Data Driven Street Style Predictions

Fashion month is almost upon us and with it a fresh wave of street style looks. The Lyst data team have been analysing search data – monitoring global trends as they emerge – as well as watching hyper local, smaller spikes over the last three months. We’ve been noting the brands, products and trends that are on the rise, whilst overlaying them with products snapped up by early adopters to track the trends.
Here are twelve hot accessories and trends we predict will be lining our Instagram feeds over the next month.
