Millennials and Gen Z have a lot in common, but there are some things about the younger generation that can leave us scratching our heads. From fashion choices to communication styles, here are eight things that confuse millennials about Gen Z.
Hot Hoodies in the Summer
One thing that confuses millennials about Gen Z is their fashion choices, particularly the trend of wearing hoodies in the summer. “I want to know why Gen Z wears those hot hoodies in the summer,” one millennial wrote.
Skipped the Awkward Phase
“Why does it seem like they all skipped the awkward phase? It’s like they came out of elementary school knowing how to coordinate outfits and drink Starbucks.”
Lack of Leading Celebrities
“Where are all the Gen Z celebrities? Apart from Tom Holland and Zendaya, I cannot think of a leading man or woman in Hollywood in their 20s. Ryan Gosling is playing Ken in the Barbie movie and he’s 41.”
Gen Z’s communication style can be confusing for millennials, particularly when it comes to email. “I was working with a few to get something done and instead of sending ONE email with the information, three separate people emailed one person random piecemeal information with ZERO context,” one millennial wrote. Gen Z, please remember: email isn’t the same as text.
Curly Hair Trend
The current trend of curly hair on top of the head is a mystery to many millennials, who wonder if Gen Z is getting perms. “How do all these young guys get their hair to look (curly at the top) that way that’s super in right now?”
“What does based mean?” And all the other Gen-Z slang.
Nostalgia for the 90s
“The fact they might think about the 90s the same way I thought about the 80s or 70s when I was a child of the 90s, a long time ago.”
Unique Sense of Humor
Gen Z’s sense of humor can be difficult for millennials to articulate, but it is often precise and unique. “They have a very weird and strange sense of humor. It’s hard to articulate what it is exactly, but it’s quite precise.”
Claiming Social Media and Influencer Fame
“Why do some of them act like they pioneered the social media/influencer boom or look at me surprised because I have Snapchat, etc, even though many of these came out when millennials like me were in our early 20s and the core demographic?”
