Brexit Could Make Zara More Expensive

More bad news, people.

As if today couldn't get any worse for those who didn't want to leave our friends in the EU, another horrifying realisation has come upon us.

Zara. Could. Get. More. Expensive.

And not just Zara (from Spain), clothing made by H&M (from Sweden) could go up in price too depending on what new trade agreements are negotiated in the next two years.

In the EU, we have a free trade agreement. But now we're leaving, Britain might have to pay to import the clothes - costs that will inevitably be passed along to shoppers.

Not only this, but buying anything from our from our favourite online shops abroad (Nasty Gal, Sephora, Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits) will be more expensive as of today - thanks to the British Pound falling to its weakest level in more than three decades.

Still, at least there's always ASOS. Oh wait, that's still broken. 

Cheers, Brexit.
