Nostalgic themes are all the rage for millennial and Gen Z festivities. There was a 95% increase in Etsy searches for “90s theme party decoration.” Think Girl Power, pure pop and a little bit of grunge for your next soirée.
Marble has long taken the home decor world by storm, and now jewelry is embracing the stone trend. There was a 135% rise in searches for “sandstone ring” and a 134% increase for “amber earring.” Look to add more eclectic choices to your jewellery box.
The “gorpcore” aesthetic (a high-fashion take on outdoorsy gear) is growing just in time for peak outdoors time in the Northern Hemisphere. This inclusive and gender-neutral style is on the rise with a 58% increase for “cargo pants”. Those of us who remember the 90s will either rejoice or recoil.
Meaningful touches continue to be popular. Consider DIYs for all crafters and budgets like card kits, origami, and hand-sewn garments. There was a 174% increase in searches for “crochet pattern animal.” Perfect for gifts with extra meaning that don’t cost the earth, plus an ideal hobby away from the screens.
“Get ahead of spring soirees with quaint details like cabbage plates—popular in the 90s—and natural fibers for table settings. Pair these tablescapes with dried flowers for added seasonal flair.”
The team also predict that more of us will channel ‘Parisian chic’ in our homes this year due to an increase in searches for ‘sconces’ and ‘alabaster candlesticks’. Classics making a come back. Less Emily in Paris, more Aristocats.
