Today’s Youth Invent Bold New Fashion

The phrase “clothes make the man” is more relevant than ever (though “clothes make the woman” is certainly just as fitting), and today’s young adults are always on the prowl for the hottest, latest trends and styles in clothing. The Millennial generation, those individuals born from about 1982 to 1995, has its sights on particular trends and patterns for browsing, selecting, and purchasing and tailoring their duds, and some trends may be surprising to older shoppers and retailers alike. Today’s women are a particularly robust crowd, since the average woman owns thirty outfits, one for every day of the month, compared to the average nine outfits in 1930.
