Bright colours, contrasting prints and a rush of nostalgia — that’s what the kidcore aesthetic is all about. With dopamine dressing on the rise, more and more people are looking to feature vibrant and playful elements in their wardrobes.

Be it quirky charm accessories or a subtle vintage vibe in the choice of outfits, the kidcore vibe is about bringing back beloved trends, be it from the Nineties or even from Y2K lookbooks. Here are some celebrities who ace this aesthetic flawlessly:


Monami Ghosh

Princess Leia hair buns and a cute co-ords set — what’s not to love? Monami nails the playful vibe in this electric blue bralette-miniskirt combo. The colour exudes the bright '90s vibe while the hairstyle cements the kidcore aesthetic.

Millie Bobby Brown

The Stranger Things actor went for a quirky kid-core aesthetic to promote her beauty line Florence by Mills. And we gotta say, the look earns her an eleven on ten! The crystal headband, the festive jumper and the cute bangs can work any day!

Bella Hadid

Bella proves you can be on-trend even if you look like your mom dressed you. The supermodel adds her chic, cool-girl vibe to the kidcore aesthetic with a bright woolly cap bedazzled pink sunglass chains and yellow sunglasses and throws in some baby braids.

Dua Lipa

British pop star and fashion icon Dua Lipa is at it again! She wears this Clueless-inspired miniskirt in black and pink and pairs it with a quirky, cropped top with cutout details. Her pink sunnies, wide '90s-style belt and boots seal the deal on a chic kidcore memo.

Sadie Sink

Max Mayfield of Stranger Things flaunts quite the kidcore vibe on her IG feed. She looks adorable wearing this pink smile motif sweater with a contrasting printed ruffled pair of pants. The look balances low-key boho elements and is oh-so-pretty.
