If youre a millennial and love wearing ankle or secret socks, you might want to move along because if youre a fashionista, the latest sock trend will leave you feeling old.

The Generation Z crew have a way of making us older folk feel even older simply by their fashion choices. Gen Z are those born between 1997 and 2012.

A few years ago, Gen Z decided that skinny jeans were a no-no and most of us followed instructions and threw out all our skinnies, yes even the one that took us years to find.

Weve slowly started getting into a more relaxed fit. I for one am very happy about this. I hated skinny jeans anyway.

Now theres a new trend that is dividing the generations.

If youre still showing off your ankles while wearing a shoe you would usually wear a secret or ankle socks with, like sneakers, boots or pumps, then youre failing on the fashion front.

According to the Gen-Z, one now has to wear proper socks, the length of the sock doesnt matter, with your shoes.

Yes even when you go to the gym. That sporty look that you thought was so cool, is now out!

People have now moved the discussion onto X.

Gen Z over here trying to cancel ankle socks now??? Arent you guys wearing things we used to wear back in the early 2000s nowadays? Make it make sense, says @cestxlavi.

Personally, Im happy to follow the trend because I keep losing my secret socks anyway. Longer socks are much easier to keep track of.
