The clean lines, the minimal yet striking appeal and the trendiest outfits out there come together to make fast fashion retailer Zara what it is—a super popular shopping haven for millennials and Gen X alike. Founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega, the Spanish brand continues to go strong with each passing year.
However, it is only natural to feel that your style is in a rut if you keep revisiting the same brand over and over again. Does that mean you should let go of it altogether? No, but taking a short break is indeed advisable. With that thought in mind, we bring to you online portals and brands that are similar to Zara and its aesthetics, but will allow you to expand your horizons further in fashion. Are you ready to take the leap?
Speaking of online portals, Cover Story is what needs to be on your must-visit list. From dainty dresses to sleek jumpsuits, you can shop it all. And as if that wasn't enough, there are options for work, play and party. Need we say more?
