What's like zara but not zara

Exactly that really.

I'm compiling my Christmas list and zara just isn't cutting it. Ive tried mango and I'm to poor for Gucci.

What else ?

Uterque, owned by the Zara group and they often have Gucci trickling down inspiration wise, just not as loud and glittery. Slightly more expensive than Zara but not massively so, Massimo Dutti and COS prices.

&Other Stories can also be good.

Thank you !!!

Stradivarius and Bershka are owned by the Zara group too .

Ahhh lovely ❤️❤️

Massimo Dutti is Zara too but classier! Why are the Spanish so good at fast fashion? Asos??? Plenty of choice.

I like & other Stories too

Love the look of Uterque, Stradivarius and Sessun, did not know those ones.

I love this forum. Even though I am on the other thread vowing to cut down on the spending, it really has helped guide me and open my eyes to brands I never knew or i have made myself take another look.

I don't know what happened... I had kids since 7 years ago so I last left myself and fashion there. I still have my old bootcut jeans and only realising they are kind of not around so much anymore.. !

I sought out the Uterque shop in Barcelona after reading about it on S&B. Lovely shop, wish they had one here. Stradavarius are great (also a first stop when I go to Spain), as is Massimo Dutti, and I also like Adolfo Dominguez as well - they have got a shop here, in Covent Garden.

I agree, the Spanish seem to have their fast fashion just right.

I do like &Other Stories and Cos as well.

I agree fashion is defo better in Spain.

Everything is cheaper in Zara over there !

You can wear boot cut. Still ok with casual tops and jackets - western style. ( I see this look in London!).

Yes, hold on to those bootcuts, they've been slowly re-emerging for about two winters now. Usually rebranded as kick flares which basically means they're slightly cropped and worn with heeled boots.
