I'm not trendy. At all.

But I don't look dated, either. I tend to dress in very classic basics that don't really go in or out. Its not the most exciting, but it suits my budget to not buy things that are only on trend for a season or two. More bang for my buck, and I can inexpensively add interest with accessories.

I sincerely doubt that "everyone hates you for your style." I think you are probably just living in your head.

I'm very trendy.
I usually try the new styles if my butt can fit or find my size.

I love the clothes Robin Meade wears.She's gorgeous and funny at the same time.

I often look at how the newscasters dress/weather ladies.

However I copy their styles with waaaay cheaper clothes.

I still wear bootcut jeans though because they look nice on my short rounded butt.

Mid length bob, straight hair.

I loooove heart necklaces so Valentine's is fun for me.

The almond shape nails is a young thing to me, so I keep them short and painted.Not to mention its easier to text/type.

The gold fad I like but still wear my silver.

Love the bright bold lips and colorful eyes.

Although I'm very feminine, I can be a bit crazy in sports.lol!

Either way I don't because I'm short and very chesty, so I have to buy clothes that suit my body frame, and many clothing styles seem to be made for women who are 5'10" and weigh about 80 lbs

Also, I don't buy stuff I think looks ugly, even if it would look flattering on my body frame. I notice Sears and JC Penney has an abundance of loud, hideous prints in their shirts and dresses right now. I don't know who their designers are, but they sure haven't consulted with real women about what they like, I don't believe.

Just to clarify: I was referring to the approach "this is what everybody should be wearing this season." And if you go to a local clothing or department store, the "current styles" are likely all you will find.

Examples: I recall reading on CD a long time ago someone who was asking why people wear boot-cut jeans when boot-cut jeans aren't in style, and why women wear pantyhose because they're not in style.

I used to care more about being fashionable. Now I'm more interested in being comfortable... not that I wear sweatpants and pajamas out in public. But I will choose jeans and a comfortable shirt over high heels and a dress that I have to wear tight undies with.

I recently bought a pair of "manly" hiking boots, even. They look funny sitting next to the high heels that I used to wear all the time. It looks like I had some Major Life Event that made me travel 180* in my choices of footwear. I guess getting older is a Major Life Event!

I like to keep up with current trends and fashions, more out of interest than guidance as to what to buy. It's fun to see what is new each season. I will try something new in the store, but if I don't like it I won't buy it. I wear what looks good on me regardless of whether it is "in" or not. Sometimes new accessories are all it takes to make me feel updated. Some of the trends I am just better off leaving on the models.

I wear boot cut jeans because they make my legs look proportional. I can wear straight leg jeans, but they are harder to find. Skinny jeans are not for me. I am not fat, but they make me feel fat. I never wear pantyhose. They are way too hot and uncomfortable. I have only seen one person wear them down here and they do look very dated.
