Are we actually to the point in the year that we’re reflecting on what has been?! By the looks of the calendar, it is. I swear it was just February and I was sitting on the couch in a robe and slippers and here I am, in the same exact spot hanging out in my robe and slippers on the couch, exactly as pale as I was on January 1, 2019. By the looks of things, nothing has changed. However, by the tiredness I feel in my bones, a lot has. It feels good to be ending the year with some rest and relaxation, recharging and preparing for the year ahead. As we’re closing the chapter on 2019, it’s fun to take a look back and see what happened during the past 365 days. While I’ll be doing a blog post looking back at my personal happenings from Jan – December, today I’m covering all of the products that made big impacts on the wallets of LIY Followers. That’s right, today I’m sharing the top products sold broken down in a variety of categories!
Let’s start with shoes — there were three that took the cake for 2019. Ready, set, let’s roll.
1. born Uchee Knee High Boot aka the best selling boot for YEARS. These are the most comfortable pair of riding boots I’ve owned and I wear them regularly all winter long! For days exploring, casual nights out, it doesn’t matter what it is – I’m more than likely wearing them. I find them true to size and wear in the rust distressed leather, bonus: they are on sale!
2. Steve Madden Feather Studded Loafer These beauties made their debut during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they instantly took the internet by storm. This is my favorite style of flat with the pointed toe and find this pair to be quite comfortable. I would size up .5 for the best fit!
3. Adidas Women’s Edge Lux 3 Running Sneakers Since the day they went on sale, they continue to be one of our top sellers. These sneakers are so stinkin’ comfortable and come in a ton of color combos [some priced as low as $35]! I wear these when traveling or running errands and can’t recommend enough! For the best fit you may want to size down. 5!
Next up, denim. These Super High-Waisted Jegging Crop from American Eagle are our #1 best selling denim in 2019. It could have something to do with their under $30 price tag or their fun cropped style which makes them perfect for spring or summer. I would size up if in between and wear in regular length for my 5’4 height.
While on the topic of pants, let’s get to the best pants of all — leggings. We have two styles that dominated in 2019 so whether you’re looking for a more athletic pair or ones that will make you feel instantly sexy, we’ve got you covered in both departments. First up, these Core 10 Women’s (XS-3X) ‘Build Your Own’ Yoga Pant. I love that you can build your perfect style and just how comfortable these are. The waist stays up and aren’t see-through! I find them true to size. The other star of the legging show, these SPANX® Faux Leather Leggings. These are my most worn pair of leggings that I own as you can dress them up for a night out or down with sneakers and a sweatshirt for wearing around the house or while on the go! So crazy comfortable and stay perfect wear after wear. I would size up if in between, I wear in small. If you’re looking for other colors than just black, you can find several options on sale here!
Onward to tops, if there’s one thing LIY Readers love, it’s all things cozy sweatshirts and sweaters. I’m right there with you sis. The most popular from 2019? This BTFBM Women’s Leopard Print Long Sleeve Crew Neck Fit Casual Sweatshirt. For under $25, it’s a great lightweight sweatshirt for spring or summer. The best part – it works with leggings [win]. I find it true to size and wear in small!
Next up, this Caslon® Caslon Cozy Relaxed Turtleneck Sweater is from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and cozy it is. I find it true to size and wear in small!
The last sweatshirt that ranked high on the list are those from The Daily Tay. Between this Wines Well With Others option to the holiday sweatshirts and “headed home to see my dog” mantras, they are the coziest [truly] sweatshirt that makes a fun statement wherever you go. I’d recommend sizing up if in between in all sweatshirts / tees!
Now that we’ve got sweatshirts out of the way, let’s talk outerwear. There was one coat that took the cake in 2019 and it’s this J.Crew New city coat. For it’s under $100 price tag it makes perfect sense. I own this in several colors and it is such a timeless piece that you can dress up or down. If in between sizes I would go down.
Time to warm things up, this PRETTYGARDEN 2019 Women’s Striped Sleeveless Jumpsuit won in a big way in 2019. Under $30, this was my Easter look and several of yours as well. It’s one of those easy pieces to wear – I’d size up if in between!
Talk about makin’ a splash in 2019 — this Tempt Me Women One Piece Swimsuit was one of the best finds from the year. So many of you have submitted photos of you rockin’ this suit and it truly looks awesome on shapes and sizes of all types. I find it true to size!
To cover things up, thousands of you turned to this ADREAMLY Women’s Pom Pom Trim Cover Up. Under $20 and available in so many colors! It has stayed perfect wash after wash after wash. Switching gears away from the top purchased fashion items from 2019, let’s talk home products. There were two that stood out and both are necessities in my life. First up, this Nordstrom at Home Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw. For its current price tag of under $30, this throw is a no brainer. Super cozy and cuddly.
You have no idea how excited I am that this iRobot Roomba 675 Robot Vacuum-Wi-Fi Connectivity made the top of the charts for 2019. It is one of the products I never want to live without again [it’s running as we speak]. Now under $200 and if you didn’t get it this holiday season, I’dd spoil yourself stat. The best part of vacuuming your floors is not having to do it.
Last but not least, a few random Amazon items that topped the charts in 2019. First up, these under $10 YAHPERN Acrylic Earrings that are feather light and can be paired with just about anything and everything in your closet. Those who have ’em, love ’em.
These TIJN Blue Light Blocking Glasses were introduced to LIY readers early in 2019 and quickly shot to the top! For all of you techie users [I think that’s all of us] these help protect your eyes from the blue light that comes from phones, computers, even car headlights. They are supposed to help prevent eye fatigue, headaches and drowsiness.
Last but not least, this 100% Natural & Organic Vitamin E Oil For Your Face & Skin. Hannah on the LIY team bought this and swears by it for naturally hydrating and help prevent the signs of aging. A few drops go a long way morning and night.
