If you’re the parent of a tween or teen, you’ve for sure heard the term “VSCO girl” by now. But, like, what does that even mean? You might have tried to start a conversation with your kid to find out. Alas, we all know figuring out how to talk to kids that age is never easy. You’re in luck, though — we, the people of the internet, have the answers. Clad in crop tops, Crocs, and puka-shell necklaces, the VSCO girl has a beachy surfer vibe about her, even if she lives in Ohio. She might have talked you into the expensive Hydro Flask and (also expensive) funky Scandinavian square backpack for her first day of school. She most definitely has an oversized scrunchie around her wrist and considers herself “chill.” Does any, all, or most of that describe your daughter? Congrats! You birthed a VSCO girl. And because we know you’re looking for more ways to connect with her, we created a collection of VSCO coloring pages for the two of you to bond over.
Now that you’ve had a few minutes to ponder the above description, you’re probably thinking, “Wait, was I a VSCO girl? Am I still a VSCO girl?” Yeah, Boo. Probably. The big diff? The *new,* now-with-a-fun-label VSCO girl comes with pet causes. She cares about the ocean, clean water, and sea turtles. Who are we to argue with that? “But, Scary Mommy, why are you labeling my teen?” Hey, we didn’t come up with the VSCO girl phrase. It looks like it originated on TikTok, like everything else these days. And definitely don’t take our sarcasm as contempt. We love our VSCO girls because, yeah, many of us were VSCO girls before they had a label. If we weren’t, we were emo, goth, preps, or some other socially necessitated label. Being a teen is hard work and requires a ton of self-exploration. Labeling ourselves, outfitting ourselves in the uniforms of our subculture, and often, settling into the music that defined it is all part of getting to know yourself.
Speaking of music, we pulled some lyrics from bands and artists that seem popular with VSCO girls right now. It might not help you understand the adolescent at your dining room table, but sneaking these lyrics into conversations while you work on our VSCO coloring pages might just earn you some brownie points. And so will following up these pages with our collection of coloring pages for teenage girls, aesthetic coloring pages, girl coloring pages, and trippy coloring pages.
