It seems that stars like Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan, and Hayden Panettiere were ahead of the fashion curve when they were sporting over-the-knee boots a few months ago.

Taking a commodity and making these slight changes appeals to consumers because they find comfort in recognizable artifacts. However, the selling power comes from making small adjustments to give these commodities cutting-edge originality.
