Cottagecore is the must-have aesthetic of 2020 as seen on Instagram, TikTok, and more
Plenty has been said about the fashion industry in recent times. Some claim it dead in part due to the coronavirus pandemic, while others liken this period to fashion's chrysalis phase; a lead-up to its eventual rebirth with all-new methods of presentation and innovation. Still, that's not to say it's all doom and gloom within the sphere. In fact, some sectors even experienced a spike in sales and interest amidst COVID-19. Loungewear is one of them, inside shoes is the other, and now, the latest addition to the list: cottagecore.
Cottagecore is centered around a specifc aesthetic rather than a singular fashion piece. It is the romanticising of simpler times; of "grandma" activities in the vein of gardening, baking, and picnicking that are all achievable while idling about in your abode. Naturally, this is all done while donning loose, billowing night gown-esque pieces straight out of a Victorian period piece. Think loose eyelet blouses, soft cardigans, and handkerchiefs woven charmingly through locks. Cozy and appropriate for Singapore's searing shores? We're into it.
