Softie is a group of aesthetics dedicated to going for as cutesy of a look as possible  , putting it in a trifecta of aesthetics, alongside VSCO and E-People. It draws a lot of parallels with some of the Kawaii-centric aesthetics in Japan, but with a more subdued look compared to how over-the-top some of the looks in Japan tend to get. They are sometimes mistaken for preppies.
Soft Girl TikTok
We've Added New Words! Soft girl is a fashion style, popular among some young women on social media, based on a deliberately cutesy, feminine look. It often features pink and yellow colors, floral and heart patterns, oversized sweaters and plaid skirts, and heavy blush makeup. Being a soft girl also may involve a tender, sweet, vulnerable personality. While egirls are known for a goth look and VSCO girls a s vibe, the soft girl dons on a cuter, pinker, more sentimental aesthetic , all qualities meant to be summed up by the word soft. There are many items associated with a stereotypical soft girl : pink, blue, and mustard yellow shades; flower, heart, and cloud patterns; t-shirts incorporating such words as baby , princess , and angel ; hair clips; baggy sweaters and plaid schoolgirl skirts; crop tops and high-waisted jeans; and heavy blush and lip gloss.
As a year-old millennial woman, I had to Google exactly what a "soft girl" and "soft girl aesthetic" was before I sat down to write this very article. Yes, there were certain styles that reigned in my day, like the emo era TBT to those very swooped bangs listening to My Chemical Romance and the Y2K period of low-rise jeans and Razr phones, but there are so many new aesthetics that have emerged since then: You have VSCO girls, e-girls, and now soft girls. The conclusion from my research and by research, I mean I watched a ton of TikToks on the subject , is that the latter group is known for radiating an all-around dreamy and romantic vibe. Their outfits often feature pastel tones of pinks, purples, blues, and yellows, but they sometimes mix in slightly more edgy or contrasting items like chunky boots , statement eyewear, or a black baguette bag. But the most important things are the accessories and makeup. I'm talking piling on necklaces, colorful hair clips, and scrunchies as well as applying lots of blush , bold eyeshadow, and even drawing little freckle-like hearts on your face.
