When it comes to fashion it is easy to confuse the idea of being "stylish" with the idea of being "trendy". While at first glance the two words might appear to mean the same thing there are actually some very distinct differences between them; and most people usually find that they gravitate towards one type of style or the other. Regardless of which one you prefer, Labellush.com recommends that having a firm understanding of both can help you to better understand and round out your wardrobe, while still staying true to yourself.
Almost like clockwork, people who are "trendy" fall in love with the newest trends season after season. They seek inspiration for their personal style from the most recent runways, hottest celebs, and major glossy magazines. They make a deliberate attempt, and often spend a significant amount of money each season incorporating the newest colors, and styles into their wardrobe and usually by the end of the season they are more than ready to purge their closets of their "out-dated" duds and start all over again.
On the up side; because trendy people make an effort to stay current their style conveys an air of awareness to the world around them. It says they are active, involved, and interested. However, on the down side, because trends are constantly changing people with a trendy style may lack a sense of defined identity.
If you feel you are more of a "trendy" person and you want to balance out your style Labellush.com recommends stocking up on some high-quality basics. Look for timeless, well tailored pieces, in flattering neutral colors that will easily mix and match with your seasonal fashion finds, and last for years.
