By "trendy" I mean clothing that is seen as both modern and acceptable to their audience-- i.e. following the "trend" of what the mainstream believes is desirable/cool. Most stuff worn by male celebrities is trendy (more than fashion-y) since the concept of men embracing fashion is largely not accepted within the mainstream audience the celebrity strives to impress. But once a trend has been established, even something seemingly weird and fashion-y can be worn with impunity. Thus if Jude Law is seen wearing creepers this is a sign that the trend has already taken off somewhat. A good analogy is Katie Holmes foray into men's clothing. While many popular magazines were nearly casting her as the bold originator of this look, we all know this trend had been steadily gaining acceptance long before she was doing it. Just because the celebrity is closer to the leading edge of the trend, it does not change the fact that it is trendy.
