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

Refined Rebellion The concept of edgy is given a sophisticated overhaul to diversify appeal Implications - Incorporating the rebellious attitudes of young people into mainstream fashion, designers are merging the idea of edgy with more sophisticated elements. These examples signify a more cultivated view of youth culture, and appeal to millennials who are seeking to stand out from their peers.

Collegiate Couture Brands glamorize back-to-school clothing and supplies with a grown-up appeal Implications - Young consumers are seeking to be perceived as mature, which is being addressed by brands that are tailoring school-oriented products and clothing to be stylish beyond their years. The glamorization of teen routine is creating a market demographic more attuned to adult life, and more open to designs and products previously perceived as too adult-oriented.

Handicraft Aesthetic Crochet-like goods flood the market to meet consumer demand for authenticity Implications - Traditional pastimes like crocheting hold a nostalgic place in consumers' minds, which brands are using as design inspiration to resonate with consumers on an emotional level. This preference for a kitsch, handmade design highlights a shift backwards towards simplicity in design, and helps brands communicate a more trustworthy image.

Wardrobe Reversal A growing emphasis on individuality sparks consumers to use pieces unexpectedly Implications - Disregarding norms and customs, consumers are using everyday clothing in new and unconventional ways. Going beyond elements of design, individuals are choosing to wear items like sweaters and shirts in ways that don’t conform to the norm. This signifies a shift toward more atypical means of expression.

Social ChildGood Generation Z puts its best foot forward with youth-targeted philanthropy Implications - Unlike previous youth generations, Generation Z has knowledge of all sorts at its fingertips which, as evidenced by people like Tavi Gevinson and Cameron Cohen, allows them to acknowledge and contribute to global issues. As a result, many social organizations are targeting initiatives toward children to not only capitalize on the information age, but build a future generation of philanthropists.

Commuter Fandom Public transportation becomes a point of pride for urban consumers Implications - As the shift of consumers living in urban communities increases, more people are reliant on public modes of transportation and are unable to own personal vehicles. Consumers are adapting to this shift by using public transportation as a means of self expression to convey patriotism to their city and a support for eco-friendly alternatives.
