Sample Summer Fashion Pro Trends

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

Complicated Fable The original purpose of fairy tales is revisited with modern lessons Implications - For ages, fairy tales were used a device to teach children important lessons; in the modern age, the purpose of the fable persists, but the lesson is completely different. Today's fairy tale is packed with more complex lessons than their predecessors -- this is most famously seen with the retelling of Maleficent serving as a tale of non-romantic love and redemption. This speaks to the complexity of today's already-information-saturated child.

Charitable Co-Branding Brands use the popularity of collaborations to show off a charitable side Implications - Celebrities and brands are collaborating to create products and events that serve a socially conscious function. As partnerships tend to attract attention on that basis alone, more brands are using these opportunities as a way to display a charitable side of their company through donation or fundraising.

Soda Upheaval The growing obesity epidemic villanizes sugary carbonated drinks Implications - Health concerns and, furthermore, the battle against child obesity has fingers pointing at soda as an "empty calorie" culprit. As a result, soda is being replaced by more health-conscious alternatives that boast the same strong flavor, caffeine content, and even in some cases, visual branding. This upheaval of a classic American beverage signifies the true strength of the health movement.

Sippable Exotic Intriguing beverage flavors make for small doses of culinary adventure Implications - The rise of foodie culture has the average consumer craving more adventure in their edibles; for some, however, the idea of exoticism is intimidating. Daring drinks allow hesitant almost-foodies to sample adventurous flavor. This also gives those within the food industry a way to test less-predictable flavors within their consumer base.

Tech-Assisted Advertising Campaigns that blend the offline with the online increase user appeal Implications - As more consumers experience their surroundings with a smartphone in hand, brands are looking to engage with them more than ever. A shift towards online and offline advertising that requires device usage supports consumer behavior rather than fighting against it.

Using alternative energy and zero-waste policies to illustrate a commitment to environmental causes, familiar retail settings are taking a more forthright step to showcase participation in environmental issues. This reflects a growing desire to integrate eco awareness into routine, everyday practices.
