For those who are looking to come full circle, and don't ever want to be a square, zigzagging zeitgeists are more than a fad. They're a symbol of these off-kilter and unexplored times.

Zigzagging zeitgeists are everything from multi-striped fashion statements to abnormal abodes. They show that crooked, slanted and sideways are often more in line with nature than orderly, normal and neat.

Implications - Moving along the straight and narrow is not how corporations are sustained in contemporary society.

Companies looking to innovate their commodities should incorporate a more distorted perception to catch consumer's attention. Stats for 35 Zigzagging Zeitgeists Trending: Older & Mild
