Forced to sit at home most of the time, consumers choose formal wear less and less, giving preference to the much more comfortable sportswear, which is equally well suited for walking and wearing at home. Wearing a tracksuit is becoming an integral part of the closet in many countries. 

According to Jill Stanton, director of women's and children's apparel at M&S, the company expects this trend to continue for a long time. In 2020, the number of customers who prefer outdoor clothing increased immediately by 52%. Online sales of athletic apparel increased by 200% from March to September 2020. For this reason, M&S intends to focus on this particular area.

About a similar "sports shift" declared and other retailers. Sweaty Betty, which specializes in sportswear for women, said it expected sales to grow by 20% in 2020. The company True Fit, which offers a wide range of sporting goods, says the volume of orders for women's clothing has increased by 84% since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.

As analysts point out, the demand for comfortable clothing has steadily increased year after year. But the pandemic spurred it on, dramatically making sportswear and homeware the most common items. The coronavirus completely changed the market, creating products that had previously been in low demand in high demand. Back in early 2020, no one would have guessed that women's sweatpants, mattresses, puzzles, toys, and other home-use products would suddenly break sales records when classic clothing manufacturers began filing for bankruptcy en masse.
