Ah, Millennials. The hot-button demographic continues to impress — and worry — merchants, marketers and executives eyeing the generation to secure needed revenue. Nielsen’s “Millennials on Millennials: Why We Matter” report puts the demographic in the driver’s seat to examine their spending patterns and how they view their future as consumers.
“As Millennials age and progress in their careers, more households will be led by this dynamic consumer group, and their purchasing power will grow with them. Across generations in Canada, Millennials are the most financially optimistic, with 28 percent stating they are better off financially today than they were a year ago,” the report said.
As 2018 comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the best party photos of the year. First up, newlyweds Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra in black tie at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show in September.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
