So what do guys (Emo guys we're talking about, right?) wear these days? Simple answer - they love Hoodies, the more the merrier.
Apparently Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy is the proud owner of over 300 Hoodies. The most popular designs are Black and White Striped or Black and Red Striped Hoodies.

How To Make The Most of Your Animal Print Skinnies?
You love Zebra and Leopard printed Skinny Jeans, right? Yes, well, so do we. They look great, and they make a great impact. I mean, you can't just not notice this kind of jeans! They look gorgeous, and that's true. But how to wear them to make the most of this amazing design?
The best way is to wear them with plain top, and plain shoes. Ideally black or grey. You could get away with red or purple as well, but only with White Zebra jeans, it would look actually very Scene Queen!
Don't experiment too much with Red Leopard Jeans, we beg! Wear them with plain black or white tee or hoodie, and plain shoes. If you go somewhere special (like a gig, or a show) you can wear them with black corset, and red accessories, it would look uber-cool, just don't over-do it, as you may be seen as goth.
Remember, do compliment these jeans, try to show them off. Avoid printed vans or other shoes, whey will just spoil the effect, go for simple things, like black flats, or vans, or some black boots.
Now accessories: the best way to compliment these skinny jeans is to wear matching accessories, like animal scarf, or bandana on your head, or some animal print bangles. Try to match the hair accessories with these jeans, they will go very well.
Have fun, and if you're not sure of some combination, ask your mates, what do they think, if this or that look works. Good luck :)
Audrey Kitching, Jac Vanek, Kikki Kannibal, they all look absolutely fantastic, no doubt about it. Now, with status of celebrity, these beautiful Scene Queens are ones to look up to. But where did they all start? We know it could have been Buzznet, MySpace or Bebo pages, socialising, adding celebrity friends and posting fantastic photos. Yes, they all take loads of photos of themselves. Don't they look proffessional? Yes, but this can be done at home too! Here we will give you few helpfull tips how to take great photos of yourself.
First of all, choose funky looking clothes, with strong colours and / or bold designs. The best design on offer at the moment is also one of Scene Queen's favourites - Pink Animal Print - Pink Leopard Hoodie or Pink Zebra Jacket. These Jackets are very flattering, look great on pictures and you can't get more Scene than that :)
Next, make-up, always put heavier make-up for photoshoots than you do everyday, as photos tend to blur the objects, and you want to bring out your eyes and flawless complexion, right? On great tips, how to do Scene Emo Make-Up, please see our guide - How To Do Emo Make-Up.
Now, the most important task, choose where to take your photos! The best light would be outdoors on a sunny day, ideally in the park, or local playground. If you prefer to take photos at home, choose a piece of white wall as a background. And try to avoid sockets and other wiring to get into your frame :) Now strike a pose and find the one that suits you best. Use digital camera, to know instantly how the photo looks like, and what to improve in your pose, how to put your head, arm etc. Look at Audrey and Jac's photos, how do they pose, smile, and remember, you'll get better with time :)
If you’ve been to a gig before, you know it can be wild place and quite impossible to control. So how to prepare for a concert, what to wear to survive? Keyword is: ‘comfortable’. Put comfortable shoes, not your best pair, but one that could be troddenby the crowd, you’ll be surprised by the state of your shoes after the concert! Well you’ll still need them for your way back, so leave your pumps at home and put some old sneakers instead. Fashion can wait one more day :)
Now, the jeans, ideally black or grey, as you might sit on the ground, be spilled with a beer and other disasters, and you don’t want to show the world story of the night, do ya? Ok, so that’s sorted, but what about the top? Well, that’s a tricky number. Have at least two tops with you, one underneath, sleeveless for dancing when it’s really hot and crowdie, and a Hoodie to wear on your way back. But don’t take your favourite Hoodie with you, you’ll need some old number, one which can be left on the ground, or under the bench, ideally dark coloured, or with some strong pattern.
Ok, so the wardrobe’s sorted. What about other things to have? You might need some secure place to put money in, so ideally in your pockets, have some room for tissues, bus pass, mobile, lipstick or eye-liner, you never know if you’ll need some make-up corrections! And there’s no point of taking backpack with you, it can be easily robbed in these kind of places, even if you leave it in cloakroom.
After all, you go there to have fun with your mates, and not to worry about the state of your clothes, or your bag!
We all love dressing up, trying new things, creating new outfits. But how to choose something truly unique, something you can create and wear it in your own style?
First you need to know what kind of tops / jeans / shoes suits you best. There's no point in following strict trends, if the style doesn't suit you and you can be seen as a 'poser'. You must have at least one favourite item - eg. jeans, hoodie or a scarf. Ask your mates if this item suits you, you want to compliment your features - like great hair, beutiful skin or flat tummy. You want to dress like your mates, but find your own style and still look good, right?
Try to wear items that you know will look best on you, eg. if you have shorter legs, wear longer jeans and short tops; if your upper body is bit bigger then the bottom, try different colour combinations - darker top and brighter jeans. Always ask your friends what do they think of your current outfit etc.
Now, when you know what kind of items you're after, it's time to express your personality with a colour! Wear clothes that make you feel natural wearing them - don't make the clothes wear you!
You know everything about those gorgeous Scene Queens - Audrey Kitching, Jac Vanek, Ezi Xtacy, Katie Babyfayce, Kiki Kannibal etc, got your own MySpace page and even new Scene Pseudo, but now you need to dress the part! We'll show here how to be true to your Scene Queen roots and keep it in everyday look manner!
