One saving grace for the fashion retail industry may be sizing. The "quarantine 15” is real. As many people navigate attempting to return a sense of normalcy, they’re likely to discover the immediate need to size up in certain areas such as denim, leggings, button down tops and clothing items that are restrictive but necessary. Consumers are also seeking protection, comfort and items that bring an upbeat mood. Historically, in times of war, death and societal mourning, consumers have traditionally gone with structured garments. However, these were also times where spandex either didn’t exist or weren’t popular. These were also times where people had more of a “social status” to keep up as an indicator to how well they were fairing during hard times. Although the same correlations to clothing and social status still exist; the messaging is much different.
