Softie is a group of aesthetics dedicated to going for as cutesy of a look as possible, 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.

Softboys are the male equivalent of the Softgirl. They are guys who are unafraid of showing off their sensitive and artistic sides with the clothing that they choose to wear. Despite their name, the Softboy also has ties to being the perfect male counterpart to the Art Hoe.
Unlike their Softgirl counterparts, the Softboy doesn't appear to wear many pastel colors. Instead, they choose to adopt more muted but still darker tones, but otherwise adopt a similarly vintage-themed fashion style like their Softgirl counterparts. Unlike their Softgirl counterparts, sometimes women will choose to adopt some of the fashion cues and trends associated with the Softboy look as well if they don't feel like adopting pastels into their personal color scheme.

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.
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.
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.
