How To Dress Emo
With a few specific wardrobe pieces, you can learn how to dress emo and easily blend in at any concert where the band's names are sentences. Dressing emo has a few key elements you'll want to have on hand.
- Converse Shoes: These are a real must for dressing emo. Preferably high tops, any color as long as they aren't shiny. Darker shades are always good.
- Tight Band T-Shirts: The more obscure the music and the more poetic the name, the better. Especially if the shirt is either black or pink. If it's not tight, it's not emo.
- Your Girlfriend's Pants: Yes, the right men look amazingly good in a girl's pants. Again, these have to be tight. If they're looking lived in, or grey wash, or both, that's good too.
- Wrist Wear: Bracelets, a sweat band, fingerless gloves, pick one or mix and match. Wearing a wrist watch is not dressing emo.
- Hoodie: This one doesn't have to be tight, but if it is formfitting, awesome. No brand names showing, that looks corporate rather than emo. It should be either a solid color, a solid print, or music-related. Emo is a music genre, after all.
- Studded Belt: Another must for this style of dress Feel free to get any color or width, and feel free to add a buckle with brass knuckles or a nautical star. Hell, get anything with brass knuckles or nautical stars.
- Optional Additions: If you don't flat iron or dye your hair, you should for an authentic emo look. A chunk of blonde and stick straight hair falling into your face are key. Black eyeliner also makes a great addition when you want to dress emo, as does a houndstooth scarf.
