Like it or not, when it comes to what’s in style, Gen Z are the ones setting the trends. Between Emma Chamberlain, Addison Rae, and Olivia Rodrigo, we’re looking to Gen Z to see what’s in and what’s out. So, what are Gen Z wearing? We’ll give you a hint—there’s a lot of nostalgia! Here are five trends you’ll be seeing everywhere over the next few months.

Fur Trim

No jacket, coat, or cardigan is complete without fur trim. It’s extra and playful while still being classy and elegant. We’re not going to lie—we’re getting total The Nanny vibes.


Corsets have been super trendy over the past year and they’re not going out of style anytime soon. They’re great for any season and work so well layered.

Elevated Basics

Every closet needs some basics, but basics don’t have to be boring. Elevated basics like white tops with cutout details, coated jeans, mesh tops in neutral colors, and crop tops with asymmetrical hems go perfectly with will statement pieces.


Trends from other decades like the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and ’00s are popping up everywhere. Mini skirts, psychedelic print, and low-rise jeans are totally in.

Modern Preppy

It’s no surprise that sweater vests, tennis skirts, button-downs, and argyle sweaters are everywhere, but the Gen Z way to wear preppy is with a modern vibe by incorporating more grungy elements like leather jackets, Dr. Martens, and ties.
