Cottagecore aesthetics: inspiration and style tips

Drawing inspiration from nature and spending reckless summer days in the countryside has always been our favourite getaway, especially when life gets so hectic these days. Together with that comes our passion for vintage aesthetics, flowers and slow living.

First, we started capturing this mood in our pictures and handmade embroideries. After a while, it all merged into our brand of linen clothing for women and kids.

If you ever wondered what kind of style this is, now it finally has a name – it’s Cottagecore. So for today’s coffee break, dive into the story of this lifestyle and enjoy our curated photo gallery with lovely designs from our shop!

First Comes a Brief Definition

Cottagecore is lifestyle aesthetics inspired by a romanticised interpretation of western agricultural life. It draws the most influence from the English countryside (hence its name), the Romantic and Victorian periods, altogether creating an idealised representation of farm life. 

Cottagecore in Fashion: How To Wear It?

Cottagecore fashion is, above all, simplistic and comfortable yet effortlessly chic. It is perfect for dreamy summer days — to pick flowers, read favourite poems and enjoy slow living.

Here are our tips on how to create a Cottagecore outfit from scratch.

To begin with, Cottagecore fashion commonly involves longer, loose-fitting clothing, for example, flowy dresses and skirts.

It is also common to layer the clothing – adding apronsjackets or coats.

Big pockets, puffy sleeves, ruffles and buttoned blouses also characterise the Cottagecore style very well.

Finally, don’t forget to accessorise – add hand-crafted accessories such as hats, scarves, collars, capes or bags to complete the look.

Mix and Match: Top Cottagecore Colours and Patterns

Cottagecore is all about a naturalistic colour palette with warm earthy tones, as well as pastels. Talking patterns, the most common ones are stripes, paisley, faded floral, and gingham.

Sustainability Also Matters

As Cottagecore is closely connected to nature, it cares about sustainability, too. Next to vintage items, the new Cottagecore-style products tend to use eco-friendly materials that could serve generations to come.

All items from our shop are made of 100% natural linen — a high-quality material with many benefits we believe you gonna love, too. Read more about our favourite linen features here.

The Cherry on Top: Embroidery

Embroidery is another signature of Cottagecore aesthetics. Nature, of course, is one of the main visuals here, including such motifs as plants, animals, and insects.

Many garments from our shop can be complemented with beautiful embroidery, too — all you need to do is select the preferred option on the product purchase page. Learn more about our embroideries here.
