Whether you have a tween or teen, chances are you’ve probably heard of VSCO girls. You might have a VSCO girl living in your house. Or maybe you’re still confused AF and wondering what the hell a VSCO girl is. Whatever the case, VSCOs are taking the world by storm and Twitter is here to help us make sense of it all.
First of all, if you’re wondering if you might know or love a VSCO girl, here’s your checklist:
how much of a vsco girl are you ?
– own a metal straw
– own a hydroflask
– own a shell necklace
– always wear oversized shirts
– own crocs/birks 
– have more than 3 scrunchies
– wears vans when you aren’t wearing your crocs/birks

Because basically VSCO girls are just kids who have borrowed our late-’80s and ’90s fashion trends.
My 8th grade daughter has been assigned to write a report on #VSCO girls for social studies class
I told her that was basically me in the late 80s and now she keeps bugging me for info pic.twitter.com/3k5W3b4Gj2

Or you know… they’re from Oregon.
Oregon created VSCO girls.

Even though our generation literally invented the VSCO girl look, somehow we just can’t pull it off anymore.

Accidentally said “it’s yeet, fam” instead of “it’s lit fam” and now my VSCO girl daughter won’t stop rolling her eyes. Fake.

But it isn’t all about fashion. It’s also about the VSCO photo app (obvs)…
evertime i see a sunset my inner vsco girl comes out

… and that “sksksksksk” noise that really just sounds like that fake laugh I do when I know I should laugh but something really isn’t that funny.
And if you get confused, just thinking of this handy reminder song.

But before we let VSCO girls take all the credit for their unoriginal originality, let’s remind them of the original “girls.”

But before we get too critical of the VSCO vibe, let’s not forget how ridiculous we all looked just a few years ago.
grown ass people make fun of VSCO girls as though we didn’t all use picnik which was 10000000% cringier

Basically, the VSCO trend can best be summed up as “our kids stole our ’90s fashion and made it confusing so we would feel old.”

nothing will make you feel old like your 10 yr old daughter explaining #vscogirl and then reading an article by a 24 yr old blogger who says it makes her feel old.
