ZARA has long been a favourite for many fashionistas and Emily Lucy Rajch is no exception.

Looking to replenish her wardrobe, the YouTuber decided to check out the high-street retailer's latest collection – and it's safe to say, not everything was a hit.

Demonstrating the trendy garments, the UK Size 12-14 style lover shared the shopping haul to her 97,600 subscribers on the platform.

And whilst some items were a win, others left her a little less than impressed.

Here's what the fashion guru thought…

The winners

First up in the video was a fashionable biker jacket – a staple in the colder months – which she had bagged in a Large.

''Zara have delivered […]. It's just a really nice transitional jacket to have in your wardrobe right now while we are in-between seasons.''

Amongst the wins was also a cute flowy dress with a dainty print in black and white – easy to style either up or down, this £49.99 garment is a staple.

However, as Emily noted, there dress, which she bagged in XL, comes with a bead detailing.

''It's just a bit too much, you know. Like I've got marbles or something.''

Up next was a light cream blazer, which retails for £55 – and although it's definitely more on the pricey side, Emily noted it's versatile and easy to style for any occasion.

''You can get away with it in winter, autumn, spring and summer.''

Winter doesn't necessarily mean going all black and ditching colour – and this is where Zara's latest hit, a tie-dye mesh dress in purple and burnt orange, comes into play.

''She did not disappoint, wow. I love this so much,'' Emily couldn't stop praising the garment, which she had grabbed in a Medium.

If you're looking to update your wardrobe with some cosy jumpers, then Zara's black and white stripy knitted jumper is a must this season.

''It has not disappointed. It is so beautiful. It's got a nice structured knit to it.''

Just as pleasantly surprised Emily was with their black jumper with white horizontal stripes and a zip detailing along the neckline (£39.99).

Last up in the haul was a stunning satin blouse with feather sleeves that's perfect for the festive period ahead.

''This is just so gorgeous to wear it with the leather leggings or trousers.

''This is a vibe. I feel like you will be able to get it out again next year's Christmas.

Total flops

Those who live and breathe all things fashion know that a leather skirt is a staple during this season.

But if you're on the lookout for a new pair, perhaps give Zara a miss, as their black skirt with ruching detail left Emily in two minds – whilst she didn't hate it, she also wasn't too fond of it either.

Trying on the clothes, Emily also demonstrated what she looked like in a faux leather skater skirt, which she had purchased in XL.

''I feel like it's actually quite flattering. But it just looks […] a little bit cheap. This is a no from me.''

Just as big of a fail was the black skort – a trendy hybrid of a skirt and shorts.

''As you walk, the shorts ride up, which is just so unflattering.''

Amongst the list of no-nos was also a khaki dress with low cut-out detailing.

Despite having sized up and purchasing it in Size 16 – 18, Emily went through an ordeal to put it on.
