Youth trendy style

Don’t Be Afraid to Dress Like Your Kids

MADE IN THE SHADE A pair of gold-tone sunglasses keeps things cool. Louis Vuitton shirt, $2,300, hat, $690, and sunglasses, $1,040,

As the kids know, rules were meant to be broken, and right now the same goes for grown-up fashion. To your delight, you may even find a trend you retired years ago is back in the youthful fashion vernacular. Wearing socks and sandals with a pair of shorts is straight out of your high school yearbook—and your son’s new wardrobe, too. For dads, there’s more common generational ground in menswear than ever before: for their spring 2018 collection, Balenciaga made dad style something to aspire to with its still-relevant collection of geeky sportswear. The dad sneaker, inspired by the thick-soled orthopedic-style trainers beloved by men of a certain age, is also still popular. And don’t shy away from unexpected proportions like a cargo jacket from Tod’s, or unusual pairings like a burgundy polo from Z Zegna with printed shorts from Sacai. Below, check out 12 ways to remind Gen Z exactly where its style genes came from. — Jenny Hartman
