recent fashion expressions / adjectives

What does eclectic mean? Its in my magazines and I have no cluee...the deffinition is:

Quote:
e·clec·tic ( P ) Pronunciation Key (-klktk)
adj.
  1. Selecting or employing individual elements from a variety of sources, systems, or styles: an eclectic taste in music; an eclectic approach to managing the economy.
  2. Made up of or combining elements from a variety of sources: “a popular bar patronized by an eclectic collection of artists, writers, secretaries and aging soldiers on reserve duty” (Curtis Wilkie).
So I'm guessing its a combonation of styles? Which ones?

good effort vintagepearls...
but i don't think that's what everyone means when they are using it...
i think they are talking more about it looking modern or new...
different or interesting...

but they somehow just needed a new word to say all of that...


you see....who knows what it really means...??

these 'buzz words' rarely have any one meaning and are just used for the hell of it! people make up their own meanings.

Eclectic = variety / wide range

That's how I always look at it.

wht kimkhuu said !
'fresh' imo is just to do w/the concept behind smthn
is the idea behind it smthn new / innovative ? . . .

*the thesaurus says 'fresh' is a synonym for 'original' . .

eclectic = that's me! I'm very poor at sticking to a particular style!
