It's more like "anti-fashion" than actual fashion, because if you're truly Emo then you'll know it's not cool to care about appearances. Nevertheless, Emo has a distinctive style all of its own, and this guide will show you how to get it…


Where to buy Emo


When it comes to Emo fashion, where you buy it is just as important as what it looks like – maybe more so, in fact. No true Emo wants to help support some faceless corporation, so look for your clothes in thrift stores and at flea markets, or even on eBay (just type "Emo" into the search box). They cost you less and you can be sure of finding something truly different that no one else will be wearing. Just as importantly, your money will be going to help a worthy cause. Of course, if you really can’t find what you're looking for, Hot Topic does a good line in Emo, too…


What to buy


There are several Emo basics which you really can't afford to be without. Chief of these is the vintage t-shirt, preferably one with some kind of incomprehensible logo on the front. Your t-shirt should be tight fitting and as old as possible – if it has that "newly purchased" look about it, then it's just not Emo, I'm afraid.


Next, you'll need some Emo shoes. Top choice here is for Converse All-Stars, but bear in mind that they'll need to be properly worn-in and roughed-up before they can be called truly "Emo".


Emo accessories


Accessories are important to the Emo look, specifically glasses and hats. For hats, look no further than the trucker cap, ideally one with some kind of slogan on the front. Glasses should be thick-rimmed and ugly, in a throwback to the 50s. Wear them with thick bangs and black, dyed hair, and congratulations – you're officially Emo!

Oh, and one more thing, Emo can be a way of life, but it is also a style. Someone could be really nice and friendly but look emo becasue they dress the part.

Life is a movie...

UNRAVEL THE FILM!!!!

Okay u know what ppl here:

1. emos care about how they look

2. There ARE SO a few details and key trends that make them look 'emo'

3. not all emos CUT

4. they're referring to 'emo' as a STYLE, not a person so dont get ur panties in a bunch ok??

I agree that stereotypes are wrong but that doesn't mean that styles have to go away. Think about this: If someone dressed 'emo', does that automatically make them 'emo'? No.
