Article: Trends vs. Fads

When people talk about trends and fads, most people don't know how to use either word correctly, so I'm going to define them for you today.

A fad is something that is "here today, gone" tommorow. For example, are leg warmers and parachute pants, the Atkins diet etc.

Trends on the other hand have staying power such as skinny jeans, hobo handbags etc. Both trends and fads can start off the same but one lasts much longer than the other.
