I kinda like the emo look, i think some of the hairstyles are cute and the heavy black liner :D

I think the only 'trend' i've followed was being a 'ska-kid' but it was really just a take on the 'punk rock' look eg: criminal damage shorts/colourful bracelets/ska band patches/bright coloured t-shirts.

I think now i'm a bit older i can't be bothered to completely follow a 'look/trend'! it's effort!
I shop in primark for work stuff, check out tkmaxx for cool t-shirts, i like david& golaith and most of my stuff is from camden market so mix&match really!
I don't really care if one day i'm sk8punk and another i'm normal- it's just what i fancy wearing :)

Ok so... given that fashion has trends but yet you don't want to know about that (although it was the first thing I thought of as well...) want to clarify your original post a little, so I write about what you want? :P

never been a big trend person, but i dig when stuff i like is 'in style' because you can usually find a lot of it cheap, and stock up for when they are back to selling 80's leggings for a year instead of wide leg pants or something..saves hunting through thrift stores or sewing/altering (which is how i get most of my clothing)

a while back when that 'punk rock' style was in (at least around here) before the days of emo (hmm, even just before avril lavign pop-rock styles were in) you could get a lot of black studded stuff..great time to stock up on purses :lol:

depending on where you live maybe trends aren't as obvious? here if you go to the mall, most of the younger women stores always have the same type of clothes at the same time..so there's definite trends around here.

otherwise, i buy it if i like it and pass if i don't
i feel like it's similar to trying to buy black nailpolish and cheap fishnet stockings in stores anytime but october about 13 years ago (yikes, no really i'm not that old)..it was hard to find, maybe only specialty shops would carry them in january...now, thanks to trends out there it's easy to find in any common store, and i don't have to stock up at halloween :) bonus

edit: just read back (i'm tired) to see trends didn't mean fashion?
probably just a difference in opinion here, but wouldn't all those other more in depth 'trends' be a little more like subcultures? and what's BJD? i mean, when you look at fashion mags it talks about latest trends..and they are usually seasonal..though i guess people could drastically change their scene that often, but i thought emo was more like a subculture, like goth, cyber, rivet, etc...

I'm more into the hip-hop urban fashion than anything else. There is a lot of gothic/punk/emo trends that are incorporated into urban fashion. Ah, I'd like to say that I feel sexier dressing in urban than in full clad 'goth'. :D

I am not a fan of PVC, leather, velvet, and really big fluffy monster fur items.

Are we on about fashion trends such as Nautical, 80s, folk etc or are we on about emo/scene etc?

I buy and wear what ever I like. I don't really follow the "in" fashion mainly cos if you aren't stick thin you'll look terrible in it. I enjoy throwing random vintage or stuff from the thrift store in with retail items. I don't really dress to impress, I dress to express ;)

I can't say I have ever followed any trends...

There was stage in Secondary school where I REALLY tried to be like my friends and wear what they were wearing and stuff... That lasted for about a year - and afterwards I realised that there is no point in wearing something if I am going to be uncomfortable in it...

I mainly shop at Op Shops now - I don't think I have bought a "brand new" piece of clothing in a few months now - asides from knickers :P

I prefer to have one off pieces and what not to wearing something that I will see other people wear... Somethings I get and the next day it is part of the latest fashion - last year I was rifling through an uber cheap rack at a local teeny fashion shop and picked up a pair of Leopard print jeans for $6... I'm hearing about people paying up to $90 for a pair like mine 8-)

If I do see something new season that I like heaps, I will buy it, but I usually customise it with some tie dye or UV fabric paint :P

I LOVE clubwear - anything UBER bright, futuristic and ridiculous has my name all over it... And I am the sort of person who will whack in my hair falls, striped blazer jacket, skull top, black jeans and silver platform boots and still think I look cool :P

I'm wondering if the older you get the less you notice trends?

