With an evolved and extremely unconventional thinking, Gen Z has become incomprehensible for the older generations, especially the baby boomers.

Gen Z is all about comfortable yet fashion-savvy clothing; that’s why athleisure outfits are a huge hit among them.
They are more than confident in pairing bike shorts with an oversized t-shirt, and if that doesn’t suit them, the post-millennials will go with a crop top without giving it much thought.
These young people know how to combine comfort with something trending in a way that they can feel desirable.

Tie-Dye was so popular back in the day that when the style was gone, it was surprising to see people moving on without a backward glance. But then, the internet generation became the savior of this fashion style and brought the abstract pattern of colors back to life.
Now, teenagers are dyeing their clothes at home and creating new style developments every day!
Social Justice is Part of Fashion Now
We have already established that Gen Z has a different view of this world, and so, they set their own trends. Part of this new outlook is preferring brands and companies that support social justice.
The young people of today’s world are all about sharing news and information every few minutes. So, they are well-aware of new situations regarding environmental and social justice. These eccentric thinkers support those businesses only that have a strong social voice.
Unusual and short-lived trends are common among the young population, but older people have a hard time understanding Gen Z’s way of life.
It’s mostly due to the considerable age gap and the advancement of technology that happened in less than two decades and separated baby boomers from the newer generations.
