It’s Jacket Season—And I, For One, Am Thrilled

gettyimages-649433858-1509052374

When I woke up this morning, bright-eyed and bushy-eyebrowed, tiny blue birds flitting around my head, this is what I did. I saw a blanket of grey clouds, felt a chilly breeze drift through the weird crack in my bedroom window, smiled to myself, and thought, It's motherf**king jacket season. (With apologies to McSweeney's.)

i love to wear jackets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me explain. A jacket is a hug. A jacket is an extra layer of fashionable expression. A jacket is a good thing to leave at your friend's house so you get to go there again (sorry to the four people I've done this to in the last two weeks). Jackets are treasures of the garment world, and I am...

Meet Bershka: the European retailer offering up on-trend pieces at an affordable price point (yes, just like Zara). The brand, which is also owned by the Inditex Group, targets a bit of a younger consumer than Zara, but still specializes in fashion-forward pieces you can weave into your work and weekend wardrobes. Though Bershka launched its online store in the U.S. this past spring, the brand is officially making its brick-and-mortar debut with a pop-up location in New York. Located at 580 Broadway in...

Zara Has A New Sizing Tool And It’s Amazing

zara-sizes-hack-920x690

Zara are great at SO many things. Creating the most covetable items of the season (that sell-out in seconds), making the Instgram set lose their collective mind over a £26 skirt…

And generally giving us everything are sartorial hearts desire. From secret swimwear and the most shop-able shoes, to the much loved home section. They really do have it all *sigh*

But Zara sizes – does ANYONE understand what S, M and L actually means for their shape??

We do now, thanks to their brilliant new sizing tool.

You’ll now notice that when shopping your fave pieces online, a little blue question mark asks ‘What’s My Size?’ and the next part is pure magic… Not only does it calculate the right size...

This £26 ‘It’ Zara Skirt Is Now Back In Stock

zara-red-gingham-skirt

Shopping Zara like a pro is essentially the fashion equivalent of Grand Theft Auto. You have to get in there at warp speed.

Must-have items from that blue coat to the leather biker jacket last season were in such high demand that you will no doubt find them flogging on eBay for quadruple the original sale price. Big sigh.

But, now and then, the high-street hero answers our fashion prayers in the form of our three favourite words: Back In Stock.

One item in particular the Insta-girls have been going crazy for recently? Zara’s red midi gingham skirt.

WTH Is Zara Selling a Skirt Featuring a Pepe the Frog Look-alike?

zara-skirt-1
Every couple of months, like clockwork, a mass retailer does something so blatantly clumsy that you almost have to wonder whether it was actually intentional. The latest gaffe comes courtesy of Zara in the form a denim skirt that's being criticized for featuring an embroidery that closely resembles Pepe the Frog, a meme that's been appropriated by hate groups. The skirt in question features two frogs: one in the same green shade as Pepe, and one a mirror image in a darker green hue. Both share Pepe's characteristic thin red lips and bulging eyes, which are obscured by sunglasses. Every couple of months, like clockwork, a mass retailer does something so blatantly clumsy that you almost have to wonder whether it was...

There Is A Zara Outlet and This is not drill

lefties3-620x491

Today is Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. It’s still January, it’s grey outside and it’s the middle of the month. Don’t lose heart just yet, though: we’ve unearthed some news that might just put a smile on your face.

As reported by Harpers Bazaar, it turns out that a Zara outlet store actually exists. While this sounds like the stuff of dreams, it’s not. Called Lefties (short for Leftovers), it was created by Inditex in 1993 to help sell all of the last season stock at amazing discounts.

We’re praying that Lefties arrives on UK shores soon

One burning question we do have is: how on earth has such a Nirvana existed since 1993 without us knowing about it?! Well, here...

Pretty in Plaid: 8 Fresh Ways to Wear Fall’s Favorite Print

617969992
I usually avoid wearing prints unless it's plaid. The checkered pattern is possibly the easiest of all prints to wear—and this is coming from a girl who mostly dresses in head-to-toe black. I fell in love with the classic print in third grade. On picture day, I picked out a yellow plaid jacket to wear with my red plaid skirt, and to this day, I still feel good about it. Fast-forward 20 years: I find myself in love with the autumnal pattern again. This month alone I have invested in a pair of plaid shoes, a calf-length plaid skirt, and a plaid scarf...
