Sample Boots Pro Trends

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

Sophisticating Baby Infant aesthetics go from cartoonish to chic Implications - Minimalist baby design speaks to a happy medium between the popular fad-based, Internet-heavy infant aesthetic, and the classic cartoonish, childlike look of animal-inspired, pastel-hued pieces. This more sophisticated look accommodates the need for something modern and age appropriate, yet still fitting to an adult aesthetic.

Artisan Infant Handmade clothing for infants adds a more trustworthy feel Implications - Naturalism and safety take precedent when parents choose clothing for babies, creating a need for artisan infant apparel. Handmade clothing communicates a feel of extra care that suits parents well. This speaks to the values of modern parents, who would rather steer clear of mass manufacturing.

Feminizing Rugged Women pursue strength and challenge in exercises Implications - In the past five years, the battle for gender equality has reached new heights with some of pop culture's biggest icons speaking openly about feminism. This pushes women to seek new challenges in all facets of life, including within athleticism and fitness. The gears have switched from exercises that promise prettiness, to those that boast strength building.

Animal-Free Festivity Traditional holiday recipes are augmented with the vegan consumer in mind Implications - Meat-free consumers are rebelling against turkey and dairy-laden goods by switching up traditional ingredients to make holiday meals more sustainable. As the health boom encourages consumers to think more critically about nutrition, vegan versions of holiday fare make cuisine more applicable for all.

Winterized Couture High fashion products get a cold weather overhaul to satisfy need for function Implications - Cold weather apparel is associated with a bulky, utilitarian aesthetic, which is something brands are combating against with high end fashions designed with function and fashion in mind. As consumers come to expect style but require more to be intrigued, the incorporation of functionality seals the deal.

Generational Footwear Instead of fit or function, brands use time periods as inspiration Implications - Although the cyclical nature of fashion is nothing new, brands are using the quintessential aesthetics of specific generations -- past or future -- in design for aesthetic appeal. This approach to design targets consumers more concerned with aesthetics rather than functionality.
