In an age ruled by all the latest trends and technology, it’s natural to think that everyone would jump at the chance to join in on the latest fashion craze when it comes out. However, a recent poll submitted by Callamatie proved that not to be the case.
When asked whether or not fashion trends were important, a shocking 80% of the survey participants gave a hearty thumbs down to caring about the latest fashion trends going around.
In truth, we imagine many of the participants find it easier to make their own fashions that look good on them. People prefer to be comfortable rather than flashy on a daily basis and while the latest fashions can be nice to look at, let’s be realistic — no one wants to hop around in a mini skirt and stilettos all day, especially if there’s a nice pair of jeans and a sweater lying just within arm’s reach. Creating your own style makes it comfortable for you and gives you a sense of individuality as you walk down the street and, as the result show, many people prefer to do that.
Still, this isn’t to say that fashion trends aren’t important. The remaining 20% of poll voters raise a good point in saying that it is still a good idea to be at least mildly informed about what’s “in”. While creating your own fashion has its own appeal, it’s nice to know what’s in and acceptable for the time so as not to go about looking completely ridiculous. After all, no one would be caught dead wearing a pair of bell bottoms and platform shoes in this day and age, no matter how retro you go.
Why not tell us what YOU think?
