Something for every style.

If you're an avid CF reader, then chances are that you consider shopping to be amongst your favorite activities.  

However, it can be easy to fall into a shopping rut where you keep going to the same stores and buying the same things every time.

And, while there's definitely nothing wrong with knowing what you like, it's always nice to discover a new retailer to spice up your current wardrobe -- especially when it's one that's a little less well-known.

So, to find out which under-the-radar store you should shop at next, take the shopping quiz below. Then, scroll down to see some of my top picks from your result!  

Quiz Results

Here are the results of the quiz; remember, no peeking until you've finished the quiz!

Everlane

Bright pink ribbed scarf, light gray crewneck sweater, cream-colored cable-knit mittens, red block-heel elasticized leather pump with pull-tab at back, boyfriend jeans in light wash, black zip-around wallet, white muscle tank with "HUMAN WOMAN" graphic in pale pink, light gray reverse-denim backpack with black leather accents

Products (all from Everlane): Scarf, Sweater, Mittens, Heels, Jeans, Wallet, Muscle Tank, Backpack

Your style is clean, minimal, and the epitome of cool-girl chic! You value style and comfort equally, and look for pieces that will go the distance. However, as a practical person, you also want to get the proper bang for your buck, and don't like paying cheap prices if something is not going to last.  

That's why Everlane is the perfect store for you: Not only are their pieces classic and wearable, but their prices, while higher than what you might find at a fast-fashion retailer, are reasonable based on the quality you get. Moreover, their simple-yet-totally-chic pieces are great for mixing and matching, and are sure to last for years to come.    

Genuine People

Rose gold metal frame cat-eye sunglasses with pale pink lenses, black cropped pleated wide-leg pants with belt with two silver buckles, dark gray ankle boots with low black heel and black cap toe, camel-colored v-neck sweater with black v and white at collar, beige cross-body bag with top-handle, blue-and-white striped asymmetrical oversized button-up shirt, gold infinity-shaped hair clip, gold metal feather hair clip, silver metal choker necklace, gray short-sleeved v-neck sweater with bow-neck, pale pink large wool scarf with tassels

Products (all from Genuine People): Sunglasses, Pants, Ankle Boots (Note: Unfortunately, most shoes at Genuine People only go up to a US size 8), Long-Sleeved Sweater, Bag, Shirt, Infinity Hair Clip, Feather Hair Clip, Choker, Short-Sleeved Sweater, Scarf 

Your style is trendy, but also quite elegant.  When it comes to fashion, you tend to take a less-is-more approach, and like to style your outfits around one or two statement-making items, while keeping the rest simple. You are also a fan of mixing masculine and feminine pieces for a unique look. 

Genuine People is a must for you, as they focus on of-the-moment pieces that aren't too over-the-top. Their silhouettes tend to be on the looser side, making them perfect for layering. Also, many of their pieces take cues from high-end designers (See the Mansur Gavriel-inspired bag pictured above), but are sold at a fraction of the price. Talk about a win-win!

& Other Stories   

Bright red long-sleeved turtleneck blouse, metallic purple mini skirt, with large side tie detail, long hot pink gloves, silver hoop drop earrings with vertical bar, powder blush with quote in "Voile Pink," a hot pink color; navy blue velvet clutch with wavy clasp, gold bracelet with star cut-out circle charm and embossed star circle charm, dark purple glitter pointed-toe block heel pumps, deep teal fleece sweatshirt with multi-colored and white "AMOUR toujours" embroidery, light-wash boyfriend jeans with dark-wash heart patches on knees

Products (all from & Other Stories): Blouse, Skirt, Gloves, Earrings, Blush, Clutch, Bracelet, Heels, Sweatshirt, Jeans

Your style is fun, spunky, and cool. You love pieces that have special standout details (like the wavy closure of the clutch shown here), and are always on the hunt for quirky clothes that let you show off your unique sense of style. While you're not afraid to wear statement pieces (such as a metallic mini skirt or long hot pink gloves), you also know how to style outfits so that it looks like you're wearing the clothes, rather than the other way around.  

& Other Stories, with its trendy-yet-somehow-unique pieces, is a great place for you to check out. Their carefree European sensibility is reminiscent of stores like Zara; however, the quality at & Other Stories is more consistent, and their pieces tend to be a bit more sophisticated. Finally, don't forget to browse their selection of high-quality shoes and bags, as well as their extensive and affordable beauty line!

Simons

Teal long-sleeved voile dress with small floral print, black hooded down jacket with floral print, black scalloped-hem mini skirt, gold oval locket with engraved moon and stars in blue book-themed box, white-and-gold coffee cup-shaped pin with "COFFEE PLEASE" text, red and maroon ombré wavy design wool cloche hat, set of three gold rings: two plain and one with small and large clear stones and faux teardrop-shaped opal; black mini backpack with small floral print in light pink, blue, and red with gold zipper front pocket

Products (all from Simons): Dress, Jacket, Skirt, Necklace, Pin, Hat, Ring Set, Backpack

Your style is feminine, cute, and classy. You enjoy keeping up with current styles, but tend to pair them with more classic pieces. You also love clothing that is timeless with a twist, such as this scalloped-hem mini skirt. While you appreciate a good bargain purchase, you aren't afraid to make an investment once in a while on that special thing you've had your eye on. 

That's why you should definitely check out Canadian retailer Simons. In addition to their own private labels, whose pieces range from trendy to more subdued (and whose aesthetic almost reminds me of a higher-end H&M), they also stock items from outside brands, some of which are high-end designer. From fun dresses to cute and reasonably-priced jewelry, you're sure to find something you love!
