Eight cool pieces you can buy in Zara’s up-and-coming little sister, Stradivarius

If you haven’t already noticed, I’m deeply obsessed with Zara. But honestly, I’ve yet to meet a millennial woman who doesn’t love the Spanish retailer. In my opinion, it’s high-street perfection when it comes to stylish everyday staples. But if you’re a regular Zara shopper, and your wardrobe is slowly morphing into one label, you’re probably in need of another option; one as equally stylish. Welcome to Stradivarius, your new (cheaper) alternative.

Between Zara’s latest drop and hourly glimpses of their Instagram stories, it’s a miracle I’ve any money left for a sliced pan. The Zara family has many off-shoot brands, like their more grown-up brands Uterqüe and Massimo Dutti, and their younger brands like Bershka and Pull&Bear. These brands have all made their stamp for high-street shoppers, but wouldn’t you agree that Stradivarius has been kind of left in the shadows? It’s been around for a while and lately, I’ve become increasingly more impressed with what Stradivarius has to offer. From long autumnal, coloured, check coats, faux fur scarves and Instagram-worthy wellies, there’s plenty of trend-led pieces to shop. It also has a conglomerate of solid basics offerings; like comfy turtlenecks and classic black boots. It’s the perfect place to stock up on your everyday fashion-y pieces; at affordable prices. What could be better?

So if you’re getting fed up of spending all your money honey, shop my edit of the top ten pieces on Stradivarius as of today:
