Google has released data about the top gifts trending on its Search bar in the United States- it looks like our American counterparts are searching for smart TVs, drones and adult onesies.
Americans are searching for 90s clothing including bomber jackets and Levi jeans.
“Looking at this year’s top-trending apparel list you’ll be forgiven for thinking we’ve gone back to the 90s,” said Google data content and insights guy Brad Johnsmeyer.
“Not only have we seen searches for these 90s fashion trends more than double over the past year, each city has their own 90s fashion item of choice—shoppers in Chicago are more interested in Levis while shoppers in New York are on the hunt for Adidas Superstar shoes,” Johnsmeyer said.
