Oh, the joys of online shopping. Not only can you buy something at a click of a button and have it delivered within 24 hours (sometimes less), but you can also get alerts on newly stocked buys, put in your measurements to get the right fit, and of course, rank products by how well they're reviewed by the shopping public.
Erica Davies wears an And/Or dress from John Lewis.
We recently went down a review rabbit hole with high-street fave Marks & Spencer to find out which pieces are trending on its site. We got such a great response from our readers that we decided to apply the same test to British retail giant John Lewis. We filtered dresses, tops, shoes, skirts and bags by both the "rating" and "popularity" tabs to in order to find the pieces that you, the shopping public, simply cannot get enough of.
Unsurprisingly, the were plenty of winning basics that made it to the top of the list, and Hush came up a fair few times thanks to the brand's versatile separates. There was also a dash of prints—primarily animal prints, checks and stripes (clearly, leopard really is a neutral now). Our faves have to be Kin's check dress, which would look so great belted with chunky sandals (Hush's sliders would do the job nicely), John Lewis's pleated skirt and Madewell's huge tote. Scroll down to see the best-selling buys.
