Article at a Glance:
Being in the retail business for all these years gave me the opportunity to meet countless numbers of people. I surveyed a bunch of people to understand what people thought was in style.
2020 was an epic and eventful year. It was certainly the most transformative year in my life second only to 2001.
Everything as we know it will be radically different post-2020. Especially in the retail sector.
There’s a bunch of things I think are really and I compiled that list as well. However, I think it’s equally important to contemplate “the uncool list'' to make sure we are always on the right side of timeliness.
