Billowing sleeves, long lines, riotous ruching and paisley prints. They’re just a few of the sartorial stamps that define the Cottagecore trend sweeping the rolling hills of the international fashion landscape right now.Cottagecore is an aesthetic driven by a romanticised version of western agricultural life. Think all that is green, verdant and natural. It encompasses everything from golden apple tarts to garments defined by romantic florals, flowing dresses, soft knitwear, and pastel colours. If you could visualise a dreamscape of all that is idyllic and charming about country life, pastoral motifs of Cottagecore will fill the mind.
Think rustic elegance paired with floaty shapes and painterly print pandemonium for ensembles that fuse The Sound of Music’s styling with a VOGUE cornfield shoot’s wistful sex appeal. These outfittings are designed for a metropolitan extension of farmhouse life, mixed with a dash of ‘80s ease.
We’re welcoming in the breath-of-country-air trend for a divine dose of escapism and bucolic beauty. A few Harrolds-loved brands that fit this breezy brief include Bernadette, Erdem, Alessandra Rich, La Collection, Wynn Hamlin and Mason Michel.
Harrolds has farmed the fashion circuit for the best on-trend pieces to help you live out the Cottagecore fantasy in the height of style. Here’s the crème de la crème of this trend’s seasonal crop:
