I'm in some shelters or outside

I do not run nor do I hide -

I hear your voice and answer back,

but when you sense me, I don't last

-

I'm found in fashion, changed a bit

but you can't see me - that's not it.

So if you're listening for my name

You'll hear me call again, again.

Are you

An echo?

Echos can be heard in caves (a type of shelter) or in mountains. It can't run or hide, because it's not physically real.

I hear your voice and answer back,

but when you sense me, I don't last

Echos answer your voice but fade away.

I'm found in fashion, changed a bit

but you can't see me - that's not it.

Fashions echo each other in history.

So if you're listening for my name

You'll hear me call again, again.

Perhaps this refers to when you shout "Echo", it shouts it back to you again and again.
