Aesthetics Wiki

Daydreampunk is an aesthetic inspired by Corporate 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, Basic Girl and Unicorncore genres.
