As the price of cotton continues to increase, shoppers will see clothing prices rise as much as 10 percent in 2011.
The price of cotton has doubled in the past year which explains the different fabric blends in clothing to cut costs, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.
The high demand for synthetic fabrics, though, caused prices to rise 50 percent, the Star Tribune said.
Shoppers can expect to see more synthetic fabrics and less embellishment and color choices in clothes, Newsroom America reported.
Brands such as Levi Strauss & Co., Nike, Steve Madden and North Face, along with almost all others, expect to see inflated prices.
Cotton prices began to escalate in August 2010 when bad weather stunted cotton harvests internationally.
