WE’RE well aware that every fashionista probably thinks this – but we genuinely think we’re Zara’s biggest fans.
Whether we’re after something for a special occasion or just more basics, it’s our first stop on the high-street.

But just like any other major chain, the sizing can be all over the place.
So naturally, we were thrilled when fashion fans on TikTok and Instagram shared a secret “hack” on the labels which supposedly hinted at how the item fits.
According to one former employee, a square means the garment is true to size, a triangle suggest it’s a little small and a circle indicates that it’s on the bigger side.
However, fashion expert Trinny Woodall has now set the record straight once and for all.
In a viral Instagram Reel that’s racked up over 15,000 “likes”, the What Not to Wear host explained: “After watching the insane ideas around the Zara tagging, I thought I would share what it really means.”
Filming the clip from inside her local store, Trinny said that the shapes indicate which collection the piece belongs to.
She explained: “So the circle means it’s Zara Woman.
“The square means it’s Zara Basic.
“And the triangle here means it’s the TRF [teenage] collection.”
In the caption, she continued: “Zara woman (circle ) does come up ok sizish occasionally.
“Zara basic (square) can be crazy in sizing and always differed and TFRF (triangle) [is designed] with teenagers in mind will always feel small!!!”
“Thank you for that clarification,” one fan replied. “No longer confused.”
Another added: “Finally someone talking facts!”
Tagging a mate in the comments, a third said: “I was wrong, Trinny always knows!”
