What fashion (and lifestyle) do you prefer, emo or scene?

Emo is the original and is based on the emo genre of music. Emos often, but not necessarily, wear dark colors. It was established in the 1980s but didn't become popular until the 21st century. Most of them don't themselves, that's just a stereotype.

Scene is a recent fad that is a spin-off of emo. It involves preps who wear extremely colorful clothing and they like rainbows.

I think I like the scene thing. Though its name seems pretentious. Seems like the type I'd like to run into at a rave or something.

Why dont they call it "sparkly rainboe jive"!

Because the term jive is considered racist by some African Americans? j/k

Any female debating between the Emo and Scene looks, is unquestionably way too young for me, so I'll vote "present". :mrgreen:

The one on the bottom looks like a style for an 8-year-old girl, while the ones on top look a bit too unisex from the neck up to suit me. If they didn't have boobs, I might think they were dudes in makeup.

I don't really prefer either, though I will say that the second one looks like a typical raver to me (from the days when I went to them in Toronto). But that's just my experience with seeing that look.

If people don't call themselves emo then I don't see what the point is in labeling them as such. People should be who they want to be and dress how they want to dress without it having to be so categorical.

Heres how I see it.

Preppy Girls

Raver

The top girls look like preppy kids to me. The bottom chick, just looks like a raver without the glowsticks or pacifier.

If I were still a teen, I would go with a nice rivet-head or steam-punk chick.

Steam punk....ugh!

I look at those pictures and think "child". Finding one attractive would make me a molester.

Do you mean which group would I prefer my 10 year old hang out with when he turns 13?

EMO is the original?

Hardly - Goth is the original for EMO. Goth actually came from the heavier scenes of punk and metal - dating decades back. Which, in turn, was inspired by a mix of lighter forms of metal, stage, and Victorian, Elizabethan and Baroque clothing fashions.

Well, not the "heavier" really. It grew out of the British fashion scene associated with punk. The godmother of goth, Siouxsie, was a Sex Pistols hanger on.

Then the gofather must be Malcolm Mclaren, since he was more responsible for the fashion end of punk than anybody.
