In 2019 Utility fashion trend is making a strong appearance at the street and on the catwalks as well. Utility fashion appears in two significant style variations from utility vest, cargo, utility shorts, utility shirt, and utility jackets. Streetwear fashion is craving for the utility vest style among adult and youth women and men buyers.

The reason for the emergence of utility street fashion is due to an outcome of the lifestyle change induced by the roving lifestyle. Nomadic mindset consumers are invariably on the transit and they don't want to carry additional heavy bags. 

The trend evolved in numerous application into different clothing categories such as bottom-wear as a cargo, sports jackets, shirts, knits, and vests. Utility vests are the top-performing category as spotted during the men's 2019 catwalk season Spring-summer 2020 and at the streets of Milan, London, Paris and New York. 

The new inclination driving millennial’s about exploring the world has developed a new cultural change we could call them the Modern Nomad. The sharing-economy trend has helped people to migrate, visit distinct regions and encounter unique things. This has motivated businesses to come up with new marketing modules to support these travelers to share things rather than owning it. 

Based on our Forecast Modern Nomad we have observed the growth of two types of hippies. Currently, people are turning into digital nomads and health-conscious travelers. Millennials find it pleasant to work from anywhere and at any time or they look for the adventurous journeys.

Health-conscious travel is on the rise and several travel companies are proposing new offerings for tourists to support their well-being on the road. 

This is not shocking when you consider the growing trend of health and wellness in general – for example, over 50% of Americans are now getting the recommended amount of exercise per week. In response to the growing demand for health-conscious travel, Intrepid Travel is adding six new cycling tours to their existing range next year, including in Bali and Peru.

Lifestyle demands will further take new forms and shapes while designing the collection. Pockets detailings will be transformed into an essential part of the design development. The idea will spin throughout to present the pockets look valuable as well as it should supplement the creative exaggeration.
