    Aesthetic is when something is visually pleasing. So to have a nice looking home, a nice wardrobe, etc that is a particular style and visually pleasing to somebody, that is an aesthetic.

    Probably because you hang out with Philosophy and Art History professors.

    Apparently, because people keep saying it.

    It is the current 'word' for 'looks pretty'. It is an instagram thing that, as usual, is so over-used that the original meaning has been lost.
