Do most teenagers and young adults dress like wannabe gangsters these days? Watch
Maybe college and university are two different entities in their own right when it comes to fashion. I'm of a broad build and flex my legs a lot so skinny jeans really don't suit me.
Interestingly, I see a lot more people my own age wearing regular jeans when I visit Bath, which is only about 35 miles away by road, or just under 30 miles away by rail. At the same time, most people my age in Swindon, where I live, wear either tracksuits or skinny jeans.
I think tracksuits/athletic wear have been popular for quite a few years now. It used to be associated with chavs/gangs etc (and maybe still is to a degree) but now a lot more types of people wear them.
At my college, it’s generally a mix of hoodies, jackets, skinny/slim/ripped/regular jeans, joggers, tackle bottoms and general tracksuits/athletic style clothing like Nike, Adidas, EA 47 etc.
I also disagree with you when you say that 2000’s clothing is more casual/comfortable than 2010’s clothing. If anything, I see people are generally dressing more casual than ever before. You didn’t see that many people wearing things like tracksuits and hoodies in 2005, apart from the undesirable types I mentioned above, now almost everyone wears them.
