Fashion | The Depop Aesthetic and How to Achieve it
Depop is just another word for online thrift.
It’s an amazing world of fashion that’s filled with new, used or up-cycled clothing. I know that many people on Instagram now have become popular all thanks to Depop, including some people I’ve mentioned below.
I’ve been on depop for years and it’s done wonders for me in terms of making money. Not only did it help me make some side money, it has also helped me decide what kind of fashion I’m into. I decided I’m not super into the depop aesthetic but, it can be pretty cute sometimes, and very ME.
Let’s talk about depop and the aesthetic behind it. What kind of fashion are people into today? Well it’s a lot like this…

Depop Aesthetic and How to Get It in 3 Steps
The depop style is all about wearing what you want. Maybe it’s not a fixed style, but it’s kind of like a bunch of styles mashed into one. A style that makes that person feel most themselves.
Step 1: Try out some Y2K fashion
Y2k, which means year 2000, is the kind of style that would fall under the depop aesthetic.
It includes old vintage styles from name brands like Chanel, Versace, Fendi, etc.

Yes I have to add some Jennie looks.
Chanel is a perfect brand to look into, you can thrift many name brand items on depop
or any thrift store for that matter.

These outfits can definitely be found in a thrift store, or in someone’s depop shop.

This simple sweater and top is very old school.
The animal print collar shirts are very Y2K and fit the depop aesthetic nicely.
Step 2: Graphic T’s are your new best friend
Mix and Match all your outfits with a graphic T.
Here’s Jennie from Blackpink wearing a super cute top that I have wanted since I first saw this picture.

A simple graphic T can be purchased or thrifted.
I really recommend thrifting because it’s 2020, there’s so much out there that is thrown away. You don’t need to buy anything NEW.

Step 3: Cardigans will never die
I’ve always loved cardigans, if you don’t, I think the depop aesthetic will help you realize what you’ve been missing out on!

cardigans can be put together with anything to make the perfect outfit!
You can mix it with jeans, a dress, a graphic T and more.
It can also be a simple, hot mess, or elegant look. Which one is your favorite?
I’m sometimes a hot mess.

You can even wear a cardigan with nothing underneath. Yes, I’ve gone out like that before and no it’s not as uncomfortable as you might think.
Do you enjoy this depop aesthetic? If not, what kind of fashion style do you prefer?
Thanks for reading and be safe and happy!
