20 Popular Trends That Prove We Were Totally Unfair To Emo Culture

-

You all remember them: From the 2000s to 2010s, Emos were a vastly ridiculed community, although they were one of the most popular subcultures of the day. Members of the community probably felt marginalized and alienated, and we kept making fun of their looks, their music, and in short, their outlook on life. Today’s popular fashion trends, however, prove that they were totally on to something! Here are 20 trends that emos started but we’ve only just recently realized and adopted!

Fishnet stockings.

We used to think that fishnet stockings were trashy and cheap. Today, even the classiest of us don't hesitate to put them on!

Everyone thought that corsets were too extravagant for a casual style. Now people wear them even on t-shirts!

Unicorn and mermaid hair.

Since the 80s, colorful hair was trendy among several subcultures, including hippies and emos. But it has never been this popular amongst the general population. Looks like we’ve finally understood how good it feels to go crazy with the hair!

Groupie t-shirts.

Emos used to wear mostly black t-shirts with their favorite group’s name on it. Now you don’t even have to have a favorite band to wear groupie t-shirts.

Taking selfies outside.

Teenagers wouldn’t remember this, but back then it was weird to take your own photo on the street. People used to look down on whoever did this, including emos. Now it's not normal not doing it every once in a while.

Mirror selfies.

Taking mirror selfies was just LAME. Now you see world famous models’ mirror selfies all over Instagram. Emos were way ahead of their time, once again.

Making weird faces in photos.

Emos used to do this all the time, and we just looked down on them for being pathetic losers. We’re all losers now, I suppose…

Chokers

Now let’s confess, we at least once made fun of an emo for looking like a dog when wearing a choker. I bet you’re wearing one right now.

When everyone was combining simple T-shirts with boring jeans, emos used to wear these skirts. Remember?

People with piercings were considered to be too edgy back in the day. Not anymore, obviously...

Converse and Vans have become extremely popular in the last decade.

Skinny jeans.

We couldn’t even imagine a masculine guy wearing these jeans. It’s amazing to see such meaningless gender stereotypes vanishing.

Pocket chains.

Pocket chains were also very popular, but not among “classy” youngsters. Only those who saw themselves as “different” used to wear them.
