Welcome to The Great Try-On. With spring officially in full swing, it’s time to ready your wardrobe, and we’re here to provide a little shopping inspiration. We got to try on some of the best spring pieces from some of your favorite brands and documented it all from our at-home dressing rooms so that you can see how they actually look IRL. We hope that our photos and candid reviews will help you shop for spring wardrobe builders that you’ll wear over and over this season and beyond.
If you live near a Zara store, consider yourself lucky. The closest brick-and-mortar location to where I live (Raleigh, North Carolina) is hours away. On the plus side, I’m not a fan of trying things on in dressing rooms. I’d much rather do that in the comfort of my own home. Speaking of, I’ve been dying to try some pieces from Zara’s spring collection after seeing how luxe they look, so I did. Below are my reviews and IRL photos of seven trend-forward and expensive-looking items (or sets) as well as two pairs of shoes that I doubt will stay in stock for long. Get my candid thoughts, and shop them all below.
