Holidaywear Market: Overview

While the cost of living crisis led to more savvy shopping behaviours, consumers prioritised their summer holidays and spending on holidaywear. Postponed weddings from the pandemic also drove sales of occasionwear. Looking ahead, there will be growing summer garment innovations to cater for rising temperatures.

  • Holidaywear market statistics: 50% of Brits updated their footwear and clothing for summer 2023.

Occasionwear Market: Challenges and Opportunities

Demand for sustainable fashion options

Over two-fifths of Brits are interested in renting items for summer. This number rises among Generation Zers and Younger Millennials and male shoppers.

Renting a holiday wardrobe can be promoted as a sustainable and stress-free way of travelling. It also allows customers to experiment with stand-out pieces for a special trip.

  • Occasionwear market opportunity: 36% of male shoppers ages 16-34 are interested in renting fashion items for summer.

Purpose made garments

While numerous period pant brands currently market swimwear, there is significant potential for fashion retailers to venture into this sector and provide a wider range of period swimwear styles. Additionally, the scope for leak-proof period clothing can be broadened to include sportswear and activewear.

  • Occasionwear opportunity: 69% of young women want fashion brands to sell period leak proof swimwear/shorts.
