Are VSCO Girls the New Trend?

VSCO Girl- Wears oversized t-shirts, tube tops or sweatshirt with Nike shorts. Has Vans, Crocs, Birks, and wears a shell necklace. She can’t leave home without a scrunchie, and don’t forget the hydro flask to finish off the look.

Recently, VSCO Girls has been taking over the internet. Best known as girls who always have a scrunchie on their wrist. Now, every girl wants to be a vsco girl rather than an Instagram baddie.

VSCO was originally an editing app, where you can add filters or edit lightings and contrast. Currently, you can see vsco girls everywhere, going to the mall, at school, or at a festival. They are literally everywhere, and it’s not that hard to spot them out of the crowd. The vsco girl look is a basic girl who has or wears a hydro flask, scrunchies, tube tops, oversized shirts, oversized sweatshirts, Nike shorts, shell necklaces, Birkenstocks, Crocs, Fjällräven backpack, and of course, a metal straw.

I interviewed Sophmore, Elisabeth Alery, to see her opinion on this.

Would you consider yourself a vsco girl? And why?

Alery says, “No, I wouldn’t consider myself a vsco girl, but I aspire to as basic as possible.”

What do you think you need to wear or have to become a vsco girl? And why?

“In order to become a vsco girl, you must have the following items: a scrunch, a hydro flask, long t-shirts, metal straws (#save the turtles), and a shell necklace.”

Do you see being a vsco girl as a negative or a positive thing? And why?

“I see being a vsco girl as an awesome thing, because as some drag queen probably said “you do you boo,” and I fully support that statement.”

How/Where do you think the word “VSCO Girl” began?”

“According to my research, “vsco” became a thing because of a photo editing app.”
