Zara

The mega-clothing chain from Spain finally erected its first California outpost near Union Square where it shares the same block as fashion heavyweights, Giorgio Armani and Burberry. Luckily for shoppers, unlike her neighbors, Zara brandishes its latest runway looks minus the latest Euro exchange rates for women, men and children.

On the ground floor, Zara carries all the biggest seasonal looks for women. This fall the military look invaded plenty of runways and Zara made sure it hit its floors with every possible variation in style, color, fabric and length. -- Grace Chen
