From the 90’s to 2018: The Comparison between the styles of Millennials and GenZ
Change is the only constant, no matter what field are you talking about. Whether it is technology or fashion, nothing lasts forever. Time to time everything changes. The primary cause of change in anything is the generation gap. Generation gaps are the difference between the thought process of consecutive generations.
The latest generation is the Genz that mostly have the people from 1995 to 2005 and the people from the mid-80s to 1995 are the elder ones called the millennials or the GenY. So how did the fashion industry change in these two generations?
Bollywood is the trendsetter in India. Indians love to wear, and style like the Bollywood stars and some crazy fans end up changing their looks entirely like their favourite stars, and some try to use the best parts of the trends in the current style.
In this article, we will explore some of the most significant fashion trends in the two consecutive generations namely GenY and GenZ.
Remember Rangeela? A Urmila and Aamir starer movie in the mid-90s. The film showed us some glimpse of the tapori style in the mid-90s. In the picture depicted above, Urmila is wearing a denim shirt and denim jeans whereas Aamir is wearing a checks shirt and denim jeans.
This was a huge in both the terms of theatres and the fashion as well. But does anyone dresses like this today? Yes, even today our Bollywood stars love to wear denim shirt but not in the way these two actors wore it.
Even today Bollywood stars wear denim shirts, making it an all time favourite for everyone. See the picture below of Varun Dhawan. After viewing this picture, you will definitely urge to add denim shirts in your wardrobe.

The Love for Dungarees
If you watch television today, you must know that how widespread is this movie even today. Kajol was my favourite character in this movie because of her punk attitude. But what else was even more impressive was her dungaree style.
Dungarees have again entered the world of fashion today. From teenagers to the adults, girls love to dress up in dungarees.
Not just the girls even some of the guys from the 90s were in love with Dungarees, why? Because of our very favourites, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan were the brand ambassadors for Dungarees.
