A modern spin on earthy attire, the Black earthy girl aesthetic is all about fitted designs, layers, mixed metals, and soft, grounded materials and colors. An ode to Mother Nature (think simplicity, ease and sensibility), Gen Z is getting into earthy fashion, and a few celebrities are leading the charge.
While bohemian and “boho chic” fashion had its heyday in the late 1960s and saw a resurgence in the ‘90s, the earthy girl trend has a modern twist and is all about form-fitting silhouettes. Celebrities are among the ranks of Black women nailing the earthy girl aesthetic.
Since her days in the White House, Sasha Obama has been hailed as a Gen Z fashion icon. Her street style is comparable to none. She’s big on crop tops that showcase her midriff, as well as layering jewelry made from various metals and wearing fitted maxis and tunic dresses and skirts. Her style is giving easy but intentional.
Willow Smith’s take on the earth girl aesthetic incorporates inspiration from hippie culture and rock music. Whether she’s in the recording studio or on tour, you’re likely to find her in fitted tops, layered, metal jewelry and natural, earthy colors.
Known for her leading roles in “Everything, Everything,” “The Hate U Give,” and “Dear Evan Hansen,” Amandla Stenberg’s fashion is a playful mix of elevated elegance and true earthy girl vibes. In her time in the limelight, she’s rocked light textures, fringe and sexy, form-fitting silhouettes.
Skai Jackson’s style is chic, simple and effortless. She wears a lot of nudes and earthy colors, and she mixes crop tops, fitted tunics and oversized tops. If you are looking for an elevated, earthy girl vibe, look no further than Jackson for steady inspiration.
You might know Storm Reid from her work in “A Wrinkle in Time,” “Euphoria,” and “Missing.” While her style is youthful, elegant, and fun, Reid can definitely rock earthcore (aka earthy girl aesthetic) when she wants to. You’ll find her rocking natural hair style like an afro or box braids while wearing mid-to-low rise pants, cropped tees and oversized layers.
