I've been seeing fluorescent clothing and shoes being worn by a few people. It's a new trend.
[Article] Fluorescent is IN
It says "Look at me, I want to be the center of attention!" Nevermind that he/she looks like a construction worker. Nevermind that it's annoyingly bright or ugly. Nevermind that construction and safety workers are now at greater safety risk of not being seen.
It appears that a very few people throw out suggestions and the masses adopt it, go with it, and make it a new trend.
FASHION. It's just not for clothes. Fashion is the acceptance of a notion or idea. It creates a way of life. Fashion is acceptance of the way one goes about during the day be it the job, food, shopping, investing, government, housing, driving, travel, social interactions, relationships, entertainment, hobbies, etc.
Fashion cannot be calculated with math. It's a feeling or emotion. It's not rational. That's why things are illogical, inefficient, unproductive, disadvantageous, or harmful. Thusly, a way of life is accepted fashion. Someone comes up with a way of doing something and people adopt it be it waking up in the morning to go to a school or job, watching a lying media on tv, shopping sweatshop made goods, investing in dark pools of money called a 401k mutual fund, and so forth.
Fashion is what somebody else thought up for you which you adopted. Now it's time to strut down the catwalk.
