I always find it interesting when emo, punk, whathaveyougenre makes it into the spotlight. This is from an article on BBC News, Rock cult or nice kids that do their homework?
1: “Emo hair is characterised by long fringes that sweep over one eye,” says Liz Morris. “It takes some inspiration from Japanese ‘manga’, with punk elements. It’s usually black, with streaks of vibrant colour, and poker straight. The top is often cut short, with pink clips for girls.”
2: “Black skinny jeans and studded belts are a must, topped with a skin-tight T-shirt or shirt to emphasise a skinny frame. Tailoring inspired by the Victorian Gothic era is popular for its connotations of romance and death.”
3: Trainers are the staple footwear of both genders, notably Converse All Star. “These offer a flash of colour in an otherwise plain ensemble, so many go for bright or pattered versions. Pink, red and purple are popular.”
