I’m not trying to throw shade at Zara or anything, but sometimes shopping there means accepting that at least five people will own the same thing as you. While I can’t help myself to a Zara haul every now and again, it feels satisfying to discover other equally as affordable brands that are just as good as the Z—and maybe even better (because not as many people know about them). They’re definitely out there, they just take a little bit of insider shopping knowledge and a good eye to find.
Brands like H&M, Topshop, and Mango are on par with Zara in terms of which trends they carry, so today I’m highlighting these tried-and-true brands as well as a few more lesser-known labels that deserve to be on your radar. So if you call yourself a Zara fan and love their selection, I have a good feeling you’re about to lose it over these 25 finds that are Zara-level good. Keep scrolling to shop the tops, dresses, jeans, and skirts that all have that special element to them.
