As zoomers begin to age out of youth culture and “y2k” nostalgia as fashion peaks and becomes mainstream, what do we think the next 5-10 years look like? Indie sleaze takeover? Skinny Jean revival? Think about how current and impending political and socioeconomic trends may factor in as well…let’s hear some predictions

      i’m a reseller and the only category I see staying alive and strong is football shirts and its training gear, with match worn and player issued generating the hype as a premium product; the plentiful mid 2ks kustom kulture cholo vintage stuff out there catching on as a cheap alternative to designer’s zoomercore; your local chavs aesthetics from late 2ks will rise again

    I’m not sure what it will look like yet, it I’m predicting that an aesthetic style will coalesce around the “core core” doomer sentiment and having a paranoid/schizo attitude will become the new trendy mental illness to replace the performative autism shit that zoomers adopted. I’m envisioning aviator shades, messy layers, “gorpy” or tactical footwear, 9/11 truth CIS deep state conspiracy as a visual aesthetic. Most young people are completely disillusioned with status quo, embracing alienation as an act of defiance is the next logical step for culture.

      when trump wins again the conspiracy/paranormal culture will become en vogue

      country music seems to be making a come back on the charts, plus beyonce and lana del rey will release country albums. Im picturing the cowboy look trending, the redneck middle american look, with trump in office and country trending, looking like a hick might be in

      every edgy try hard repeats this almost verbatim as their ‘reason for dressing the way they do" already. it’s not new in the first place and is certainly not groundbreaking

    skinny jeans wont come back in fashion until the 2030s when we have 2010s nostalgia. this is the 20 year rule.

    When y2k nostalgia ends i think the youth will have to bite the bullet and look deeper into the 2000s, emo, scene, early hipster fashion might come back if they arent already back.

    I think a futurism might take hold and nostalgia could die though. Look at that robot suit zenadaya wore at the dune premier
    Thinking more fashion forward than backwards.
    I think aliens, robots, even cryptids might be influential, i call this /x/ core

    on a personal level i would like to see real 80s nostalgia and have big hair make a come back, women with big hair is my fetish…..

      they were all wearing skinny jeans in the early 2000s when baggy was in

        I remember those times. Skinny jeans for guys didn’t exist so you either had to buy girls pants or sew up a pair or rustlers until you couldn’t move in them.

      If you have a good body skinny jeans look good on everyone, you look better in skinny jeans then you do in baggy ones. They don’t need to “come back”. if anything looks good on you it’s timeless and you should just wear it. People who dress based on what’s popular have brain rot and sabotage themselves.

        This. This is the difference between trend starters and trend followers. Trend starters wear what looks good on them and can careless what a bunch of gays are wearing at the moment, which automatically makes them based. Anyone here can be the ignition for a new trend, but are too much of a b***h or too fat to do it.

      2010s nostalgia
      > Indie sleaze takeover?
      just a stupid buzzword with no cultural significance
      >Skinny Jean revival?
      already happening, they are likely gonna end up as popular as they were last time.
      >skinny jeans wont come back in fashion until the 2030s when we have 2010s nostalgia. this is the 20 year rule.
      skinny jeans have already made a significant comeback in fashion spaces, the opium subculture is an example. we definitely will not need to wait until the 2030s for 2010s nostalgia to take over. its probably gonna be more like 3-4 more years tops. y2k is just so played out and corny already and we’re not halfway through the decade.
      >I think a futurism might take hold and nostalgia could die though
      nope, techwear peaked in popularity a couple years ago, nostalgia will continue going strong

      Man I hope so. We can’t make it through the whole damn 21st century just remixing 20th century shit like a blind AI repeating its training data.

    next up will be nostalgia for the dying era of television and magazines with some ironic twist, think pirates of the caribean, lost, 24, idol, harry potter and twilight.

    maybe genuine re-appreciation for metal as a genre too.

    The 1980s. Wide yet svelte silhouettes. More colours. Big mascara. A defiance against the hellish impoverished drabness of the coming decades,

    women wearing big 80s hair will make a come back, the first ones on this trend will stand out cause people are use to straight hair

    You know how workwear is popular and guys who don’t do manual like to dress in carhart and work boots? What about the opposite where guys who DO work manual labor start dressing like they work in offices? Could be the next big thing if you ask me.

    fashion ppl will realize how unhealthy consumerism is and will start investing into more long lasting diy/thrifted pieces or cheap clothes made from artists idek
    or if they invest into expensive pieces, they will purchase more generally popular clothes
    or clothes thats easy to pair w/ anything

    whats the point in investing into unique expensive pieces that will become irrelevant once the designer dies or something

    idek
    but um
    idek
    low rise jeans and new rocks are cool heheh

    The zoomer broccoli hair will be replaced by a new hair style – the revival of gelled spikes, but with a modern twist. Possibly combined with fashion mullet or faded sides.

    • Anonymous says:

      It’s cyclical. 90’s into y2k fading, next up early 2000’s. I’m still surprised bleached tips didn’t blow up. Maybe some guido jersey shore core, Tap Out shirts, oh wow they’re vintage now.

      Just like all trends now (with the internet) it will be less uniform and more diversified.

      Gelled spikes, return of the bieber cut. Maybe instead of gelled spikes with bleached tips we’ll get more gelled spikes with colored spikes.

      >mid to late 2000s scene core
      man scene lasted way longer than it should have already, it was still around in the mid 2010s. I’m pretty surer it’ll be dead for good.

        mid to late 2000s scene core will come back, is back

        I never quite got which specific scene they were referring to. The rave scene?

        • Anonymous says:

          scene is a post-counterculture subculture. Riding on the wave of punk, goth, emo, etc, it was an attempt at generating a new counterculture in that same vein, but… it wasn’t protesting anything, or unified by any major metric, or anything. It’s just derivative. Even the name is just derived from being in a particular scene, just like you’re confused by. It’s… "the scene". That’s it. Typically associated with nonsense like colored hair and piercings, most of the time scrubbed clean so it’s mostly easily approved of opinions by the cultureless normal. It’s very much a diet counterculture (hence post-counterculture subculture).

            Colorful nihilism, shorn of the flim-flam political positions of other subcultures. I can dig it.

            It definitely has appeal, clearly. I do think it’s vapid, but I’m also not a fan of the previous countercultures much either, so whatever.

    We will enter a post/anti fashion era where having nice well composed outfits will be considered cringe. “Cool” people will wear bad ill fitted clothing, but will have attractive bodies and faces. For example, imagine a male model wearing too-long $12 rustler jeans from walmart and a Hurley logo tee under an unzipped hanes hoodie with converse with a brimmed beanie.

    this is why I’ve been wearing all black with a few jeans and debadged dickies for over 9 years now. maybe I’ll change the bottoms sometime, but I like being a cartoon character that never changes. also, I am poor

    I don’t think "emo" (mall shit) has completely bloomed yet, and angst must surely be at an all time high? But maybe that has the opposite effect – it was popular during a time of relative prosperity
