Um...I don't know Kowie, I've been wearing maxi x wedges for over twenty years...as has my mom. Always loved that style and probably always will.

There you go, proving my point before I could make it For every trend, there's someone whose style that genuinely is.

Ta-ta. You summed it up perfectly&concisely!

Maybe we've enough experience to know that 99% of styles that come in fashion are nothing new, and that each style originates from a different cultural framework which these trends are simply borrowing from.
I think one can usually tell when someone has completely appropriated a style.

I wouldn't say so much that I have a unique style but I do have a unique taste. I look up to designers who create trends each season but keeps their personal touch and artists who update their look according to their art.

My motto is "You should wear your clothes, not the other way around". I think that simpler designs tend to highlight one's beauty. I buy clothes that look good on my body type, in colours that flatter my skintone, haircolour and eye colour. I (as most people) look better in natural fabrics and in finely made, well-tailored clothes; which exactly what high fashion is all about (save from the trend-setting aspect).

Well, there are always exceptions. But I think we can agree that the vast majority of those who wear maxi dresses and wegdes are highly influenced by this seasons trends. Not that it's something wrong with that, I just want an acknowledgement.
