Throughout history, trends have shaped decades in the fashion industry. When I think of fashion trends, I think of the Kurt Cobain-inspired grunge trend of the 90s or the neon color block trend of the 80s. I mean, what would the early 2000s be without the infamous juicy couture tracksuits? Throughout history, fashion trends have come and gone, defining each era. That is until Social media was born. Following trends can be a fun way to participate in fashion. The way you dress can help you express yourself and shape your identity. However, with the invention of social media, trends have come and gone faster than ever. In a matter of months, we see the rise and fall of the latest fashion trends. As a result, clothing is being overconsumed and overproduced at an exponential rate.
