TW: Brief mentions of sexual themes.

This is a sensitive topic. Many would argue that buying into this aesthetic and subculture is not far from a romanticization of pedophilia. Please research the implications of this style thoroughly before making the decision to involve yourself in it. If this makes you incredibly uncomfortable but you do like the look, you can still be a part of the Babygirl community and frown upon people in the community who do romanticize pedophilia.

It's still necessary to acknowledge even harmful influences on modern visual culture, but we at the Aesthetics Wiki DO NOT condone the romanticization of pedophilia.

Babygirl is an aesthetic taken from the BDSM subgenre of the same name. Babygirl encompasses sweet and innocent imagery and attitudes that give the wearer an overall childlike feel. The Babygirl aesthetic can vary from Babycore to Baddie to E-Girl or Pastel Goth. Often this can cross over with brat attitudes and behavior; this means the sweet and submissive nature can morph into teasing, pouting, tantrums, entitlement, and a compulsion to challenge others.



This is a more commonly seen type of Babygirl, they tend to be much more submissive and tend to be clingy sometimes. The Babycore attitude of Babygirls consists of submissive, sweet, and needy. Most people who adopt this aesthetic participate in age play (a form of roleplaying in which individual acts or treats another as if they were a different age, either younger or older).


The "Babycore" Side of the Babygirl aesthetic tends to wear sexier, pastel clothing, and childlike clothing. Some staples are:

  • Lacy socks/lingerie
  • Barrettes
  • Miniskirts
  • Shorts/co-ords
  • Mary Janes/sneakers

and much more.


Unlike the "Babycore" side of the Babygirl, this aesthetic is less babycore and more of a softgirl/baddie mix. This means it's less cutesy and more chic. Baddie Babygirls may be more bratty, but still submissive at heart.


Similar to baddie fashion but with more light girly colors.

  • Uniform skirts
  • Tights
  • White Air Forces
  • Graphic T's
  • Mini skirts
  • Hair Clips
  • Cutesy accessories


This the Babygirl style that tends to prefer darker colors than the typical Babygirl would enjoy. Often darker imagery is associated with this side as well, like weaponry, chains, and cute devil-esque figures. They may act like brats like the Baddie side would yet can still be sweet and submissive. This can encompass everything previously stated about Babygirls, just with darker colors and themes, although pinks and light colors are still used. This can be similar in style to E-Girl or Pastel Goth.


  • Dark Sweaters
  • Dark miniskirts/skater skirts
  • Thigh high socks
  • Chunky heels or Mary Janes
  • White sneakers
  • Chokers
  • Chains
