Pixel Cutie is an aesthetic based on a fascination of pixel art and games, usually involving cute, light colors like (but not limited to) pink, lilac, light blue, soft orange, etc. Sometimes it can also be associated with 8-bit clouds and sunsets, but not always. Pixel Cutie has a somewhat childish aspect to it.

Visual[]

Pixel Cutie is based on 8-bit art and digital art. There are usually fun, light, beautiful colors. Other pleasing images that fits this aesthetic can be clouds, sunsets, anime/chibi, animals, etc. Unlike aesthetics such as Lo-Fi (which tend to promote a more chilled-out, laid-back vibe), Pixel Cutie tends to go for more of a bouncy, fun, happy-go-lucky look that instills a sense of child-like glee. Inspiration for Pixel Cutie appears to be drawn from Mattel's Pixel Chix toy line and its website.

Fashion[]

Clothing that fits the Pixel Cutie aesthetic can include:

  • Brightly colored t-shirts
  • Tie-dye
  • Tees with art from video games
  • Light colored jeans/jean shorts
  • Bright colored sneakers
  • Light-colored hair-ties, scrunchies, or bracelets on wrists
  • Anything related to art or gaming

In a lot of ways, Pixel Cutie fashion can cross into the sorts of fashions often associated with something like Vaporwave and Seapunk (although with less sarcasm and cynicism that is often associated with Vaporwave and less of an aquatic vibe that is often associated with Seapunk).
