Sometimes, but usually not.

What kinds of trends? Fashion, pop culture, music, movies, tv?

I'll vaguely follow fashion, but put my own twist on it - I'm studying fashion design in school anyway, and people take me more seriously if I'm well-dressed, which I don't understand... it's more about what's in your head than what you wear, anyway. I'll only follow trends if I like them, and extend them far past the point when they become unfashionable.

As for everything else, I ignore it and just consume what I like. It's better to stay true to yourself.

Yet even the most obscure things can eventually become trendy.

No, and have no interest in doing so. If something makes sense I will do it... trends normally do not make sense.

If I follow a trend, it is because it is something I want to be involved in. Other than that, no.

I like to be AWARE of the trends.

Let's say it's clothing. I know what does and doesn't look good on my body. So that I'm not going to follow a trend that has nothing but items that will look HORRIBLY on me. Things that wouldn't suit me.

But, as trends and seasons come and go, there ARE things that I DO like, have always liked, and probably always will like. So THAT is when I select items that are my kinds of clothing.

Following color trends is a very good thing to, that is to learn what colors are coming into fashion. Home designs, clothing, etc. If something it out of season and not part of a trend, good luck finding that color. You won't find it. Not in kitchen accessories. Not in socks. You just won't find it.

BUT, if the colors you LOVE come into season or become part of a color trend, THEN you need to pick up those items. That's the only time you'll find certain items.

The best example is to think of Santa stuff in June. You don't see it. Ha! You don't see Halloween stuff at Easter. You don't see winter parkas on the first day of summer.

Observe the trends, and know yourself and what you need and what is good for you. You do not need to imitate the trends at all, though, if they have no interest to you, if you don't like the colors or the styles, don't buy them. That would be foolish and a waste of money.

i know someone who just opened a store called "trendsetters" it's really just gangsta clothing, a trend that's been around for a while. good name i guess, doesn't fit the store though.

i think that's the most important thing when it comes to clothing. i guess the fact that i'm not up on current fashion might affect my opinion, but when i look at a girl i don't care if she's dressed in whatever the new fashion is, i really just care if she's wearing something that looks flattering on her. i don't really get the point of trends, but i don't really care about getting what's new and hot so i guess they aren't for me. i'm not the kind of person who goes out to get the new gadget, i wait a week or so before seeing a movie (unless it's batman, saw that one opening day) i just don't get excited over things, i'm more excited by events or people.
