Cottagecore is an aesthetic and lifestyle movement inspired by a romanticized idealization of rural life, particularly life in a cozy cottage surrounded by nature.

The aesthetic is often characterized by a love of natural materials and textures, such as wood, stone, and cotton, as well as a focus on traditional crafts like knitting, baking, and gardening.

Cottagecore represents a nostalgia and longing for a slower, more sustainable way of life, where individuals embrace simple pleasures like spending time in nature, reading books, and enjoying home-cooked meals at garden parties with friends.

This aesthetic has gained popularity in recent years, in part because it provides a comforting escape from the stresses of modern life and offers a sense of safety in a more picturesque natural world.

In terms of fashion, cottagecore style often features loose, flowy dresses, oversized cardigans, and other vintage-inspired clothing items.

The color palette is typically muted and earthy, with lots of creams, greens, and pale shades of blue.

In a rejection of the fast-paced, consumer-driven culture that dominates much of modern society, Cottagecore celebrates the simple and the beautiful.
