QBracelet What it does: Fashion meets function via this unisex bangle that doubles as a smartphone charger when you slip it off. Would we wear it? Sure.

Tory Burch for Fitbit Metal Fret Pendant What it does: Let’s face it: Fitbit bracelets aren’t super chic, but designer Tory Burch is about to change that.

LG G Watch What it does: Track your daily needs with this full-color LCD, voice-activated watch. Synced directly with any Android phone (sorry, iPhone users), it works with voice commands where you can ask for flight times, weather updates and movie show times. And oh, yeah, it tells time, too.Would we wear it? Totally. This watch’s slim, simplistic design is comfortable and just as easy to wear as it is to use. Plus, it’s like having your very own personal assistant. $229 at lg.com.

DVF Made for Google Glass What it does: These hi-tech specs designed by Google, but styled by Diane von Furstenberg, can do it all: Make phone calls, shoot videos, receive alerts and navigate your surroundings just by using your voice. Would we wear it? This cutting-edge technology is definitely cool and, thanks to DVF’s elegant frames in a variety of colors, you can feel cool while wearing them. Google Glass attachment alone costs $1,500, so the better question is: Can we afford it? $1,725 (for DVF frames and Glass), at google.com/glass.

We love a smart outfit (our fall fashion style guide is full of them), and this season your look is going to be really smart. Fall 2014 is the season of wearable technology, as it caught the attention of some of our favorite fashion designers (i.e. Rebecca Minkoff and Diane Von Furstenberg, to name a few). Their latest, cutting-edge designs have us convinced: wearable technology is finally in style. From chic Google Glass frames to high-tech watches, these gadgets—most double as jewelry—are worth "geeking" out over.
