BEST OF ASOS
THE ASOS 2019 ROUND-UP
By Amelia Bell, 6 January 2020
It’s safe to say that 2019 was a mega year for ASOS. We worked with some of the freshest talents (like Madison Beer and Swae Lee), collaborated with The Beauty Awards, launched our eco and modest edits... the list goes on (and on). Not to mention the ton of trends that infiltrated our New in, from neon and 90s vibes to extreme heels and mini bags. Want to know more? For the full lowdown on our standout moments of 2019 (and some mind-blowing figures), check out our round-up below...
Thousands of brides walked down the aisle in ASOS this year. Our standout style? The ASOS EDITION wedding dress above – more than 3,500 of you agreed it was the one for your big day.
THE BIAS-CUT SKIRT
Our famous satin bias-cut skirt sold over 120,000 styles in all sizes and ranges, including Maternity, Curve, Tall and Petite.
This year, expect lots of new skirt shapes, with tiered and smocked styles arriving in your New in, very soon...

Suiting has had a serious upgrade of late. The bestseller of 2019? The bright pop version, which sold over 80,000 styles.
Hair clips had a massive moment last year and we sold 150,000 of 'em – with faux-pearl being the standout across 71 different styles. And you guessed it: they're not going anywhere for 2020... the bigger and more extra, the better.
You bought a whopping 78,000 pairs of trainers like these in 2019. And get this: all ASOS DESIGN chunky soles are developed in-house using 3D printing, so we're always ahead of the trend. Pretty cool, eh?
Fun fact: we sold more than 45,000 of these babies in 2019. And that's just the beginning; they'll be going strong in 2020, too.
