What is Cottagecore?
Cottagecore is the aesthetic style that is centered on ideas of simple life, self-sufficiency, crafts, caring for living beings, and harmony with nature. The Cottagecore Aesthetic extends far beyond your outfit. it’s inspiring an overall state of being, covering everything from fashion, gardening, interior design, and art.
Cottagecore is also often called Farmcore and Countrycore, but that’s not quite accurate. This is actually an individual aesthetics.
Farmcore is based on simple living and crafts.
Countrycore is an aesthetic based on wild west and late western agricultural life.
They both are, indeed, considered as Cottagecore offshoot aesthetics.
What is Cottagecore Aesthetic inspired by?
Cottagecore Aesthetic is inspired by a romanticized escape from our modern lives and embracing timeless simplicities, like – sewing your own clothes, tending the garden, local artisans’ skills and crafts, sustainable living, connection with the land, and most importantly – harmony with life itself.
Cottagecore’s main idea is to be gentle with ourselves. To do the best we can for the life that surrounds us, our homes, and for the earth – like it’s our garden.
History of Cottagecore Aesthetic. Who invented Cottagecore?
The aesthetic of simple living was always in minds of modern society.
There was a fashion movement among nobles in 18th-century to build their ornamental country mansions in the style of pastoral villages.
The 19th-century crafts movement treated art, architecture, and design that involves “folk” styles and methods as an industrialization critique.
The modern aesthetic of a simple life and harmony with nature started to develop in the early 2000th with cinematography growth. In 2010th there already was a small vision for a nature-based aesthetic that continued to grow.
At the same time, in 2010th, the Japanese fashion style Mori Kei was developed. It’s inspired by living in the wilderness and nature-based clothing.
The term “Cottagecore” first appeared on Tumblr at the end of 2018 and as you may see, it started to gain its audience in 2019 and gained a maximum of Google search queries in November 2020.
It’s no surprise that people all over the world started to think about simple life and unity with nature in 2020. COVID outbreak and climate change are definitely leading people’s thoughts to forgotten lifestyles.
People are always turning to the past to becalm the stress happening in the present.
