Being trendy includes originality. It doesn't mean that you follow the present trend means your trendy. It is more of your uniqueness in style. You must put in your personal touch when it comes in the things you really like to show.

Being trendy for me is one that looks cool with his/her fashion style and with nice attitude wearing it. I think it is not necessary that the dress or accesories you were are branded or expensive what matters is that you knew how to wear it in style and that's hip.

True.One should be able to carry oneself well and blind brand following is not necessary at all.:)

I think being 'trendy' to me means following what is currently in fashion, sometimes blindly (ie whether it suits you or not). For me, being trendy isn't necessaily a good thing, and sometimes can turn someone into being a fashion victim in the search for trendiness! Also, some people try to wear too many trends at once! I think style, attitude, passion & confidence are totally different. Being fashionable is similar to being trendy in my oppinion, though i associate tendiness with younger people, fashion with anyone. Style is when someone gets something right, so manye someone will be trendy and stylish if the trend suits them and they wear it well. Attitude to me is more about wearing certain clothes as a statement, but i guess you could have attiduce and be trendy at the same same. Sometime people why try to be trendy perhaps lack confidance which is why they follow trends rather than tyr to create individual looks, so i don't think the two are the same at all.

I think I have my own dressing style.I follow fashion ,but I don't dress up like them.It makes me feel like a statue on display :-P I am the mix and match kind.I should feel comfortable with what I wear and my mind should be off my dress once I am through.It's a bit like the wicketkeeper in cricket.You notice him only when he misses the ball :-P Attitude spells out my dressing sense almost entirely.The best fashion for me is what helps my confidence and I don't feel confident because I am wearring something nice.I rather feel confident when I can be myself and don't feel self-conscious.I think the best fashion comes from the kids who look and feel good no matter what they wear.That's what I call confidence,when you are able to carry a sack on your body as gracefully as a Versace.

I'm allergic to "trendy". To me it means a pack of sheep following a fashion. I've seen more passion in a bowl of corn flakes, and more intelligence. Definitely more sincerity. Trends are promoted modes of expression. They're sales pitches. Like, say, scooters. The scooter itself isn't particularly trendy, (not since 1950, anyway) but made to look as if it is, when it has supermodels all over it. So you can buy a spectacularly overpriced, deformed,two stroke lawnmower with a couple of wheels missing, and be "trendy". Same applies to most trends. Whatever it is, is revolutionary, as far as the target audience, usually the under 24s, know. Look at any trend, then just follow the price tags. You'll find they all started at rock bottom. Much like the sales spiels.

Lol.You've really shredded the word into fine pieces.Lol.Its amazing how many times one gets to hear this word. Can't say much about the lawnmower with its wheels missing,but certainly the rags worn for trendsake and sporting the bottom cleavage is certainly the ultimate and has certainly revolutionised the whole concept of dressing,or,rather,....undressing.Lol

Trendy to me is mostly associated with clothes and the whole image you are present to others. I think I am trendy because I do pay attention to the fashion industry and add a few items every season. But I don't follow the trends blindly because I know some of the items are not flattering for my body and I would just give up following the trend in that particular season.

I like to think so even if I don't see any others following my trends.

What makes me trendy is wearing accessories. I love to accessorize plain tops with a chunky necklace. And I love clothes with beads and sequins.;)
