I had never heard of cottagecore until I saw it mentioned in one of my daily Newsette newsletters. The article mentioned #cottagecore on tik tok and I went to check it out for myself. I loved the aesthetic and it also made me more aware of other subcultures such as dark academia.
I love the idea of subcultures when one of the recent online classes I took touched on the subject. Much more than a trend, it almost defines a group of people based on a stereotype. This one is right up my alley and while I jump around from different aesthetics, I do enjoy this one.
Also known as farmcore or countrycore, I will say that is has been criticized a bit on twitter for being known as what the rich use to show off their country home. I think that it is definitely more than that but it is also a downfall. I also took this Buzzfeed quiz and I got 53% cottagecore. Comment below what you get!
What do you think about this dreamy, nature-based aethetic?
Here’s my attempt at some cottage core with an edgy feel hence the boots.
