Well, "trends" are one thing, but I've never been much for them. What I'd like to do is have a good enough selection to build my own style, for the long term, seasonal fads be damned. Ever since late HS, I went against the grain, and built up my confidence with that. Yeah, I really feel bad for women, who are corralled into the latest fashion schemes, but there are other ways of building up a unique fashion sense without playing to the yearly craze. Do it for a while, and people will just know it as "you", and they'll respect you for neither playing to or playing against the latest trends. Maybe easier said than done, but I've witnessed people making it work.
Us guys... we almost don't have that option. I say "almost" though, because I've been able to play around A LITTLE BIT within the limited scope of acceptable modern day men's clothing options, but I do envy women for being able to play more.
That said, guys do have one advantage: we rarely struggle with finding the right sizes... if there are 1000 of the same type of pants, there's bound to be one in your size. Not so with women, who get a hundred racks of different clothing, all the same 5 sizes for the same body types. My girlfriend is 6ft with long legs... hell of a time finding the right sizes for clothing.
