Trend Spotlight: Cottagecore! Bringing Country to the City with a Nod to Slow Fashion

Hi everyone, it’s Emily! 

I just got back from vacation in Bald Head Island, North Carolina. It was awesome. There’s no cars on the island, the population year round is about 400 people, and there’s maybe 3 or 4 restaurants to pick from. I definitely needed the quiet, peaceful lifestyle outside of big ol’ Los Angeles.

Now I’m back on the mainland, and I want to talk about a lifestyle/fashion trend that’s been on my radar for a few months - Cottagecore. This whimsical, rural inspired trend has me craving the peace and quiet of my most recent trip to coastal North Carolina and the countryside where I grew up in Pennsylvania. This trend is the epitome of country meets city. Like just about every trend, there’s things I like and don’t like about it. So I wanted to share with you what it is, what’s so great and not so great about it, and ways to wear it. 

But first, what is Cottagecore?

cottagecore - slow fashion trend

Cottagecore is the culmination of clothing, interiors, and lifestyle activities inspired by living in… welp, a cottage. You could even say it’s partly a side effect of slow fashion because it favors a more intentional approach to dressing and everyday life. The Cottagecore aesthetic gives off an air of whimsical romanticism. Some might say it includes a pinch of practicality needed for living on a farm or a plot of land in the middle of nowhere, but I basically grew up on a farm, and I can tell you firsthand no one is wearing this stuff haha. But that’s fashion!

Cottagecore has been flitting about the past few years, probably from the Covid 19 pandemic when people were (and have still been fleeing) busy cities and opting for a simpler lifestyle. It’s frequented by models in rose print puff sleeve dresses that are way too formal to wear to work on your garden, but represented in that way nonetheless - thanks Instagram ;)

The trend consists of chunky knits, Victorian inspired details, and puff sleeves, as well as midi and maxi dresses in natural fabrics and pastel colors. You’ll see frills, eyelet, intricate details, and quilted pieces lumped into this trend.

What do I like about this trend?

I love that this trend touches on handmade- embroidery, puff sleeves, corsets, floral dyed prints. Some might say this trend encourages investing in timeless pieces, but I’d say that should go for every trend! And that’s probably why I’ve been drawn to Cottagecore, considering my love for slow fashion and handmade :) It’s about embracing a rural lifestyle, and that’s how I grew up. With some aspects of the trend, you can see that practicality is a priority, which is also important to me. IMO, if it’s not practical, it can’t be an investment piece. 

A few things that aren’t my favorite…

I’m not a huge fan of corsets. To me they are impractical and not super chic, probably because they were intended to be undergarments. But I would never discount them completely. I love seeing a design re-thought, and I’m sure there is a designer out there rethinking the corset in a new, elegant way. :)

Another thing- puff sleeves aren’t for everyone. Especially when they hang off the shoulder. They make shoulders look broader, which isn’t a bad thing, unless you have a straight, stocky or large bust-ed body type, and you are looking for a flattering, elongating silhouette. I’m personally weary of them because I have broad shoulders. But alas, there is a time and place for everything and sometimes it's about the design as a whole and not a single element. 

Tips on How to Wear/Practice It

Cottagecore is one of those trends that you don't just wear; it’s also about a lifestyle (remember hygge??). It’s a trend that transcends the clothes; it’s also about how you choose your clothes and being mindful of where you purchase from, too. :)

Here’s a few looks/labels that embody the trend:

Genevieve Dress! Hehe had to sneak this in here! I can’t get over this ditsy floral print. :)

CRYPTO CURRENCY REVERSAL; WEB BAILIFF CONTRACTOR
The world of online finance, with its promises of quick riches and easy gains, can be a complex landscape.  For me, that landscape turned into a nightmare when I fell prey to a ruthless scam on an exchange platform.  The dizzying sum of $566,797.00,  my life’s savings,  vanished into thin air,  leaving me stranded on a desolate island of financial ruin.  Desperation gnawed at me,  a constant reminder of my folly and the callous disregard of the scammers who had taken everything from me. I desperately searched for a lifeline,  a solution to my predicament.  My online searches led me to a plethora of so-called “hackers,”  each promising a quick fix, a magical solution to my woes.  But each encounter, each attempt to reclaim my stolen funds,  ended in further disappointment and loss.  It was a vicious cycle of betrayal,  a relentless barrage of empty promises that only deepened my despair. Then,  amidst the swirling vortex of online scams and charlatans,  I stumbled upon a name that resonated with a promise of hope and redemption – Web Bailiff Contractor.  Their reputation as the “best hacker on the web” was whispered in hushed tones throughout the shadowy underbelly of the digital world.  I was skeptical, and cautious,  but driven by a desperate need to reclaim what was rightfully mine. My initial contact with Web Bailiff Contractor was a revelation.  Their professionalism and expertise were instantly evident.  They understood the nuances of my situation, the intricate web of deceit that had ensnared me.  They didn’t offer empty promises;  instead, they provided a clear roadmap,  explaining the challenges and the potential pitfalls of recovering my lost funds. The wait,  though agonizing,  was far less excruciating than the endless cycle of scams I had endured.  After just two days,  Web Bailiff Contractor delivered the news that I had longed for,  the news that brought a glimmer of hope back to my life.  They had recovered a substantial portion of my stolen funds,  a testament to their prowess in the digital realm, and their mastery of ethical hacking techniques. My experience with Web Bailiff Contractor was a turning point, a testament to the power of integrity and expertise in a digital world that can be challenging and fraught with deceit.  They are more than just hackers;  they are champions of justice,  digital knights fighting against the forces of darkness that lurk in the shadows of the internet. I urge anyone who has fallen victim to online scams,  anyone who has felt the sting of betrayal in the digital world,  to reach out to Web Bailiff Contractor.  They are a lifeline,  a beacon of hope,  a testament to the enduring power of human ingenuity and determination. The digital world can be a complex place,  but Web Bailiff Contractor stands as a bastion of hope, a force for good, and a reminder that even in the darkest of times,  there is always a fighting chance to reclaim what has been stolen.
