How to Be an “It Girl”
An “it girl” is considered to be a popular and attractive young woman, often a celebrity, who possesses a magnetic personality. Although people might think at first that “it girls” only have a stunning physique and are impeccably dressed, what makes them special is their attitude. Beauty and fierceness come from within. This is why 5-Minute Crafts has made a short guide with a couple of steps that may help you become an “it girl.”
1. Follow and set trends.
Many “it girls” know designer brands by heart and wear their own expensive designer pieces. It isn’t a bad idea to dress the part. For instance, this year’s fashion trends are all about maximalism: knee-high boots, maxi-length coats, skirts and dresses, and a lot of brown. Do not neglect the accessories — like puffer tote bags and belt bags. Although wireless headphones like AirPods are still a hit, there is an emerging trend of returning to wired ones.
2. Always be confident and set goals.
Gaining self-confidence isn’t the easiest thing on the planet, and it requires setting goals and acknowledging your achievements. However, if you get your confidence to a high level, you will most likely provoke attraction and admiration from others. Write down your goals to keep them on track, trust in them, and work hard — all your dreams can come true.
3. Maintain a healthy routine.
An “it girl” takes care of her body and always feels at her best. Make sure you combine a nutritious diet with regular exercise to remain fit and healthy. This requires some effort until you get completely used to it, but the results of your dedication will be noticeable. Being happy with your own shape will elevate your overall confidence too. Do not be too strict with yourself, portion control is the key here.
4. Develop an eye for business.
One of the myths about girls with an “it” status is that they don’t need to lift a finger at all to be famous and popular. It might seem effortless, but these girls are smart and willing to hustle.
Nowadays, self-promotion online has become a necessary factor in becoming an influencer. If you want to become a famous “it girl,” you should up your game regarding your social media presence. Take professional photos and post interesting content every day.
5. Don’t be afraid to show who you are.
Life is too short to be worried about what other people think. Stop trying to please everyone if you wish to become an “it girl.” You are who you are, so don’t be afraid to show the world what you’re made of. If you don’t love yourself, nobody else will.
Here is how our model, Valeria, explains the authenticity of this photo:
“For this photo, I had my makeup done by a professional makeup artist since I love to experiment with my looks and see myself trying out different looks. These plastic thingies on my temples are called ’face tapes’ and are nowadays often used by professional makeup artists because they help them do the makeup in a more modern way, as they give another form to the face shape, a form that goes in line with the beauty trend called ’fox eyes.’”
