Gen Z have cancelled skinny jeans and suggested an alternative style to wear
| Last updated
From groovy bootcut flares in the 70s to killer shoulder pads in the 80s - history has proven that major fashion trends come and go every decade.
But, it seems there's one particular garment of clothing that has caused some major division between generations.
They most likely all had a trusty pair of the kecks that saw them through their teenage and young adult years at some point in time.
However, some Gen Z members - whose birthdays lie between 1997 and 2012 - have since seemingly cancelled the über slim style of denim-ware and suggested an alternative style to rock instead.
Never would I have thought that skinny jeans would ever be considered retro, but hey ho.
One TikToker took to the platform to share with her dozens of thousands of followers '3 ways' to style the figure-hugging jeans.
The person, who goes by the handle @momohkd, sarcastically advised views exactly what to do with the first tip telling them: "Throw them out."
She then jokingly popped the black skinny jeans in a bin.
The second 'styling' tip was to 'burn them' while the third creatively advised: "Cut them up and making something else."
Unsurprisingly, Millennials were not happy with the news that their beloved wardrobe essential was now no longer in vogue, with one TikTok user writing: "Just because you don’t like them doesn’t mean we all shouldn’t like it."
"Guys what I kinda like them..." revealed a second while a third echoed: "I... kinda like them..."
Another hit out: "Can we stop hating on [sic]peaces of fabric...its just clothes."
"I know some people hate them but I really like them and fell really comfortable in them," admitted a fifth.
A final skinny jean loyalist warned: "They’ll be back soon just wait..."
The rest of the internet, however, happily chimed in to the skinny jean slander with one TikTok user explaining: "I put a pair on yesterday for the first time in SO long and I immediately took them off."
A second quipped: "I genuinely don’t know how I ever wore skinny jeans, they’re uncomfortable and make me feel insecure like??? What was going on inside my head?"
"I put them on for a joke today and I nearly cried," commented a third.
And a fourth thanked the TikToker, before adding: "Idk why I ever wore skinny jeans like who let me out like that?"
Fellow Gen Z members have since rushed in to share other silhouettes former skinny jean advocates can opt for if they wanted to spruce up their style.
From wide leg and straight leg jeans all the way through to cargo pants and utility trousers - it would appear that the golden era of skinny jeans and all that came with it is finally on its way out.
