I Spent 3 Hours in the World’s Biggest Zara—Here’s What Came Home With Me


There are few things in life as glorious as the Zara new-arrivals section, especially when it’s on sale. The Spanish retailer is known for its trend-forward pieces (particularly those inspired by high-fashion runways) and a slew of elevated basics that almost always fit with anything in your closet. 

When I headed to Madrid to spend the holidays with my family, there was only one thing I had in mind: heading to the world’s biggest Zara, which recently opened next to the Plaza de España. Opened in late 2022, the shopping mecca boasts four floors of the best Zara has to offer, including dedicated sections for women, men, children, and cosmetics. The first week of the new year is one of the busiest times of year for retail sales, so naturally, I used the occasion to stock up on 2023 trends at incredible prices. If you know me, you know I can’t resist a bargain.

Below are all of the eye-catching new arrivals I tried on, picked up, and took home with me—including the ones I had to buy a carry-on suitcase for.
