What do we know about Gen Y?

Gen Y is the term used to describe people born between 1981 and 1996. Most of us are children of the baby boom era and parents of the Alpha generation. They are called Millennials because they are the ones who came of age around the turn of the millennium.

The trend worldwide is for young people to postpone marriage. They are having fewer children. They were less open to sexual relations than previous generations. People in the West are less likely to be members of religions, but they may be attracted to spirituality.

 



Sociologist Kathleen Shapuits calls it the boomerang generation or the Peter Pan generation, suggesting that Gen Y delayed the coming of age process longer than those born earlier. They also suggest that Gen Y members have lived with their parents longer.

Members of the previous generation got married and started careers, while Gen Y youth saw marriages end in divorce and that it is not a realistic expectation to get everything right the first time in building a career.




Gen Y came of age in an era when the internet was also influencing the entertainment industry. Studies have been developed to answer the question of how the spread of information in society influences human behaviour. This can be referred to as the hipster effect.

 

 



 

Computer games and computer culture have led to a decline in book reading. The tendency for teachers to now “test teach” has also led to a decline in lateral thinking skills.

This is just another blog! It’s called Fashion Style Online.

Fashion definitely rules in clothing. In our online magazine, we want to bring our readers news and interesting facts that will help to enrich their everyday lives. We believe that everyone is entitled to the soul-lifting moments. When we wear a garment, not just for its function, but for its aesthetics.
We express our individuality, our emotions and our thoughts about the world. Fashion necessarily dominates clothing, but anything that has a formal appearance can be fashionable, and even an idea or a vision can be fashionable. We want our readers to read posts that make their everyday lives better.
The word fashion usually refers to a trend of a particular culture or age. This often involves dress, protocol and rules of social interaction. In the most general sense, fashion is a system of customs that govern social interaction.
What I do is about living the best life possible and enjoying the fullness of life around you. From what you wear, to how you live, how you love.
