Best buys from Zara’s new online store

SUMMER has gone and deserted us like a fickle lover. The only good thing about this is a new season is here, and that's a fine excuse to go out and buy some new threads.

Which proves good timing as fashion giant Zara launched its Aussie online store today. Previously, poor unfortunate Australian shoppers were simply redirected to the international sites where you would incur hectic shipping fees.

Now deliveries to stores and returns in Australia are free, which means you can try on the clothes in the comfort of your own home and avoid those insane change room queues.

The complete collections for women, men and kids (including newborn) are available across the country - great for people in regional areas without a bricks and mortar Zara store nearby.

Customers can choose between home delivery, or pick-up at any Zara store or drop point across the country.

Next-day deliveries are available in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and Brisbane. Same-day delivery is available in Sydney.

(If you are interested in further fine print about delivery costs, you can find it at the bottom of this article.)

The website also has a slight advantage over shopping in-store in that stylists have suggested co-ordinated "looks", so if you are sartorially challenged, someone classier than you has done the hard work of mixing and matching for you.

Here are some of the best buys on the new Zara Australia site to brighten up your autumn.
