Zara Just Called the #1 Trend for Fall

There’s no better sign that a trend is really a trend than the endorsement of everyone’s favourite fast-fashion retailer, Zara. But how do you know it’s here to stay? While there’s no exact science (trust us, we’ve tried), there are multiple factors you can consider, aside from sheer intuition.

On one hand, you can look to street style and celebrities to see how much traction the trend is gaining—or if it’s short-lived and falling flat. On the other hand, you can also look at retailers. Ask yourself: How many iterations of said trend are they making and selling? That’s precisely what we did today with Zara, by looking at the biggest trends among the company’s new season product offerings. From novelty denim to ballet, we’ve narrowed down the five biggest trends Zara is backing for the season ahead.
