Culture Reference Couture

Implications - The Internet has enabled youth from all over the globe to bond over common interests, making it easier (and of higher priority) for adolescents to identify and communicate them to the world. This has created a desire for pop culture-referencing apparel that literally allows tweens to wear their interests on their sleeve. This speaks to a larger need for belonging in a particular behavioral tribe.
