The distinguishing characteristic of the iGeneration is a perfect sleek middle parting. Middle parts are now all the rage amongst the TikTok stars since they are seen as youthful and help create a more symmetrical face, in contrast to the Millennials’ preference for the side part.

Skinny jeans are a staple in the Millennial wardrobe because they elongate the legs and slim the body. The iGen think skinny jeans are so last decade, despite their popularity for almost a decade. They have a penchant for slouchy, loose-fitting, and flared denim styles, such as mom jeans and slacks.

8. Baguette Bags

Instagram stars like Elite series breakout starlet Valentina Zenere, who often accessories her outfits with one of these bags, are among the many who have popularized this trend.

iGen’s fashion bible of choice, if we were to sum it up in a single word, would be Y2K, shorthand for a style popular in the late ’90s. The iGen is responsible for the resurgence of Y2K fashion because they have a deep and abiding love for all things retro. You can see what’s popular in terms of clothing on TikTok, such as velvet tracksuits and scarf tops. Fashions popularized by pop icons from the Millennials’ formative years, such as Britney Spears & Paris Hilton, are once again making a comeback.

11. Recycled Clothes

The majority of iGeneration agree that major corporations should take responsibility for addressing societal and environmental concerns. These consumers are sending powerful statements via their own purchasing habits, which typically include the selection of sustainable textiles manufactured from recycled materials and the support of social justice-oriented companies. A lot of them choose to shop secondhand and avoid buying anything made of nonbiodegradable materials. It makes perfect sense since we’re discussing a curious generation that came of age during the rise of social media and is accustomed to exchanging ideas and information casually and immediately.

So now that you know all the things that are coming into trend again, the bell-bottom jeans you had packed away can finally be worn again! Make sure you choose clothes that make you feel good and not spend more on what seems trendy. So what is your favorite iGen trend that is making a comeback? Let us know in the comments section!
