Top Trends of the Week

From Unique Bracelets to Paint-Splattered Furniture

— July 17, 2013 — Pop Culture
The top trends this week were highly unusual, and piqued readers' interest based on the bizarre nature of the innovations featured, like unique bracelets made to look like dentures.

Aside from the bizarre accessories that dominated the top twenty this week, other odd creations this week included illustrations of the Spring Breakers cast re-imagined as Simpsons characters. Approaching pop culture with the same sense of humor, a photography series by Mako Miyamoto made waves featured models going about what looks like an average day with Chewbacca masks on. Purposely odd and confusing, this kind of creativity injects life and interest into the photography world.

For more information on the leading trends in a wide variety of industries, as well as further insights, check out Trend Hunter's Trend Reports.
