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

Cinematic Nostalgia Tributes to classic cult movies aim to open up nostalgic features to new eras Implications - While new and improved innovations in tech and media often provide a refreshing take, futuristic concepts are often hard for consumers to relate or connect with. Utilizing cult movie classics as promotional mechanisms or packaging techniques provides a sense of familiarity that consumers can instantly recognize, combining nostalgic pop culture references with the need to market through more emotional means.

Gamification Video game decor showcases a turn toward broader product appeal Implications - With businesses looking to expand their market audiences beyond projected demographics, techniques of merging designs into other retail areas offer ways to gain mass appeal. Video game references in home decor meets a demand for both nostalgic references and eclectic decor, opening up the video game market to more than one audience. This showcases the constant expansion of products into diverse markets.

Pajama Chic Sleepwear-inspired fashion and footwear appeal to desire for comfort Implications - Every few seasons, fashion takes a very comfortable approach, with designers embracing softer fabrics, looser cuts and athletics-inspired styles. This season, the direction was toward sleepwear, including tops and bottoms crafted of smooth silk with pajama-esque patterns as well as luxe, velvety slippers. More and more fashion consumers are placing comfort above style, but merging the two ensures we can get the best of both worlds.

Urban Tot Hipster kids apparel for the children of hipster parents Implications - For urban adults embracing hipster culture, there is likely a natural tendency to pass on their love of hipster clothing and products to their children. Thus, we are seeing a wave of kiddie hipsterwear, with more designers creating edgy and hipster-inspired outfits specifically for tots and the youth. Kids today are definitely more stylish than their counterparts from previous decades -- thanks in large part to their image-conscious parents -- and now they'll be cooler, too.

Modern Wanderer Gypsy-inspired fashions offer a glamorous, free-spirited aesthetic Implications - The image of the gypsy is associated with enchantment, mystery and allure, all of which designers are translating into contemporary couture. Creating looks based on luxe, printed headscarves, chunky gold jewelry and full, floor-sweeping skirts, designers are providing the modern fashion consumer with the chance to feel like a beautiful, free-spirited wanderer -- a welcome divergence from the more corporate and clean-cut aesthetic dictating today's attire.

Collegiate Chic School-inspired fashions offer a fresh and young way to dress Implications - The schoolgirl look has always been a favorite -- of both men and women -- but today's school-inspired fashions are centered on fresh preppy looks, rather than (sexy) innocence. These collegiate-inspired fashions, which range from plaid blazers to striped cardigans and colorful separates, provide a youthful appeal that consumers find refreshing and fun, especially when other designers are focusing on more serious, somber and monotone styles.
