      But, in these photos, I don’t find clear clothing trends from one image to the next. The most ubiquitous silhouette of the millennium thus far — skinny jeans — fails to make a single appearance. On the surface, the fashion consensus is no consensus.

      The nice thing is trends are basically dead. Everything moves so fast with the way internet photos can spread looks that you can pretty much wear whatever the heck you want and you're good to go. Maybe something will be a thing for a moment, but it's over so fast if you like it just freaking wear it. BC it will for sure be "over" by the time you find yourself a piece in alignment with that trend anyways.

      If anything, fashion is tribal now. You wear what your community wears, or at least riffs on the same plotline.
