Side Parts, Skinny Jeans, and Millennials
With staples like the poodle skirts of the 50’s, disco style of the 70’s, and the velour tracksuits of the 2000’s, fashion trends have been constantly coming back in and out of style. If you wait long enough, what’s trendy now will soon be a thing of the past.
Recently, TikTok teens are doubling down on millennial fashion staples. Gen Z has declared war on side parts and skinny jeans. Some users are saying that they would rather drop dead than be seen with a side part and skinny jeans.
Millennials are not having it and issued rebuttals against the teens.
Some Millennials, like Melinda (@melindaxlatin), are taking it in stride and making playful commentary on the whole trend. In her video, she calls the TikTok area “Old Tok” making fun of the generational war.
Other users, like Stephanie (@Mama_flynn), have taken to roasting Gen Z for past trends. She brings up the 2018 dangerous tide pod challenge the Gen Z teens started.
At the end of the day, fashion is subjective. Do whatever makes you happy, and you’ll always look good doing it.
