Well that really depends on the people you're marketing to doesn't it?
The early late 80's - early 90's hipster trend still seems to be going strong and seeping its way into pop culture.
Both my assessment (of the current) and prediction for the coming seasons is "irony chic'. Not in the sense of pathetic slogan t-shirts, more that girls who can pull of tattered leather, tank tops of 80's metal bands they haven't heard a song by and a continuation of shaved hairstyles and spiked but not gothic accessories.
On another note, In terms of outerwear I think refined styles of hiking/outdoor wear are going to see a rise over the next year. People like to make a statement about being well travelled but still look good.
Element did a jacket recently that was moving in that direction, the subtle details like fastening cords that don't actually fasten anything, my case in point for the idea that people like to appear like they're travelling, but clean cut bohemians.
