Trends, are they for the better or the worse? Trends separate people based on what they have and don’t have, like how people become popular. Trends can be clothes, shoes, and even backpacks; for example, at Mcauliffe, some of the biggest trends are North Face backpacks, Lululemon, Uggs, Converse, Nike socks, Dunks, and sometimes what music you listen to. 

 

Trends can make people feel left out if they don’t have it and sometimes even bullied for not having it. Trends can separate friends, and from first-hand experience, they can make fun of you for not doing something or not having a sure thing. Now, I’m not saying trends are alarming; yes, some can hurt people or make people feel left out, but some are good, like some skin and health trends, like drinking a gallon of water, have good skin benefits and help maintain physical and mental stamina. 

 

Where do trends come from? A prevalent way trends are formed or discovered is through social media. Some of the most popular social media platforms are TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram, where you can post about your life, what you do, and what you have. Most influencers are there to help you find what’s good for you and what you should get to help you and benefit you, but some come off as bragging. Ways that influencers “Brag” or show what they have by just simply showing it and proceeding to say how many people don’t have whatever they are showing and how they specifically have it. Trends can come from someone simply saying, “YOU NEED TO GET THIS!” and showing a product and why you should supposedly get said item, and then more influencers catch on and do the same thing.

 


Through all the years of social media and following trends, society can tell if a trend is for the better or the worst, but you as a person have to be able to know if the trend is safe, two worth it, and three if you think that the trend is good for you. One of the most essential things with trends is thinking beforehand if you want to take part in said trend so you can avoid getting in trouble. But obviously, only some trends are correct, so you wouldn’t have to do as much thinking. But does that answer whether trends are for the better or the worse?
