While the Covid-19 pandemic has played havoc with the way we dress in 2020, it’s far from being the only influence on wardrobes this year. British singer Harry Styles, French fashion designer Marine Serre and the Netflix show Emily in Paris also inspired people’s shopping habits, according to the Year in Fashion 2020 report from the global fashion search platform, Lyst.

So 2020 is and always will be a peculiar kind of year, marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, mass lockdowns around the world, and profound changes in the way we do things like shop and work.

These Brands Don’t Want Your Black Friday Business

Every product will be $1 more expensive on Friday, with all the extra money raised going to Fridays For Future, the climate movement founded by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg
