If you're like us, you probably turn to different fast-fashion sites for different wardrobe needs. For example, we all know that Zara has great tops and that you can't go wrong with Topshop's shoe selection, but there's a small problem: It's quite possible that you'll see the exact same pair of Topshop shoes on the feet of your most stylish friends, or the Zara top you just placed an order for on your office's fellow fashion girl. But what you probably won't spot out in the wild are pieces from the more under-the-radar categories of your favorite fast-fashion sites. Sure, they may be "hiding" in plain sight, but if you're always just going for the same categories on your favorite fast-fashion sites (like most of us, admittedly), that leaves a lot on the sartorial table. Accordingly, we took it upon ourselves to settle on the three categories at Zara, Mango, ASOS, and Topshop that may not be on your radar yet but definitely deserve your attention. 

Read on to find out what you've been missing and shop the pieces we're currently eyeing from each of these "hidden" categories.


Jeans may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you fantasize over the many wonders of Zara, but the retailer is constantly adding both forward and classic options to its denim category, and the prices are shockingly low compared to their premium denim counterparts.

You may not be getting the most high-quality swimwear at a fast-fashion site, but if you just want something cute to wear to the beach or pool this summer and don't care if it lasts until next year, you'd be remiss not to peruse Zara's stylish selection of swimwear.
