Interactive Retail Stores focus on customer engagement as primary business strategy Implications - When product differentiation is non-existent and advertising goes unnoticed, consumer engagement becomes key in business success. Many retailers are turning to interactive shopping experiences to solidify relationships. Since purchases are often the result of emotions, maximizing a customer's hands-on experience within a retail environment -- whether in a physical store or online -- may increase positive feelings and brand loyalty.

Geriatric Couture Seniors become the anti-fashion inspiration for young people Implications - Geriatric-inspired fashion is gaining ground in both personal and runway style. Looking to their grandparent’s closets, young people are finding madcap prints, old-school crochet and excessive embroidery à la mode. By remixing what was previously considered bland, the modern granny style can be considered anti-fashion for those looking to rebel against more trendy ensembles.

Adult Playgrounds Play areas designed for grown-ups help to alleviate stress Implications - Who says jungle gyms are meant only for children? Adults need some playtime too. Designers are incorporating these grown-up jungle gyms into architecture and public spaces, offering the on-the-go consumer the opportunity to let loose and forget about everyday nuisances. Today’s consumer isn’t afraid to get in touch with his inner child, and with the fast-paced and hectic world in which we live, accessible adult-oriented playgrounds may be just what it takes to relieve stress.

Social Shopping Shopaholics are using social media for networking and retail therapy Implications - To many consumers, shopping can be as much about buying as it is about socializing. Attempting to capitalize on the fact that many online shoppers like to review, network and interact as they shop, online storefronts are adding networking platforms to their virtual operations, while marketers are scrambling to apply social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to their selling tactics.

Democratic Selling Online retailers rely on customer votes to push production Implications - Vote-based selling is gaining momentum in the world of online retail as businesses proactively employ the opinions of their customers. While democratic selling relies on crowdsourcing, it goes one step further by collecting customer votes and basing production entirely on those votes. So, the voice of the customer really is the voice of the customer.

Fairytale Realism Infusing archetypal heroines into modern-day scenarios to evoke empathy Implications - Alongside the resurgence of fairytale themes to inspire nostalgia is its polar opposite, in which traditional storybook characters are brought into modern real-world scenarios. Feelings of nostalgia are replaced with empathy and heightened awareness of the human condition, society and culture.

Rise of the Tease Fashions that rest on the border of risqué Implications - Style-conscious consumers are looking for new ways to spruce up their wardrobes without succumbing to the judgments of eccentricity. An inclination to ride the razor's edge of comfort and decency has led to fashions that are daring and skin-baring yet ultimately escape labels of total indecency.

Cottage Couture Cabin life conveys a toned-down opulence while emphasizing nature Implications - As cities increase more and more in population, the ability to get away from it all truly becomes a luxury. Once considered a vacation for those who couldn’t afford a trip overseas, cottages now serve as the ultimate nirvana. With the end of the recession, consumers make an attempt at being credit-savvy by showing off their money in a toned-down, eco-friendly manner.

Augmented Reality Shopping Virtual interactivity is changing the traditional purchasing experience Implications - The way we shop is undergoing a radical change, as retailers incorporate augmented reality by infusing traditional services with a virtual twist. The augmented reality shopping experience creates an increased ability to test out products and locate places to buy specific items, which may cause a shift in buyer behavior as the physical aspect of shopping becomes increasingly unnecessary.
