Do you ever struggle figuring out what outfits to put on your mannequins or how else to jazz up your displays? It can be difficult to nail exactly what will catch people’s eye. Still, there are always places you can look for inspiration to take your displays to the next level. The following are some go-to places or ideas to seek if you find yourself low on items or inspiration.
- Look at Trends
If something is on the market and people love it, there is no doubt people are going to enjoy it if it is available at your place of business as well. See what shoppers frequently come back for, enjoy wearing, or brands that tend to pop up a lot. Your shoppers will definitely enjoy playing up trends and owning items that are hot. Even if catering to a trend does not go as planned, it will give you a better idea of what the public wants and needs in their lives.
- Look at Similar Stores
Now, stealing an idea from them is completely wrong - it is best to be honest and have a unique identity that is all your own. However, there is no reason you cannot see what similar businesses are up to and observe how they do things. It just may spark an idea inside of you, alert you to new trends, or help you notice what makes your business stand apart from the rest.
- Go Seasonal
It may be for a short time, but seasonal items’ shelf life is impactful. There is an established demand, they are relevant products, and your customers will enjoy having relevant items at their disposal. Your mannequins can show off the hottest seasonal trends and outfits in the best way!
- Remember What Works
If an item flew off the shelves before, it will probably do pretty well if you bring it back out again. Of course, it should be seasonally appropriate and relevant! It sold well for a reason, so try to make it a habitually popular product. It is always good to have a solid few products you know will do well time and time again.
- Offer What They Don’t
Do you have products that are unique to your business or not readily available in other spaces? Show them off! Especially if the product is popular or cool enough, people will love getting their hands on something a little more exclusive. Plus, it is an opportunity to make your displays a statement piece that show customers what you are all about.
Finding display trends may seem like an exhaustive process, but it does not have to be something very scary. The tips above will help you find ideas, inspire you, and get your display looking right. Making the most of displays, mannequins, and other visuals your business offers will only bring in more business and success.
