If there is one thing we know about millennials, they like to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Studies have shown that millennials value their physical health alongside the time they have with their family. The Global World Index also found that 76% of millennials exercise regularly. They are also the generation that drinks the least.
Their active lifestyle translates into the way they look and what they wear. CNBC reports that millennials dress not just for work but for leisure as well. So whatever they wear to work, they are most likely to wear on their night-outs. Additionally, millennials are also known to dress either for comfort or to work out. This casual look tends to get them in trouble as some might not look like proper work clothes. However, there is nothing wrong with what they are doing. They’re just being efficient at what they do.
Millennials are bringing in a new fashion trend alongside their generation. This fashion trend relies on looking good while always being ready to be on the go. Here are some ways you can adopt this fashion trend in your life.
Comfort Over Looks
Forget about dresses and suits; shirts are in all the way for millennials. The best thing about shirts is that they are activewear which can be practically used everywhere. You can wear a shirt when you go to the gym, to the beach, or when you’re traveling. It’s also time to replace your heels and leather shoes with sneakers. You won’t be using those every day of the week, and aside from that, they can be very uncomfortable. There are now various designs of sneakers that can be worn alongside formal wear, combining looks and comfort all-in-one.
Comfort over looks is a significant fashion trend for millennials, especially when they live an active lifestyle. Being on the go means, they don’t have the time to go home and change; they want to be on the move as soon as they get out of the house. It means that whatever they are going out with, that’s what they will be wearing for the rest of the day.
Maximizing comfort over looks its own advantages. One of these advantages is that you never have to feel warm under your clothes ever again. Another advantage is that you’re always ready to be fit wherever you go. You can walk for miles without being sore, and you can go wherever you want after work. It’s a good fashion sense that prepares you for any situation.
The accessories market is growing fast when it comes to millennials. They like to spend money on accessories because they are more affordable than some other apparel items in the market. However, they tend to be picky with what they buy since they have their utilities to think about.
Additionally, there is a growing trend regarding millennial men and jewelry. Rings are at the top of their accessory choice, next to necklaces and chains. This is because of male influencers wearing them on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram. These rings and necklaces are usually tailored to a comfort-fit, as many designers explain that men aren’t used to wearing jewelry. These comfort-fit jewelry designs also take a more millennial approach. Many designers are aware of the generation’s active lifestyle.
Ultimately, you shouldn’t be scared to wear jewelry if you have an active lifestyle. Because of millennials, they are now designed to be comfortable wherever you go. This means you don’t have to remove them when you’re planning to go on the jog or work out. They’ll be there without you even knowing about it. The best thing about it is that they make you look good while getting fit.
Customization and Personalization
Customization and personalization are peak millennial fashion design. They like everything personalized, from sneakers to rings, to even water bottles. They even opt to make changes to their clothes if they don’t feel comfortable enough. They are the generation willing to go to lengths to make changes in what they wear if they don’t like it, and they look good by doing so.
Millennials are probably the first generation to introduce the idea of looking good while on the go. Their active lifestyle means that there is no time for stops, which means there isn’t time to change. Once you go out of your house, you have to pick something comfortable and looks good at the same time, because you’ll be out there for the rest of the day. This kind of design philosophy is excellent because it’s convenient, and it’ll only be a matter of time before other generations start getting into it.
