Most millennials say they’re trendy in 2021
Despite a wave of attacks on millennial fashion trends (think: skinny jeans and midsuits), the generation is holding their heads high.
A YouGov poll of 2,349 Americans found that Millennials (55%) are the generation most likely to say they are very trendy (20%) or somewhat trendy (35%). The youngest age group, Gen Z, is generally divided on whether or not to say they are fashionable: 46% say they are, while 40% say they are not. .
Older Americans seem to think they are not very fashionable, or not at all fashionable. About two in five Gen Xers (38%) say they are fashionable, while the majority of Gen Xers say they are not (55%). Three in ten baby boomers (29%) think they should be considered trendy, but two-thirds (67%) don’t think so.
