Sell Apparel for Any Audience: Next Level’s Top Trending Styles
This year has shaken up a lot in our industry, no matter which markets or niches you typically sell to. Even the most time-honored sectors like education and healthcare are seeing huge changes in apparel demand; it’s important to stay one step ahead so you know what to expect. To that end, Next Level Apparel is sharing seven new styles for 2020 along with helpful tips to find the right markets and secure orders.
Audience #1: Retail Brands (or Retail Inspired)
All companies want to keep costs low this year, especially retail stores and small apparel brands. That’s where Next Level’s reimagined tubular tee, the 1800 Unisex Ideal Heavyweight Crew comes in. Finally, there's a premium yet price-friendly T-shirt for businesses with limited budgets or simply want to keep costs low. Inspired by surf and skate culture and featuring a relaxed fit, this streetwear-inspired tee is the one to present to retail brands or businesses that want to make the switch to premium apparel without the price tag.
Audience #2: Athletes & Active Audiences
Athleisure isn’t so much a market within apparel anymore as it is a major influence on garments of all shapes and styles. Knowing this, Next Level combined the comfort of athletic wear with the retail appeal of heathered fabric. The result? The ultimate in sporty yet stylish clothing. Present both the 2021 Unisex Mock Twist Raglan Hoody and the 2022 Unisex Mock Twist Short-Sleeve Hoody to secure orders for any season or client need.
Audience #3: Loungewear Lovers
While we might all have less need to invest in office-appropriate clothing this year, loungewear is really having a moment. As the unofficial quarantine uniform, loungewear is the one apparel category that end-users can wear often, whether they’re working from home or spending time with family. The 8221 Thermal Hoody strikes that perfect balance between comfort and style, and it's made with soft and cozy micro-waffle thermal that’s perfect for transitional seasons too.
Audience #4: Eco-Friendly Fans
Sustainability becomes more important every year, especially as we see firsthand the effects climate change has on our planet. Show eco-minded companies clothing that is both sustainable and stylish with the new 4600 Unisex Eco Heavyweight Tee. Made with sustainable heavyweight fabric and featuring a premium soft hand, this T-shirt feels as good as it looks. And the best part? Each shirt is made from approximately 4 recycled RPET bottles.
Audience #5: Masks for Everyone
Last but not least, we would be remiss not to mention Next Level’s new line of neck gaiters. Virtually any customer is an opportunity to sell this product line, especially as Next Level has gaiters for both adults and youth. Be sure to include the MG106 Next Level Adult Neck Gaiter and the MG107 Next Level Youth Neck Gaiter in your sales presentations for 2020 and looking ahead into next year.
