16 Amazing Items of Clothing We Will Wear in the Future
People always wonder what the future will bring them: what food they will eat, what type of vehicles they will use, and what clothes they will wear. We at Bright Side found out about the types of clothes we’ll be wearing in the future. Some of them are so high-tech, it feels like they came from sci-fi movies!
16. Seamless wear
Some designers believe that in the future we might dress in seamless dresses that will be easy to put on and take off. The question remains whether the weather conditions will allow us to dress like that.
15. Spider dress: personal space dress
If you don’t like crowded places, especially in rush hour, then this spider dress is what you need. Its creator is sure that it can easily become a personal favorite for many women.
14. The ultimate travel jacket
People who love to travel without luggage will definitely appreciate this jacket, designed to serve as a “backpack” on the go. The future might hold even better versions for us — imagine having all of your luggage stored in just one coat!
13. Superflex powered clothing
Imagine doing physical therapy after injuries that will consist of exercising and wearing a hi-tech bodysuit. This bodysuit is designed with a sensor and conductive technology, which will allow patients to get back into their best physical form. Exoskeletons and hi-tech wearable bodysuits are the future of clothing for many of us.
12. The solar windbreaker
As humanity enters an age where we must search for alternative energy sources, a windbreaker that is powered with solar panels might become a lifesaver for people who want to charge their devices on the go.
11. Gaze-actuated wearables
The designer of these 3D-printed wearables believes that in the future we might want to wear something that responds and changes its shape according to the gazes of the people around us. People might as well find a practical application for this type of technology in clothing.
10. Enflux exercise clothing
Enflux training clothes analyze a person’s body and provide 3D imaging to a digital coach. This is the new personalized training experience we’ve all dreamed about for so long.
9. Synthetic bioskin dress
Imagine wearing clothes made of biomaterials that help you stay cool in summer and warm in winter. This technology enables clothes to be sustainable to the environment as well.
8. NASA Mars spacesuit
In the future, interplanetary travel will be a daily reality for many people. This spacesuit, designed by NASA as a prototype, will become a daily outfit for the astronauts and people who will make Mars their new home. We hope this one will be easily fixed if anything happens to it like to Matt Damon’s character in The Martian.
7. Bioengineered spacesuits
But what if we didn’t have to wear all those bulky clothes and could instead put on these out-of-this-world beautiful bioengineered spacesuits? The idea behind this suit is that the bacteria used in it will produce chemical reactions and allow a person to adapt to a different planet’s environment and atmosphere. How cool is that?
6. Kinematics-based dress
The creators of this dress were so inspired that they even developed new software and technology to make it happen. The dress is composed of thousands of small petals that are 3D printed from nylon plastic. The petals are interconnected and make up a “continuous textile.”
5. Smartphone jacket
The future is now. The Levi’s® Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard™ by Google allows you to answer your smartphone by tapping on your jacket’s sleeve. Next thing you know, we will all have underwear that answers calls or makes video-chatting possible.
4. Welt, a smart belt
Who said that only clothes can be technological and futuristic? Accessories can and will become very important future tech-wearables for people. This belt provides health information to its owner and tracks how well he feels throughout the day.
3. Living shoes
Everlasting biotrainers might look like this. The “ingredients” for such shoes will allow for overnight self-repair.
2. Back to the Future self-lacing NIKE shoes
Remember the self-lacing Back to the Future Nike shoes? We all wanted to get a pair of them. Well, Nike produced 89 pairs of these shoes for the 30th anniversary of the movie. They were sold in a lottery, but Nike went as far as incorporating this technology into its MAG line. Now you will be able to save time by not lacing your sneakers every time you leave the house.
1. The Fifth Element outfits by Jean Paul Gaultier
20 years ago, Jean Paul Gaultier designed thousands of outfits for the hit sci-fi movie The Fifth Element. The bandage bodysuit was inspired by Gaultier’s underwear-as-outerwear collections. Milla Jovovich remembered that it felt awkward to wear that small piece.
Now that you’ve seen some of the clothes of the future that might be in stores soon, share with us what you think about them in the comments.
