We’re happy with the racially correct and gender-sensitive emojis that Apple just released. Really, we are. But we’re still yearning for the day when emojis are enough to convey what fashion folk truly feel. Here, a list of fasyon emojis that we think deserve their own keys. Tim Cook, we're waiting. *insert The Anna emoji*
Use it when you feel like barking orders. Or, confusing people about how you truly feel.
Use it when you feel like being a diva. Or, a multi-tasking diva. Best used with the Choupette emoji.
Use it when you feel like doing nothing—and being adored for it.
Use it when you’re feeling old school, brand conscious, or aspirational.
Use it when you’re feeling intellectual, progressive, and Belgian.
Use it when you’re feeling a bit mainstream.
Use it when you’re up for a palate cleanse.
These emojis don’t work with the heritage ones:
Use it when you’re feeling cosmetically correct. Or sending specs to your suki MUA.
Use it when you’re feeling post-Alexa Chung, British cool.
Use it when you’re feeling sporty. Or street. Or both.
Use it when you’ve had too much #foodporn. Or while diet-cramming for #LABORACAY.
Dubai designer-clad Bride
Use it when you’re feeling maximalist or channeling a royal wedding fantasy.
These don’t go well with the normcore emojis.
Use it when you’re anti-It bag. Or bringing baon to work.
Use it when you’re feeling industrious. Or if the work at hand requires you to be on your knees (or on all fours for a #flatlay).
Use it when you want to assert your foot fetish.
This emoji goes well with…
Use it when you’re feeling beautiful, stylish and popular. Or if you're coming out with a book with your best friend. Or running your own cool, little business.
Choose from: side-boob or abs.
