A couple of weeks ago I was browsing on Depop when I came across my dream Zara trousers, they were out of stock on the website and I was not prepared to pay over £60 (which was the re-sale value) either. I was heartbroken. But initiative kicked in and had a little search on the interweb and found these dupes on EBay for £18.99. I was pleasantly surprised on the amount of dupes there actually was on there. With anything on EBay I like to check out that the company is actually legitimate but it had plenty of good reviews and 3 days delivery was included in the price with 30 days return policy so I thought it was worth a shot.
Admittedly I was still quite disheartened as I wasn’t sure whether they were going to be like the original Zara trousers that I had fallen in love with as you hear hundreds of stories from people who have ordered clothes from these EBay companies and they come looking nothing like the pictures. The trousers arrived in 3 days like it said on the page and I was seriously impressed with the quality of the trousers and they were identical to the Zara ones, I couldn’t tell them apart.
When it comes to buying these sort of tie-waist trousers I always go up a size as they never seem to fit me properly in a small, which is my usual size. However in this case it was important to check the size guide on the purchase page as the size S was perfect for me as it includes all of the waist and height measurements.
The detail on these trousers is what made me fall in love with them. The pinstripe detail is very popular at the moment and I’m loving all of the pinstripe trouser at the moment however there was something about the exotic flowers printed on top that really caught my eye.
I am now on the look out for some more clothing dupes like these Zara trousers as they are identical and I’d rather spend as little as possible of on these current pieces as they are likely to come in and out of fashion!
I am also wearing this crepe style wrap round top from Pull & Bear with my Reebok Classics as I was in London and I need a pair of comfy shoes to get me through the day. (I will buy some new shoes soon I promise.)
