Social changes in the early 20th century increasingly encouraged young people to develop tastes that were different from those of their parents, and to spend money on indulging their interests. Usually aligning themselves with new movements in popular music, style tribes emerged with idiosyncratic attitudes and modes of dress. This survey of youth culture identifies over 30 styles from the flappers of the 1920s and the swing kids of the 1930s, to beatniks, hippies, goths and hipsters.

Review:

Style is a language, a philosophy, an identity. It is reaction, provocation, rebellion, expression. It is counter culture. It is sub culture. It is socio political, potent, bold and powerful.
Style Tribes 
examines how we express our individuality and our politics by the choices we make in presenting ourselves to the world. It is an exploration into the role that style has played within our culture and a probe into the intent, the meanings and the weight behind something we often think of as so frivolous.

--Shirley Manson, Garbage
