Keeping track of generation labels? If so, you may know that Gen Z, the currently young generation, has had PLENTY to say on TikTok about millennials and their style. Too busy to worry about current TikTok wars? We’ll clue you in: THIS IS WAR!
Yep, according the Gen Z, “skinny jeans and side parts” are completely passe’, as in NOT COOL, as in “old”. The viral idea of this created an uproar, resulting in the choosing of sides...Team Skinny (Skinny Jeans and Side Parts Forever) and Team Flare Jeans and Center Parts.
In true “what goes around, comes around” fashion, ESPECIALLY in fashion, the laugh really is on Gen Z. In making fun of their elder Millennial siblings (and bosses), they don’t even realize that their own style harkens back to the heyday of their...GRANDMOTHERS! (Now that just CAN’T be cool, can it?).
Gen Z grandmas were once hotties wearing bell-bottoms and
center parts and listening to classic rock and disco WAAAAY back in the 1970s. Knowing this may very well change the narrative about how cool this look is today, but like everything in life, the more things change, the more they are REIMAGINED!
Movies and culture, reflective of life, exist in an endless cycle of RECYCLE, and fashion is certainly no different...but fashion allows a lot of latitude for personal STYLE. So ladies, wear your skinnies and side parts, or center parts and flares, boot cuts, bell bottoms or leggings and sweatshirts or preppy plaid suits—the bottom line is to find a style that suits you, where you are in life and how you feel about what you wear and then just wear it, unapologetically and proudly...YOU Do YOU!
