Maybe you’ve been gravitating toward a mishmash of thoughtfully curated outfits à la White Lotus‘ Portia more often than usual lately. Or perhaps the idea of Simon Miller’s sky-high kiwi-colored bubble clogs and a fur-trimmed bolero isn’t out of the question anymore. No, you’re not going through a fashion identity crisis; you’re just embracing your inner Gen Z style.
At the height of the pandemic, Bloomberg released a report that confirmed everything fashion people already knew: Gen Z is on the rise.

Scroll on below to see what’s on Gen Z editors’ wish lists this year, and don’t be surprised if these picks make it onto your algorithm three months from now.
