The Cottagecore aesthetic made waves earlier this year. Instagram feeds were full of flower-filled fields, wicker baskets, fresh baked pies, antique China and, of course, Lirika Matoshi’s Strawberry Dress.
Gaining popularity at the beginning of the pandemic, cottagecore gave us cozy vibes that helped ease the stress of navigating these unprecedented times. It’s a gentle reminder of simpler times plus its a natural progression from the last few seasons’ prairie craze.
The flower fields may now be covered in snow now, wicker baskets swapped out for leather bags and fresh baked pies exchanged for artscape breads but, it can be a pretty smooth transition to winterize your cottagecore aesthetic.
Don’t count cottagecore out just because the weather has turned cool. With the right pieces in your wardrobe, you can take the TikTok-approved trend straight into winter without missing a beat.
To winterize your cozy cottage look think of incorporating knits, darker tones, and full-length styles for a winter-appropriate interpretation. Add tights or knit stockings under those flowy dresses for warmth. Search out heavier fabrics like corduroy. Add chunky boots, scarves or knit mufflers. Layer dresses with turtlenecks or collared tops.
If you just dabble in the trend like me, to winterize your cottagecore aesthetic, try layering different dark prairie prints together. And if you really want to go all-in on the latest cottagecore must-have’s get yourself a tea cup holster! Yep, you read that correctly, a tea cup holster.
