This page is about the slang term emo
a style of music and fashion that developed among American teens in the early 21st century
- Emo kids love to wear tight black jeans, tight sweatshirts or T-shirts, and scarves, and they dye their hair black and grow long bangs to cover most of the face.
- My brother has decided he's an emo kid, so he's taken to moping around in silence while looking like a sulky teenage vampire.
Origin: short for "emotional"
