A Guide To VSCO Girls

As the technological era increases and people spend more time creating online identities, we've seen the rise of the VSCO girl. VSCO girl, E-Girl, E-Boy all of those names, characters, identities, whatever you want to call them, have developed a new sense of who younger people are, the way they dress, and they way they act around other people. Mostly, these "characters" stem from real individuals and the VSCO girl is no exception.

Throughout the fall, I've attempted making jokes about them in order to bond with other people but it seems as though the majority of people have no idea what a VSCO girl is. So, instead of having to explain what they are every time, why don't I just make a guide so everyone can be well informed over who is truly a VSCO girl. And hey, maybe you'll find out that you've been a VSCO girl all along....

1. Wardrobe

In the summertime, this consists of a long comfort color t-shirt, Nike shorts, and Birkenstock, Vans (preferably white) or Crocs. While we haven't seen a VSCO girl into the fall and winter yet, it can be presumed that she'll wear a long sweater or t-shirt, Nike leggings, and a pair of Nike tennis shoes or Uggs.

2. Accessories


A shell necklace and enough scrunchies to go up to your elbow are the perfect accessories to pull of a VSCO girl look. Although they have all these scrunchies, they probably won't be used to hold back their hair, they're really only for the aesthetic. They can also be seen having a lot of Pura Vida bracelets and infinity rings.

3. Daily Necessities


Every VSCO girl is legally required to have a KanKen backpack and the largest possibly Hydro Flask they can find. Often times this Hydro Flask is covered in different stickers like Pura Vida, Vans, and several saying "Good Vibes". Along with the Hydro Flask, a metal straw is A REQUIREMENT. You have to have a metal straw. #savetheturtles

4. The Ride


The HOTTEST ride a VSCO girl could ever have is a Jeep. Nothing is more aesthetically pleasing than riding in your jeep with the top off while your friend in the passenger seat takes pictures of you for Instagram. If a VSCO girl doesn't have a Jeep, the's probably at least taken a photo on a yellow bike for the 'gram.

5. Routine

Although VSCO girls should still be going to school every day, that isn't their true dream in life. The real dreams and aspirations they have only involve coming TikTok Famous on the one and only app TikTok. They often spend hours practicing transitions and replying to comments asking about their age.

6. Talents


VSCO girls have two main talents: making friendship bracelets and photo editing, but they would like to say that bingeing The Office is also a skill. They can make friendship bracelets of any kind and use their Hydro Flask for them. To edit their photos they can use photo-shop or VSCO, making sure to saturate the photos a little too much and sharpen everything!

7. Vocabulary


There are two main phrases used by a VSCO girl: "And I oop--" and "Sksksksksksk". "Sksksk" can be used when they're trying to be #quirky and #relatable, and "And I oop-" is used when someone has said something a little controversial or has spilled a little bit of tea.

So... Have you just figured out that you've been a VSCO girl all along...?

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
