I'm not. I wouldn't know how to be. I'm still running around in the same sneakers I had in 1995. They're comfy and that's all I care about.
But a lot of the folk in this village can be downright cruel, coming up to me and accusing me of searching around the bins for my clobber. It's not big and it's not funny. We're not rich folk and we make do with what we've got, that's all.

That said, he's just treated himself to a new pair of Hugo Boss combat trousers. I'll get his old hand-me-downs as usual, I suppose. Not that I'm complaining.

What's the trendiest thing you own?

Being trendy to the extreme is part of the downfall of society.

I remember the other day my girlfriend and I were watching some episodes of the comedy sketch show 'In Living Color' from the early 90s, and then we wondered why back then people got away with wearing extremely brightful colors, but now if you go out on the street wearing clothes like that you'll look like a clown.

I personally have less respects for artists who worry way too much about their image and the way they dress up, like Lenny Kravitz for instance (although mostly for the fact that he wears fur).

Personally I love to wear clothes that make me feel comfortable (and not by the way they make me look) but to make me feel physically comfortable myself.

Not trendy at all, I'm afraid. When I'm around the house I'm in jeans and a sweater, and when I get more dressed up I prefer classic clothing that doesn't go out of style, rather than something trendy and flash-in-the-pan.

I'm not very trendy ... or I'm not trying to be. I just wear what I want to wear.

I'm not trendy, I wear whatever clothes are on sale..hehe
But I try to get bellbottom/flares for my jeans..but I NEVER can find any flarey/bellbottomy enough. I want them tight at the top and HUGE flares on the bottom..but that's almost impossible cos if they are huge on the bottom they are usually huge on the top.
I absolutely love my sneakers. They are black arizona's boy sneakers and I went through three pairs of the same exact ones cos I refuse to wear any others. I can't really find anymore like these and they're getting old enough where they are starting to fall apart, but I'll still wear them. Whenever I go out I almost always wear my black hoodie Queen sweatshirt on top of whatever I'm wearing. And I almost never know what to do with my hair so I usually leave it down.

There's nothing worse than being surrounded by people who pay attention at whether you wear brand name clothes or not, and criticize anyone who is just not in what they consider "in style".

Frankly I don't give a rat's ass if someone says something to me for wearing Wrangler jeans that I bought at KMart, or why I'm wearing sneakers from Payless Shoes instead of Nike's.

FUCK FASHION!

As a teenager I was all into labels, but then I grew up and realized what a waste of money!!! This is a BIG problem with people today, and I wish there was a way to change it, but with all the media kids see now days I don't think it'll change. But as for me, I like to keep my style clean, classic, and simple, and that way I can use the same wardrobe pieces year after year. I still wear some shirts that I had over 10 years ago, and they still look up to date.

I think that part of growing up and maturing (particularly on teenagers) means to realize that wearing expensive brand name clothes as well as owning a whole bunch of other material possessions, doesn't mean that if you don't have these things people won't find you cool.

Of course, a lot of kids and teens are just discovering the world and learing to build their characters, but there's of course a huge influence coming from narrow minded, spoiled, rich and popular kids who think that the rest of the people of their age should look up to them for what they have (or more like, what their parents gave them) and not for what they have inside their heads.

Later through life they will realize that nothing makes a person be more cool than not giving a shit about what other people think of you, and not pretending to act or look cool to be appreciated by others.

I don't get to wear my normal clothes that much cos I need to wear uniforms at my Catholic high school. So I only have a few pair of jeans and some shirts and that's it.

My shopping routine: Go to Bob's once a month to once every two months or whenever they are having a sale and look at what's on the clearance racks. I'm mainly into styles that have been out for quite some time anyways.
I also love to mix and match!!

Not to mention that I own A LOT of make up and hardly ever wear it. Rarely, I'll put it on, then I'll think I look horrible and then I'll wipe it off and I'll look worse than when I started.

Being trendy is actually not particularly bad in all terms.

What is absolutely wrong is picking your friends, or making fun of others based on what they wear.

YES! Always have black on, and messy hair is a must! I like the heavy heavy eye makeup, no lipstick look

I love fashion and clothes, but I'm not actually trendy. I'll just wear whatever catches my eye. I'm obsessed with jewelry, though. All my friends say I'm a raccoon because I like anything shiny! ;)

I am DEFINITELY not trendy.

I couldn't care less what other people think of me. I just want to be happy with myself, like what LivingGirl said. If other people like what I wear, find with me. I don't care. If they don't that's their own problem.
