Soft Girl aesthetic, aka soft aesthetic, softcore aesthetic or softie style is an aesthetic that might be confused with cute aesthetic, cutie aesthetic, pastel aesthetic, kawaii aesthetic, preppy aesthetic, and even girly aesthetic due to many common elements among these aesthetics.
But of course, the different names denote subtle differences between these aesthetics, and since our intention with The Mood Guide is not only to find out what your aesthetic is but also to help you find the best things within that particular little world, we tried to define this aesthetic as detailed and specific as possible.
What is the soft girl aesthetic
After an interesting journey through, Pinterest, Tumblr, articles, Instagram, We Heart It, and Wattpad, I came to the conclusion that the soft aesthetic is indeed a mix of a tiny bit of everything cute, pastel, and girly, but softer! This means to take your florals, pastel colors, and pretty in pink aesthetic and add an extra portion of innocent, childish, dreamy, and ethereal moods, symbols, and elements to it.
For example, you may love sweet and pink girly stuff and outfits, but not necessarily is into very childish things such as teddy bears. So, the soft girl aesthetic probably is not your aesthetic. But if you are in the mood to reconnect with your innermost innocent side and show it to the world, then this is your aesthetic.
It’s important to remember that being a soft girl is not about relating the navy aspect of innocence to being dumb or stupid. I actually think that is important to stop this stereotype because is very possible to be super positive, optimistic, dreamy, and attracted to cute and pretty stuff and still be a badass. Think Ariana Grande and Cassie from Euphoria, two great examples of badass ladies with strong Soft Girl aesthetic vibes that create a unique innocent, cute, and a bit childish identity to them.
Ps: there are other types of soft girl aesthetic, being the dark soft girl the most popular.
