Before I even start to tackle this question, I think it is helpful to clarify what we mean by ‘fad’ and the best way I could think of doing this was to consider some examples.
- Leg warmers worn anywhere other than inside a dance studio: fad
- No make-up selfies: fad
- Replacing actual laughing with the word “LOL”: fad
- Dressing as clowns and scaring people: fad
