eight style traits everybody has been searching for continuous in 2020 – and we nonetheless love them


It goes without saying that 2020 was a much looser year than most of us expected. With widespread home-stay orders, the search for oversized joggers, stretchy pants, and cozy tube socks increased. But if you're like us, you know that while comfort is life, it's still cool to appreciate the season's current and upcoming trends. Of course, we took note of what the "cool girls" wore to the (virtual) fashion shows and especially in their living rooms.

We did some research and teamed up with some of our favorite online retailers to find out what trends we shopped for this year. With the help of Stephanie Nelson-Roberson, SVP and Purchasing Manager at Shopbop, and Celenie Seidel, Senior Womenswear Editor at Farfetch, we've rounded up the pieces that all seemed to be on the market this year because they'll still hold out in 2021 .

"(During) this time of year cozy knitwear is always a hit. Oversized sweaters, embellished cardigans, and cable knit sweaters are essential to feel (both) festive and fashionable!" Stephanie added, "Printed tops – think gingham, flowers, and geometry – are guaranteed to add a touch of personality to any look. I especially love this Ulla Johnson Pippa blouse, for example. Floral prints paired with puff sleeves and ruffles make this blouse the perfect one feminine feeling! "

Farfetch's Seidel summed up our approach to shopping in 2020 perfectly: "There is no doubt that 2020 has seen a seismic shift in our collective shopping habits. With our lifestyle changing so drastically, there was a collective realization that we were ill-equipped, to function comfortably in the context of shopping Our new reality. In the crucial time at home with nowhere to go, our customers have taken a noticeable interest in loungewear, activewear and knitwear. All speak for our need for comfort in uncertain times to search. "

As we round off a year most of us could never have expected, we just felt it was right to share the articles we were looking for and highlight some of our favorite examples in case you want to stock up for 2021.
