Electronic girl, commonly shortened as E-girl is a type of feminine alternative aesthetic similar to Pastel Goth or Plant Mom. Although the term E-Girl was coined to describe a type of girl who uses the TikTok app, the fashion sense of an E-Girl dates back to around 2013 / 2014 Tumblr.

Trends

An E-Girl usually wants to show off a persona of being geeky yet sexy while also being slightly dark. This often manifests itself through interests in anime/manga, video games, Japanese fashion and music, nu-metal, and lingerie.

Other common trends for a 2020 E-Girl include:

  • Pigtails with two thin strands of hair left out parted in the middle, similar to Harley Quinn's hair in the 2016 film Suicide Squad, or two front hairpieces dyed in a different color than the rest of the hair. Other hairstyles such as bangs, twintails, and split-dye hair are popular as well.
  • Wearing large, bold winged eyeliner along with blush on the nose, dark lipstick, and small doodles beneath the eye such as a heart or star.
  • Striped shirts and fishnets beneath ripped jeans
  • The Ahegao face, whether it's re-enacting the face or wearing it on clothes as a pattern. (Be careful, it is NSFW)
  • Dancing or lipsyncing to dramatic scenes, comedic scenes, and music (though this is a common trend on TikTok).

Fashion

E-Girl fashion tends to draw a lot of inspiration from Emo, Scene, Goth, Grunge, and Animecore; invoking a sort of "edge" to their personality. They also tend to wear their geekiness on their sleeves and will either wear clothing showing off this geeky side, if not getting into outright Cosplay with some of their fashion choices. Make-up wise, many E-Girls will often draw on freckles, put heavy amounts of blush on the bridge of their nose or their upper cheeks, draw wings on the corners of their eyes with eyeliner, and otherwise have an over-the-top look to them.
