Trying on Gen Z vs Millennial's Fashion | What generation am I?

Trying on Gen Z vs Millennial's Fashion | What generation am I?

Skinny jeans are out, and so are side parts and this emoji 😂 okay but seriously in this video I thought it would be fun to look at how styles have changed from the 2010s to the 2020s, and compare what Millennials are wearing to what Gen Z is wearing. And, as someone who is born in 1996, right on the cusp of each generation, this is a bit of a self-discovery journey for me as well. What generation do I fit in best with? Let me know in the comments, and also let me know which outfits you like the best!

    Thanks for sharing TLC. They were the Queens of baggy outfits



  2. Bobbysox on November 1, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Both gen z and millennials will eventually grow up and realise that 22 is not "getting old".
    *eye roll



  3. Meilyn Woods on November 1, 2021 at 10:51 am

    I’m gen z (21) but I violated every rule that makes you old:side part, skinny jeans, this emoji👉🏾😂. I don’t think it really matters but I’m literally 21

    Edit: I also remember buying my first pair of skinny jeans as a girl



  4. Justin Moore on November 1, 2021 at 10:52 am

    This is so Ridiculous to me like there is no such thing as a millennial style or z style. Literally people of all ages wear whatever the hell they want. Don’t get me started on over assumption z not going for skinny jeans or millennials for it….as if you can’t walk into a high school today and not see a handful wearing it or as if you can’t find a tone of 28 year old who can care less for them. People wear what they want like fashion is not not based on arbitrary generational demographic labels lol(like that’s pretty straight forward) but just the individual person themselves lol.



  5. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 10:52 am

    But wait the crop tops are in ( general fashion trends 4 fall / winter season tho?)



  6. Stephanie Khan on November 1, 2021 at 10:53 am

    It’s also funny because I was wearing the baggy jeans and chunky boots in middle school in the early 90s



  7. Piyu Sarkar on November 1, 2021 at 10:53 am

    I think it’s not just about time and trends. Some trends I see are definitely very geared towards younger people like teens or early 20s and they’re definitely specifically meant for gen z. So many times I see youtubers’ hauls and try ons and so many dresses and tops just looks so young and cute and not mature. Big and baggy is obviously something everyone can do, but those tiny pastel cutesy cropped stuff are gen z. Tbh you skipped a lot of trends



  8. Jane Gibbon on November 1, 2021 at 10:53 am

    I’m a millie in mom jeans.



  9. 00 00 on November 1, 2021 at 10:56 am

    I was born in 1988 and never hopped on the skinny jeans trend. It was always leggings for me. I found skinny jeans so uncomfortable. I still wear my leggings and my trapeze blouses like it’s 2010 so maybe I’m a millennial I guess. I do own one pair of mom jeans and they are more comfortable than skinnies but I don’t wear them as often as I wear my leggings.



  10. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Yo time goes waaayyy too fast 4 u kidzzzz!



  11. Kat Murphy on November 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    I’m sorry but all the gen z looks are 90s looks which is basically just baby millennial looks. Thank God low cut jeans didn’t make it back though😂 things recycle so much faster these days!



  12. Sue M. on November 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    The Millennial Sweater & Boots was my favorite outfit!! I like the more up to date combat boots but I like the rust colored sweater though!



  13. Danceswithveils Lily on November 1, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Is that leg kick a real thing that gen z does😂



  14. B Bowser on November 1, 2021 at 11:02 am

    I’m a cusper too (1996 for the win) and I agree ill be claiming i’m Gen z!!!



  15. Emma Francis on November 1, 2021 at 11:04 am

    My style is definitely more fitting with the Baby Boomers, but both Millennial and Gen Z look great on you😍



  16. Sandra Vasquez on November 1, 2021 at 11:04 am

    After watching this I feel like gen Z ripped off end of gen X beginning of millennials.



  17. Annabel Apurva-madhuri on November 1, 2021 at 11:05 am

    As a millennial I feel attacked 😹



  18. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Study fashion. This is all norms. But you are way deep in ur feels! Lol



  19. Alittle OddMe on November 1, 2021 at 11:05 am

    I’ve in between the generations basically so I’m gonna just say this I mix both styles together because of my body type. I’d rather look good than spend a ton of money and be wasteful.



  20. Heyxadam on November 1, 2021 at 11:08 am

    GIRL YOU CAN PULL LITERALLY ANYTHING OFF!!! ur a queen



  21. Stephanie Khan on November 1, 2021 at 11:09 am

    I’m a cusper too but I’m between Millennial and Gen X. I claim Millennial unless they do something that makes me SMH. Then I pretend I’m a Gen X.



  22. Sandra Vasquez on November 1, 2021 at 11:09 am

    I thought Gen Z created the battle by insulting our side part and something else. Edit. Oh yes skinny’s.



