Trend Report: Cult of Ugly

Jun 28 2019

Dad shoes, sport sandals, and shapeless dresses have flooded the fashion world. Misshapen produce and brown (but delicious) eats are taking over the culinary world.

Young people are increasingly seeking authentic content across categories that flies in the face of perfection, and this trend outlines how brands can capitalize on the ugliness.
