Fashion trends are like ocean waves: they come and go.
At Salt Lake Community College, you see different fashion trends everywhere you look. Students display many different styles of fashion: the jock, the preppy student, the chic, tomboy, punk, you name it. No matter what style you fall under, the key is knowing how to keep up with the latest fashion trends.
SLCC fashion design student Fransisco Ortega defines a fashion trend as “something that goes out of style fairly quickly, [yet] makes a statement, like fanny packs, floral, or Hawaiian patterns.”
While fashion trends can change quickly, it’s always interesting and fun to see what designs are trending today.
“I pick up fashion trends from the runway shows [at the different] Fashion Week [events],” Ortega says. I [also] follow a lot of the designers on Instagram.”
Society bases fashion on trends or movements that a large number of people follow.
“Fashion is a style or flavor that starts to become a thing through majority,” says SLCC student Precious Stowall.
Styles are based off of hobbies, passions and what individuals feel most comfortable in.
“If I had to declare a style I follow, I’d say I’m really old school, but I’m also a dancer. I like the baggy look,” Stowall says. “I like what I like; it’s hard to find something bad on someone else, but if I’m not drawn to it, I won’t wear it.”
