2019 saw no shortages of fashion trends. While some were questionable, others were made popular with the help of celebrities or took off completely on their own. But which trends outranked them all?

At the end of last year, marketing analytics software brand and trends data provider SEMRUSH released a report that tracked what the top Google searches were across 140 countries. Through this data, they were able to determine exactly what the most sought after styles of the year were.

Take a peek at the top 10 fashion searches from 2019 below and take note — we wouldn’t be surprised if many of these trends carried into 2020.

Oversized Sweaters

Oversized sweaters are the epitome of comfort, so we’re not surprised that it was the number one searched fashion item of 2019. The trend saw a 400% increase in searches over the last year and we don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.

SD Pick: Topshop Relaxed Sweatshirt

Take the oversized sweater trend into spring and summer with this cotton-blend sweatshirt. Perfect for layering during colder months, this relaxed sweatshirt from Topshop is versatile enough to wear with warm weather outfits, too.

Leather Trench Coats

If 2019 is an indication of anything, it’s that ’90s trends are here to stay for a while. One of the most searched nostalgic styles was the leather trench coat, which was loved by celebrities like Kaia Gerber, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian, and more.

Linen Blazers

Another one of the top 2019 fashion searches was linen blazers. The trend actually tied second with leather trench coats in popularity and would make an awesome addition to your wardrobe, no matter the season.

Bike Shorts

Another ’90s trend that exploded in popularity in 2019 was the bike short. While the trend snuck up on us a few years ago, we predict that it’s going to go even more mainstream this year.

Fur Jackets

Interestingly enough, despite a growth of 82% in vegan-friendly fabrics, animal-based fabrics are still coming up as some of top 2019 fashion searches. This year, fur jackets saw over 200% growth in searches.

SD Pick: Fur Sable-Trimmed Sheared Mink Coat
