The bomber jacket is leading the trend as search interest for it has surged in the US and UK, says a recent report. Military chic, free-spirited and ready-to-go outfits stand out in both the regions and off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are trending, along with flower-child styles like boho dresses and kimonos. Among materials, lace and denim top the charts.

Google gathered data based on the most searched phrases during the last year in the US and UK for its trends fashion report that focuses on the trends that were popular during 2016.

Search interest for bomber jackets has been growing steadily for years, but it recently surged, starting in London late last year. Since then, it has spread to most major cities across the US and UK. In April, searches for bomber jackets grew 297 per cent year-on-year in the UK and 612 per cent year-on-year in the US, and people looked for more spring-ready colours and materials like satin, silk, pink, florals and embroidery.

“How people search for bomber jackets reflects its style evolution from military to mainstream. While it's often searched with words like ‘flight’, ‘army’ and ‘MA1’ (the traditional style), ‘David Beckham’ and ‘Kanye West’ are also common, reflecting the influence celebrities have had on the trend's adoption. General terms like ‘mens’, ‘womens’, ‘petite’ and ‘plus size’ suggest interest has made its way to the average consumer. ‘Kids’, ‘baby’ and ‘toddler’ are all top-associated terms,” says the report.

The off-the-shoulder look has grown in both markets from December 2015 to May 2016 – 261 per cent in the UK and 347 per cent in the US. The look is, making it a go-to for consumers across the board. The comfortable, stylish and adaptable look is associated with keywords like ‘dress’, ‘bikini’, ‘wedding’ and ‘beach’. People are also looking for ‘maternity’ and ‘baby’ versions of the style, highlighting its cross-age appeal, adds the report.

Jumpsuits, rompers (called playsuits in the UK), two-piece dresses and co-ords are all one-stop styles on the rise. While British consumers led the romper/playsuit trend in 2013, Americans embraced it two years later in a much bigger way. In the US, interest in the romper/playsuit has seen steady growth between 2014 and 2016.

The trends fashion report also says that terms like ‘boy’, ‘girl’, ‘baby’ and ‘toddler’ were commonly searched along with the aforementioned trends. Gender lines are blurring as men and women are adopting similar styles. Consumers are also searching for different takes on the trending styles and are looking to wear them everywhere.

“Whether it is a romper for a festival, an off-the-shoulder bikini at the beach or a lightweight floral bomber jacket for spring, consumers are searching for items by occasions and activities. They are both looking to adapt trends to the moment and find styles that can go anywhere,” says the report. (KD)
