Cool girl aesthetic has been dominating social media for the last couple of months, and we’re so here for it.

The style pulls inspiration from 90’s and noughties fashion trends, creating edge by adding chunky jewellery and accessories worn with confidence.

Who are the go-to cool girls pinned to our Pinterest boards? Think Emma Chamberlain and Bella Hadid.

These ladies have the confidence to pull off even the most out-there trends, and can often be seen to pull from vintage or thrifted styles.

How To Dress Like A ‘Cool Girl’

The essence of cool girl is effortless style. To get started, you’ll need some reliable basics. Every cool girl has a white tank, a pair of mom jeans, and a claw clip.

Once you have a good base, have some fun!

The best way to build you cool girl uniform is to get thrifty. Keep your eyes peeled for unique pieces, like leather jackets, cute 90’s mini skirts, and funky printed tee’s.
