Return to nature with cottagecore aesthetic clothing
The Cottagecore aesthetic is a romanticised and nostalgic vision of a simpler, rural lifestyle. It is characterised by vintage-inspired clothing, natural materials, and a focus on the beauty of the countryside and small-town living. The aesthetic is often associated with a longing for a simpler, more pastoral way of life, and is often seen as a reaction to the fast-paced, urbanised world we live in today.

What is cottagecore aesthetic?
Cottagecore is inspired by the romanticism of Victorian & Romanic era countryside and rural aesthetics as well as activities that place in nature such as farming and foraging. There's a great emphasis on self-sufficiency and, to an extent, a rejection of modernity to embrace kindness, generosity, and lessening one's environmental impact.
When it comes to clothing, the Cottagecore aesthetic is all about vintage-inspired, natural materials, and traditional craftsmanship. Brands like Killstar, Restyle, Dangerfield, Black Friday, Mary Wyatt and Rogue & Wolf offer a wide range of clothing options that embody this aesthetic, including flowy dresses, cardigans, blouses, and accessories. The clothing is often made of natural materials like cotton, linen, and wool, and features delicate lace details, embroidery, and vintage-inspired prints. In terms of fashion, cottagecore also takes inspo from Victorian and Romantic era fashions such as flowing, loose-fitting dresses and skirts, layered clothing with puffy sleeves and generous pockets, overalls, lace and handcrafted accessories.
Colour schemes tend to be those more likely to occur in nature, like beiges, browns, dusty rose, and pale yellows, greens, blues and so on.
How can I mix cottagecore aesthetic and goth aesthetic?
Mixing the Cottagecore aesthetic with the classic Goth aesthetic are a match made in heaven. It's all about finding the right balance between the two styles. A good place to start is by pairing Cottagecore-inspired clothing, such as a flowy dress or blouse, with a Goth-inspired accessory, like a choker or a pair of platform boots. Think black and ivory lace, flowing maxi skirts, peasant blouses and bardot tops. Another option is to pair a Cottagecore dress with a gothic style cardigan or jacket. You can also try layering a Cottagecore blouse with a gothic-style top. The key is to experiment with different combinations and see what works for you.
Carry crystals on your person by weaving them into pendants for handmade accessories and incorporating nature-inspired prints like florals, leaves, etc. Try your hand at some Victorian updos with ringlets, braids and buns.
