The Black girl aesthetic is a bold statement of self-expression and resilience. I don’t think anyone would argue against the fact that Black women, for a while, have had a huge cultural influence via their style and have played a pivotal role in redefining beauty standards. 

Have you ever really thought about how you show up in the world and what others’ perception is of you? I do, often. Sometimes I care a lot and other times I couldn’t care less. However, your livelihood and/or social status could depend on how you present yourself. And it doesn’t really matter if you agree with it or not, it just is what it is. 

Some of our top Black and Brown influencers in the past 5 or more years have been setting a new (maybe reimagined) standard of beauty. A few of my faves and likely yours too: 

  • Patricia Bright
  • Jackie Aina
  • Teyana Taylor
  • Aaliyah Jay

There are so many others, but these women embody the different archetypes I think of when it comes to women’s style. In most friend groups you have the classy friend, the tomboy friend, the super glamorous friend, and the alternative friend. And before you shoot and say, “don’t put me in a box”, relax, it’s not that deep. Because honestly, on any given day you could fall into either of these categories.
