How To Cottagecore
Cottagecore is the trend that has turned a small but growing corner of the internet into a wistfully simplistic world of twee picnics, wildflower meadows, homespun crafts and country living. Here’s how to embrace the aesthetic for autumn.
Cottagecore celebrates a return to a simpler way of life. Ethically and locally grown food is top of a cottagecore fan’s food shopping list. Trips to the local farmer’s market are a must as is foraging for food incorporated while rambling the countryside on crisp autumn days.
Cottagecore crafts range from upcycling to knitting, needlepoint to pressing flowers. Pick a craft your grandma practises and master it and you’ve nailed it.
Cottagecore is about sustainability, eco-living, mindfulness and tradition. It feels quintessentially British. Think chintz, chickens and faded country interiors. Collect and curate vintage fabrics and hang dried flowers or herbs as decoration for a homely feel. Cottagecore has a fairytale quality without the evil overtones. Most fans love the idea of living in a tiny cottage in the woods with roses round the door.
