Long Emo Hairstyles
For the uninitiated, Emo is a kind of music, a sub-culture which has its own followers spotting unique fashion including hairstyles. It is a fashion trend that is especially popular with the younger generation of today.
Long Emo hairstyles can be done in many different ways with different colors. It is a reflection of the wearer’s Emo personality and lifestyle and is seen as one of the main characteristics of Emo. Let’s take a look.
As a general rule of thumb Emo hairstyles are mainly black in color. There have been instances where bleached blond or dark brown have been used but black is the MAIN color. Long hairstyles for Emo girls are usually long (below shoulder) and moody while for Emo boys, long hairstyles mean those that are up to the chin area only.
One of the main characteristics of long emo hairstyles is that they contain a lot of side fringes/bangs that cover one side of the eye. For starters, there is the messy black Emo long hairstyle. As the name suggests, it is worn in a messy state. Then of course there is the long blond, long brown and so on.
An easy way to perk up long emo hairstyles is to add strands of bright colors such as blue or pink to the black or dark hair. These colors often require some bleaching to enable the color to blend in.
Remember Emo is a whole fashion trend and subculture with long emo hairstyles playing an integral part in it. Spice up your Emo personality with unique long emo hairstyles with accessories and colors in the right place.

Choosing emo jeans for girls can be a bit difficult. But the question that you might be asking yourself is: how do you know what jeans you should choose?
The first thing that you need to know is to make sure to pick jeans that you will personally find to be the most comfortable. Also keep in mind that boy and girls jeans are made differently. You’ll look a bit odd wearing a pair of boys jeans, mainly because they are built differently. If you really prefer the way that they fit, however, they are a better alternative.
First of all, the most popular type of emo girls jeans are skinny jeans. They come in a variety of styles and shapes and shades and almost anyone can wear skinny jeans. Keep in mind that you may not find them comfortable and in the case that you don’t, try the next size up. Just because having really tight jeans is popular doesn’t mean that you absolutely have to wear really tight jeans.
Checkered patterns and animal prints are really popular and they are a good place to start as far as emo girls jeans go. Make sure to choose a print that you know that you’ll wear. Don’t worry about matching—most emo girls don’t and it’s alright: it adds to the outfit.
If you really don’t like emo skinny jeans, then you may want to consider looking into Tripp pants which are a more comfortable alternative and also look super duper cool.

Choosing emo jeans for boys can be a bit difficult. After all, you never know what to choose and you may not be entirely sure what qualifies as emo. However, choosing emo jeans isn’t nearly as hard as you might think and as a matter of fact, you could probably do it in the blink of an eye.
First of all, tight jeans are more popular for emo guys. You can generally buy skinny jeans at any store now—but the main thing to remember is to buy boy skinny jeans. While you probably could get away with buying girl skinny jeans, you need to remember that girls and boys are made differently and so are their jeans.
Secondly, you can also choose the pattern of your jeans. This means that if you like checkers, then you could choose a pair of checkered jeans. The same goes for animal prints, although they are normally found in the girls section of the clothes stores.
Skinny jeans are popular, but so are Tripp jeans, which are usually a bit more expensive and you can find them in pretty much any size. They’re really comfortable and you may find them to be a better alternative to skinny jeans.
Keep in mind that if you can’t find skinny jeans or don’t find them very comfortable, then you may find that regular jeans that are just a little tighter than you might normally wear are a comfortable alternative.

Emo style for girls isn’t quite the same as for boys, but it does have a lot of the same elements. The main thing to remember is to try and keep it as unique to you as you possibly can.
First of all, plaid is popular, as are checker board patterns and animal patterns. Animal patterns are more popular as far as purses go. Most emo girls normally carry around messenger bag style purses as opposed to the more traditional purses that you may find.
Next, you also will want to look into tighter clothing. Most emo girls and even guys wear tighter clothes than most people. Choose shirts that are fitted or a little bit smaller than what you usually wear.
Cartoon characters and vintage shirts are both popular for emo girls. Anime is especially popular as is Pokemon and older cartoons.
Dinosaurs in their cartoon form are also popular among emo girls. Try and choose cartoon characters that you find to be cool or cartoon characters from cartoons that you really like to watch. It’ll make things easier for you.
Carrying around a small book bag in the shape of a stuffed animal is also very popular, especially Domo or Stitch from Lilo and Stitch. You can find loads of stuffed animals that come in book bag format.
Last, choose shoes that are low top or boots. Converse are extremely popular as are a few other brands, but the main thing to remember is to find shoes that you like and are comfortable.

