Zara is the fashion manifestation of "Champagne taste on a beer budget." Fashion devotees scan runways, then scour its inventory for affordable iterations of the year's biggest trends. (It's okay, designers are in on it, too.) You can find wide-leg trousers, knee-length tunics, and matching sets — silhouettes you fall in love with on style roundups, and need in your life immediately.
Even if you don't obsess over designer lookbooks and runway shots, Zara's vast inventory holds something for everyone. You may be in the market for a sensible work blouse, or looking for a slinky velvet dress to don in the new year. You could need both. And, at Zara, you can get both, and a fresh pair of culottes for the springtime while you're at it. The best part: With just $100, you're guaranteed a quality, edgy new addition to your wardrobe that'll win you a gaggle of compliments every time you wear it out. We found 31 of these budget-friendly gems to carry you into a fashion-forward 2015. If you haven't already, make it a resolution to take a couple of style risks this year. After all, with these affordable pieces, it'll be a whole lot easier.
