Top 100 Life-Stages Trends in 2015

From Tattooed Senior Photography to Smart Dinosaur Toys

— January 31, 2016 — Life-Stages
These 2015 life-stages trends range from connected dinosaur toys to tattooed senior photos that show two very different sides of elderly subjects. While poignant photography is heavily featured in this collection of ideas, other standouts also include age-specific examples like adaptable bicycles that grow with children and elderly video chat initiatives that promote tech literacy among aging populations while connecting them to their loved ones.

Additionally, these 2015 life-stages trends also include satirical adulthood drawings that poke fun at the responsibilities that come with being a grown up and cartoons that compare the act of caring for a baby vs a pet.

Other standouts range from fashionable youth sportswear lines and even baby clothing collections that borrow their inspiration from upscale and adult styles. To learn more about what appeals to varying age groups, check out our 2016 Trend Report.
