Blunt Romanticism

Contemporary expressions of affection take on a frank tone

Implications - In contrast to flowery, over-the-top expressions of affection is an emerging segment of blunt romanticism boasting a notably frank tone. A turn towards all things forthright is being well-received by Generation Z consumers, who tend to hold more realistic worldviews. A fondness for realism among digital natives holds great opportunity for brands wishing to communicate with and connect to this group.
