Lunch Break – Parents, Kids & Fashion Trends

Today we are talking about fashion trends then and now.

On The Show: 

When you were a kid in school what was something you needed to have your parents buy you? Now what are somethings your kids are asking you to buy for them? The Lunch Break hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel share their fashion must haves when they were kids.

What some of are viewers said during the show: 

James LeiteltMy son just told me the other day that Champion clothes and crocks are the cool wear today. 🤦‍♂️
Tracy Sherman-Krs I say let the kids have a pair of light up shoes regardless if we as parents don’t like them. Their only kids once & we want them to be making choices for themselves on certain things. What’s shoes gonna hurt if affordable… just my opinion!
Barbara RiffeMy daughter told me fanny pack was out of fashion, so I threw mine away and now there back in style.
James Leitelt I have 2 sons. So I buy the oldest all the Jerseys and pass them down to the youngest. Thank god they both love the same team.
Daniel OrtizHonestly don’t remember trying to have fashion, but I did always get airwalk shoes and a bunch of metal shirts or DC skating shirts.
