What is cottagecore?

Chloe Griffin

There are still some ambiguities about the true translation of the term, because some bloggers claim it came from French, while others argue that it came from English. The most common definition is that “cottage” means farmhouse or hut, while “core” is derived from 1980s punk hard core music and means core.

The important thing is to know that this trend is permeated by some keywords, such as field, flowers, animals, gardening, picnic, simplicity, cooking at home, among others. Then, check out its main features and stay on top of this new fashion.

7 features of cottagecore

For some people, cottagecore is an aesthetic based on the idealization of country life. For others, it is an aesthetic that seeks a simple life, manual tasks, communion with nature (valuing plants and animals), light and delicate clothes. In this sense, there is no space for smartphones full of notifications, emails and work meetings with abusive bosses. Check out the features of this style:

Valuing country life and nature

Bucolism is present in this aesthetic and translates into life in the countryside being taken as an ideal life, which does not have excesses precisely because it is simple. In addition to being in harmony with animals and plants on a daily basis, away from stress and anxiety, very common elements in today’s urban life.



The cottagecore is interpreted as a nostalgic lifestyle, because it favors habits and even clothes that are old, like vintage clothes and the idea that life in the country, far from the city, is better, because it has more harmony and lightness.

After all, following this lifestyle, one seeks to be away from the daily pressures, from all technology and social demands, arising from the capitalist world. This does not apply, for example, to the rights and achievements of women and LGBTQI +.

Manual or household tasks

The development of manual tasks made with one’s own hands, also read as domestic, is an important point. This is especially true for caring for plants and treating food, such as harvesting fruits and vegetables and / or making your own bread or a juicy pie.

Outdoor Activities


Among outdoor activities, picnics are ideal times to be in harmony with nature and with true friends. In addition, those foods prepared with your own hands can be shared, as well as fruits.

These moments have clear or checkered towels, flowers and flowery looks, with transparencies or even linen. Other options are reading in an open place, under the shade of trees, or walking among fields of lavender or sunflowers.

Flowery crockery and decorative objects

Flowers are one of the highlights of this aesthetic, both for decorating a corner of yours, such as living room or bedroom, as for clothes. Flowered kettles and crockery or vases with beautiful flowers bring that air of field to any environment, as well as pictures with flowers accompanied by butterflies – even better if you paint them yourself.

Light cotton or linen garments

After all, the search for balance and the valuation of simple things does not match heavy clothes, full of brightness and very vibrant colors. It doesn’t even work with heels, so it is common to bet on flat sandals, shoes and delicate boots, with laces and earthy colors.

Simple life and reduced financial expenses


When it comes to simple life in the cottagecore, we talk about living only with what is necessary, without extravagance, as life in the countryside is idealized. In this sense, there is a reduction in financial expenses, especially if you start to develop manual activities that, before, you paid for someone to do – such as cooking, cleaning your own house or even making handicrafts, such as embroidery. When leading a simplistic life, we seek to value what really matters.

Interestingly, the style rose during the 2020 pandemic, during which many people found themselves locked in their homes, having to deal with the demands of home and work. It was an alternative to seek balance and comfort. Another curiosity is that the style has proved to be quite common among lesbian women, who have been looking for a lighter life. But are we going to look now? It’s the best part, no doubt!
