Whether you're a die-hard Zara shopper, a Gap fanatic or a Banana Republic regular, where you shop actually says a lot more about you then you might think.

We've picked some of the most popular fast-fashion stores around and then determined what each one says about your personality. (In case you haven't already caught on, this is totally unscientific.)

Behold, here's what your favorite clothing store says about you:



You're the person who plans weekend getaways for your friends, books the Friday night dinner reservations on and always has a Tide To Go pen handy. You're a classic, like milk and Oreos -- everyone loves you.

Banana Republic


You were the first one of your friends to have a pair of work capris and coincidentally, you were also the first one to land a real job (a.k.a. not babysitting your cousins). You are the one everyone turns to when they need to find out about 401Ks and flexible spending plans, and you don't mind telling your peers why they should be putting their savings in a low-yield bond. When you're not working 9-to-5, you can be found relaxing with your favorite expensive candle.

Ann Taylor Loft


You read your Susan B. Miller horoscope like clockwork on the first of the month, you're obsessed with Pinterest and have an inspirational quote framed somewhere in your apartment. You treat brunching like a sport and have five different photo-editing apps on your phone.

Urban Outfitters


You've never missed a year at Coachella and you have a pair of ripped jeans for every day of the week. You follow trends, but you're not above wearing a floral kaftan. You've also never met a graffiti wall you don't like.



You're a trendsetter, not a trend follower. All your friends look to you for fashion advice (you were the first one to try culottes) and while everyone and their mother may shop at Zara, when people find out you're wearing the affordable brand their response is always, "How come I never saw that in the store?" You are also evangelical about long denim skirts.



You're the person who borrows your friends' clothes and never gives them back. You're a free spirit who will travel across the country on a whim and not take a single Instagram photo to prove it.



You never get really attached to any item of clothing -- you're all about quantity. Your closet is bursting at the seams (read: your bedroom floor is covered in fringe vests and crochet crop tops). You like wearing a new outfit for each Tinder date and people rarely see you in the same thing twice.
