How to Know What Styles are Trending?

question-marks-005I am here to ask a question regarding Style. I feel that I am always a step behind in the styles that people are asking for, which makes me late on the season for selling that particular style. Am I the only one that feels this way?

Is there some type of List or info that comes out that I am missing , in order to stay up with styles for that season.

Or would I just need to buy more magazines, or be more creative? Help, I am out of answers.

  1. It’s difficult to constantly chase trends. You may sell some, but then if the trend ends quickly you end up with a lot of unsold inventory. If you want to be up on trends check out fashion magazine websites, this way you don’t have to spend too much on buying magazines. I’ve read that keeping an eye on what the female newscasters are wearing is helpful. Are they long necklaces, short necklaces, statement pieces, etc.? It also seems that once a trend has reached a mass produced store like Walmart, it’s pretty much on its way out.

    I agree with Lisa. I have been following trends for several years now and find that they either don’t fit my style or they come and go too quickly. Find what you and your customers like and develop a niche for that market. Good luck!

  3. Pinterest is also a good tool to see what is trending.

  4. Thank you Kelsy, Lisa and Denise I will take your advisement under consideration.

  5. Hi Rose, here’s another thought about style trends. In the town where I live, mainstream trends often don’t catch on here. Also, things that are trendy here are often kind of just a local trend, and aren’t a fad elsewhere. So if you’re selling your jewelry globally vs. locally, the trends may be different.

    Maybe the best approach would be to ask your customers (and prospective customers) what jewelry styles, lengths, colors, metals, etc. they like – and create your own trends for them. 🙂

  6. Thank you Rena, this is great advice right along with Lisa, Kelsy and Denise.

  7. Soap operas. They are always just ahead of the trend in fashion and accessories.
