Gen Z, Millennials, and the battle for style

“No skinny jeans,” “No hair parted dow in the middle.” At the moment, these are the two newmain disputes going on between Millennials and Gen Z. However, this is not the first time an encounter between two different demographics has happened. Style evolution has completely normal and has been going around for centuries, always creating havoc. Fashion is one of the primary key factors that identify a generation, so let's dive right into the battle for style.

It’s no secret that skinny jeans vs. baggy jeans are one of the biggest fashion disputes on social media right now. But what is more flattering? It seems that these two clothing items have become a staple for these generations. Baggy clothes are a current trend among Gen Z, and skinny jeans are a trend that has been going on for a while among Millennials. The latter though, were the ones that wore baggy, wide-leg, and straight-leg jeans first and decided years ago that they were not good enough. Having moved on to skinny jeans, it’s understandable that they don’t feel like going back to the chaotic fashion sense of the late ’90s and early 2000s. So as we search throughout history, we can see that style tends to be a polemic topic among society, but in the end, this is part of the evolution of the fashion industry.
