How to: Be Trendy

How+to%3A+Be+Trendy

Staying trendy is all about keeping up with the latest fashion, beauty and lifestyle trends. Here’s a few tips to help you stay on top of your style game:

What is trendy?

  Something “trendy” is anything that influences people to buy or participate in the most recent fashions or ideas; modern in style.

What’s trendy currently? 

Trends are constantly changing, but what doesn’t is the desire to fit in and to be current. Ask yourself, with each trend you see everywhere and which ones are you tempted to try out?

  • Water bottles:  Stanley, Owala, Yeti, and Hydro flasks 
  • Shoes: Uggs, Birkenstocks, Platform Converse, Nikes, New Balances, and Hey Dudes
  • Bottoms: Flare leggings, Wide leg jeans, and Cargo pants
  • Tops: Oversized sweaters/ hoodies, Knit sweaters, and Vests 
  • Jewelry: Puravida, Enewton, Kendra Scott, and Chunky hoops

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” -–Yves Saint Laurent                                                                                                                               

Talk to a fashionable friend

If you’re still not sure on how to be more fashion forward, reach out to a friend whose style you admire.

  • Ask your friend how they stay up to date with the latest fashions
  • Get recommendations on which accounts/ sites you should follow for inspiration
  • Ask what their favorite places are to get things

How can you be trendy on a low budget?

Being trendy doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money:

  • Shop at outlets or thrift stores.
  • Get basics ( plain T-shirts, flattering jeans, ect…)
  • Use what you already have 
  • ACCESSORIZE!!!

About the Contributor
Kayley Arevalo, staff writer
Kayley Arevalo is a 15 year old sophomore, currently in her first semester of journalism. Arevalo was born in Supply, North Carolina which is a few minutes away from Shallotte where she grew up and spent most of her life. She spends her free time playing with her cats and from time to time hanging out with her friends. “One of my favorite things to do is going to Ocean Isle,” said Arevalo. “I like going there for the beach, and I usually go with my friends.” Arevalo was introduced to the West Wind by her sister Angela, class of 2019. Arevalo’s sister was editor-in-chief for The West Wind her senior year and took the class a total of six semesters. Kayley is following in her sister's footsteps, working to be a great writer.  “I like to write about current trending topics and would like to do more like that,” said Arevalo. “Also I like Mrs. Saunders, so that helped for why I joined the class.”  “My proudest moment in life is getting the principal's award,” said Arevalo. “I got it because I think I was a very good student in 8th Grade, and I always helped the teacher because she was leaving that year.” Kayley’s future plans are to go to a four-year university; although there are no clear options of which school she wants to go to, Arevalo wants to have a career in journalism. Her new passion is already taking a leap by being in the West Wind, practicing and learning new skills and concepts. “I think this class is really fun,” said Arevalo, “we get to be ourselves without judgment and that's what makes it so fun.”
