A scourge which is arriving, in Britain anyway, not sure about other places...

Trendies are, on the surface, the "cool" people in their 20's, your stereotypical student, clean, almost "grown up" looking youths.

However in reality most are incredibly conceited, IMMATURE, arrogant, personality devoid, and nasty people, who are ridiculously cold to "ousiders".

With music and fashion they are infinitely malleable. They positively lap up the music MTV and NME Magazine dictates to them to like, however unlike the mallcore crowd, they do this activity shamelessly, and in the case of fashion, they wear what ghastly womens magazines/"lads mags" say is "hot" or simply what celebs (celebrities) like to wear, the latter are worshipped, especially if they tie-in with sport or the most popular television shows, the trendy will regurgitate the stupidest catchphrase from the stupidest show ad nauseum, until it's uncool to do so of course...

Quite possibly the most narrow minded group of people, and absolutely adamant about not letting others into their circles of friends, they'd rather be seen dead than seen being friends with someone with an "uncool" haircut, unless you match them exactly, trying to start a convo with one will be met with silence, blatent ignoring. This is contrasting to the crowd of trendies, which are, in most cases, as rowdy as they come. Although they rarely resort to physical violence the trendy has nothing but contempt for anyone out of the "norm", shouts to strangers who look different will usually be hilariously innaccurate, for example, calling people who wear heavy metal shirts, "goths".

A trendy is a walking set of contradicting philosophies which have been melded together by the media, the biggest contradiction of them all is thinking they are incredibly urbane and "grown up" when in fact they listen to pop music aimed at teenyboppers and, even worse, holding onto this attitude of "we are the cool kids and you are all sad geeks" into ages as ridiculous as their late 20's, something that most people outgrew before reaching teenagehood.

Everything which the masses like becomes part of every trendies outlook and philosophy, a trait they share with the poser, only instead of trying to get into a local clique or copying an idol they wish to be what they are dictated to be, along with the ever present arrogant-obnoxious personality, as someone said, they are quite possibly the shallowest herd there is, if it became "cool" to wear shit-streaked underpants on our head, the trendy would do this without even thinking about it.
Metalhead is 5 years or so younger than Trendy:

Trendy: Metal all sounds the same! I listen to decent bands like The Arctic Monkeys, The Fratellis...
Metalhead: No offence dude but I think that about the sort of bands you listen to, maybe I don't have an ear for that type of music, fair enough, I just know that metal like Korpiklaani and Freedom Call sound slightly different from TestAmenT and Razor to me...
Trendy: Whatever, you listen to your shitty shouting satan music then, the only good metal is System of a down.
Metalhead: They're ok, but they aren't metal.
Trendy: LOLOLOLOL!1 I bet <bands most well known song> is heavier than any of your... TestAmenT whatever... hahaha
*Trendy walks away*
Metalhead: *to self trying not to laugh* God... Trendies...

Trendy Girl: You should wear this.
Non-Trendy Guy: Why?
Trendy Girl: Because it would look hot.
Non-Trendy Guy: So, I should wear clothes I personally HATE, simply to be attractive to the opposite sex? How stupid...
*Trendy Girl tries to process the fact people can wear clothes THEY want to, fails, and walks off, her natural trendy instinct of getting away from the "loser" kicking in*

Trendy: Look at that idiot, his shirt looks so gay, who the fuck would wear a pink shirt?
*fast forward to when they are popular*
Trendy: *wearing a pink shirt like everyone else* Look at my shirt, it's "sick"... Pretty cool how I started the whole wearing pink thing around here.
*an arguement starts over who started it, the person they took the piss out of before would be conviniently forgotton. Also goes for bands they took the piss out of when not popular.(Trendies are the inheriters of Orwell's Doublethink)*

^ Above are practically real examples, sadly.

A rich townie basically. They wear everything thats "fashionable" even if it looks awful, and still manage to keep all of the classic townie traits.
Normal human being 1: look at that trendy. Why does he think hes anything different from all the rest of the townies?
Normal human being 2: I don't know Bob. I can't see much difference.
Jeans and a T-shirt makes you trendy? Then im going naked. As i see it the goths, the punks, the preps, anything that walks and labels themselves is a trendy. They are the fads of society and keep your economy going, they shop j.c penny and hot topic, and watch mtv religiously hoping they dont miss out on the next trend. Listen to Jim Morrison and Bob Dylan thinking that that makes them sophisticated.Drinking Latte's not realizing its only milk.

Usually hating the first person to do it because they are different and than once everyone else starts doing it, they hop on the band wagon. e.g. tight jeans on guys
Colin Gellner: Hey, lets go to the girls section of the gap so we can buy girls jeans and be trendy!

Josh Stanley: Oh boy, lets, I said I would never change but okie dokiez! I hope we aren't both 16's tehehe!

Alex' dressing really trending and it is starting to make me curious about his orientation.

someone who is often buying and wearing as many name brands as they possibly can-usually the same as what their fellow ‘groupies’ are wearing but maybe a slightly different color. They tend to wear the biggest gaudiest labels so everyone they meet will know exactly how much they spent on their god awful outfit
oh my god shes so rich and trendy she spent 500 dollars on a brand name white tee.

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.
Trendy guy: Hey here comes Rob bout time he got here we gotta go!
Random goth/rudeboi passer by: Ahhhhhhh he's a goth/rudeboi don't hate him cos he's better than u trendy sheep!!
