TL;DR Jeans Jeans Jeans! GenZ says NO to skinny jeans, but Millennials say YES!
Jeans are our tried and true. No matter what fashion trends are coming in and out, jeans have remained a staple. And Gen Z has something to say about it. That’s right; GenZ declared war on the beloved skinny jeans. Skinny jeans continue to be at the top of the selling charts. Gen Z has declared war and is not having this. They’ve taken to their main battlegrounds of Instagram and TikTok to insist that skinny jeans are out of style and to stop buying the “outdated” Fashion.
While the whole dethroning skinny jeans movement seems silly, the numbers show they might be on to something, as baggier styles of jeans have been selling more and more. In the past year, there was a 76% increase in searches for oversized jeans. Yet trend analysts have yet to be convinced. Brands are still releasing new lines of skinny jeans, and they are selling. For every Gen Z wishing away the skinny jean cut, a millennial insist on their absolute love for the body-hugging jean.
