Every year, it seems like certain pieces of clothing, styles, culture, or color are more popular than others. These trends can easily be followed from year-to-year. But 2020 has been a year like no other. Does that mean that there are no fashion trends this year? Absolutely not! Actually, many of the fashion trends predicted for 2020 were on-point. 

The only difference is that many people are turning to custom apparel and online shopping, rather than picking up their wardrobe staples at the local department store. With that in mind, here are some of the biggest custom apparel trends of 2020. 

Custom Apparel Trends of 2020

With custom apparel taking the fashion industry by storm, let’s take a look at some of the biggest trends of the year. 

1. Bold Logo Designs

T-shirts are always a popular wardrobe staple. But this year, custom t-shirts have been more popular than ever. Not only that, but bold logo designs have been embraced like never before. Bold colors and bright designs take logo t-shirts to the next level and are certainly eye-catching. 

2. Smart Workwear

When fashionistas predicted that 2020 would bring a trend toward smart or casual workwear, they could not have predicted that COVID-19 would be a factor in why men and women turned to more easy fashion. Smart and casual workwear trends include items like polo shirts, which can easily be customized with a company logo. Polo shirts work for men and women and can easily be casual or semi-dressy. 

3. The ¼ Zip Hoodie

Athleisure is a fashion trend that has been on the rise in recent years. In 2020, it became a staple for most Americans. The ¼ zip hoodie is no exception to the athleisure trend. It is stylish and comfortable, and can be easily customized with your brand or logo. Hoodies, in general, are also popular prizes and gifts for businesses. 

4. Retro Hoodies

Nostalgic hoodies have been increasingly popular in recent years. Now more than ever, the retro hoodie is a hot item in fashion. The most popular designs are those that pay homage to the 80’s and 90’s. Popular themes include music, film, and video games.  For reference, check out My Pride Apparel’s Black pride hoodies and sweatshirts.

5. Baseball Caps

Custom baseball caps continue to reign as a hot fashion trend in 2020. There is no specific theme, color, or design that is trending, but rather the item as a whole. Baseball caps can easily be customized for school or business. 

6. Uniforms

Uniforms were trending on the rise at the start of 2020, but then quickly lost momentum due to COVID-19. Schools and businesses were looking at uniforms as a way of saving money and increasing professional appearance. COVID-19 changed the way that schools and businesses operate, however, and now uniforms are not as much of a priority. 

7. Conscious Fashion

Living more consciously and sustainably has been a trending topic for a few years now. 2020 began with more people than ever adopting the ‘green’ way of life. Consumers and businesses can easily find ‘green’ fashion items. Designers now offer products made from recycled or repurposed materials. There are design studios that offer customization and build-your-own product lines. 

Fashion Trends for 2021? 

With pretty much every aspect of society affected by COVID-19, predicting trends for 2021 seems a bit difficult. There’s really no way to tell what the next few months will bring – but there’s no doubt that the events of 2020 will have an impact on fashion for the foreseeable future.
