Style is subjective, but data is not. At least, that’s the theory behind Data But Make It Fashion, the popular Instagram account and website that tracks fashion trends based on data. Combining her passion for high fashion and her background in computer science, Madé Lapuerta, the creator behind it all, pulls together the trends and recurring colors, patterns, silhouettes, and objects that hold a fascination with current shoppers.

Sharing her endlessly entertaining memes, videos, and infographics, Lapuerta distributes her easily digestible data to the masses, using image recognition and her own custom coding from AI recognition models she developed herself. Her recent musings? Everything from the newfound popularity of Adidas Gazelles and the color cherry red to the decline of the denim maxi skirt.

Luckily, there’s never been a better time than the holidays to use fashion data to go shopping; it may even be the secret to finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Below, the top trending pieces to gift now, according to Data But Make It Fashion.

Adidas Gazelles

They’re a classic for a reason, and according to Data But Make It Fashion, there’s been a 13% increase in interest in this humble sneaker style. Easily giftable, they go with almost everything and can be styled in a variety of different ways to suit anyone’s look.

Cherry-Red Sweaters

The hue of the moment has increased 280% in popularity this past week. And while you could gift almost anything in this super-saturated, naturally festive color, it’s currently sweater season. Wrap your loved one up in a knit that speaks volumes and gives way to epic color.

Red Nail Polish

Following the trend of cherry red, nail polish in shades of red has increased 160% in popularity this past week. Why not gift them nail polish to match that sweater? Or, you could always choose a deeper, more vampy option for the bright color-averse among us.
