The Story: The Spanish retailer is best known for its ability to get on-trend items on the floor fast, mostly because it produces a good bulk of its clothing in its very own factories. It took a while to catch on the in the US, but design-savvy customers are now going to Zara for affordable workwear that doesn’t look cheap.
The Pros: Great clothes and shoes, great quality, great design.
The Cons: Knock-offs aplenty. Still no e-commerce for US customers, although sources say that it will happen over the next year.
