As much as brands would like to design pieces based on creative whims, new launches are often inspired by cold, hard data in terms of what will pique shoppers' interest and ultimately sell well. To find out that information, I've found Lyst to be one of the most helpful sources. Sure, I love writing stories centered on French insiders or what the royals are wearing, but I also love tapping into my inner nerd and crunching the numbers.
Lyst recently unveiled a data drop that outlines the trends that are seeing big spikes in searches compared to the previous month. If you want to really delve into the data, Lyst also provided tons of other insights in the report that are quite illuminating. But if you want a short-and-sweet synopsis, I've got you covered. Scroll down to shop the fall trends that have seen the biggest spikes in online searches month-over-month.
