As video conference calls temporarily replace in-person work meetings, birthday celebrations, dinner dates, and family gatherings, we’ve become more and more concerned with being comfortable on the bottom and camera-ready (low-key, at least) on the top. This explains why global fashion search engine Lyst’s latest weekly report of stay-at-home fashion is filled with “waist-up” trends that people are shopping for.
As Lyst’s VP of Communications Katy Lubin remarked, “Stay at home shoppers want to dress up from the waist up. The spike in demand for statement earrings, brooches, printed scarves, and stand-out tops suggests we’re looking for items that will add some sparkle to our daily video call looks. The “jazzy top half” is the only fit that matters.”
One interesting tidbit from this week’s report is that after the Queen addressed the UK, people were particularly interested in what she wore. Searches for the color green and brooches rose dramatically in just three hours. Keep scrolling to shop more of the waist-up trends people are suddenly very interested in.
