Aesthetics Wiki

Tweencore is an aesthetic that shares some similarities with Kidcore, maintaining the nostalgic and "childish" themes, but also embodying teen spirit often associated with the High School Dream aesthetic. It tends to borrow heavily from Animecore (especially more feminine anime like Sailor Moon and Fruits Basket), Scene, and Old Web (while also taking some fashion cues from the McBling aesthetic that this was inspired by). Its aesthetic is centered around the preadolescent period of the ages of 10 to 14, so while there is certainly a lot of pink involved (like you'd expect from Kidcore for girls), it's a slightly refined usage of the color pink. There's also an emphasis on Disney sitcoms like Hannah Montana and the Disney Princess lineup as well. It is similar to Bubblegum Coquette.

Visuals[]

Tweencore aesthetics involve lots of pinks and purples, pretty anime girls, old internet messengers from a bygone era (especially MSN Messenger and AIM), Disney princesses, and a developing rebellious spirit. One may also see Boy Band/Pop Princess/teen idol images pop up in the Tweencore aesthetic as well.

Fashion[]

For the Tweencore aesthetic, more feminine styles had flower, rainbow, butterflies and heart graphics and patterns alongside quotes. Less girly tweens wore Scene-influenced outfits, which combined bright colors with black.
