I discovered Spanish fast-fashion chain Zara while traveling through Europe in my early 20’s.  I was drawn to the clean lines, unique styles, and the reasonable prices.  Fast fashion is inspired by runway fashion and manufactured quickly  to allow the consumer to take advantage of trend-setting styles for a steal.  I attended the launch party in February when Zara opened the Seattle location at Westlake Center.  The Zara Basics Collection includes great everyday pieces but you can also find many fun and fresh updates for the season.  Here are some of my current spring favorites for women and men:
