We’ve all tried to fit into our mother’s vintage jeans, but could the reason behind our style obsession, be her actual, genes? That is what fashion professionals are arguing: the existence of a particular gene, a style gene, otherwise known as our “cool factor”. And, when does this factor begin to show? No, its not linked to your first training bra. It’s actually more likely to be linked to your big girl pants–as the gene is thought to present itself as early as toddler-hood. So, instead of laughing at the kids who show up to school in their bedazzled Superman cape or Michael Jackson-inspired fedora, maybe you should be looking at their parents for style direction or at least, taking notes from these early fashionistas.
