Fashion month is a crazy time where sartorial lovers fiddle around with new trends, show off their favorite designer brands, and, most of all, share ample amounts of #content. Spotting those trends is one thing, but analyzing the data of how those trends are actually being received by consumers is another. Here to give us the inside scoop on the fall 2018 trends that actually landed this season is the senior director of fashion at eBay, Renee Paradise.
“eBay is a barometer of what’s happening in the world, and we’re constantly tracking trends in the marketplace,” Paradise said. “If there’s a significant moment or shift happening in fashion, it’s often reflected in the way people search and shop on the site.”
“With a cross body or mini bag purchased on eBay every 3 minutes, our sales uniquely reflect the cultural zeitgeist,” she added. “Shoppers know they can find whatever they happen to be coveting on eBay—whether it’s animal print and fringe for fall or cycling shorts inspired by the street style and the runways of fashion week.” Ahead, get ready to read up on the data behind the six trends that are overperforming on eBay this month and shop our picks for each.
