Emo clothes

Emo is just a word. It loosely describes a group of people that are inspired by music, have an alternative dress sense but cannot be called Goths or Punks. Emo is a new sub-culture of fashion & being that draws influence from predecessors' best bits whilst retaining its individuality. Usually it's only parents that mistake an 'Emu' for a Goth.

Emos are similar to punks in that they are not apologetic about dressing differently, although you're probably less likely to get headbutted for offending one. One aspect of Emo culture Sohos loves is the friendships between them and the way they appreciate one other. Whilst some peer groups condemn someone for daring to change or look different, Emo friends appreciate each other's efforts to look wicked. Emo can be casual but bright; with contrasting colours and prints like a Nu-Punk Contrast, or can be darker, smarter and more sophisticated but with an elaborate edge.

The people involved in it didn't wake up one morning and think 'I want to be an Emo'. Emo isn't any particular fashion trend; it can be everything and nothing - its an attitude. Sohos has tried to capture the Emo feeling in this page. Sohos respects Emos for having the confidence to be unique and take pride in looking remarkable whilst others are content to fade into the background as they are afraid to take the risks to stand out in the way that Emos do.

Taking risks isn't without its risks though, obviously, Emos are marked as targets of abuse for being different. Some people have to stereo-type things to understand them, others want to bring it down to its base level and others want to destroy what is different. That's human nature.

Our signature thumby tops are great emo wear, with the discreet thumbhole detail allowing you to wear the sleeves low on the hands. Team with a skinny jacket with coloured piping, or browse for emo hoodies. Check out our range of wide and narrow jeans and choose a bright colour for stand-out emo style or a darker shade for a more introspective feel.


Just because the Weather is Grey and Dull doesn't mean that you have to be! Pick and choose something to brighten your mood and add colour and fun where ever you go.

Sohos Fall 08 Emo Collection of Hoodies is about visually arresting colours, brain engaging images and aesthetically appealing patterns. It includes wicked muted & subtle hoods as individual preference of what people feel like wearing can change with mood or occasion
