So what do I consider Zara’s most expensive-looking items? It differs with each drop. Now, I find myself drawn to its palette of neutrals-beiges, bright whites, earthy hues, and of course, the most expensive-looking shade of them all: black. Fabrications are also a key component in Zara’s more premium aesthetic. I think it creates the strongest broderie pieces-an embroidery technique that always looks high-end and a bit French-on the high street.
You’ll notice that my edit is almost entirely devoid of prints. Although this wasn’t deliberate, I don’t think Zara’s 2022 print offering looks the most expensive. (Although it does make a statement.) So instead, I’ve embraced crochet and different weave techniques, which break up the streak of block colours below but don’t take away from the whole vibe I’m going for. Scroll on to see my edit of expensive-looking Zara items, and hopefully, you’ll see something you like.
