Female teen fashion has developed into three categories throughout this year, known as the Soft Girl, VSCO Girl, and the E-Girl aesthetics.
“I personally love the ideas of a Soft, VSCO and E-Girl. I think it is a fun way to classify our different styles and fashion tastes,” said Cumberland University fashion major, Mary Phillips.
Many know of the app Tik Tok, and how it has become overwhelmingly popular this year throughout the world. These three fashion statements were introduced through the app, and viewers are loving it!
“VSCO girls” are seen as girls who wear Puka shell necklaces and scrunchies, own Hydroflask water bottles and have trendy Bohemian bedrooms. The connotation has become quite negative in society, and people will often poke fun at the trend by saying things like “sksksk” and “save the turtles.” No one really knows where the phrases originated, but that has not stopped teenagers from using them.
E-Girls, on the other hand, are a completely different species of girl. The Urban Dictionary defines them as “a species of emo usually found on TikTok but commonly spends time on tumblr [that] can be found wearing pink eyeshadow with a large wing, little hearts under the eyes and a blushed nose. Normally [found] wearing some type of shirt from urban outfitters over a long sleeve striped shirt.”
E-Girls are typically wear darker clothing and accessories. They also tend to keep to themselves and give off a more edgy vibe than VSCO girls.
Last but most certainly not least are the Soft girls. The Urban Dictionary defines a Soft girl as a girl “who loves clips and headbands in their hair, cute necklaces and peaches … They are also addicted to lip gloss and love painting hearts and clouds in their cheeks. It is used to make them look petit and approachable. The polar opposite to a e-girl.”
People love soft girls for their “soft,” cloud-like fashion sense. Although they are not as “common” as the other two types, they are adored by the public.
