How Is Technology Helping Fashion Lifestyle Brands Connect To Their Human Side

Be human or go home! These words seem to resonate with consumers these days. Although fashion (technological) advancement and its increased adoption thereof may seem to threaten the importance of human interactions, it is most certainly not the goal. The aim of technology is to facilitate the lifestyle of mankind by helping people stay connected irrespective of physical location or difference in time zones. Through the use of technology, consumers are now able to form deep connections with a fashion brand. Different from the past, it now matters less where you are physically and geographically. In fact, with access to technology,

As retailers take precautions to a new level to try to welcome shoppers safely back to stores, consumers are still wary of returning to bricks-and-mortar retail, a new survey says. 

Thirty-two percent of people feel unsafe or very unsafe visiting shopping malls, First Insight found in polling more than 1,200 people on July 10. That’s actually an uptick from 29%, the last time the firm surveyed consumers on April 30, the retail predictive analytics company said. 

That worsening sentiment follows a recent surge in coronavirus cases in Arizona, Florida and Texas. Fortunately, health officials are starting to see some leveling off in these hard-hit states, as people take precautions such as wearing facial coverings when they’re out and about.

The charming fashion blog tracking all your favorite TV outfits

Once a month at the very least, I get nostalgic for the 2011 dramedy, Hart of Dixie. The show is set in the small fictional town of Bluebell, Alabama, it has a stacked cast led by Rachel Bilson, and it crucially features one of the greatest wardrobes I’ve ever seen on television.

Though I only rewatch Hart of Dixie once every few years, thanks to my favorite fashion blog, WornOnTV.net, Zoe Hart’s stylish shorts and Lemon Breeland’s elaborate dresses are available for me to gaze at in admiration and longing whenever I please.

I’ve been visiting WornOnTV since I was a teenager. And at age 27, the blog remains my go-to resource for finding cute clothes I see on TV, getting some fresh wardrobe inspiration, and revisiting memorable outfits from my favorite off-air shows.

COVID-era weight changes mean clothes shopping for a whole new size

When Allison Weiss Brady and Michael Ladin emerged from weeks of lockdown during the pandemic, they needed new clothes in new sizes — for different reasons.

Brady, 49, a charity fundraiser from a Philadelphia suburb, had been pulling back on her candy buying sprees during the lockdown and stepped up the cardio workouts at her home gym out of boredom. She lost 20 pounds and went down two sizes. In contrast, Ladin, 58, of Oak Park, Illinois, gained 10 pounds this past spring after sitting around eating chips and dip.

“I’m not surprised. If I don’t work out consistently, I gain weight,” said Ladin, who works in marketing.

Many Americans like Ladin and Brady are changing clothing sizes depending on how they spent their time sheltering at home. And brands from Levi Strauss & Co. to lingerie label Cosabella are taking note. So are body measuring technology companies, which report

Analysis of shopping trends reveals regional bias of people’s fashion choices

It’s true, Essex girls DO love leopard print: Analysis of shopping trends reveals regional bias of people’s fashion choices (with Geordie men favouring grey jogging bottoms)

  • New analysis of regional shopping trends has found truth in the fashion cliches 
  • Essex girls have a penchant for leather trousers, snake-print heels and faux fur
  • Newcastle men like to wear grey jogging bottoms, a blue hoodie and trainers

It sounds like the crudest of regional stereotyping to say that Essex girls favour leopard print blouses or that Geordie blokes wear grey jogging bottoms. Amber Turner is pictured above on The Only Way Is Essex
