This year, the volume has moved up the arm – it’s less floaty and romantic, more muscular
The most fashionable emoji right now isn’t the dancing lady, or the face with the hearts for eyes. And it’s not the red balloon or the all-white heart (although fashion people do love the red balloon and the white heart). No, the most chic symbol on the keyboard is the muscly arm emoji with the mega-biceps that suggests itself when you type the word “strong”.
That emoji is the most on-trend silhouette of the season, a cut-out-and-keep template for your 2020 wardrobe. But don’t panic, because you will not be required to weightlift, nor exist on protein milkshakes. We’re talking Popeye sleeves, not Popeye arms. That’s the whole point of fashion, surely: you get your clothes to do the aesthetic heavy lifting for you.
