First I’d like to state, for all those who lack real intelligence and decided to make scene (and urban dictionary at that) a deprecating hell-hole, that none of those belittling words about this trend is true. Scene is a fashion trend, in the era of 2000, that is, for the most part, inspired by a retro 1980s indie look. What does this consist of? Primarily this means most scene kids (estimating 98%) are defined by: skinny jeans, band t-shirts, hoodies, miniskirts, leggings, bullet belts, name brand clothes/handbags, skateboarding apparel (fur-hood parkas, skate brand t-shirts etc), wristbands of various designs (usually those plastic bracelets), Converse, and Vans (mainly slip-ons).
Along with the stuff I mentioned above scene kids are also, roughly by 25%, a branch from another trend (that you all know of) known as Emo. This means, along with the defined above, scene kids are also defined by: skinny jeans (mainly black and also tighter), band t-shirts (tight as well), studded belts, snakebite piercings, and black horn-rimmed glasses. Now please don’t get the two trends confused. What males them different, for the most part, is the fact emo kids are known to be depressed/sad (for some strange reason) while scene kids are the opposite.
From reading above you’re 50% on your way to knowing what being scene really is. Scene kids, like emo kids, are fixed around the color black though scene kids are also fixed around bright colors too (as in neon). Scene kids have fads, mean things that come and go, that include: having a profile on multiple social networks (myspace, bebo, etc), being a vegetarian, text talk (l33t style) and being straight-edge. While 98% scene kids do this, this is NOT required to be scene.
What really makes you scene is your hairstyle and your music. Now I’m not telling you to just go and change what you listen to for scene reasons (because what you like is what you like), though I do prefer listening to bands that are also scene. As a scene kid it is a must that you go to shows (as in concerts), even if the band isn’t mainstream or you don’t know the band (meaning local and unheard of). Lastly KNOW YOUR MUSIC; it’s a must. Scene hairstyles are mostly straightened (and dyed black) and choppy (as in cut with razor comb) and has bright dye in certain parts (some temp, some perm).
Now to finally clear it EVERYTHING! Saying your scene doesn’t make you a poser. If someone ask, you say “Yeah I’m Scene”. This is to prevent people stereotyping you calling you a liar and hypocrite (for calling people posers of scene when your scene too). Changing overnight doesn’t make you a poser; clothes are clothes and a trend is a trend. To finalize this, being scene is like being a preppy kid or a goth kid. It all revolves around fashion (clothes and music). I want to state just because you follow a trend doesn’t mean you change your personality. Be yourself, there is only one of you.
no example needed, everyone is different. Scene Kid is a Scene Kid, regardless of there race or religion. That's a fact. D:
