Flowers are timeless. But there was a time when they were considered old people’s stuff. Not anymore, not in the era of aesthetic photos, Pinterest, Tik Tok, and Instagram. And do you know why? Flowers look good in pictures and they mess with people’s minds. They are like inducers because flowers are part of our deepest emotional fantasies of being loved and cherished. Ask every aesthetic TikTok influencer and they will have a few mood boards of flowers inspiration. And roses play a special part in the game. Traditionally, each color of roses has a meaning (and I get into the thick of it at the end of this post), but in the era of aesthetics, we can go the extra mile into picking bouquets of roses that will speak to your loved one’s soul.
After all, we all wanna be seen and flowers are a thoughtful gift for any occasion, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s day, wedding anniversaries, just because, graduation, thank you, you name it. In this post, we are going to show you how to pick not only the right color for each occasion but the perfect bouquet of roses for the most popular aesthetics like baddie, soft girl, cottagecore, art ho, dark academia, light academia, and normcore. And don’t worry, if you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’ll break it down in a failproof way.
Rose Aesthetic Guide
Flowers & Aesthetics
Don’t you dare walk into a Baddie girl’s life with anything less than the most expensive and luxurious red roses your money can pay for. Baddie girls are in charge of their own choices, they are positive about their bodies’ curves, and they love luxury goods.
The Soft Girl lives in an etheral delicate paradise. Everything about her life is in soft pastel colors, mostly blush, and she is a romantic at heart. She has white or light pink nails, girly clothes, and a princess room. Give her a pastel bouquetwith blush roses, lavender, and white flowers and watch her sweet smile open up.
Don’t be fooled by the moody life of your favorite nerd who lives in dark libraries, and loves rain and coffee. Under those dark oversized tweed blazers and chunky mary janes lives a sensitive soul who would love and Edgar Allan Poe inspired forever black rose. No natural flowers for Dark Academia, after all they are not willing to let tons of light get into any room.
Light Academia is the bright version of dark academia. It’s all about the academic environment but in shades of white and beiges. It’s elegant and sophisticated, like old school academics. Gift your light academia girl with white orchids. It will match her color pallet and add an intellectual vibe to the room.
As much as cottagecore girls are all about living in harmony with nature, therefore, they will love any sort of plants you give them, daisies are the most symbolic flowers for this aesthetic. And make it as simple and natural as possible. A bouquet of white and yellow daisies wrapped in brown paper will go a long way with your cottagecore loved one.
The normcore girl does not want to be the center of attention. Therefore, she will dress in a way to look low profile and discrete. She is in the opposite spectrum of the baddie girl. To enchant a normcore girl, go with a small bouquet of white calla lilies. They are not full of emotion like roses or bucolic like daises and they are right on point for a basic person.
The Art Ho aesthetic started among the black and LGBTQ+ community on Tumblr and it’s all about living a creative life and expressing yourself through art. OF course, they take a lot of inspo from the 70s and hippie aesthetics, after all, it was the most creative and free decade of the XX century. Get your Art Ho girl the most imaginative, colorful, and a fun bouquet of flowers you can find, but make sure it has a sunflower on it!
