Aesthetics Wiki

The Schoolgirl Lifestyle aesthetic represents the romanticized school life of female students as portrayed by popular media. This aesthetic heavily focuses on academic visuals and motifs but not so much about the learned subject matter, as the goal is to experience comfort and joy from themes and visuals similar to modest private school life as opposed to high-end boarding school aesthetics like Preppy or the American school based High School Dream. Main themes of Schoolgirl Lifestyle include friendship, personal growth, learning, and more.
