As a female in the 21st century, this was one of the most interesting weeks for me in terms of learning about why subcultural style is not as apparent in todays culture. As a person who has always enjoyed dressing in the styles of a multitude of different subcultural styles, goth, mod, rockabilly and punk to name a few, it was interesting to learn that there is a form of sociology dedicated to this. Sweetman’s 2004 analogy of the difference between travelers and tourists really did open my eyes as I have often contemplated myself the ways in which some people tend to flit on the wings of fashion whereas others seem to be solely dedicated to one subculture or period in fashion.
