Sample Outerwear Pro Trends

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

Customized Play Brands are developing toys that allow children to flex their creative muscle Implications - The maker culture movement may be just beginning to flourish for adult consumers, but DIY has always been an area of interest for children. Brands are capitalizing upon young consumers' desire to create by offering them full opportunity to customize products. Rather than making throw-away art, children enjoy the opportunity to create something they can put into use later.

Sophisticated Routine Consumers are seduced by the sophistication of routine memberships Implications - Membership-based services, such as communal workspaces or fitness centers, are glamorizing participation by adopting sophisticated aesthetics. By elevating their interiors, these services transform often unpleasant tasks, like working late or exercising, from mundane to enjoyable. Improving the design of the physical spaces also increases the perceived prestige and exclusivity of activities that would otherwise be considered routine, ultimately motivating consumers to keep returning.

Collaborative Membership Shared workspaces entice members with social benefits Implications - Rather than prioritizing individual ownership, the share economy promotes the collaborative consumption of goods and services, including shared work spaces. Beyond the sharing of physical space, these memberships entice consumers with the promise of fostering a sense of community and collaboration, suggesting that shared creation is just as important as shared consumption in this socio-economic model.

Galactic Couture Fashion brands adopt interstellar references for mass pop cultural appeal Implications - Recognizing the cult following behind sci-fi movies and TV shows, fashion brands are turning to galactic design to extend market appeal. By referencing otherworldly themes and space-age styles, brands are capitalizing on the popularity of futuristic aesthetics to not only add visual allure, but also connect with buyers in a more contemporary way.

Wearable Security Seeking to diffuse threatening situations, consumers turn to wearable devices Implications - Anticipating whether a situation could become dangerous can be taxing, prompting many consumers to turn to wearable devices to instill a sense of security wherever they go. Designed to mimic ordinary accessories, wearable security devices detect and mitigate potential threats in a way that is direct, yet unobtrusive, suggesting that consumers are looking to integrate security measures into their everyday lives as discretely as possible.

Incentivized Style Mobile fashion platforms promote loyalty services and rewards Implications - Fashion brands are replacing brick-and-mortar stores with digital platforms that attract tech savvy consumers in search of exclusive offers. Loyalty rewards programs and specialty points help companies attract and retain clients using new style-specific tools or platforms. These concepts are also in line with today's coupon culture and private retail deals that come with contemporary subscription plans.

Digitized Wardrobe Consumers turn to smartphone apps for curated closet displays Implications - Online fashion platforms are releasing curated digital closet concepts.

These features benefit retailers with a tech-savvy consumer base drawn towards digitally-enabled features that are unavailable in-store.

Designed Dessert Consumers search for efficient forms of personalization in food Implications - DIY culture may be thriving, but many consumers don't have the time to make their own goods. Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity for customization, consumers are turning to services that let them design, as opposed to make, their own desserts. Ultimately, consumers still want to be involved, on some level, in the creation of their goods.
