Aesthetics Wiki

Aesthetics are an internet phenomenon wherein a person with a social media account (such as Tumblr and Pinterest) reblogs/posts images or snippets of text on their digital space for the purpose of creating/conveying a mood and appreciating things the collector considers beautiful/visually appealing. These include various subjects, such as fashion, settings, people, objects, quotes, etc. Often, people create moodboards, TikToks, edits, niche memes, and playlists for the aesthetic.

These do not have to be carried out in real life, and there is often an element of wish-fulfillment, nostalgia, or escapism with internet aesthetics. However, people can carry out their aesthetic in real life through fashion, home decor, and participating in certain hobbies or activities. Because of this, some of the more popular and attainable aesthetics have become subcultures, such as with Cottagecore.
