A new decade has just begun! Do you feel like 2019 passed by too quickly? Time waits for no one, and neither do trends. Luckily, we have the annual Pinterest 100 report to help us grasp the latest trends. Released last month, it features the 100 hottest trends spanning lifestyle, fashion, beauty, wellness and more, all based upon their surge in popularity among 320 million Pinners from August 2018 to July 2019.
The trends are grouped into ten main themes, but I’ve picked only the individual ones on fashion. The bracketed numbers indicate each trend’s year-on-year increase in saves or searches.
