces fall well under the $100 mark, I wouldn't blame you for assuming otherwise.

As a fashion editor, I have a keen eye for spotting expensive-looking details and since I'm always looking at designer clothing, I can easily spot those luxe details elsewhere. And the Zara pieces you're about to see below immediately reminded me of something I would see on a luxury retailer, whether it was a forward cutout detail, a buttery yellow-hued suit, or chic chain-embellished mules.

To see them for yourself and shop all of the expensive-looking items in my shopping cart, continue on.
