Trending: Biz-Leisure & Elevated Activewear
Styles that move like activewear but are classic like business wear have become the staples of 2020. Staying comfortable while looking professional has become a necessity in the eyes of modern professionals. The increase of remote work culture and athleisure trends has resulted in a hybrid style that will stick around for seasons to come.

Take a blast to the past with retro inspired pieces, such as vintage style speakers and 80s neon. An influx of re-purposing and re-using fashion has brought vintage style to the front lines. Bring the nostalgia and stay on trend by incorporating retro elements into your new styles.
Trending: Lived In
We're loving styles that have a "well loved" look. Hoodies that have a washed fade and accessories with a slight distressing bring a trendy touch to any wardrobe. Incorporate this trend by choosing heathered fabrics and faded colors.
Trending: Color Blocking
Color blocking is a fun way to bring excitement and contrast into your swag. You can color block with muted earth tones, or color block with vibrant, bold colors. Either way, use this trend to bring an unexpected twist to your merch.
Utilizing textures as prints is a great way to stay on trend and modernize your accessories. Influenced by the rawness and natural patterns in nature, wood prints are a refreshing yet chic theme.
