2. Indie Kid
The indie kid aesthetic is all about expressing your individuality. This trend takes pieces from other aesthetics and puts a more modern spin on them. Key pieces for this style include knitted sweaters, corduroy pants, bandanas, and more.
3. Soft Girl
Femininity is the core of the soft girl style. If you have pastel-toned cardigans, tennis skirts, and sweater vests, you're set for this aesthetic!
4. Insta Baddie
Tight dresses, biker shorts, designer clothing, chunky sneakers, and minimalist handbags are all hallmarks of the Insta baddie aesthetic.
5. Light Academia
This aesthetic will have you dressing in outfits that are white, cream, beige, and other pale colors. Don some eyeglasses and fill your tote bag with your fave books while you're at it!
6. Dark Academia
This is the visually darker counterpart of the light academia aesthetic. We suggest going for darker hues like brown, black, and gray for your outfits!
The Y2K aesthetic is one of the more well-known ones on this list. Elements of this style include baby tees, low-waisted jeans, chunky sandals, baguette bags, rhinestoned tank tops, and more!
8. Art Hoe
For this one, the primary colors are your best friend. This style also gets elements from the '80s and '90s, as seen on the windbreakers and combat boots that people with this aesthetic often wear. Bonus points if you own a Fjallraven Kånken backpack.
Grunge is a darker and edgier style than most of the aesthetics in this list. You'll need a lot of neutral tones for your outfits, like brown, olive green, and black.
If you're a fan of basic pieces like white shirts, blazers, sneakers, baseball caps, and more, you'll love normcore fashion. You can elevate your 'fit by going for interesting textures and cuts.
