Basic Instinct

Fashion Innovators Trust Their Inner Style Voices.

Common ground for these two groups is a penchant for denim. According to the Monitor, an overwhelming 87% of Fashion Innovators and 79% of average female respondents like or love denim. Not surprisingly, Innovators own a larger wardrobe of it, claiming an average 25.64 denim garments, compared to a still respectable 17.84 garments owned by women in the general population. Innovators may need more garments, since they wear denim jeans 4.7 days a week compared to the 4.18 days a week for the average female respondent.

With their basic instinct for style, Fashion Innovators are demonstrating a strong future for denim and women of every fashion proclivity would be wise to call upon their "jean-eology" and go long on denim to ensure their style savvy.
