Daydreampunk is a sub-genre of Punk that specializes in daydream-themed visuals, along with a slight leaning to modern day punk. It was a common style in the early 2010s for tweens to children, often showing up in stores like Target, Walmart and Bath & Body works. Often referencing trends from that time, "dabbing" and internet slang, it quickly fell out of style, just recently picking up traction again.
This aesthetic contains the suffix "-punk" because Daydreampunk is about expressing yourself and individual freedom. Daydreampunk could be considered a "kid-friendly" mixture of punk aesthetics and pastel goth aesthetics - or at least the impression of that.
It consists of bright or pastel "magical" colors with fantasy elements such as unicorns or fairies laid out on a punk canvas. It takes inspiration heavily from late 2000s and early 2010s trends and aesthetics for young/tween girls. It can consist of bright galaxy prints, tie-dye, studded denim, and holographic punk-style shoes. It bears some resemblance to the Spacecore, Holosexual, Common White Girl and Unicorncore genres.
