Spanish brands are globally sought after for good reason. There is something about that Spanish touch that makes locals and tourists alike go crazy.
Today we are going to be talking about the best brands you can find and shop for in Spain.
Shopping abroad is a must, knowing about the best of the best brands makes your life as a non-local much easier.
Trust – you do not want to miss grabbing an item or two in some of these stores during your time in Spain.
Whether you are looking for designer brands or super affordable clothes, this list has all the brands you need to know about in one list.
Make sure you keep this list handy when you go shopping!
When most of us think of Spanish brands, we think of beautiful clothes from Zara. And while Zara has fairly gained its reputation, we have plenty more to talk about outside of Zara! I think you will love every inch of it!!
All the brands that are on this list have physical stores and/or online stores in Spain. If they don’t have their own store, you can find the brands in department stores such as El Cortes Ingles.
El Cortes Ingles is like a US Nordstrom or Macy’s. It’s big and sells everything in one place.
By simply walking down the street in any Spanish city, you will notice how well the majority of the people are dressed.
Sweatpants prior to the pandemic weren’t really a thing I witnessed too often.
That means dress to impress if you are visiting Spain because people will definitely expect you to be dressed up and presentable.
Inditex is the leader of all Spanish fashion brands, it is the world’s biggest clothing retailer. This fashion house definitely holds a big throne.
Amancio Ortega is a very smart businessman and has grown Inditex into 8+ commercial brands in more than 202 different markets online and over 7,000 stores in 96 markets. Markets = countries.
His main goal was to have retailers everywhere. The billionaire founder Ortega has been featured as number 5 on Forbes’s top 10 lists in 2020. He has been ranked higher in spots 3-4 before.
Now let’s get into the different stores of the Inditex group.
Massimo Dutti –
Massimo Dutti is first up. This is one of the most elegant Spanish clothing brands and has over 677 stores worldwide. The clothes here are very beautiful. Think of them as a US Banana Republic type of feel, European Chic.
Massimo Dutti originally started as a men’s clothing line and then in 1991 was obtained by Inditex group. After some time, the Spanish brand Massimo Dutti, expanded into women’s wear, and then child clothes in 2003.
The price point isn’t low but also not super high, it’s about 50 euros for a shirt and 100+ euros or more for pants.
I can vouch that the quality is incomparable to other Inditex relatives. Highly recommend Massimo Dutti if you want classic quality staples in your closet that will last a long time.
If you find the prices off-putting, know that they have amazing sales. We’ll get into more details about the Spanish sale season later.
Their ideal consumer is an older customer hence the price tag and the style. Shop at Massimo Dutti if you are into elegance and classic minimalistic style.
Next, we have Uterque. They are very popular in Spain for the clothes, but also the funky accessories, bold prints, and trendy edge.
It is one of the smaller brands of Inditex and currently has 85 stores worldwide.
Since Uterque is a smaller brand, it gets more focus on higher-quality materials. As expected, that comes with a higher price tag.
It is geared towards the same consumer as Massimo Dutti, older and trendy.
Uterque has a similar price point as Massimo Dutti, though some items can vary to be a bit more expensive. The items here tend to be bright, edgy, and super fun.
Shop at Uterque if you are looking for different trendy quality pieces.
Update 7/9/2022: Uterque has gone out of business within these recent months. RIP they were iconic!
Bershka is on the lower end of Inditex in regards to price points. This Spanish clothing brand is targeted towards younger consumers of teens to early twenties.
The clothes here are sometimes really out there, colors are fun and playful. You’ll notice a lot of sporty clothes that you can potentially dress up or down.
When you walk into the store you kind of get a junior’s type of vibe but some stuff I find to have an evergreen age.
It is Inditex’s second-biggest store, it currently has 1005 stores worldwide.
In-store you can find everything from dresses to basics. The store sells online to the US and in 2017 there was a store popup in NYC.
Zara : The Spanish brand that brought attention to Spain
Zara sells modern clothing for women, men, and kids. They also sell accessories and shoes. The stores are always very big and have multiple floors. This is one of the most famous Spanish clothing brands out there.
Zara is the most famous of Inditex, there are 2118 stores and has a presence in more than 90 countries worldwide.
The trends aren’t always the same in different countries so if you’re American, I would say to check out this Spanish brand where it holds its original throne.
Regardless of the store count, every Zara store is intentionally designed to look the exact same regardless of the location.
They hire a whole team that is responsible to handle everything from design to the music in the store.
Shop at Zara for any type of apparel you might need, you’ll find everything from dresses, to blazers, to basics. The price point is also very diverse since they have different lines within the store.
Zara used to be one of the cheap brands in Spain, however, over the years the price tag has definitely increased.
Some clothing lines are cheaper and some are for occasions. Basic tops start at 6 euros and dresses start at 20.
Zara home offers everything from linens, to bed sheets, to plates. It has a fair price point and is known to stand out in front of expensive home competitors.
A cult favorite, Zara home has been a huge success worldwide. It currently has 535 stores worldwide.
The brand does a good amount of launches that release new items two times a week. Feel free to shop at Zara home if you need house accessories. Fresh curtains anyone?
Lefties : Affordable Spanish brand
Lefties was born in 1999 and are known as the lowest cost store of Inditex and one of the most affordable. In fact, the brand comes up as ” Zara Reduced” on my bank statement.

