This Is What a French, a British, and an American Person Would Each Buy at Zara

The reach that Zara has across the globe will never fail to impress. The brand’s offering is plentiful due to its ability to cater to a variety of climates and aesthetics, all the while providing an excellent curation of the latest trends. Thanks to that international appeal, it’s always fun to see what fashion people from across the globe would add to their carts. In turn, I get cool outfit inspiration to guide my upcoming purchases.

In anticipation of my latest Zara haul, I looked to three of my favorite Instagram fashion muses from the style capitals in France, England, and America. Each city exudes a unique energy that I can’t get enough of. Paris is all about chic, elevated basics, London is all about bold color and printed pieces with an edge, while New York City is all about downtown-cool essentials like a leather trench coat. Ahead, check out 12 stylish outfit ideas that can be re-created with the latest collection from Zara.
