Nevertheless, the NYT, in a story by Alex Williams, Sept 18, 2015, says the Gen Zs--now in high school or grade school--are on the march and will be in the office before we know it.
But how will we know these stalwarts? Now, the NYT says, they wear jeans and cool sneaks and messy hair for boys--the same for girls but with neat hair.
Apparently these Gen Zs (also known as Centennials) are less worried about style than Millennials.
One aspect will be gender neutrality--Will Smith's son Jaden recently attended prom in a skirt. XX, XY--who knew.
These Gen Zs, like Gen X, also like the "rave" look--which is 1990s.
Stay with me here.
Miley Cyrus is Gen Z--so I guess there is a hootchy aspect.
Oh--and they are back loving Nirvana.
And Normcore--which near as I can tell, is "normal" or baseball caps and jogging pants. But this may be a Brooklyn hipster sendup of "normal," no one knows.
I guess I am as Gen 100 as you get in my earrings and clapped out shorts and desktop computer.
Well, humpf. At least I don't sport what one source called "the laundry day look."
