VSCO is actually a photo and video editing app known for its filters. But, tween and teen girls are now calling themselves VSCO girls.
Over the weekend my daughter totally schooled me on what exactly being a VSCO girl means. I was nervous to find out because usually anything that is trendy these days isn’t always the best. I had to say I was pleasantly surprised and actually, am ready to embrace this trend…maybe because a VSCO girl is basically just me reliving my childhood.
Okay, so what is a VSCO girl?
From my understanding its pretty much the most basic girl you will find. A VSCO girl is apparently very aesthetically pleasing, trendy and loves the beach lifestyle. So far so good.
Scrunchies, shell necklaces, checkered Vans, Polaroid cameras, oversized t-shirts, and Hydro Flask water bottles are apparently some of the top items you need to be a VSCO girl.
Y’all I’m totally here for this trend!
Another major part of being a VSCO girl is being environmentally conscious. VSCO girls love using metal straws and Hydro Flasks to “save the turtles.” I mean if there’s any trend that I want my daughter to fall victim to it would be this one!
Also, little to no makeup is involved which is another yes from me. I’m told it’s very light and very natural, embracing their natural features. I can totally deal with my daughter wanting some scrunchies and a shell necklace and natural makeup!
Whether this trend is just for social media or it continues at school I’m totally okay with it! Plus, the look is giving me major throwback vibes to my childhood and tons of nostalgia!
Although this trend really isn’t something new, lets’ face it, this is what most moms dressed like back in the ’90s. This is really just a way for young tween and teen girls to connect at an age where their bodies and minds are going through major changes.
If a VSCO girl is what they are calling it then I’m here for it. Now I’m off to Amazon to order more scrunchies and shell necklaces.
