Hey everyone! Today I have a very different article for you. Glow Up Diaries episode 3 will probably come out on Thursday or Friday. Today's article will be similar to my "How To Be Classy" and "How To Dress Classy" articles.

my last two articles!

What does aesthetic mean?

According to the Oxford Dictionary, it means:

to be concerned with beauty or the appreciation of beauty.

and Dictionary says it is:

to be concerned with the study of the mind and emotions in relation to the sense of beauty
drawing, painting, and art image aesthetic, architecture, and europe image

So essentially, aesthetic is the study of beauty. On a surface level, you're probably thinking things lie makeup, clothing, physical appearance but aesthetic is so much more than that! Let's get into how to be aesthetic now!

Types of aesthetics

If you want to be aesthetic you need to figure out what type of aesthetic you like best. Personally I like the classy aesthetic but I also love the academia aesthetic as well. Ultimately, you should create your own personal aesthetic unique to you, but get inspiration from the following popular aesthetics:

Of course there are way more aesthetics but here are a few ideas you can look at!

How to dress aesthetic

So once you pick an aesthetic try to figure out how to dress to that aesthetic. Since aesthetic deals with beauty, you need to ensure that what you're wearing matches your aesthetic. For example, VSCO girl aesthetic should consist of jeans shorts, oversize t-shirts and sweatshirts, scrunchies, and messy top knots. Vintage clothing should focus on style from a different era. Classy fashion should be mostly formal, neutral colors, and simple.

Fill your life with your aesthetic

This step is the most difficult. It requires a lot of effort. I recommend making a WHI collection or a Pinterest board for your aesthetic and working from there.

After that, try to collect things that match your aesthetic (old books for academia, gold accessories for classy, etc) and do activities that match your aesthetic as well. You'll also want to act like your aesthetic. This may mean putting more effort into your appearance, grades, speaking pattern, and attitude. But don't change yourself in the process. Your aesthetic needs to match who you are, not change you.
