Pookah shell necklaces, friendship bracelets, parachute shorts, scrunchies, oversized t-shirts, Birkenstock’s, and a big messy bun on top of your head now makes you something called a VSCO girl.
Which is crazy, because I just described the outfit I wore to school all four years of high school. The term Vsco girl actually originated on tiktok (it’s a new app that’s sort of a cross between Instagram stories and Snapchat all the kids are using. You can follow me here.)
Basically a VsCO girl is every nineties girl trend rolled up into one. The term back actually comes from the popular photo editing iPhone app that the girls were using to give their photos sort of a vintage feel. (Or vintage “aesthetic” as they like to call it.)
They are covering their hydroflasks (that’s the expensive water bottle everyone is carrying today) with cute, colorful stickers and trying their best to be eco-friendly with metal and silicone straws.
It’s a fun trend that most of us who have teenage daughters are totally loving, and trying not to let them know that it’s only cool because we did it first. 😉
But they’ve taken it to a whole new level, because not only are vsco girls all the rage right now, but there’s an entire sub-culture devoted to making fun of the vsco girls, too.
Their water bottles are loud when they drop them. When they laugh it kind of sounds like “sksksksksksksk” instead of a real laugh because they’re too busy trying to be cute.
These girls are so nice they will share their scrunchies with you, but do you really want to borrow it in the first place?
All in all, vsco girls are a harmless trend, and if your daughter is one, it’s kind of a good thing, because it mostly just stands for a good, clean cut girl trying to do the right thing.
And if your daughter is a VSCO girl, here are some things she MUST HAVE!
