Often described as Zara’s younger, cooler sister, Stradivarius is more affordable than its stylish sibling but slightly lesser known. Although it's aimed at a younger market, there are wardrobe essentials for all ages as well as more trend-led buys.

Undeniably Spain’s most popular store, Zara needs no introduction but it wouldn’t be a Spanish clothing brand roundup without this iconic fashion hero. Zara boasts everything from affordable basics to slightly more expensive trend-led pieces that look like they’ve stepped straight off the runway (its designer dupes will make you do a double take). With killer accessories too, we dare you to enter a Zara and not find something you like. Even the Duchess of Cambridge can’t resist a Zara purchase.
