You’re not alone if your goal is to wander through forests, bake fresh bread, run through wildflower meadows, and move to a quaint cottage in the countryside.
The previous three years have taught us a lot more about ourselves than ever before – we had the opportunity (a.k.a., we were forced to) spend more time inside than usual, and the idea of escaping the city to rural living became incredibly desirable.
That’s where Cottagecore comes in: it has been blossoming behind the scenes for years now, and the pandemic provided a space for it to bloom.
This aesthetic lifestyle gives anyone the opportunity to embrace a slower life that is reminiscent of Pride and Prejudice or Little Women. Rooted in fashion, this trend allows you to go from wearing princess dresses to gardening and participating in other activities harkening back to the late 19th century.
A great way to get a start on this trend here is 9 accessories to incorporate into your wardrobe.
