VSCO Preppy is an aesthetic that is focused on bright colors, like pink and blue, and animal patterns like cheetah, giraffe & leopard pattern. It is commonly confused with Softies.

- pastel and bright colors
- animal print (cheetah, leopard, giraffe)
- brand logos and patterns such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Prada
- Roller Rabbit patterns (especially the pink monkey)

- floral print (especially skirts)
- ruffles (sleeves and skirts)
- stripes (aviator nation sweatpants)
Social Media worthy pictures are edited using the Coogee Filter (from the app Colortone), presets from Adobe Lightroom or the app called "VSCO". On TikTok, they usually use the "Brew" or "California" filter.