Pull & Bear : A great Spanish brand for teens, men, and women
Pull & Bear is very similar to Bershka, they have the same customer in mind. They are a brand that is geared for teens and young adults.
It also has a low price point that mimics Bershka. Pull & Bear launched online in the US in February of 2019, no physical stores yet.
The company’s motto is meant to take the latest international trends and tweak them and make them their own style. As a result, you’ll find comfortable and easy-to-wear clothes at Pull & Bear. Lots of cozy girl and streetwear vibes.
The Spanish clothing brand currently has 873 stores worldwide. Shop at Pull & Bear if you want edgy basics and easy-to-wear clothing.
Pro tip– I would recommend sizing up. The sizing is super tiny, I’m a US size 26/27 for reference.
Oysho : A Spanish brand for the active female
Oysho offers the most comfortable gear ever: activewear, pajamas, swimwear, and intimates for women. This one of the most famous Spanish fashion brands in active wear and swimwear.
They originally started off specializing in underwear, swimwear, and nightwear.

Stradivarius : A great Spanish brand for teens men and women
Last of Inditex group is Stradiavarius. Stradiavarius is targeted towards female Millenials and has a price point higher than Bershka but more affordable than Zara.
For example, you can find dresses here for 25-30 euros and tops for 20 euros. Stradiavarius is a great Spanish clothing brand for the modern woman or modern teen.
Originally a family-owned brand, Stradiavarius was acquired in 1999. In 2017 Stradiavarius tried to run a trial for men but it was shortly stopped in 2018. Shop in Stradiavarius for modern women’s clothing.
Bohemian Spanish brand Natura
Natura is an insanely beautiful bohemian brand and I love what it stands for. The Spanish brand name “Natura” is a Spanish word that signifies “the entire set of things and forces that comprise the universe.”
The company got started in 1979 in Barcelona. This was before Spain even had euros and the company got started with 15,000 pesetas. Pesetas used to be the currency in Spain before Spain joined the European Union.
Natura was under a different name “Zabriskie” when they first started and the goal was to make witty objects out of recycled cans. Eventually, they were making lamps, picture frames, and other unique things while they opened stores.
Sergio, the first owner, eventually started traveling and collecting unique items during his travels. The first Natura store was opened as a result and was supposed to be a shop for his exotic findings from all over the world.
Fast forward to 1994, Natura grew quickly. They became pioneers in the fashion space and the Natura bear became the symbol 90’s kids knew and loved. This was the year they also opened a store outside of Spain, in Porto Portugal.
Natura’s philosophy is broken down into 5 principles. First, to have fun no matter what. Second, find inspiration by traveling, they love exploring new cultures.
Third, they love nature and people and have another company Premio Natura that focuses on financial and environmental social projects. Fourth, pay attention to the details, and lastly, their not afraid to make mistakes.
Presently today, Natura has a total of 221 stores that are between Portugal, Spain, and Andorra and currently employs over 1,300 people.
Definitely check out Natura if you are looking for unique Spanish clothing brands thats exotic, bohemian and honestly just different overall!
Spanish brands : outside of Inditex
Mango is one of Zara’s biggest competitors. The brand offers stylish clothing and elegant classics.
It is focused on kids, women, and men.
Mango has a price point similar to Zara’s but is sometimes more expensive. Pants start at 20 euros and shirts start at 16 euros and up. Their midi dresses and mom jeans are insanely gorgeous compared to other brands.
Unlike other Spanish fashion brands, Mango has a presence in the US. Even though it’s an Inditex competitor, Mango is also a huge fashion house and mediterranean classic.
The brand’s founder, Isak Andic does not fall short of fashion success. By 2007, Mango had opened its 1000th store and in 2017 it did 2.5 billion euros in sales. Fashion lovers should shop at Mango for everyday staples and special occasions.

Sales season in Spain: Spanish brands at cheaper prices
Who doesn’t love a good sale? It’s so crucial for me to mention this because rebajas (sales) in Spain is really a game-changer for any shopper. All Spanish fashion brands go through major markdowns.
There are two periods every year, The first is at the beginning of the year after Christmas. Black Friday is OK but I personally think the after-Christmas sale is 100x better.
The major winter markdowns in Spain last from January – Mid March. The next 2nd period of rebajas season in Spain is in the summer. It starts the end of June and lasts until the end of August/September.
During these mark down periods you’ll notice they do first and second mark-downs so if you like an item but want to spend less, wait. It will most likely get marked down again if it is already on sale.
If you are American you are probably used to tons of sales, however, it is very different in Spain.
They are slight discounted prices and promotions here and there but to get a really good deal, rebajas is where its at.
I know my other fashionistas out there love a good sale.
Sales are a great way to save money. Stores inevitably have to do markdowns, so if you catch yourself in Spain during this time, go shopping!!!
