Top 100 Pop Culture Trends in July

From Parody Princess Tees to Fantasy Sword Stilettos

— July 31, 2014 — Pop Culture
Disney mash-ups, tributes and products dominate this collection of the most popular July pop culture trends for 2014. The release of Maleficent in May inspired a wide range of products. From high fashion editorials to modern villain makeovers (in which Maleficent is made over with a more contemporary look) and digitized portraits, there is no shortage of ways for consumers to satisfy their appetite for all things Maleficent-related.

Classic Disney films including Pocahontas, Snow White and Frozen also inspired photo shoots -- such as the fairy tale mugshot series -- footwear and cosplay this month. Disney proves its true perseverance and influence as it permeates every industry from dishware to art.

Trend Hunter's Pop Culture Trend Report features more examples as well as additional research of the top July Pop culture trends for 2014.
