Sample Accessories Pro Trends

Each Accessories PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online accessories articles, videos and images. Examples:

Outwerwear Eccentricity A desire for individuality prompts outerwear with personality Implications - As the luxury market continues to expand and consumers focus more on aesthetic than function, brands are looking to fill the gap with garments designed with eccentric style and warmth in mind. This shift towards functional fashion with a sense of personality speaks to a desire for individuality and quirk.

Blatant Faux Fake fur provides mental and physical comfort in more than just clothing Implications - Though physical comfort is still important to consumers, the desire for a clear conscience has consumers seeking alternatives to luxurious, but often cruel fur. This ushers in a wave of faux fur that is so pervasive it is penetrating industries beyond fashion. Consumers are wearing their faux fur badge with pride, un-intuitively going against the glamorization of "authenticity" in favor of passive activism.
