As 2021 comes to a close, Lyst has released its annual report cataloguing this year’s biggest fashion trends and most influential figures.

Stunning us with her custom designed Vera Wang gown at this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards, not to mention her otherworldly Balmain wet look for the premiere of Dune, Zendaya takes her well-deserved spot as 2021’s Most Powerful Dresser.

Among this year’s breakout brands are Christopher John Rogers, who had a cameo in Gossip Girl; It girl-favorite I AM GIA, which is worn by the likes of Bella Hadid; and Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS, who made headlines and defied expectations when it created the official off-duty apparel for the U.S. female Olympics team.

Unsurprisingly, TikTok has become crucial in determining our trend cycles — you can thank the app for reigniting your early aughts nostalgia, as well as amplifying more niche ones, like cabincore. And with the arrival of joyful “dopamine dressing,” it’s clear that clothes have become a key to freedom.

After an unpredictable 12 months, many turned to fashion not only as a means of self-expression, but as an escape from the monotony of everyday life and the restraints of the yesteryear’s status quo. The rise in gender-fluid style, championed by celebrities like Kid Cudi and Harry Styles also signifies a triumphant refusal of antiquated gender roles. It’s worth noting that Thom Browne’s Pleated Skirt is one of the most coveted products this year.

Head to Lyst’s website to read the official report.