I mean when I was at primary school we went through loads of trends; Pogs, Marbles, Yo-yo's etc etc. (I cant remember any trends from when I was in secondary though I'm sure there were some!)
And if you look what the OP posted as examples: "being emo was a trend, wearing your anime costumes to school was a trend, black rubber braces were a trend" I think thats more in line with what happened when I was at school.
Recently the only trends I've noticed tend to be fashion, or when everybody turned emo :| Maybe I hath become old

I'd definitely say that was true Miss Sami...

When you are younger, friends and fitting in is a HUGE part of your life - so I guess paying close attention to trends and stuff was a good way to look cool with friends..
When I was a kid, it was Marbles, Tazos, Flower Rubber Bracelets, Best Friend Necklaces etc... Theree was even a stage where people were mutilating themselves at one of my primary schools! "Chicken Burns" were VERY popular - though they were one thing I NEVER did... It involved picking a place on your arm and rubbing it really hard and fast with your fingers until you have burnt the top layers of your skin off! The more burns you had - the cooler you were to some people - I thought they were morons. It was SO nasty!

As [some] people get older, I think they realised that friends don't validate everything and learn to create their own path...

I don't think trends are less "there", but becoming more savvy... Kids have gone from fighting over marbles in the playground to battling each other with Yu Gi Oh cards..

i don't, but mainly because i can't afford to buy new clothes every few months. i get second hand clothes normally which i buy maybe once every few months. i occasionally get something that's trendy if i'm with my sister (who is a big fashion freak) but it will probably be cheap! i got a pair of Diesel skinny jeans for £10 in tkmaxx the other day, i wear them with my platforms!

I think you're right.. I can't think of any recent trends other than the emo/scene thing, and that's more because of work than anything else. Scene girls sure do buy a lot of wefts, heh :P

I do sort of follow fashion, though. Has anyone seen pictures of Betsey Johnson's spring line? I can't wait until the diluted versions of that stuff finds its way down to the mall :)

I'm in love with that collection. The prints are fantastic, and the sheer pieces are so beautiful. Looking forward to paying a visit to a Betsey Johnson store! :)

I like how the dresses (especially the ones with the kiddie prints on them) have kind of a 70's vintage thing going on. Like this one:

Couldn't afford to follow trends anyway! It is nice when something you like is in trend and cheap though.
Sooo true!! I worked in a fabric store and a drug store. Mostly the only retail trends I know are when fabric is the cheapest and what type of condom/KY is popular =/..
That's funny and wrong all in one go :lol:

The thing I find with the 'emo' trend is that in most cases from behind I honestly can't tell if a person's a boy or a girl :oops:

TBH I care more about my accesories than my clothes!

Well maybe its also where you are.
Were I am I had more and more people getting in my high school getting tattoos because that was a trend. the more tattoo you had the more of the "badass you where", getting snake bites was a trend. everyone and their mama had snakebites because it was the "in thing". when i went to sally beauty store, green hair dye is always missing because everyone is now trying to have green hair like heath ledger. plus i had tons of people saying pink was the new black and hello kitty was the new skull and cross bone in the underground club. so maybe its a combo of subcultures/trends. idk i was just curious if people fallowed.

I dont think its where I am, I live in a pretty big city so I'm sure there are loads of trends going off - but I'm just not aware of them! ;)
All I was trying to point out, is that once you have left high school (or whatever) you dont notice trend like the ones you are suggesting as much.
I was only trying to create an explanation for everyone writing about fashion trends, and you saying this wasn't what you really meant. :D

I agree too, Once I left school I lost interest in trends or whatever.

as stated previously, I will like whatever I like, wether that be emo, punk, mainstream, hoodies. *shrugs* making it up.. but some things to me, just because i really like something that is populor, doesn't neccesarily make me like trendy things. okay okay with the whole anime scene though, alot of people tend to stereotype otakus as just wapanese kids..

*shakes head* what i mean to say is, don't judge a book by its cover! someone could seem to like something alot, but I think its a good thing sometimes when something becomes mainstream so other people canl like it too,thus having more in common. but also, mainstream can attract the wrong sorts of people (these 'trend follows). I dont think i make sense here >_>;
