The Stereotypes of What you Wear

The Stereotypes of What you Wear

In the nicest way ever, yes we are stereotyping how people dress at Pasco High. First, what does it mean to stereotype. Stereotype is defined as “an often unfair and untrue belief that many people have about all people or things with a particular characteristic.”  

Are you considered basic? 

Let us get into what most people find “basic.” Research says that basic styles are the following: Parisian, Athleisure, Classic, Streetwear, Business Casual, Retro, Minimalist, and Vintage.  

 What do your shoes say about you? If you wear white air forces congrats, you have the same shoes as everyone in the school. Furthermore, if you wear Vans and Converse, you are now the most basic person out there. I would know I wear them. That was very stereotypical because it is not true. A persons shoes do not make them basic. How would you dress your shoes? Do you base your outfit on the clothes or the shoes?  

Speaking of how you dress, let us talk about the people who dress in all black. You had no idea what to wear today did you not?  But style is not about playing it safe, it is also about experimenting and daring to remain different.  

Stereotypes are a common form of prejudice. They are often used to categorize people into groups, without considering their individual characteristics. For example, women who wear revealing clothes and men who wear t-shirts with slogans on them are often seen as being “slutty” or “tough”, respectively. These stereotypes can be harmful because they lead to discrimination against those who do not fit the stereotype.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of people wearing unconventional outfits and clothing styles that go against traditional fashion trends. This has led many people to question whether these individuals are trying to rebel against society or if they have been brainwashed by society into believing that their way of dressing is normal and acceptable for young adults.
