We’ve all spent some time daydreaming about our ideal futures: what our home will look like, the kind of clothes we’ll wear, and all those other little details that come together to make a dream aesthetic. We asked the girls of our Her Campus chapter at CNU what kind of aesthetic they dream of for their futures, and here’s what they had to say.
Brooke: “I wish to complete my metamorphosis into the ultimate Light Academia working girl in a big city. Pearl headband, beige sweaters, high heels, with a magazine always in hand. I aspire to be a hardworking hustler in the journalism or fashion industry powered by ice coffee and pure feminist energy. Imagine a 5 foot tall pipsqueak strutting the town to attend an important meeting with Vogue! I hope to live an independent life filled with happiness in my professional as well as personal life.”
Alauni: “Whatever gives off the most bad b*tch vibes as possible! Red lipstick, a good pantsuit, and a badass degree. Anything that shows both grace and girl power.”
Abigail: “I want to have a streetwear aesthetic for my future. Think tomboy skater girl.”
Tiffany: “Lately, my social media feeds have been showing a lot of different fashion trends and I’ve been really intrigued by the “cottagecore” aesthetics. It just looks so soft and calming, something that I’d like to more into because the world is way too rushed these days.”
Chaeli: “I want to live a laid back life. I as grow older, I want to be one of those really chill old people. I think what fits that the best is the coastal vibes aesthetic because people like this live away from the hustle of life.”
Sierra: “I really want to live a comfy life in a house full of plants. I envision a tamer version of cottagecore: sage green furniture pieces, morning decaf tea, and plants hanging from the ceiling and sitting on window sills. I want my house and the nature around it to be a nice little safe haven for me while I make art.”
