We’ve talked about food and beauty recently, and now we’re ready to share insights from another popular category on Pinterest: fashion!
Lots of people use Pinterest to discover inspiring fashion ideas. Seriously, lots. There are more than 4.5 billion fashion-related Pins and more than 30 million people have added one of those Pins to their boards. Women on Pinterest are even 46% more likely to make fashion purchases than the average woman, according to comScore.
Pinner interests around fashion tend to fall into four categories:
- What to wear, inspirational outfits that help you discover your personal style
- Tips and trends, visual guides that help you look your best every season
- Must-have pieces, the classic and contemporary items you should have in your closet
- High fashion, beautiful, glamorous clothes fit for the catwalk
Even if your business isn’t explicitly about fashion, you can use fashion as a way to reach people. For example:
- Lots of TV shows, including Downton Abbey, Scandal, Game of Thrones, The New Girl and Pretty Little Liars, create fashion boards to help people dress like their favorite stars
- Jetsetter helps frequent fliers travel in style
- Wikihow has a board just for DIY denim projects
