Top Definition
A trendy is a social categorisation of person who follows modern fashion and listens to mainstream music, having no music genre in particular they follow. The common belief held by many alternatives that trendies lack 'individuality' is incorrect, and can also be applied to other social groups concerning their own appearence. Quite hypocritical really.

Typical trendy guys dress in denim, commonly wearing tight jeans. The jeans are usually long enough to overflow over a trendy's well-maintained trainers, just over the trainer's tongue. They usually wear short sleeve t-shirts of top names such as FCUK, and may wear a jacket (commonly denim). Trendy guys' hair are styled with gel, and they commonly decorate themselves with moderate amounts of jewerery (not too much bling).

Trendy girls are easier to recognise. They are 'shopaholics', and therefore wear the lastest top fashion clothes. They are notoriously known for tight-fitting jeans bearing words such as 'hooch' or 'angel' at the rear. Belly buttons are exposed in fine weather (usually pierced) by their wearing of small tops. Hair styles range (and change) from different styles, but are always kept feminine. Make-up is usually worn in vast amounts, particuarly eye shadow and blusher. Fake tan is also popular.

The view shared by other groups is that trendies are simply 'wannabe townies'. This is wrong. Trendies are a separate social group from townies and the two can be defined differently. Basically it depends on the person themselves and their behaviour towards people, and attitudes. Trendies are typically intelligent, decent, friendly people (much opposed to townies) with a sense of independance and direction. Despite liking to have a good time, and a fondness of getting drunk, their behaviour is never abusive or harmful (not intentionally anyway!)
A typical scenario:

Alternative1: Ha, look, it's a trendy! They all look the same!
Alternative2: Yeah! Wannabe townies, the lot of them!
Trendy: What's their problem?

Someone who follows modern fashion, whatever the current trend of clothing is. They have little if any individuality in their clothing and attitude.
Hes just another trendy

Pathetic wanna-be posers who cling to everything cool and suck the lifeblood from it and then move onto the next fad or craze after the head trendy declares it uncool.

If it's a show or movie they'll keep quoting lines from it. If it's a song they will play it over and over again a zilion times a day.
Napoleon Dynamite and Dave Chapelle were cool until the trendys got hold of it.

Trendys are vain cunts and the most stereotypical bastards around. They will only socialise with people within their own group and wont take other subcultures e.g goths,grebs or anyone else who does'nt dress like them seriously and even considering them not normal people.

The female trendy is that loud,popular attractive girl who you may remember from high school,work or whatever with that shitty EVERYBODY LOVES ME! attitude.The males are immature pricks and only buy designer labels to attract pussy. The males also pay over £20 for a stupid looking boyband/footballer haircut.

Their genre of music is anything popular but will stay well clear of rock.

At the end of the day trendies are sheep following,false personality people who waste all of their rich daddys money on a load of shit.
trendy: im goonna spend £100 on a shitty designer label jumper.

Dressing/acting in a certain way just to conform to everyone else.
Not Trendy: Oh my god, I love this shirt! I don't usually shop here, but hey, it rocks :)
Trendy: Hey, its this shirt that I've seen people wearing. Eh, so its not really my style. I'll be cool!

These people have quite a tight circle of friends and generally enjoy taking the piss out of other people. They listen to dance or D n B and are usually out clubbing most nights, or inviting themselves to parties. Jurassic 5 was quite full of trendies actually. They generally dont get on with people that arent trendies and will usually sit outside at parties and smoke all night, if they dont smoke then they just sit and chat, but you rarely see them off their face, they usually have the odd social drink.
This parties full of trendies, nothing much is going to happen tonight then
