Adaptable Apparel

Children’s clothing incorporates expandable features for longevity

Implications - To mitigate the problem of children quickly outgrowing their clothing and shoes, brands are reimaging such items to grow with the child rather than being repeatedly replaced. These products highlight how brands are providing functional alternatives to the typical volume of products parents purchase, to better appeal to both eco and cost-conscious parents.
