“Idk what happened. I don’t feel like I can dress in the y2k/younger gen z style. I work a corporate job but don’t need to dress business casual often,” @mccallhansen wrote in the overlay text. “I don’t know if it’s covid or what, but I’ve lost all identity of style, and everything that I identify with is way too expensive for a young working budget.”
Other Millennial women empathized with @mccallhansen’s fashion struggle. Trendy clothing brands such as Shein, Forever 21 and Aritzia are notorious for quickly shifting between fashion “micro-trends” in response to Gen Z’s rapid TikTok trend cycle.
“Yup, the pandemic completely threw my sense of style,” a TikToker commented. “I have no clue what I’m doing or what I want anymore.”
“It’s horrible out there, shopping used to be so much fun,” someone chimed in.
Some viewers offered @mccallhansen shopping tips to avoid feeling “lost” when buying clothes. Many Millennial women have found refuge in shopping at thrift stores.
“Tbh, I hated shopping until I started thrifting, now I really look forward to it – it’s like a treasure hunt!” a TikToker suggested.
“I thrift a lot to get unique pieces that I actually like and then pair them with basics like high-waisted jeans, linen pants, & crop tops,” another added.
“Buy what looks good on you, and you feel confident in,” someone said.
