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:

Prehistoric Aesthetic Brands adopt designs reminiscent of dinosaurs to satiate primordial interest Implications - No longer just of interest to those who study paleontology, references to dinosaurs and archaic animals are emerging within mainstream culture to satiate obscure interests. Integrating prehistoric references into fashion labels and even interior decor, brands are using primordial designs to not only add a sense of novelty, but also to showcase an element of fearlessness and strength often associated with animals that roamed the earth thousands of years ago.

Doodle Packaging Brands turn to packaging designs reminiscent of kids artwork and drawings Implications - Recognizing the need to target youthful consumers in a more approachable manner, brands are turning to packaging designs that are reminiscent of artwork that kids would actually produce. Featuring sketches and doodles of animals and insects, brands are using imagery that kids can identify with, reflecting a need to connect with consumers, particularly those of a younger age range, in a more authentic manner.

Plus-Size Positivism Consumers search for unique ways to feel good about their bodies Implications - Body acceptance still has a long way to go before it will reach the mainstream, but that hasn't discouraged plus-size consumers from searching for new ways to feel good about themselves. Whether it's enjoying user-generated content on the Internet or supporting body positive brands, consumers are taking a more positive, pleasure-based approach to self-acceptance.

Whimsical Retail Brands increase interest through over-the-top retail displays Implications - Bringing an exciting element to routine shopping experiences, playfully designed retail displays are being adopted as a way to generate interest and engagement with products. By adopting over-the-top designs more reminiscent of an amusement park than a grocery store, retail locations are able to better compete with the convenience of online shops by offering an experiential element.

Anti-Tech Packaging Tech product packaging evolves to reference a simpler time Implications - The world of technology is advancing at such a rapid pace, it can be overwhelming. Instead of alienating consumers with futuristic aesthetics, brands are opting for packaging that references a simpler time. Retro-inspired packaging not only draws upon the power of nostalgia, it also makes tech products more accessible for those with less tech savvy.

Astronomical Aesthetic The planets become a source of design inspiration Implications - As a backlash to the over-processed, ostentatious visual style of recent times, many consumers are craving something more naturalistic and mysterious. This, combined with a growing interest in the otherworldly, has created an obsession with the astronomical aesthetic and the intrigue of what else is out there.

Exotic Minimalism Consumers incorporate a streamlined touch of exoticism in their wardrobe Implications - At one time, using the word "exotic" in a fashion context conjured images of outrageous prints, sensational colors and a generally over-the-top aesthetic. Now, consumers who are committed to a minimalist approach to fashion are searching for ways to add an exotic flair to their wardrobe without compromising their existing sense of style. Adding small doses of busy patterns to streamlined garments and accessories reveals that consumers are continually adapting ephemeral fashion trends to suit their own long-term aesthetic preferences.
