The Sleepover Club: Blokecore, The Legacy Of Ladettes, And Why We Should Be Worried About The Co-option Of Working Class Culture
April 10, 2023 · 31 min

All of the girlies, from Bella Hadid to Kim Kardashian herself, are dressing like they love the football. Blokecore is the latest microtrend to sweep the internet - and suddenly, going to the pub with a footy scarf round your head (the style itself now christened the 'litty scarf') is a personality type. This week, Ione are examining the history of how we treat working class aesthetics - from the demonisation of ladette culture, and the knowing irony that so often infiltrates blokecore, to whether this new iteration of popularisation signals the return of a dreaded, populist type of neoliberalism that demonises the working classes at every opportunity.
