If you spent a day studying our Slack messages, reading our story pitches, or as a fly on the wall in one of our (virtual) meetings, you'd quickly realise that we Who What Wear editors talk about Zara a lot. Given that you're taking the time to read this, perhaps you do too. And at the start of each season, our Zara discussions really ramp up as the new arrivals start coming in hot.
It's already September, and you know what that means: Zara's assortment of coats, boots, and sweaters to cosy up in are multiplying on a daily basis. And since we consider ourselves to be Zara experts, we thought you might be interested to hear which pieces we have our eyes on for autumn. It wasn't easy, but we narrowed it down to items that are sure to bring your autumn 2021 wardrobe to the next level. You know what to do.
