I Don't Follow Fashion Trends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,144 People

    I always follow the fashion trends in other

    countries (in europe mostly) so I'm always one year early with the fashion in America. I don't even count the times I've been told that my style was weird just to see everyone wear the same thing the next year anymore.

    I truely believe that the high waist pants,

    shorts, and skirts are just for girls to be able to show a lot of leg without worrying about having a muffin top. I don't like them or understand how to wear a lot of things that are in stores right now. I don't take fashion risks I just throw on a pair of jeans and a tee shirt...

    I follow only one "Fashion Trend.

    " What I like to wear and feel comfortable wearing is my trend. And it should be for everyone. If we all dress the same, there is no individuality. I don't shop at popular stores or wear trendy things just because I want to "fit in." I go wherever I want to shop, buy whatever I...

    My Fashion Story

    I don't follow all the lasted fashion trends.  For one thing I am older and realize the waste of money involved.  Styles etc. seem to change from season to season.  Even the latest colors worn keep changing. I, personally, like wearing the more classic clothes that are in...

    I prefer long comfy dresses

    and skirts and loose fitting tops with a denim or corduroy blouse. Rather find comfy clothes on sale rather than the current fashion trend.

    Think the UK Fashion is getting out of hand.

    In Essex every guy has the same hair style. With the same outfit. Majority of people have no unique style anymore

    I Wear What ~i~ Think Looks Good

    I don't give a crap about fashion, really. I like to look nice, but my clothing decisions are based on what I feel is appealing. I find a lot of fashion trends just aren't flattering on average people, and some of them even look like crap on the super models. I know a lot of...

    Isn't it ironic how wannabe rebels often

    conform to trends and fashions? Is the difference between naturally alternate people and then those who go to lengths and major efforts to appear alternate?

    I love 80s fashion but people think

    that is bad because the fashion at the time was "cheesy." I find it ironic that modern day trends are recycling 80's fashion. Hmm.

    Are You a "See Me" Clone? Not Me!

    I have never owned anything with a popular label, nor do I plan to. Wow, it seems like everyone wants to be the same. There are certain labels out there that it seems like if you dont have it you are not cool. Coach bags, anything with the names.... Hollister, um guess what...

    I don't follow them for more reasons

    than one. I only have four outfits (four shirts, four pairs of pants, and a couple of sweaters), and I'm comfortable with that amount. Clothes that fit me are exceedingly rare. I honestly don't see the point of 'fashion'.

    I have never followed any fashion trends over

    the years. I love to shop for hours and dress as I want to dress either in a gown, dress, skirt and blouse, shorts and a top, or a bikini.

    I Wear What I Feel Like...

    Some days that means wearing nothing at all! There are times when I simply cannot tolerate having to wear clothing, so I'll hang about at home wearing nothing but a smile :) The goddess provided me with my skin, so I will show it whenever I feel like it. Other times, I'll be...

    Lame

    Acting like a sheep it is. Trying to be one of the typical cool...They make up something and you gotta follow that?... Most of those are meaningless fashion trends or just old thing in a new way...Just wearing simple stuff is my thing.

    I hate following trends!

    !! Why try to follow everybody else and be like them? I just dress like myself and that's all. I express my feelings through my fashion choices. Everyday I wear black. Black is a must for me and I always add a splash of color. Like today for example I dresses in black stockings...

    Absolutely Hideous!

    1) Just because it looks good on some people,

    doesn't mean it would look good one me 2) I wear what I feel comfortable in. Aside from groceries, shopping give me a headache. I avoid it as much as I can.

    Well. If like me you are square shaped.

    You learn fairly early on that fashion tends toward the tall and skinny. So. You make the best of what you have.

    For me, clothes are merely utilitarian.
