You Have a Trendy Clothing Personality!
Having a Trendy Clothing Personality/fashion persona means that you like to wear all kinds of trends - often all at the same time and you manage to look good! Your style is up-to-date without the constraints of traditional fashion.

This fashion persona covers a variety of sub-categories (or you could call it "mixes"), mainly because women who have this as their dominant clothing personality tend to have scattered closet choices. I would say that a Trendy fashion persona is mainly divided by these general 3 fashion looks:
It's most likely that you try to keep yourself abreast of the latest trends, and the do's and don'ts of fashion. But you may be very well the trendsetter among your friends - picking up outside inspiration and making them into your own style. You can be very spontaneous when shopping for new clothes and tend to choose on impulse.

Your jewelry drawers are probably adorned by large hoop earrings (doorknockers, bamboo shaped earrings, etc.) or anything that looks edgy but cool, gold chains, often with lots of sparkly faux diamonds. You might also have some studded accessories lurking around in your closet.
You love mixing bold colors, like for example hot pink with electric blue. Creating a fun, edgy and innovative fashion statement is a part of your style.
Note: One thing I've noticed over and over again is that usually those who suffer from a clothing personality disorder are a majority in this clothing style. Clothing personality disorder means 'a confusion created when you're strongly influenced by others to wear clothes not fitting with your inborn personality'.
Styles of Trendy Fashion PersonaSassy (girly and glam) is a very popular look from this clothing personality. Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe are perfect examples of glamorous and girly on-trend fashionistas (Kim being the one who manages to separate herself from the bunch because of her dramatic-alluring taste).
A Trendy Fashion Persona also overlaps with
Creative, making this an undefinable cocktail of style which at its best look hip and vibrant which can be classified as Eclectic.
As well as Dramatic. There's also Urban fashion style based on sub-cultures (distinct styles influenced by behaviors and interests): Punk/Rock, Grunge, Emo, Goth (Lolita), Japanese (Harajuku), etc.

How to Improve Your Style/Word of Warning:
A downside to having a Trendy fashion persona is that you might appear a bit of a slave for fashion because it may seem that you're wearing what other people are telling you to wear.
Women with a Trendy clothing personality often go with the flow of what's hot and end up 'losing' themselves in the process. Stop for a moment and think about how the high fashion clothes make you feel - does it make you feel comfortable and confident? Or do you feel out of place? If it's the latter then this may indicate that you're not staying true to your personal style - which calls for some major assessment of your personal style!
Attitude is everything when it comes to pulling off a trendy look. And this boils down to how comfortable you feel wearing trendy clothes. Famous fashionistas such as Rihanna and Beyonce look awesome (despite their frequent flashy and bold fashion looks) because they're confident!
In my opinion, there are two types of fashionistas - those who look fabulous and those who don't. It's all about knowing what looks good on you and dress accordingly. Be a bit picky about the latest trends. Work on developing your signature style as it helps you separate yourself from the bunch. So figure out what you love wearing all the time or what type of clothing or accessory dominates your closet and use it as your 'calling card'!
