Jumping off from the debate if this emoji 😂 still exists, the Gen Zs have added another one to the list of things that they think should be “burned.” Skinny jeans are out, loose and baggy jeans are in.

Another TikTok influencer @ayyylexi showed how you can instantly look swag—just by wearing a pair of baggy jeans.

The baggy jeans, even tapered ones and anything that’s loose, has been doing the rounds for the past few years. A spin-off from its ’80s roots, these loose jeans are now paired with oversized hoodies and sweaters, and more daring options such as tube and cropped tops to accentuate the waist.

While the Gen Zs are pushing for this “fashion staple,” the millennials are not taking this sitting down. @dogsn_dumbells shared why she’ll still wear skinny jeans, “How else are we going to show our cute shoes and sandals? I’m not going to get rid of them.” Good point!

But for the millennials who are willing to try this trend out, check out @brittanyxavier for a chic look. An oversized tailored jacket always works.

But are skinny jeans really out? Not for the millennials!
