You may not always associate the word chic with affordable, but (thankfully!) Zara has helped bridge the two. Each season, I find several standout items from this beloved high-street store that are both stylish and budget-friendly. My favourite way to wear these easy-on-the-wallet pieces is by pairing them with staples I already have in my closet. By 58, I’ve certainly learned the art of mastering affordable-chic over the years. It’s not just about finding on-trend, fashionable pieces at a good price point; it’s more about how you mix the clothes with the perfect shoes, bags and accessories you already own. Ahead, see the Zara favourites currently on rotation in my closet.
