Someone who wears what they think is cool. In my school being a trend setter is stupid, unless it is something cool, like a Soulja Boy Shirt. I'm not a trend setter but 1 day instead of A&F,Aero,or AE, I wore a soulja boy shirt and everyone loved it. This one guy said he but it for $20.
Trend Setter:Look at my shirt
Non-Trend Setters:Boooooooooooring Today
Trend Setter:Look at this Soulja boy shirt
Non-trend setters:WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It won't be boring if its something cool, like your shirt now, keep up the cool shirts. Tomorrow
