Emo Fashion Tips

Tips for Girls

  1. Emo fashion is all about expressing individuality and the deep emotions related to hardcore, alternative rock music that define this style era. So creating your own emo look can be challenging. The totality of the look requires a blend of elements from preexisting fashion genres, such as punk, geek and goth. Melding matte, black hair with dark makeup and clothes is a good way to imitate an emo look. But for girls who want to achieve a more authentic emo style, there are a few style basics to consider.
  2. Hair

  3. The first thing that most people notice when evaluating an emo look is your hair. Emo hair should be cut short and choppy in the back with long layers in the front, almost resembling a reverse mullet. Emo hair should be dyed or streaked black, but incorporating bright colors is also acceptable. Adding spikes to your hair or pulling your bangs across your forehead to drape over one eye are other ways to accentuate the emo look.
  4. Makeup

  5. Emo kids tend to highlight their eyes to create the illusion of a bigger or rounder shape. Using dark eyeliner and dark eyeshadow to brighten the whites of your eyes is a good way to achieve this look. Painting your fingernails with dark nail polish accents and emphasizes the dark nature of emo styles. Keep in mind that emo skin tone should be as pale as possible without the assistance of makeup. If you start applying white foundation to your skin to create a paler complexion, your look may become more goth than emo.
  6. Clothes

  7. Emo is sort of the youngest child of outcast fashion with hand-me-downs from punk, geek and goth styles. Girls can accessorize with geek-inspired square, black eyeglasses. Hoodies worn with patches and pins pay homage to the punk style era. You can punch up the emo effect with a hoodie that adorns an image of your favorite indie band. Completing the look with boots add a common style element found in both the goth and punk culture. Think strapped or combat boots for a dramatic effect. High-top sneakers can also be worn for a more toned-down, casual look.
