Trend-setters wearing cheap looking clothes is indeed an interesting form of conspicuous consumption long known in sociology: Members of upper classes adopt the styles of lower classes to differentiate themselves from middle classes, who wouldn’t be caught dead in lower-class styles because they’re the ones in danger of being mistaken for them.The middle classes then start to copy the trend-setters since the media and the merchandisers learn to market each new wave more...
