Pros and Cons of Following Fashion Trend

Outfits come and go. Such is the essence of fashion. It is all in trend. Why do we follow it? Most often the reason is that we wish to blend in. In truth, there are some advantages associated with going with the flow. But this does not fully offset the disadvantages.

Pros
It makes shopping easier: Going by the trend means we are ready to buy what majority of the stores offer. This saves our time in the mall.

It speaks upgraded: The benefit of going with the trend is that it adds upgrade to the follower. It is like disposing of a cell phone for a smartphone.

It gives the follower a competitive edge: Proven by research and seen by us in the real world of shallowness, we women dress for other women. We want to appear cool within our friend circle. Following the fashion tends to make it happen.

It makes the follower look happy: Those who have time for fashion are usually considered less stressed and depression free. Sad people don't always care about how they appear in front of others.

It is a great way to enjoy the youth: Do you ever notice how with each passing age our outfit options decrease? When we reach 40 we stick to less flashy colors and designs. After the age of 60, we get more formal and thus prefer more seriousness in our dressing style. The best time of our lives falls between the ages of 14 and 28. Most fashion trends are designed with the young group in mind. Hence, we have a wide variety of clothes to choose from. Why not enjoy it while it lasts? There will always be time for plain clothes. They never go out of fashion.

Cons
It can turn the follower into a laughingstock:
As we know, going with the trend means buying whatever is in the store without wondering whether it will suit us or not. This is not always favorable. Guys have a variety of names for those who fail to dress up according to their body types.

Follower is only a follower, not a trendsetter: The idea to go by the trend hinders us from experimenting and coming up with our own fashion statements. We admit it or not, going with the flow does give us lower rank. The trendsetters stay on the top with their power to create and innovate fashion. Do note that one does not require celebrity status to start one.

It is a habit too hard to eliminate: Following fashion trends can turn into addiction which sometimes is difficult to get rid of, impacting not just confidence level, but also financial condition.

Suitable trendy clothes can still give the follower a bad name: Intellectuals in our society preach individualism because this is what our country stands for. Those who are for it have multiple names for a follower such as sheeple, cattle brained and trendwhore. At the end, the idea does make us lose our true identity.

It divides and rules: Corporate world has a tendency to regard people with no interest in fashion as ugly and social outcast. This has profound impact on high school girls. Not all fall under the spell, but typically the trendy ones prefer to stay in their own fashionable group, isolating those who are serious about studies and don't care about fashion. In most cases, they form their own little groups. Do we need this kind of division at the tender age of 15?
