Stats have revealed the top selling items of the year and by the looks of it, Aussie women aren't an adventurous bunch.

Online retailer THE ICONIC have released their annual Year in Fashion report, detailing the spending habits of Australian consumers based upon search and sales data.

The research pulls together a range of facts and figures in order to provide a snapshot of the fashion and lifestyle trends that were big business this year.

And while Kendall Jenner couldn't stop rocking lime green and Lizzo loved herself sick with a ridiculously tiny handbag, Australian women were obsessed with... jeans and a t-shirt?

It appears that Australian women are opting to complete their wardrobes with staple styles rather than trend-driven pieces with a bit more flair.

This year's top styles suggest that function is of upmost importance, and women expect comfort and longevity from their investment pieces.

The pursuit of a capsule closet is a desire that isn't going anywhere. And women are shopping for the future.

With the overt recurrence of blue jeans and crisp white shirts, it's clear we've all been looking towards one particularly lady known for her royally fabulous fashion.

Global fashion search platform Lyst have crunched the numbers in order to decipher the world's most influential fashion icons. And according to their Decade in Fashion report, in 2019, the Duchess of Sussex reigned supreme.

It's little surprise that Meghan Markle has been crowned Lyst's most influential person in fashion in 2019.

'The Meghan Effect' -- the phrase to describe the Duchess' remarkable impact on shopping habits -- is clearly hyper evident across Australia.
