30 Chic Zara Items That Could Legitimately Pass as Designer

If there’s one thing we know about Zara, it’s that not every single piece is created equal. For example, a $6 T-shirt probably isn’t going to be on the same level as a coat that’s around $150. But both are very affordable for what they are. I tend to find that fall and winter are the best seasons for expensive-looking Zara items. The chunky knits, faux furs, and outerwear in autumnal colors are just more likely to look expensive than summery items, and some of the current fall and winter items look especially expensive. 

Below, I’ve rounded up some of the most expensive-looking pieces on Zara right now (and there was a lot to choose from). Even your keenest friends won’t realize that they’re not designer finds—but your bank account will. Scroll to shop the Zara sweaters, trousers, dresses, shoes, and more that look the most expensive out of the thousands of pieces currently in stock.
