    is all the craze

    When I was in London I learnt the expression:

    "something is all the craze"

    to express the idea that it was very fashionable etc.

    I doubt this is a formal expression (since nobody use it in formal context), and I would like to know what to use in an academic article, to express such idea.

    thanks

    Re: is all the craze

    You have just done it. You may say the trend or idea is very fashionable (or in fashion / popular).

    Re: is all the craze

    Your definition is correct, and "is all the craze" is not technically incorrect, but the traditional phrases are "is all the rage" or "the latest craze." They both mean the same thing:

    The latest craze among northern England teens is wearing a hooded sweatshirt, or a "hoodie".

    Wearing a "hoodie" is all the rage these days in northern England.
