Regardless of what generation you come from, there’s no doubt about it—Gen Z is leading fashion at the moment. From canceling where we can part our hair to telling us what jeans we need to throw out, zoomers are no doubt taking the lead on style.
Although you may not agree with a lot of Gen Z fashion, there are some things that you may find you like. Take a look at some of the best fashion tips that we can learn from youthful zoomers when shopping for clothing.
Tiny Bags are in, and Big Bags are Out
Depending on how old you are, you may remember the trend of micro purses during the 90s and early 2000s. Well, it’s safe to say that those tiny baguette bags are back— and with a bang. Even though a tiny purse may not be the most practical for carrying anything beyond a pair of sunglasses and your wallet, if you’re looking to be fashionable, then the tinier the bag, the better.
For a minute, animal prints were considered to be tacky. But, you guessed it— they’re back and making headlines. From cow print to cheetah, don’t be afraid to let your inner animal roar on your clothing. Whether it’s pants or a dress, don’t be afraid to wear it in animal print— Gen-Z approves.
If you thought that bucket hugs were gone after Gilligan’s Island, think again. Bucket hats are the latest rage for both men and women. According to Generation Z, it can add flair to just about any outfit, whether formal or casual. Want to get crazy? Get one and animal print—why not?
By now, you probably heard that skinny jeans are officially canceled; however, just how skinny are we talking? Generation Z doesn’t just approve straight-leg jeans, but full-on flares have been given the green light. Regardless of the color or the print, the bigger the pant leg, the better.
Big Scrunchy Socks
The famous trend of the 90s is back again and in a big way. Scrunchy socks riding around your ankles are the way to go. The great news is that they are super comfortable, and they can be slimming for your legs. Pair them with a nice pair of ankle boots or tennis shoes, and voila, you’re a Gen-Z fashion icon.
Zoomers are all about making the old new again. You’ll be happy to know that all those graphic sweatshirts that look like something your uncle Larry would have worn in 1995 are now considered chic. The great news is that shirts like these are best found in thrift stores saving you even more money on being fashionable.
