Wearable Tech Gadget-infused accessories make for easy connectivity Implications - Making their way into the hearts of the fashionable and geeky alike are stylish, hi-tech accessories that can do everything from monitor your blood pressure to control your iPod.

Shabby Chic Couture Pre-distressed materials offer consumers a sought-after edge Implications - What is typically associated with everything shabby has taken on a new form in the market. It now costs big bucks to buy products with already distressed-looking materials. Shabby-chic fashions—with high prices—give consumers an edge to set themselves apart, yet allow them to maintain a high-fashion look.

Wearable Multitasking Hi-tech watches that perform more functions than simple time-telling Implications - Today's on-the-go consumers are constantly looking for products that will help them multitask, and one area in which multi-functionality may influence purchasing decisions is watch design. Because watches can be worn, they provide a convenient method of storing data, connecting to friends, making payments and more. Saving people the time and trouble it takes to find similar functions and apps on their computers, phones or tablets, these built-in features appeal to time-starved consumers searching for convenience in their day-to-day lives.

Style Over Tradition Even the most conventional product categories are changing shape Implications - Even in some of the most traditional sectors, style is becoming more important than function. Luxury timepieces used to be a static product category, with only a few brands and classic designs representing status. However, modern design and cutting-edge technology are evolving style far beyond the status quo.

Aviation Appeal The 'fly boy' becomes a major theme in fashion and photography Implications - There is something inherently exciting, and at the same time romantic, about aviation-inspired photography. Photographers, designers and marketers are quickly recognizing this and are infusing advertising and fashion content with 'fly boy' inspirations, hoping to appeal to the consumer desire for excitement and adventure--even if it is experienced on the pages of a magazine and not in real life.
