It’s easy to think about the fashion community as one big, monolith, but in reality, it’s a diverse mosaic of varying style subcultures. One of which I frequently find myself referencing is the trendy, cool girl. A broad category in itself, it’s a bit Y2K, a sprinkle of coconut girl, with a dash of downtown sensibility. You’ll find equal parts vintage and micro-trends in their closet, along with a slew of emerging labels. In short, they’re the crowd to look to when you need to know which trends to keep your eyes peeled for.
Thankfully finding out takes little more than hopping over to Instagram to check out what’s brewing on the fashion it-girl scene. After browsing through a host of my favorite style accounts, it didn’t take long for a few trends to emerge from the midst of outfit pics and mirror selfies. Given the popularity of all things Y2K and retro, a few of these might give you a dose of nostalgia. For the full report of which finds cool girls everywhere will be wearing this season, keep scrolling below.