  23. Marketing Harry on November 1, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Both styles look good, but as a guy I am just all about wearing whatever is convenient and that’s it. 😉



  24. Monica Crowe on November 1, 2021 at 11:11 am

    From a cusper between Gen X & Millennial, I gotta say … Boots with chunky heels are 90s all the way. Not 2010s! Love your videos, girl. Stay young and cool 🙂



  25. Heyxadam on November 1, 2021 at 11:14 am

    QUEEN OF SUNGLASSES



  26. Vivian Thomas on November 1, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Lol this is just about fashion. You can enjoy trends no matter what your age is. Being aware or not aware of trends doesn’t make you a certain age? 🧐



  27. Bibi Raven on November 1, 2021 at 11:14 am

    its all so boring – I like to wear lotsa crazy prints and shit – just dont give a fuck lol (I’m 46 so i guess thats eighties attitude)



  28. Emily Parr on November 1, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Where are all the zillenials at? We get the best of both worlds!



  29. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Check out ll cool j … gen x reference so mono joggers , baggy clothes not new lol



  30. Arielle Olivia on November 1, 2021 at 11:20 am

    your Gen Z jeans are so cute.. where are they from? (Both the blue & black pair)



  31. Kat 00 on November 1, 2021 at 11:21 am

    As an elder millennial, we remember this happening last time there was a shift between two generations! We’re not feuding, but we are interested 🙂



  32. HannaCreative on November 1, 2021 at 11:25 am

    As an ‘94 girl I would def. consider myself a Millennial and remember all those 2010 trends you mentioned. But I would also argue that it’s more so Fashion trends changing than only about generational differences… (though we do def. have those ) bc what I think mostly when I see the Gen-Z trends is “OMG THAT is coming back in style??” 😂 (I also love this Emoji and if this make me old, so what, I don‘t mind). Fashion is mainly about re-inventing old ideas and finding new ways to combine them. The 80ies and 90ies have been coming back so heavily the past idk 6-7 years and now it‘s just getting more and more. But sometimes I feel like younger people don‘t realise this, claiming to have invented a style which then does bug me a little… I realise this makes me sound really old and probably this is what getting older feels like – having lived long enough to see things go out of style and come back into style again 😂😂
    At the end of the day, this video showed me once again that I’m getting more and more comfortable doing my thing, not caring to follow all the new trends and quite honestly, being called „old“ by a 16 year old feels like a compliment in my book. Getting older is fun and I wanna embrace every bit of it 🤗🌿😂🙈🙆🏻‍♀️😝🙌🏻



  33. cmeerkat on November 1, 2021 at 11:27 am

    Your fashion & Gen z vs millennial content is my fave lol



  34. Mal Kulaas on November 1, 2021 at 11:28 am

    I’m 21 years old and I actually don’t know what I am. Sometimes it is a blessing not knowing something



  35. Amanda Jordan on November 1, 2021 at 11:34 am

    ’91 millennial here. I didn’t realize there even was a war between us and Gen z. I think Gen z are all wonderful! Of course, I always hated skinny jeans, so maybe that’s why lol.



  36. Sandra Vasquez on November 1, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Umm combat boots, we definitely rocked them back in the day. Is back in the day a millennial saying? Haha



  37. Ally Celebrates on November 1, 2021 at 11:37 am

    Best part of this video is you saying: where what you want. 😍



  38. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 11:39 am

    First off gen x here lol… love your back ground … love how you rock the various cross gen fashions!



  39. Amethyst Pages ✨ on November 1, 2021 at 11:40 am

    You look great in all of the looks! 😊 But I think you look happier and more comfortable in the Gen Z ones. 👍 I was already thinking about buying a pastel coloured atleisure outfit, but now I’m completely convinced! Going to online shop right now! 😊 😊



  40. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 11:41 am

    You make this video so visually pleasing ( content awesome as well! ) love the shades gurrrrllllll lol



  41. Joanne Lesk on November 1, 2021 at 11:41 am

    Doc Martins are Gen X. Lol just saying.



  42. pce12345 on November 1, 2021 at 11:42 am

    They both look lame



  43. Jackie C on November 1, 2021 at 11:42 am

    I wore my mono jogger to Denist too ! They thought who’s this ll cool j – dont front !



  44. Salvador Macedo on November 1, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Where did you buy that green cardigan? Does anyone know where I can find a similar one?
    PS: Loved the video ❤️



  45. Darkshadow on November 1, 2021 at 11:44 am

    I’m born in 94 and I considered myself both but currently more millennial.



  46. Jesscrayons on November 1, 2021 at 11:44 am

    These outfits are all very USA American. That must be where the millennials and Gen z live.



  47. SleepyZzz on November 1, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Gen Z looks bad lol



  48. Deyaniris P on November 1, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Im a Millennial for sure! 😉



  49. Naomi wright on November 1, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Loved the lifestyle video!! You also rock both the gen z and millennial outfits 😍



  50. Sophia Narvaez on November 1, 2021 at 11:47 am

    Totally agree! It’s not about generations it’s just about 10s vs 20s trends. I’m a cusper born in 94 but I identify as a Millennial and I definitely wear both styles because like you said, we’re just evolving our fashions with the times!
