About the Belt Report - The Belt Trend Report compiles the latest styles in belt design and construction, from high waist buckles for women to custom leather belts for men. Businesses must recognize that fashion for women differs greatly from their male counterparts, creating demand from both genders. Our report looks at belt trends from both perspectives, whether it is design features on purses and handbags or menswear staples like leather jackets, suede boots or rawhide belts. Finally, we examine how belts are being incorporated into other fashion pieces, creating new items like the belted dress and buckled boots.

Who It's For - Fashion designers, large retailers, small boutiques, stylists and tailors will benefit greatly from our research because it provides a clear view into the minds of today's fashion consumers. Likewise, this report will help marketers and advertisers that want to close the gap in the market audience by tailoring campaigns to consumer interests.

Leverage the data in the Belt Trend Report to enhance products and understand the implications driving change in this niche facet of the fashion world.

Sample Belt Pro Trends - Each Belt PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online belt articles, videos and images. Examples:

Feminized Libation As concepts of cultural gender shift, beer is reformatted for female drinkers Implications - The strict gender roles of years past are continuing to be broken down with reversals like women in the workforce and men as homemakers, but a broader cultural shift towards consumers that are less concerned with how they are perceived is giving way to the feminization of the masculine and vice-versa. As such, the rebranding and consumption of beer as a more approachable beverage for women drinkers is taking precedent, and marking a larger cultural shift towards heightened androgyny in products with unnecessarily gendered associations.

Alcoholic Integration Integrated drink dispensers reflect the need for accessible indulgence Implications - With the party lifestyle of the rich and famous constantly portrayed within mass media, consumers are turning to integrated methods of indulgence to emulate a similar excitement in their everyday routines. By opting for accessible drink dispensers as a method of consumption, consumers are able to transform excess behavior into a more standardized activity, reflecting a shift in traditionally subtle forms of indulgent expression.

Cycle Enhancement High-tech bicycle add-ons combine sustainable living with modern conveniences Implications - With sustainable living often coming across as inconvenient and impractical, retailers are turning to more technologically enhanced approaches as a means to cater to consumers more in tune with modern digital devices. Speaker attachments and smartphone features provide cyclists with more of a modern way to commute around town, combining an eco-friendly source of transportation with the need to stay connected with contemporary comforts.

Blatant DIY Consumers stop hiding the ways that they're creating or modifying fashions Implications - Traditionally, the concept of DIY was to create or augment something as an imitation or enhancement on an original. This notion is going right out of vogue as DIYers proudly opt for styles and designs that are blatantly done by themselves. Bringing a community of consumers that have previously tried to hide efforts into the spotlight, the designs are being bolstered by blogs and social media sites like Pinterest that categorize DIY as a formal fashion trend as opposed to a casual hobby.

Economical Cuisine Minimalist meal carriers cater to contemporary consumers looking to save money Implications - Constantly eating out can often become too overwhelming for cash-strapped consumers, prompting methods to make meals more convenient and cost-effective. Minimalist lunch bags allow consumers to easily pack food through sleek and contemporary carriers, combining practical cost-saving techniques with the adult need for maintaining maturity.

Upcycled Hip Recycled denim products speak to a consumer desire for hip, eco alternatives Implications - With a desire to be perceived more eco-conscious, consumers are choosing upcycled products created from materials like denim to communicate a sustainable ethos as well as keen fashion sense. The utilization of recycled materials decreases brand dependency on new materials, which in turn decreases costs, increases sales and creates a hip, eco aesthetic that appeals to young consumers.
