Zara jeans 101






While I'm wearing one of these two pairs of jeans I often get a lot of compliments, and after a first question (where are they from?) usually comes another one: how do you like Zara jeans?

I know a lot of people swear by jeans from only one brand and are convinced that only those fit them perfectly. Over the years I've heard different experiences and while some claim only GAP and Levi's make jeans that flatter their figure, others insist H&M and Topshop jeans are the best.

Most of the time I don't think like that, all of my jeans are from different brands. I found a perfect pair at GAP five years ago, but I've also bought the most amazing pair of Terranova jeans I've been wearing for eight years (yes, you read that correctly). My most worn flares are from Levi's, still I have a pair of structured, well tailored jeans from Mango. So it's the mixture of many brands.

To answer the question from the beginning, how do Zara jeans fit into the ''searching for the perfect pair'' story. Well, I do like their jeans. I bought my first pair (in the third photo) seven or eight years ago. The fabric is great, I like the fit and I've been wearing them for years and they still look as good as new.
Recently I've purchased a new pair (an event which inspired me to write this post) that you can see in the first and second photo. Although I think the quality of Zara materials is getting worse with every season, the fabric of these jeans is quite nice, soft and stretchy. So the fabric is always a gamble, it can last for ages or it may fall apart after a year. Still, I believe you can recognise a good fabric if you have an eye for it, or if you learn how. Luckily I've always known how to spot a nice fabric, but if you can't ask a friend (your mum or sister) who can to go shopping with you.

As far as the fit goes, it varies from one cut to another. I like their skinny fit the most, I've had other cuts in the past and I wasn't that thrilled with them. Their boyfriend cut is usually nice, I have one pair like that, but their normal straight leg cut is not really my cup of tea.

So what is the verdict? I definitely think you can find nice jeans at Zara, just keep your eyes open and look for a pair that you will like. If you go to the store with an intention of buying a pair of jeans, you will most likely leave with disappointment. But, if keep browsing around waiting for the perfect pair to appear, eventually you'll end up with a great pair of jeans. 



Kada nosim jedan od ova dva para farmerki često dobijem dosta komplimenata i posle prvog pitanja (gde sam ih kupila) obično sledi još jedno: pa kakve su farmerke iz Zare?

Znam da se dosta ljudi kune u farmerke samo jednog brenda i ubeđeni su da im jedino one savršeno pristaju. Tokom godina sam čula različita iskustva i dok neki tvrde da samo GAP i Levi's prave farmerke koje odgovaraju njihovoj figuri, drugi insistiraju na tome da su one iz  H&M-a i Topshopa-a najbolje.

U većini slučajeva ne razmišljam tako, sve farmerke koje imam su razičitih brendova. Pronašla sam savršen par u GAP-u pre pet godina, ali sam takođe kupila divan par u Teranovi koji nosim već osam godina (da, dobro ste pročitali, čak toliko mi traju). Moje zvoncare koje najviše nosim su Levi's, ali imam i lepe, fino ukrojene farmerke iz Manga. Dakle miks raznih brendova.

Da odgovorim na pitanje sa početka posta, kako se farmerke iz Zare uklapaju u ovu priču o potrazi za savršenim parom? Uglavnom mi se njhihove farmerke sviđaju. Svoj prvi par (na trećoj fotografiji) sam kupila pre sedam ili osam godina. Materijal je odličan, sviđa mi se i kroj. Nosim ih godinama, a i dalje izgledaju kao nove.
Skoro sam kupila i novi par (taj događaj me je inspirisao da napišem ovaj post) koji možete da vidite na prvoj i drugoj fotografiji. Iako mislim da kvalitet Zarinih materijala drastično opada sa svakom sezonom, materijal od koga su ove farmerke je jako lep, mekan i rastegljiv. Sa materijalima je uvek kockanje, mogu da traju jako dugo, ali i da se raspadnu posle godinu dana. Ipak, verujem da se dobar materijal može prepoznati ako imate oko za to, ili ako naučite kako. Srećom, uvek sam imala dar za prepoznavanje kvaliteta tkanina, ako niste nadareni za to pitajte drugaricu (sestru, mamu) koje jesu da pođu u kupovinu sa vama.

Što se kroja tiče, on varira od modela do modela. Najviše mi se sviđaju njihove uske farmerke, iliti ''skinny jeans''. Imala sam i druge modele u prošlosti i nisam bila toliko oduševljena njima. ''Boyfriend'' model je obično lep, imam jedan takav par, dok najobičniji model sa ravnim nogavicama u Zarinoj izvedbi nije po mom ukusu.

Pa koja je presuda? Mislim da možete da pronađete lepe farmerke u Zari, samo držite otvorene oči i tragajte za parom koji vam se sviđa. Ako odete u radnju sa namerom da kupite farmerke, najverovatnije ćete otići razočarani. Ali, ako nastavite da tražite i čekate da se savršeni par pojavi na kraju ćete završiti sa odličnim parom farmerki.
