From Gender-Neutral Fast Fashion to Athletic Emoji Apparel

By: Jana Pijak - Apr 23, 2016
These April 2016 fashion trends range from nerdy beauty editorials to gender-neutral fast fashion collections like Zara's latest unisex offering. In addition to gender-fluid and androgynous casuals, other standouts include boomer fashionista blogs and transgender sportswear ads that defy societal expectations while crushing gender and age-related stereotypes.

While Accidental Icon -- a 50 and over style blog that promotes daring and high fashion styling -- blurs stereotypes that suggest aging limits self-expression, Caitlyn Jenner's recent partnership with H & M promotes inclusive apparel design and fashion marketing.

Customized warmth jackets, solar-powered charger coats and cost-effective bridal gowns and round off this list of April 2016 fashion trends and appeal to tech-savvy and budget-conscious consumers. While connected apparel is making everyday tasks like staying warm, shopping and charging one's device easier than ever, the rise of cost-conscious wedding attire promotes accessible luxury to those seeking quality at a reasonable price point.
