Chances are, you have seen the edgy cans as you scroll through Instagram or watch your favorite YouTube videos. This Santa Monica-based startup is now three years old and has raised over $34 million since its inception. Liquid Death sells water from the Austrian Alps that promises to “murder your thirst.” The brand has made quite a splash among millennials thanks to its punk rock marketing strategy. A 12-pack of tallboys costs $16, while a “Hydrate or Die” T-shirt will cost you $26.
There is no denying that millennials still love fast fashion. Boohoo was one of the rare winners of the COVID-19 lockdown, with sales up 45 percent in the first three months of the pandemic. As everyone was forced to stay indoors and shop online, millions turned to Boohoo. The brand sells trendy pieces like clothing, shoes, accessories and more at very affordable prices. The U.K-based online fashion retailer is predicted to continue booming as shoppers look for new styles to wear as the world begins to open up.
Another favorite among affordable, trendy fashion brands is PrettyLittleThing, a subset of the Boohoo group. PrettyLittleThing offers fashionable clothes that are a major hit with young shoppers. With more than 13.1 million Instagram followers, it is apparent that PLT isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The brand is considered the shining star of the Boohoo group, owing much of its success to partnerships with social media influencers rather than traditional advertising. Women shop PrettyLittleThing to feel confident and empowered.
