A new trend in 2019 is what most people would call “VSCO.” This trend, though known by both genders, tends to be adored more by females over males. Given this statistic, the term, “VSCO girl” was soon born. What is a VSCO girl? And what is the history behind the trend in general?

For some who may be knowledgeable of this fact, “VSCO” is a photo editing app used for profiles among many social media platforms. However, a large group of teenaged girls, generally dressing and acting the stereotypical role of the “beachy Southern California hottie,” seemed to be enjoying and using the VSCO app more than the rest of the public who had VSCO accounts. This “VSCO Southern California girl” look consisted of multiple, pastel-colored scrunchies, a pooka shell necklace, AirPods, wavy hair tied up into a messy bun, a classic hydroflask dressed in aesthetically-pleasing stickers and handmade friendship bracelets, and a colorful, oversized T-shirt, finished with a pair of Birkenstocks sandals and a Kanken No.2 backpack.

Soon, other news of how the ultimate VSCO girl lived to a day-to-day basis came out to the public. The idea of only using metal straws with every Starbucks drink to save the environment (especially the turtles), never leaving the house without Carmex lip balm, and hopping into a jeep before driving to the beach swarmed the media who craved knowledge of the notorious “VSCO girls” of 2019.
