Hot girl summer is out. Feral Girl Summer is in.
If you're wondering what the heck a "feral girl" is, TikTok is here to explain.
Bustle explained, "being feral means being uninhibited and unapologetically yourself — in the most anarchic way possible. Think: soda for breakfast, last night’s makeup for tonight’s party, the rat emoji, and blurry photo dumps on the grid."
According to VICE, the term “feral girl summer” has been floating around on Twitter since 2019, when Lorde released an announcement for her album Solar Power. The announcement read:
“There’s someone I want you to meet. Her feet are bare at all times. She’s sexy, playful, feral, and free.”
