Style Guide By Julie McCallum

Summer 2022 Trend Report

Defining style is like describing a fluffy cloud – it’s going to look different to everyone. But being aware of popular styles will help you hone in on the colors, textures and motifs that your customers are looking for.

We’ve gathered products that can be considered for five different styles currently found in the gift and home industry to provide inspiration for presenting these trends to shoppers.
