A fashion trend is a style, article of clothing or accessory that is popular, and has a good amount of staying power. Trends may not necessarily be evident immediately, but become gradually popular and stay popular. An example of a trendy fashion style is the preppy look. For men, preppy essentials can include a navy blazer, cashmere sweaters, oxfords, a pea coat, and colorful khaki pants.
Trendy fashions can also be fashions that are “hot” but virtually only worn by models and seen on runway shows, at least initially. Depending upon the fashion, and the cost, fashion and style trends can take a while to gain steam and then catch on with the non-modeling elite.
