Many avid shoppers prize the investment items that take months to save up for and that you’ll likely hang onto for years to come. But when it comes to trending pieces, most people aren’t too crazy about the idea of splurging on them—since, in reality, it’s totally possible you’ll be over them and ready to consign them in a season or three. For garments and accessories that are on-trend but not out-of-control pricey, there’s no better place to shop than Zara. Of course, what to actually buy at Zara is an entirely new discussion—but one to which we are more than willing to contribute.

Zara is always (like, always) stocked with every item we’ve seen worn by our favorite bloggers and influencers—all at a price that doesn’t make us cringe. Printed tops, comfy sandals and pastel handbags? Check, check and check. Whether you’re always headed to chic parties that call for the ultimate nighttime wardrobe or just want to show off your knowledge of trends at your local coffee shop, Zara is the place! To! Shop!

Plus, considering not all of us have unlimited shopping funds (Thanks, rent-that-eats-most-of-my-paycheck!), Zara’s more affordable prices make it easier to stock up without completely ruining your carefully constructed monthly budget. (It’s also totally possible to also find the occasional investment piece here, too, but what Zara absolutely known for is the quick finds you’ll want to wear this weekend.)

Because Zara is full of so many incredibly trendy pieces, it can be difficult to know where to start. Below, you’ll find 15 carefully selected and oh-so-trendy Zara items to shop right now.
