Trends vs. Personal Style – Fads Fade but Style is Forever

Admit it.

We either crack-up or cringe as we flip through our high school yearbooks, and see the big hair, over-sized glasses and fluorescent colour trends we wore. Personal style? Not us. We were fashionistas, or so we thought at the time.

But being trendy is not the same thing as being stylish. Time has moved on, and so should you.

Knowing the difference between styles that flatter and fads that fizzle will help you feel fabulous, confident and ready to conquer your day.

Trends are Timely

Trends are outwardly focused. They catch on quickly and become all the rage with millions of men and women. The fashion and marketing industries determine and hype what’s in vogue. You spot the latest fashion trends on celebrities and runways, and in magazines, movies and stores.

Clothes, fabrics, colours, accessories, eyewear, hairstyles, makeup, and more can be the trend of the moment. Think big shoulder pads in the ’80s, scrunchies and tube tops in the ’90s. And don’t forget the pant craze of the early 2000s when words like sassy were written across your assy.
