Softie is a description word describing a group of aesthetics dedicated to going for as cutesy of a look as possible[1], putting it in a trifecta of aesthetics, alongside VSCO and E-People. It draws a lot of parallels with some of the Kawaii-centric aesthetics in Japan, but with a more subdued look compared to how over-the-top some of the looks in Japan tend to get. They are sometimes mistaken for preppies.

Softboy

Softboys are the male equivalent of the Softgirl. They are boys who are unafraid of showing off their sensitive and artistic sides with the clothing that they choose to wear. They have become one of the more known male aesthetics, despite their female counterparts typically being more popular. Softboys also have quite a negative reputation, related to the fact that some Softboys fake their soft sides. Among trans boys, Softboys typically have a bit of a different meaning and style and tend to be more genuine. The Softboy also has ties to the Art Hoe. Softboys have been said to be influenced by K-Pop.




Fashion

The Softboy does appear to wear pastel colors (optional) but is also know to wear more muted but still darker tones. Otherwise, they adopt a similarly vintage-themed fashion style like their Softgirl counterparts. Can also wear things a Softgirl would wear.



Oceanboy

The Oceanboy (also known as Oce-boy) aesthetic can be considered to be a more laid-back and easy-going type of the Softboy aesthetic, mixed with the Blue aesthetic. This is a color and environment-based aesthetic, focusing on oceans, light, and pastel cool-tone colors.

Visual

While Oceanboy tends to still use pastels from time to time, darker, cooler color palettes are preferred. Beaches, water, or docks are all common, but not essential.

Fashion

Oceanboy tends to be a bit brighter than Softboy, as to really bring out the cooler colors. They opt for comfy, simple outfits that allow them to simultaneously look softer.
