Just call it the rawring 20's! Emo fashion may have been the most popular in the mid to late 2000s but true scene romantics are still kicking around.
Emo has origins as far back as the '80s, emerging from emocore or emotive hardcore music as an offshoot of punk. It's 100% not the same as goth, but there is an overlap and we love a good spectrum of looks here at Tragic Beautiful. Based in Australia, we offer free standard shipping to Aussie and NZ customers and you can buy now and pay later with Afterpay, Zip, Humm, Laybuy, Klarna and more!
Whether you're a mallgoth looking for casual skater looks, a scene kid who loves their random rainbows and pastels or an emo kid looking for stripes, fishnets and plug hoops we've got it all!
It's much easier than you think! All of our fave brands regularly come out with new collections that are emo and scene friendly so here are some tips on where to look:
Brands like Killstar and Banned Apparel often come out with badass skinny jeans with a punk edge while you can get tartan and bondage pants from Tripp NYC. Demonia has an awesome range of skater and high top sneakers if you want a twist on classic Converses as well as hella punk combat boots. Blackcraft Cult and Black Friday are awesome for edgy tees with unique designs to incorporate into that mall goth wardrobe.
For accessories, we've always stocked up with fishnets arm warmers, gloves and tights from Music Legs. Cold Black Heart has all the punk chokers in pink, white and black you could ever need as well as studded wrist cuffs! We also do super cute hair clips with skull, cat and bat designs.
If you're looking to get some colourful scene hair lewks, you can't go wrong with colourful dye brands Manic Panic, Directions and Lunar Tides whose formulas condition your hair (which you'll need with all that teasing!) while staying completely cruelty-free and vegan.
