To say that TV shows have dominated our pandemic lives would be an understatement. Each show, when you really think about it, has pinpointed a particular time in the past year. First came Tiger King right at the beginning of lockdown during the end of March 2020, and along with it an ignited interest in animal prints and Carol Baskin costumes prepped for Halloween. There was Normal People, I May Destroy You, Selling Sunset, Unorthodox, The Queen’s Gambit, and new seasons of The Crown and Schitt’s Creek. And that was just 2020. This year already has seen the popularity of the BBC’s The Serpent and Channel 4’s It’s a Sin. And the TV hits will keep on coming, no doubt.
What I’m saying is that with nowhere to go and with a need for escapism, the lure of a really great series has been unmatched. Combine that with some incredible costumes and increasing budgets from streaming services, and you’ve got yourself some understandable fashion influence. I reached out to Lyst, the global fashion shopping platform, to see what searches they’d seen around some of the key, most fashionable shows from the past year.
