Well, explanations of the term trendie are all very negative. It seems I define differently to what you all think. Agree or disagree, here I go: true, trendies are followers of fashion but NOT of townies, and are definately not wanting to be like them. Although trendies are commonly linked with townies, and in some cases do inherit some of their characteristics (usually their dress code), they are different. Different in the way they usually have some form of intellect and of decency. Perhaps you'd like to think of trendies as 'watered-down' versions of townies without the anti social behaviour. But if you take a look around, a large proportion of teenagers are trendies. This is a fact. In short: a trendie is a common fellow who follows in fashion, usually listening to mainstream music and demonstrates an acceptable amount of decency towards people.
Walk outside. If they have gelled hair, wearing denim, some jewery, and a brand-name t-shirt or other piece of clothing (e.g. adidas), you're looking at a trendie. NOT a townie, nor a person trying to be like one.
