Dear Poll: Do You Follow Trends?

With a new season comes new trends. If you're a magazine junky like me, it's pretty hard to avoid reading about the new it bag or the trendy new color that'll be hot for the season. While I like to think I have my own unique style, it's inevitable that I pick up a few new habits every season, however some people take trendy to a whole different level. For instance, skinny jeans or leggings are just not made for everyone, yet women still wear them because they're "in" despite how they look. Same thing goes for platform shoes, black nail polish, oversized sunglasses, or brining back an old look — it's either your style or it's not. So ladies, even though it's fun to be hip and with it, what I want to know is, do you jump on the trendy bandwagon or do you like to express your individuality by going against the trendy grain?

It all depends on what looks best on me, and it has to be reasonably priced,too!

If it's a trend I like I will. If it's stupid then no way. I'd rather be uncool than look stupid and regret it later.

i cant afford to be too trendy; a piece or there but most of my closet is filled with staples.

I like to follow sunglasses and nail trends because it's fun and cheap and if I decide I don't like it I'm out like ten bucks. If I already have pieces that work with a trend I'll try them out. For instance, I have a lot of black clothing and a long string of pearls, so I'll probably rock that one once this season, though that's kind of a timeless trend. I also follow trends by accident, like my mom brought me back a purple purse and gloves from Florence and now the magazines are all screaming about purple leather goods and I'm like, "okay."

I have my own style, and I'm usually the one starting a trend without being aware of it. Then it's kind funny and mostly irritating being copied. If, a trend is good looking, and I really love it...I'll defintiely wear it. But, I've never been the type to wear every trend at one time, or wear a trendy item that's absolutely hideous...even if everyone under the sun is wearing it and thinks it's beautiful. Ugly is ugly and pretty is's not to hard to tell.

Sugarsister - I agree with you about the horses - I only foot the bill for one, and I would so love to have a $100 pair of shoes every six weeks...but honestly, I wouldn't trade the boarding, shoeing, showing, and vet bills for anything :smile:

Um, I think I would be a lot more trendy if I could afford to be...I go out sometimes and see these girls, and I'm like how can they afford that?? I make good money, but I guess the older you get, things like mortgages and car payments take precedent over fashion unfortunately.

i don't like following trends. i prefer to purchase simple classic pieces that'll last awhile. occassionally, i'll get something "trendY' from forever 21, but that's rare, and not a significant dent in my wallet.

I will get into trends early (as early as I can), but as soon as everyone else catches on, I'll move on. For example....I was wearing tights under long shirts and dresses in 2006...but now that everyone and their mom is doing, I really can't bring myself to do it that often. Same goes with ballet flats and wedges.

Depends on what the trend is. I'm pretty low key with my clothes and like to stay casual, so if it doesn't fit with my current style I won't wear it. I do not like the leggings look. And 90% of people who wear skinny jeans shouldn't. Two great examples of fashions that don't do any justice to those who wear them!

I'm pretty lame - I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl - but I just can't afford to buy into trends all the time. I also hate to look like every other girl out there and prefer to make my own way rather than jump on the bandwagon (and almost nobody looks good in leggings - Lindsay Lohan I'm looking at you!)

Only if I like it and then put my own twist on it. I like to be original.

It all depends how they loon on me, and how expensive they are! Like skinney jeans...I don't mind the trend, but in my opinion they look horrible on me soooo I don't wear them!

I don't have the money to do that. I buy clothes only a couple times a year, and then it's usually something that I need. We're all influenced in some way by trends, even if we don't intentionally follow them. But there are so many different types of trends out there.

I think part of the fun of fashion is the trends, so I'll join in if I like it & it's flattering on me. I don't spend a lot on trendy pieces though. I also don't wear more than one trend at a time or wear trendy stuff every day. Nothing worse than looking like a slave to trends.

I don't do trends that much unless it really has staying power because I just don't have the funds to keep stocking my closet every season or the energy to keep up.

i try to keep the cost minimal on trendy stuff, and in general i wait until i get used to a particular look before wearing it skinny jeans...i just couldn't get behind those at first...same thing for capris waaaay back when they became cool...but now i wear both all the time the big sunglasses thing though...well, that's my signature move!

I usually buy two or three trendy pieces per season, but won't pay a lot for them so I don't feel bad about donating them after a short time. The rest of my wardrobe is very classic, and I won't wear a trend that doesn't flatter me.

I pretty much put on a hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and my northface everyday. i would like to dress cute more, but all i do is go to class in crappy ohio weather.

I'd say I fall somewhere between trendy and classic... some trends are best left in the mags or runway for me

To me, trends are a fun way to try something new. I'll definitely give a trend a chance by going to a store and trying it on, but if it doesn't look good on me I won't buy it just because it's the in thing.
