Pinterest knows what the world is interested in – based on the searches they receive from its users.
And recently the image-sharing and social media platform shared their prediction for a new style trend in 2021: athflow.
This is based on their observation of year-on-year increase in searches for house dresses and oversized outfits. Describing “athflow” as the “new athleisure”, where the athleisure style meets elegance, Pinterest says that it is the new go-to loungewear.
This new trend prioritises your comfort for all occasions – long office hours, lounging on your sofa, or a quick stretch on your yoga mat before dinner.
