VSCO is an aesthetic that started like any other trend. It skyrocketed in no time and remains widespread and popular to this day. According to Parade, this aesthetic began in 2011, initially starting with a simple photo-editing app. This app added cool features to photos such as: B. Grainy effects and faded color filters. It has often been described as similar to Instagram, except that it didn’t show likes and comments publicly.
Shortly thereafter, the app itself found its way into the physical lives of children, adolescents, and young adults around the world. Clothing was oversized, pale, and lightly worn, and was often from popular brands like Luluemon and Crocs. However, the accessories attracted the most attention. Polaroid cameras, hair ties, and tons of bracelets all helped bring this aesthetic to life. This aesthetic is cute, simple, and a way for those everywhere to express themselves.
