After nearly three years of the Hot Girl Walk, it’s time to rebrand our daily little mental health walks. It’s served its purpose, but we’re looking for something that requires less effort. And, honestly, a little less positivity because sometimes everything sucks — and that’s OK!

So let’s get rid of the wrist weights, no-makeup makeup, colorful claw clips and matching workout sets. We’re ushering in the era of the Gremlin Girl Walk.

Wait, what’s a Gremlin Girl Walk?

We’re so glad you asked! While the Hot Girl Walk is all about manifesting your best self and only thinking positive thoughts while looking hot as hell, the Gremlin Girl Walk is pure feral chaos. The Gremlin Girl Walk is about curling yourself into your protective little ball like an armadillo on your way to get a medium iced coffee from Dunkin’.

(Yes, little treats are absolutely still a thing during the Gremlin Girl Walk.)

While we have no idea where the phrase originated, the trend has been popping off on TikTok for the past few months. All you need to do is roll out of bed, grumble, don your Gremlin Girl Walk accessories and grab your keys.

The world of the Gremlin Girl Walk is lawless. The world of the Gremlin Girl Walk is comforting. The world of the Gremlin Girl Walk means caring a lot about what people think of you by actively acting like you don’t care what people think of you. Does it make sense? No. But we, as humans going on their little mental health walks, don’t make sense.

That, my friends, is what makes the Gremlin Girl Walk beautiful.

Now, you absolutely do not need any Gremlin Girl Walk accessories. Remember, you’re putting in the least amount of effort here. However, if your closet is only full of Hot Girl Walk accessories and you’re easily influenced (same), we gathered up some of the best Gremlin Girl Walk accessories so you can live your best heinous and chaotic walking life.
