People have different approaches to fashion and clothing. Some people like to stick to classics while others would follow the trends. Both approaches have their advantages. Anyone who knows what he or she is doing is going to make both approaches work if they want to.
One advantage to following trends is that it can keep the trendy person relevant. People who know how to use judgment are always going to make the latest trends work. For instance, Meghan Markle is an example of this. They just have to know which trend to follow. Of course the disadvantages that come with being trendy is that it is easy to pick an item and put together an outfit that does not work. This will not only make the individual look ridiculous, but may also make the trendy look ridiculous as well. Some trendy items that are actually really good can look wrong simply because the wrong person wore it or someone just wore it wrong. The trends that stick around often do so because someone knew how to wear the trendy item.
Sticking to classics is something that people who are more style conscious often recommend. As a matter of fact, people often say that the person who sticks to the classics are going to be considered more stylish. For one thing, there is less of a risk factor involved with this approach because people are less likely to look ridiculous. However, one disadvantage is that some people might consider this approach to be boring compared to the trendy approach.
When it comes to style, neither approach is better than others. Even with people putting together a tacky outfit from their trends, it is possible and common for people to look rather goofy in classic items. One of the most common ways that people look goofy in classics is when they wear oversized items.
