    I don't think age should play any part. When talking about fashion, if you like something, I think there are age appropriate levels to embrace it.

    Physical age of a person is immaterial for embracing new trends. It depends more on the mental age.

    There comes a time in life when you realize you are not young any more, and that you need to dress more age appropriately. I am sure it is different for every one. That doesn't mean you have to give up all trends, but just those that make you look ridiculous. Grandma in a mini - depends!

    I think age has less to do with it. I think it is more insecurities that lead people to follow trends so that they appear to part of the in crowd. That, plus if one has the money to keep up with trends, then you also appear to be rich, even if you have a ton of credit card debt.

    Young people are more open to new things because everything is new to them. Older people tend to be more cautious and not always interested in change.

    Being open to change and learning new things keeps our mind young and active. Active minds stay young.

    Yes, it does. When you're younger, like some people have already said, the older you are, the more experienced you are, and you are more careful. The younger you are, you're more curious and tend to try out new things. Now, when you get to like.. teen ages, you're bound to try and fit in with everyone, or else you might not really fit in with the crowd and .. sometimes, you can be picked on):
    It's also the attitude, to either blend with the crowd or just be who you are. Many teenagers like to keep up with trends (especially girls ^^ ) cause.. fashion is either "in", and everyone does that or "out".

    I really like to take a part in new trends, but lately I've only follwed a trend that works for me, like the Harem Pants. I love them, and they play up my curves a lot. I have a play pair that I wore to work the other day, and everybody LOVED it. I don't think age has to do with anything, as long as you can wear it right.

    Personally trend's have never even caught my eye no matter my age. I have never been a follower though. Joining trends seems to me it is more about following what everyone else is doing, rather than a person's age. Maybe when we are real young and not yet confident in ourselves,then following everyone else or joining a trend allows us to be part of the crowd, or the team.
    A trend does not mean clothing only. It could be any trend. Like right now in this day and age. It is the trend to tweet, twitter, face book etc. Not trying to be insulting to anyone, trust me if it rings your bell, have at it. I cannot think of many things more boring than what texting, tweeting,or any of the instant social media things are to me. Maybe watching paint dry, but that would be a close second. Age has nothing to do with whether I'd join a trend or not.

    It do not depend on the age , its a matter of heart, if your heart is young and full of thrill then you can play at the age of 60s and if your heart is sad and dull then it can't.

    It depends upon the trend in question.  If it is fashions, or googy stuff like "planking," then yes, I think youngsters are probably more likely to join in.

    If it is some device, such as cell phones, or e-readers, then I think age is irrelevant over the long haul, although the young are more likely to be the first to accept and become proficient at thngs like texting and using their cell-phone cameras, GPS capabilities, and so forth, while the older generation may become more easily comfortable with e-readers and other technlogoy of that ilk.  (Since we seem to have raised a generation of non-readers...)

    I think age plays a very important part, just because when you're young you're still trying to find your own identity and you experiment with everything new and everything you think looks cool just to try to find yourself in the way. When you grow older you realise that there's no need to follow trends to be different you just wear whatever you want to wear, not what fashion industry and celebrities say is IN.

    It plays a part, because as you age, you realize that "trends" are not all that important. If it is trends regarding your business, that's different. You want to pay attention to those. But if you are just talking about societal will eventually (hopefully) mature to a point in which you will age out of even paying attention to them, because you realize that they do not govern your life.
