Do people dress according to their politics?
With only 20% of millennials identifying with the GOP – being a young Republican has never been quite so unfashionable.
But following fashion has never really trended with those leaning right.
Pearls – blazers and super-straight hair for the young ladies; sweater vests – chinos and helmet hair for the gentlemen.
You could call it GOPcore: a fashion-backward uniform of uniformity.
But are these just stereotypes or do young people really dress differently based on their political affiliation?
We asked YouGov – a global research company, to look into whether the statistics support the stereotypes.
And we found that they do.
While both young Democrats (YDs) and young Republicans (YRs) channel their politics into their wardrobes to some extent – Republican values make a far more obvious sartorial statement.
