It’s not difficult. I think most people accidentally follow trends because they just buy what they want in the shops and, of course, the shops only sell the latest trends.
I don’t think American Apparel really sell anything trend-led though. They just sell their own thing and it has become a trend because of their popularity. I know a lot of their items have been available for years so they’re not changing stock with the season.
I don’t care and just wear what I like to wear, regardless of the trends.
If you really want to know, then you should read fashion magazines. They will tell you what the next trends will be months in advance, way before the shops start stocking new season’s items.posted over 4 years ago
Trends are usually determined by runway shows. If, say, four major designers all used color blocking in their runway shows for any given season, the fashion magazines would tell their readers, “Color blocking is huge for this season.” People will be able to buy color-blocked garments both from the original designers who used them and more affordable stores, who take a cue from them to know what’s on trend.posted over 4 years ago
Becky hit it right on the nose, most people follow trends by buying things from mainstream shops, and mainstream shops only carry the current trends. There are those who follow the RTW runway shows and purposefully follow trends, but most just go with what they like.
Me, personally, I tend to lean towards whatever tickles my fancy, which is almost always something someone British is wearing. So, I guess I go with whatever is big in Britain, disregarding that I’m American.posted over 4 years ago
I mainly either go through different style blogs, watch youtube beauty bloggers vids or read Company magazine which has an update every month of the latest trends – high street edit – where three members of the fashion team talk about their fave trends of the month and how to achieve that look.posted over 4 years ago
