Global fashion search engine Lyst has predicted what the most popular trends of party season will be, based on what people have been searching for, sales and active browsing data across 12,000 online stores and designer brands. From the material of the season to the brand we can’t get enough of, these are the trends about to take your Christmas parties by storm.
1. The trouser suit
Having been worn recently by the likes of Alexa Chung, Kate Moss and Kristen Stewart, it’s no surprise that plenty of people are planning to forego a frock in favour of a tailored two-piece this season. Searches for women’s suits have been up 79 per cent in the last two weeks and are up 109 per cent in comparison to this time last year.
Suits by Chung’s namesake brand, by Gabriela Hearst and those on Asos have all been popular, but not as desired as Topshop’s red velvet suit (which has now unfortunately sold out).
Channel the look instead – in the most festive way – by snapping up Zara’s statement red velvet suit.
