Trendiness/Popularity
Explanation:
トレンド is 和製英語 for 傾向。 So, if you add 性、 I think a good translation would be "trendiness" or "popularity". Perhaps "Popularity" is more natural. I think there are several options all having equal meaning though.

  -> Thank you Timothy!

agree  Jean-Christophe Helary: I was thinking about fashionability but I seem to be wrong :) | But fashionability expresses a potential, while trendiness or popularity express a state. Either they are popular now or their potential to become popular is raising. It is very different.

  -> Thanks! I've often wondered that myself, but I'm starting to find it to be quite daring and maybe it's a sign of a feeling of security in their manhood?
