What Is VSCO Girl?
What is VSCO Girl and what does the term ''VSCO'' even mean? Lets start from the basics. The term VSCO itself, is the name of application that is used to edit photos. As strange as it may sound, this isn't the first time to refer a trend to a web application or service. One of the most popular trends before VSCO Girls, which some of us might still remember was a trend called ''Tumblr Girls'' which was referred to teenage girls using Tumblr internet platform.
A typical VSCO Girl would be best described as a young girl that focuses on being natural, cares deeply for the environment, self-care and is very active on social media with a like of TikTok and Instagram.
Their concern for the environment plays a very important role in this trend. VSCO girl would only use paper straws instead of plastic, use reusable water bottles, recycle rubbish, fight for animal rights and often be a vegetarian or vegan.
VSCO Girl Style
VSCO Girl is all about her style. VSCO girl's favorite colors are light blue, turquoise, pastels, mint and warm, bright colors (generally speaking, happy summer colors!). She is a surfer or a skater girl with a natural hair and makeup (if any) that likes to decorate her bedroom with Polaroid photos showing her happy times spent with friend on the beach.
The typical VSCO Girl wears tank tops, blue jeans and oversize t-shirts and jumpers. Simple jewelry with a like of mouline bracelets or shell chokers and 90's style scrunchies are also a must!
VSCO Girls are focusing on a natural look. Fresh and radiant complexion, natural long hair and very little makeup is the key here. They like to use Carmex lip balm, face masks and face mists instead of heavy foundation. They rather invest their time in to caring for their skin than putting on heavy make up.
