What is a fad? But what is a trend? Let’s start with definitions:
FAD: an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, which may be short-lived and a craze.
TREND: a general direction in which something is developing or changing causing a specific area taking a new swing in a rage.
Are you confused? Remember the Harvest Gold and the Avocado colors for kitchens? That is a trend. Right now the trend in home décor is using chalk paint, having a “used” appearance to furniture accessories, repurposing, and an IKEA look to all rooms in the home.
There is a trend in fashion of longer tops with leggings and tight pants.Put on your thinking caps and think of a fad! I remember the “pet rock” being a fad and so were bell bottom, hip hugger pants! Today a fad that is rising quickly are t-shirts pained with Sharpie markers to achieve a tie-dye appearance as well as painted rocks!
Fads are quick to find on the internet, especially Pinterest! www.pinterest.com
