The Brief: Learn to replicate the iconic look of the TikTok eGirl with this style and gift guide.
Whether it’s for a Halloween costume, an eGirl factory TikTok video, or if you’re looking for a new look entirely, let this eGirl gift guide walk you through how to dress and style yourself like a classic TikTok eGirl.
Originally used as an insulting term to demean girls online, the term “eGirl” or “e-girl” has since been readopted by girls online. Broadly, an eGirl can be any girl or woman with an online internet presence. The label commonly refers to a certain archetype as characterized by TikTok videos. The quintessential eGirl is similar to goth, punk, and Tumblr girl counterparts, and is known for her signature style including cat eyeliner, eccentric clothing pairings, hearts drawn under her eyes, and blush brushed all over her face.
While there’s no one way to be an eGirl, we’ve highlighted some of the most recurring components of the eGirl look to help assemble a costume or wardrobe.
