Trendy (plural trendies)
The once staple diet of british teenagers and 20 somethings, unlike many suggestions are not sheep, but do not like to be defined by the music they listen to or the clothes they wear; and so do the now rarely seen thing of buying clothes simply because they look neat, fit well and have a price range somewhere from being stupidly expensive to wearing rags found on the street; they also listen to music they like not because NME told them to like it or some DJ said "Bla Bla i'm da greatist" but because they thought "not bad". The vast majority are of average intelligence middle class people who realise life is more than trying to define yourself into a social group and so make good friends, find a good girl/boy settle down and earn some money to support there families. Trendies generally have no problems with other social groupings;ie. chavs, moshers, goths, townies. and are also putoff by yobs and others who cause trouble for the sake of not being able to hold there alchol.

As you can probably tell I am what would be classed as a trendy, not because I class myself as this but that others do. I think the majority of trendies end up in this group by default because these so-called sheep already no who they are and don't need to find themselves (unlike many others). When everyone else realises they are individuals and they are free to wear what ever they want, date whoever they want, listen to whatever they want, eat what ever they want without being labelled and grouped as they are today every one will be much happier, and I am sure my "Mosher" girlfriend would agree.

A sheep. A person without any self-identification or thoughts of her own. A person who does what the crowd is doing, out of insecurity and immaturity. A person who looks like everyone else because of an immature fear of being himself.
When you interview people for this job, be sure to weed out all the trendy people. I want someone who will work, not look in the mirror all day.

(adj.) Used to described whatever is "in" at the time of description, as in popular or done by a large number of people.
The definition of "trendy" constantly changes because trends change too. What is in at one point often becomes yesterday's fashion very quickly. As such, there really is no set definition.

"Trendy" is often used in this day and age to describe young 18-24 year-olds (one of the most sought-after marketing groups) who follow fashion trends (sometimes even starting or perpetuating new ones), are technology-savvy, up on the latest modern/alternative music, and in general are part of a group of people who all follow these same trends.
Basically, a "trendy" person is abreast of all the latest trends, and follows or is at least aware of most of them.

A "trendy" person in 2005 might be a 22 year-old girl who listens to Death Cab for Cute and the Postal Service, has an ipod or laptop, surfs the net and goes on Myspace or Facebook or something to network with friends, maybe maintains a Livejournal, Blogger, or Xanga to keep in touch with people, dresses fairly stylishly, and dates an attractive-looking and equally trendy emo boy.

But of course, this is only one definition...

A more upclass version of a townie, usually aged between 15-25. they hate goths, punks, or indeed anyone who doesn't follow the crowd. The blokes usually wear jeans and a shirt, and the girls (who are all blonde) wear pink, baby blue and white. only. Their entire lives consist of getting pissed at the weekend.
Wankers, the lot of em.
there's a crowd of trendies outside the offlicence again.

These sad little people come in great numbers, socialise only with themselves and follow the fashion, religiously!
Girls: Brown hair with blonde highlights, "Friends" hairstyles, retro shoes, big tacky white and teal square earrings, always obsessed about their hair/makeup/perfume/clothes/bags/music/friends/celebritys/tv programs etc..., they must do anything that will make them as popular as ever!
Boys: must have retro hair, must wear American sports shoes, and must listen to the Darkness, and be incredibly funny so the girls laugh stupidly, and flirt like whores.
These wannabes hate goths, punks, greebos and townies because they don't dress like them and therefore "are not popular enough"
"Touchin youuuuuuuuuu, Omg, did you see "I'm a celebrity get me out of here" last night? *gasp* look at my nails,if you get a microscope you can see a tiny crack... did you see what Grace was wearing? Really out of season!

A 'Trendy' is a person that wears the same as his/her ten mates.
For the male this normally involves slip on shoes, tight jeans and a shirt normally in a pastel shade or resembling your nans table cloth. His friend will be wearing the same but maybe a different coloured shirt if they are feeling adventurous.
They enjoy going into town on a saturday night to get drunk and then pick a fight with anyone on the way home.
The female, wearing various FCUK items, and looking like someone from Pop Idol, like her male counterparts, is often quite 'slutty' and brash and enjoys sex in alley ways.

Normally they have no individuality and the IQ of a Limpet with mental problems.
Person A: Look! There's a trendy who stands out from his mates.

Person B: Jesus H Christ!

Latte swilling, Tight t-shirt wearing wannabes - Who quite happily worship the ground celebrities walk on... Those unfortunate souls who've convinced themselves just how "cool" they actually are, because they can afford to spend £6 on a cup of "latte-double-milk-frockacinno", whilst sitting there judging just about everyone else on just how low they actually are! - These trendies plague the streets with there tight jeans, or flares, while purposely trying to pursuade themselves and everyone else they are acceptably beautiful for present day society!
Take a step into Starbucks -- (Yes, England is plagued with them too - Both Starbucks, and Trendies) - You'll immediately see a "trendy"...

during the last 4 years especially, people actually applying to a certain category was generally unheard of. For example goths were just a group of people that would only ever appear in an american movie. The sudden movement of being 'individual' became a necesity. Categories in which no1 lied opened and became one big trend. The people who DIDNT change their ways of life, music or clothes were labelled trendies, ironically so, considering the term trendy has the meaning of being a follower of trends.Although by NOT followin the trends of suddenly becoming a mosher , for example - the remaining group of people who are 'followers of trends' have become vastly outnumbered. Hence making the so-called 'trendies' the alternatives of our society. Go figure.
damned if you do, damned if you dont.