Emo fashion is for emo girls who do not conform to the trendy girl fashion usually set by celebrities and famous fashion icons. Emo girls listen to their own emo type of music, dance to their own tune and dress in a most unconventional manner that in a way also calls attention. Their own brand of fashion is an expression of their own personal taste and emotional state and they don’t care what other people think of it. But in a way, there is still some commonality in the way emo girls dress, thus the emo fashion. Here are some examples of garments that constitute emo fashion:
Emo girls are partial to the layered look in clothing. They could be seen with a long sleeved undershirt topped by another shirt with short sleeves. Colors run from white to grey to black and either in solid color or a band t-shirt, meaning a t-shirt with an emo band’s image embossed on the shirt. The more clothes there are the more emo the look.
Hoodies are an essential item in an emo girl’s wardrobe and we’re not talking one hoodie here, in fact it has to be a collection of hoodies. Band hoodies, hoodies with skull, stars and other bizarre designs, emo-accepted clothing brand hoodies, even plain hoodies are tolerable, as long as it won’t make them look like a sorority girl. For summer, there are short sleeved hoodies.
Jeans and skirts
Tight skinny jeans are another emo fashion staple and so are short skirts.
Scarves are an emo girl’s very own fashion statement. Long, thin, simple crocheted or knitted scarves are worn by emo girls all seasons of the year. Scarves in solid colors, stripes or plaid are up to standard.
Shoes and socks
Emo girl fashion decrees that shoes are flat and simple although buckle shoes are acceptable. Knee socks with patterns, fishnet sworn with skirts, thigh highs and striped thighrts or stocking are all emo fashion standards.

These two have been considered to be the same peas of a pod for many years, but scene and emo are very, very different. Emo is more about emotions, especially those of the darker kind. It started as a musical movement in the eighties and has transformed into a cultural phenomenon. However, scene is all about all kinds of music, and happiness, and rainbows. They’re as different as male and female! Cats and dogs! Butterflies and spiders!
First of all, emo kids usually wear darker clothing. They lean more towards patterns as opposed to cartoon characters. Stripes are popular, plaid (in some cases). But scene kids wear brighter clothes and pretty much dress the same as anyone else, just with more accessories.
The makeup really isn’t much different. Scene does have a bit of elegance that emo doesn’t, but there are a few emos who choose something more eloquent. They both like to wear neon, bright colors and dark eyeliner or dark eyeshadow. However, emo boys are more likely to wear makeup (at least eyeliner) than a scene boy.
Lastly is the hair. While scene gals and guys have their poofs, emos have their spiked, jagged cuts. While scene kids prefer longer, more flowing hair, emo kids prefer something harsh and spiky. However, it is a matter of preference. Some girls who are emo prefer to have longer, less jagged hair. Then again, some scene girls like their hair to be shorter.

Teenagers have a lingo all their own, even their own fashion vocabulary. Here are some of the more common “”terms”" used by the young to describe their favorite apparel:
Beater or wife-beater - A beater or wife beater is a lightweight ridged tank top initially worn by men as an interior clothing or undershirt.

Cami – A cami is a camisole that women used to wear as an under clothing. A cami’s popularity as an outer garment for women came with the trend of wearing undergarments as an outerwear just like the beater. A cami has narrow straps, made of fine or sheer fabrics and is great worn on its own as tops for summer or for layering in the cooler seasons.
Kitten heels – a kitten heel is a 1 and a half teo inches of very feminine heel with a cute curve to it popularized by Audrey Hepburn and is a style
that is very much alive to this day. It is a great option between high heels and flats.

“Emo” is a shorthand term that gained popularity first as a music genre. Fans of that genre cultivated a very specific look; that look soon became known as emo as well. Emo fashion has its origins in earlier musically-influenced fashion trends, like goth, metal, and punk, but the mish-mash of these assorted influences helped create something entirely its own.
Emo kids are known for being sensitive (emo is short for “emotional,” after all) and feeling out of place; that sensitivity is a huge influence on the fashion of the genre. To that end, emo reached back into the styles of previous generations’ disaffected youth and pulled bits and pieces from the past (black hair, piercings, heavy eyeliner) together with fitted clothes (emo boys are often skinny, and are known for wearing girl’s jeans to achieve a certain look). Long sleeves are must.
Over the years since emo first became a trend, emo fashion has blended in with what is known as “hipster” fashion. Hipster fashion is similarly tightly fitting, but tends towards brighter colors and patterns. Both fashion trends rely on vintage and retro items to achieve a certain ironic aesthetic. Flannel shirts, oversized glasses, and trucker caps have all been a part of hipster fashion at one time or another, and many emo fashionistas have adopted these items as well.
Emo hair trends have changed as well; instead of being primarily dyed black, emo hair now comes in a variety of colors. Platinum blonde is a particularly popular option.
