My mum and I appear to have the exact same taste in Zara. Sometimes it happens by pure coincidence—last like winter when we both snapped up the same red knitted off-the-shoulder dress without communicating about it—while at other points we simply copy each other’s successes. When you’re short and fussy about clothes (both guilty!), recommendations are what keep the wheels of your wardrobe turning—neither of us likes to waste time nor closet space on items that simply don’t work hard enough for the money.
I’m 37 and she’s an age she probably doesn’t want me to state publicly, but she’s always been stylish and has never wanted to retreat into the archetypal uniform of her generation. As Zara offers an elevated view on affordable fashion and will often lean into producing classic items that feel a little more grown-up that its comp set, it’s no great wonder that we both find some solid options at the Spanish store. What’s more is that from an aesthetic point of view, we’ve always appreciated the same looks, silhouettes and finishes in fashion.
