Vanilla Girl is all about the oversize sweaters and cardigans. The aesthetic is about equal parts cute and cozy.

Choose knitwear in neutral colors, such as white, beige, or gray, with classic prints, such as stripes or Americana themes.

Button-Down Shirts

Even a Vanilla Girl needs to have a button-down classic shirt in her closet.

Wear it alone or layer with other items to make this timeless piece ultra versatile. Wear it over a tank top, or under a sweater that has the collar sticking out.

You can wear stripes as well as solid white button-downs.

Basic Tops

The basics are important for a good reason. They may not be *the most exciting* fashion option, but they will always be the most versatile and practical.

Vanilla Girl embraces the basics. So, rather than buying a bunch of trendy items you won’t wear more than a few times, buy simple tops you can wear again and again.

They can be camisoles with light solid colors, tank tops in plain white, or crewneck tops.

Choose a top with a subtle print. For example, a delicate, light-colored floral pattern, classic stripes or anything with an Old Money, preppy feel.

Vanilla Girl Bottoms

Fold-Over Waist Flared Pants

Yoga pants are essential for Vanilla Girls. They provide comfort and can be worn every day. Choose styles that have a folded-over waistband, a flared or bootleg shape and are made from soft, stretchy fabrics.

If you want to achieve the Vanilla Girl look, choose a lighter color like heather grey instead of black. These pants look great with Adidas Sambas, Ugg boots or slippers to create a cozy feel.

Light Wash Jeans

Vanilla Girls like light-washed denim in a relaxed fitting. These jeans go with everything. They look great with basic tops or oversized sweaters.

For the summer, you can swap them out for denim shorts.

Beige Wide-Leg Trouser Pants

Beige trousers are a great choice for a more formal look. This item is a classy choice: it has a neutral colour, a classic design, and a loose, relaxed fit.

A Vanilla Girl might pair these with neutral-colored sneakers, like the New Balance 530s, for a casual look (whereas Old Money Girl may choose pumps or loafers).


Trench Coat

The tan trench is a classic outerwear option for spring and fall.

A trench coat is a timeless piece that will last for many years. Its neutral tan colour means that it goes with everything in your wardrobe.

Teddy Sherpa Jacket

If you’re going to be wearing a jacket in colder weather, choose a teddy-sherpa jacket that is light colored. What could be more comfortable? !

This soft, fluffy jacket will keep you warm and add a touch of Vanilla Girl style to your outfits.

Vanilla Girl Shoes

White Low-Top Sneakers

Adidas Sambas, this season’s best pick, are a must-have for any wardrobe. These shoes are simple yet trendy, making them an absolute must-have.

Consider neutral-colored sneakers from Reebok and New Balance. They will go with your Vanilla Girl outfits just as well.

Ugg Ultra Mini Platform Boots

Uggs are a favorite of Vanilla Girls, particularly the Ultra Mini styles and the Tazz slippers. This is because the aesthetic is all about comfort and coziness. These shearling-lined slippers are a perfect example of this!

Vanilla Girl Accessories

Dainty Gold Jewelry

Keep it simple when it comes to accessories. Wear some delicate gold jewelry on a regular basis.

Your Vanilla Girl outfits will look more polished and put together with pieces like gold hoop and layering necklaces.

Canvas Tote Bag

This timeless bag will complement your Vanilla Girl outfits perfectly. It is also a great bag for school.
