Style VS Trend
Being trendy is totally different from style and thus should be avoided as much as possible. Trends are as a result of personal style that has popular appeal. Fashion elites have been the backbone to numerous trends, trying to control the way people dress terming it the new “cool”.
Style on its own is something personal, and cannot be controlled by what we see or hear, but by our own choices.
Personal style is as a result of an attachment to a certain item and the urge to show off our beauty in a unique way with that item.
Your personal style makes you unique and is a form of expression of your inner and outer beauty. Forget about trends, and base your style on clothes and items that interest you and truly show who you are.
