General Question: What makes something trendy?


“When more people start wearing or using it, like skinny jeans and Converse. An old trend, Silly Bandz, got popular because people would trade them with each other.”

– Katty C., 12


“If a popular person likes something, it catches on with other people. Trends are made by how many people like something.”

– Olabanji A., 11

“If it looks good or sounds good like Facebook and Jordans.”

– Richard N., 10

“Public figures or celebrities are the ones that start a trend. Since people see them as successful people, people will think that┬ábeing or dressing like them will make them successful also.”
