What Is My Aesthetic?

What is my aesthetic?

The phrase is as diverse as the word “aesthetics” itself. What do we mean when speaking of a person’s aesthetics?

Formally, it means “the branch of philosophy which deals with questions of beauty and artistic taste.” In the modern setting, we use the phrase to describe someone’s taste, preferences, and outlook on life.

You may have heard about the modern online esthetic types such as a soft girl/boy, egirl/eboy, VSCO girls, and so on. Actually, we have a VSCO girl quiz here on this website that determines which one of those you are! Have you checked it yet? You might be surprised by the results!

VSCO/Soft/Egirl

aesthetics

When speaking in these terms, we can classify three main types of people on Instagram and TikTok as these are two of the most popular social media networks. It doesn’t mean that there are no other types, but these are the main three thrown into one cluster.

VSCO girl

This is where the trend starts. The high popularity of the photo editing app VSCO was the determining factor of such a name. Today, such a person possesses a number of common characteristics based on the trends of the previous several years. Among the VSCO girl must-haves are Birkenstocks, a Kanken backpack, scrunchies, a shell necklace or bracelet, a water flask (preferable with the sticker “save the turtles”), an Instax camera, and so on. The list can go on for hours!

Soft Girl

You’ll know the soft girl by the peachy and creamy tone of her outfits, warm-toned makeup, and the overall “girly” look. Basically, the name says it all. She is not always in a dress. This girl has the cutest tops with angels, skies, and kitties.

She can make fleece sweaters look super cute paired with high-waisted jeans or shorts. Her head accessories are mostly decorated with pearls, starts, and whatever cuteness trends bring.

E-girl

This one is the edgiest person among the three. While VSCO is chill, Soft is cute and kind, “E” is bitchin’! Her clothes are a combination of darkness with a spark of bright color here and there. She likes chains and bold makeup heavy on the blush. Her distinctive features are the drawn stars or hearts under the eyes. You’ll rarely see such a person on the streets, as they often tone down the look a bit, but TikTok is full of them.

Not all are satisfied with the current fashion and follow the trends blindly.
