I had been to Zara in Spain, France, and Japan, and was delighted to hear that they had stores in the US. The clothes are very well designed, well made, and extremely affordable. It is a great place to by work clothes in that they are stylish yet functional, plus it is easy to stock up on basics for both men and women for the prices they offer. Sizing is a little tricky and the staff can be off in their own world sometimes, but overall a must see for any shopping trip. I recommend the Upper East Side store over the Soho store mainly because of selection.
Pros: Inexpensive, beautiful design, large, open store
Cons: , Stressed-out staff, Sizing
