I'm also a teen, soon turning 17, and i don't get why do sooo many people around my age want to be in trend, look like Kylie Jenner and follow all kinds of fashion trends. You are probably gonna hate me now for that, but almost EVERY teen is now either a vegetarian or vegan, bisexual or gay ( not a homophobe but i dont accept gay rights since im a Christian ) especially youtubers or people that want attention, tumblr kinda attention folks that are usually all about depression and cutting and atheists or satanists. For example in my school there is a group of people that are satanists so they look cool.

I don't really know why.

I never got into those trends and fashions. I wear whatever I want, whenever I want and don't care what others look like.

I never cared to follow other peoples trends. You don't have to do something just because others are doing the same and if they put you down for not following trends then they aren't your TRUE friends to begin with.

Find better REAL friends.

I think it is cool. I like some trendy things like Lapel Pins, for example. I wear them a lot, and I often make them by myself. What do you think about such things?

I think teenagers of all generations want to be trendy. It's just how it works. Teens want to show off. Always. Given that they can afford it then it's unstoppable. I recommended reading this article about handbags replicas. Such accessories are pretty popular among teens because they look almost like original models.
