Young professionals who want the latest look without the sticker shock hit Zara for hip clothes that won't last more than a season or two. The store's minimalist window displays are hard to miss; inside you'll find the latest looks for men, women, and children. Zara is self-made entrepreneur Amancio Ortega's textile empire flagship, and you will find locations all over the city. Its clothes are considerably cheaper in Spain than in the United States or the United Kingdom.
There are also two outlet stores in Madrid—in the Gran Vía store and in Calle Carretas—both called Lefties. If you choose to try your luck at the outlets, keep in mind that Monday and Thursday are when new deliveries arrive.
