Aesthetic fashion is catching up pretty fast and is becoming quite a trend. It is all about prioritizing a pleasant look in your fashion game. However, there is no hard and fast rule to aesthetic fashion, which perhaps is one of the reasons behind its growing popularity.
The choice and taste for aesthetic dresses are extremely dynamic, and being flexible as a concept, it can be changed or modified depending on occasions according to one’s taste. Some find the soft and pleasant look aesthetic while others find the vintage look to be absolutely up one’s alley.
It depends on the era, generation, purpose of dressing, and over everything else, the personal taste and sense of comfort of a person.
Considering the emergence of aesthetic fashion, it can be subdivided into several genres. Let’s explore some of the most prominent genres of aesthetic outfits and fashion styling:
- Early 2000
This was the first wave of aesthetic fashion and probably the most convenient one. Today, we are in the year 2023, the age of emerging technology, and hence, a fashionable look without compromising on comfort level is the utmost choice for everyone. In this era, dressing retro like in the 2000s, is the easiest and fastest way to reflect an incredibly beautiful aesthetic fashion, and the vital components that help achieve this look are XL hobo bags, low-rise jeans, and some old-school tees.
- Y2K Pop Punk
Bright pop makeup, braided hairstyle, and some chic skirts in lovely and very bright colours – yes that is the pop-punk style. Ideal for teenagers and college-goers, this is the ultimate fusion aesthetic statement to create. If you want to make it even more flashy, pair it with chunky boots and plaid corsets. The style adds a sense of creative vigour and energy, despite the colours at times being flashier. The trend is gaining ground all over the world and a lot of fashionistas are in more furthering the experimentation of this school of fashion.
Shout out to all the anime fans; this is the look you are going to grab eyeballs for. Dyed hair, with all the neon-based shades, such as fuchsia, blue, or green. If you don’t want to go for the ombre look, it is even possible to just simply dye only the front sections of the hair. The look will need tiny accessories and a touch of gaming components incorporated into the look, which could be carried by the designs or prints on your clothes or other accessories. Making the cheeks rosy with hyper-stylized makeup is an essential component of this aesthetic.
- Soft Girl
This style reflects an era that is dedicated to a genre, popularly called the soft girl era. The central pillar of the nomenclature is makeup and aesthetic outfits which are largely dominated by pastel shades. But it also encompasses some edgy accessories such as statement sunglasses, black baguette bags, or chunky boots. The idea is to reflect an aura that is soft, graceful, and feminine. Hair is a major part of the look. As for the aesthetic outfits, skirts, vests, and cardigans that are based on hues in the line of pinks and purples, carrying floral prints, are the game changers.
How to Reinvent Aesthetic Outfits for a New Style
If you are literally tired of everything in your closet and nothing seems to appeal anymore, you can actually reinvent your closet to create an aesthetic look.
It’s all in the basics; just think of some fusion matches with the aesthetic outfits and add or modify some components in your makeup and hair, and that is all you would need to get ready and step out.
Here are a few ideas easy for you to start the journey:
- Introduce a jacket or a stylish aesthetic shrug in your wardrobe.
You can pair it up with old clothes or ones which don’t comply with the trend anymore. The jacket will be helpful for modifying the look with multiple outfits and turning them aesthetically beautiful. Make sure the jacket is totally compliant with the new-age aesthetic look and perfectly suits the climate that you live in. Finally, check if the shrug, overcoat, or jacket, whichever you finalise, should be light in texture so that it does not overwhelm or dominate your look.
- Accessories and jewellery can add that instant edge to the look.
Create the best aesthetic look even from scratch just with a touch of classic aesthetic jewellery or accessories. For example, if you want to create a retro yet aesthetic look, go for pearl jewellery because they are perfect to create a sophisticated look. You may also experiment with a choker necklace or a studded bracelet.
- The final touch-up can be made by changing the hairdo.
This may seem to be quite insignificant on the first go, but a change in the hairdo will change your overall game. For example, if you want to accentuate your facial features, part the hair from the sides. You can also consider shortening your hair or trying out bangs.
- Another way to make your look appear aesthetic is by changing up your approach to makeup.
Create bold dramatic looks or wear false eyelashes. Red lipstick can also be a massive plus for creating the brilliance of the aesthetic look. Also, remember that manicured nails are an elementary component of the aesthetic look. Creating an aesthetic look does not always involve expensive stuff, and you can do it even on a tight budget. Just learn a bit, have some confidence, and reinvent your style to pull off a stunning look next weekend showing off your panache.
