Discover the Coquette Aesthetic and Create an Edit Inspired by the Trend

A coquette is defined as a flirtatious woman and the coquette aesthetic interprets this as a celebration of dainty, hyper-feminity. More specifically, it dials back to nostalgic femininity that incorporates ribbons, ruffles, stockings, sheer fabrics and pastel colors. Pulling together a fit for the coquette aesthetic is easy enough, but in order to elevate the look, AirBrush lets you experiment with your features and makeup. 

The Coquette Aesthetic is…?

The coquette aesthetic is based on the transitionary phase between girlhood and young woman. So you may encounter lacy blouses and pastel mini skirts being paired with chunky heels and knitted socks. Accessories are youthful or juvenile and definitely “girly”. Think hearts and flowers, and glinting treasures in music boxes. We’ll show you how to capture that same aesthetic in your photos.

The Blunt Hair Bang brings alive the vision of youthful femininity in the coquette aesthetic. The blunt fall of hair recalls the bluntness and plainness of youth.
