Cottagecore is a huge aesthetic right now, despite hitting its peak back in 2020 when we all dreamt of living in the countryside, growing our own food and living a self-sustainable lifestyle in cute dresses and bandanas.

The idea of your only responsibilities being baking bread and sweets, tending to your garden, strolling in flowering meadows and patching up clothes makes it easy to understand why this trend got so popular during the pandemic.

The good news is, no matter the time of year, you can participate in this trend – even if you live in a studio apartment with only a window to the outside world!

Cottagecore Fashion

The Cottagecore style predominately consists of peasant silhouettes, delicate floral patterns and muted colours – basically, think about what a farmgirl in the nineteenth century would wear, but make it modern.

The most common elements of Cottagecore fashion involve:

  • Patterns, which includes gingham, plaid, floral, paisley and stripes.
  • Layered clothing that have large pockets, and puffy sleeves (the puffy sleeves are important).
  • Hand-crafted accessories such as knitted hats and dainty jewellery.
  • Flowing dresses and skirts that are inspired by those worn to complete housework in the 1900’s.

And, most importantly, there are lace corsets and bodices.
