Zara.com launches online shopping in the U.S.
Online browsers who happened to be on Zara.com on Wednesday might have noticed something a little different. You can still find the clothing retailer's classic clean-cut blazers, shift dresses and cropped trousers, but sneak a peek at the upper-right-hand corner of the site and you'll see a tiny, much-anticipated surprise: a pint-sized shopping bag icon. The Spanish brand, known for its modern styles at moderate prices, launched online shopping in the U.S. on Wednesday.
Before Wednesday, online shopping at Zara.com was exclusively offered to 17 European countries.
With my credit card in hand, I visited Zara.com to look for two fall staples: a pair of boots and a versatile sweater. I easily located two affordable finds in the TRF high heel ankle boot with turn down lapel in brown, for $69.90, and the V-neck jersey sweater for $59.90. The boots will be great with a long dress and I'm excited to wear the comfy sweater with jeans and rain boots (weather permitting) or riding pants and heels for a night out.
I have a feeling that I must not be the only one shopping online at work. Numerous sizes for different items on the site have already sold out.
