These days social media has become the one-stop-shop for our personalities. For instance, you can go to social media platforms and pick up a personality trait based on the posts you follow. That is also how the social media platforms identify and put you in a bucket of the kind of content consumer. So, it should not come as a surprise, when there are a plethora of personalities that a person can choose from, including cottage core, soft girl, e-girl, and so on.
What Is Soft Girl?
As the phrase suggests, a soft girl is somehow timid, shy, and very soft in nature. There should not be a rowdy aspect to her. She must like her pastels and her pinks. She must like the florals and the cute arts that used to be a millennial’s dream when they were 15 and trying to get accustomed to how the movies would portray an actress trying to woo their men like the plushies and the cute, cuddly soft toys, the pen with the fluffy ends, etc.
A soft girl is someone whose behavior screams feminine, and there are no shades of grey. They are the epitome of “women love pink.” These women will hardly be seen in anything dark in the shade unless they pair well with pink, yellow, or even pastel. They do not believe in keeping their hair messy and following a more subtle and feminine routine in nature- like writing their diary on time and making coffee in their cute cups; white too should be within the white, pink, transparent spectrum of color.
How to Turn Yourself Into a Soft Girl?
A soft girl would choose a flowy skirt in nature and does not have any edge to it to match it with their oversized hoodie. The color palette is the most important, and as we have mentioned. It is heavily dependent on pastel shades or an excellent dark-ish pink. A soft girl wearing boots, mom jeans, or even can sometimes venture into a tie-dye crop top.
These women will always accessorize with clips and hair bands and channel their mild schoolgirl behavior. Although a soft girl can mildly trespass the territory of a VSCO girl if they are carrying their scrunchie wrapped around their wrists, the soft girl aesthetic can be maintained when it’s tied to their ponytail. They always have their specific little mug/flask that they carry (beware of the VSCO girl trends as carrying a flask is too close to VSCO, actually). Also, make sure to have a teddy bear soft toy or a fluffy ended pen ready at your disposal for all the times you might need to write in your diary.
Well, if you are trying to build a soft-girl wardrobe of your liking, we have covered many points above. To add to that, it is imperative to have a phone cover that falls within the shade range mentioned. You can also invest in some butterfly clips and use them in different patterns on your hair but refrain from using darker colors. A mom jean is a must, and the butterfly motif is essential.
Venture into the world of tie-dye to ease yourself into Soft Girl glam. It can be too much to have a lot of pinks if you are easing yourself into the soft girl aesthetic, but you can try shades of blue too. Also, a bucket hat will never disappoint and go crazy about the overuse of stickers on everything you own.
Imagine Mean Girl aesthetic but without a Regina Gorge’s shrewdness! It should look like a unicorn came to bless your life when you convert yourself into the glam queen. Always use pastel/pink-based makeup, and the overuse of gloss will truly be appreciated in the soft girl community.
Always make sure to post on Instagram, with at least one picture with the dog filter, and you will be graciously hosted by every member of the soft girl community!
