Have you ever gone through a phase where you've followed a trend? For example in the 70s were you a hippie or in th 80s were you a punk? Or goth? Do you look back now and regret it? Tell me your experiences.

I've followed a lot of trends, but never when they were particularly trendy. :) I jokingly call myself the goth-punk-hippie-grunge girl, because most of my everyday clothing fits into several of those categories at once. Lately, though, I've been getting more into the psychobilly / hellbilly look, and definitely the steampunk look, both of which are a lot of fun. I just like dressing up, and dressing oddly, so I tend to go for the more out-there trends. :)

In my tenties, & to a lesser extent in my thirties, I followed clothing & hair fashion trends. It was kind of silly, as certain trends did not necessarliy suit me. For instance, high boots didn't suit me, as I am short.

When I was around 17/18 I was very much a hippy and loved the long dresses and the tie dye clothes. Perhaps I was a bit of a late developer in trends but when goth hit the scene I was straight in at the start. I'm still a goth, and still love the music, the clothes, everything.

Yes...to all of the above. Well minus the 70's as I wasn't alive yet. I did the whole 80's thing cause it was the style. I did the goth thing growing up. I did the punk thing. I still get called the "punk" girl even though I wouldn't consider myself that at all..it's just that I'm really not conservative at all. I still have fun hair and fun clothes and piercings and tattoos and stuff. I think it'd be pointless to regret who you were growing up because it's a part of growing up.

I have never followed a trend. The closest would be to wear an appropriate suit and tie to work when it was called for like when there were going to be visitors or for a performance review or some other talk or on business trips. I worked in science and wore very casual clothes because I worked in a lab. In fact I may have started a trend at work at least. I started wearing corderoy jeans to work and several months later it seemed as though all the guys were wearing them. Of course it wasn't all but they did become very common when I had never seen anyone wearing them before I started.

I've never followed a trend. I wear pieces of clothing from different decades, but I've never completely followed a trend. I follow my own style and it's pretty ecletic.
