The cottagecore fashion trend was all the rage in the early days of quarantine. Early into 2020, as people were staying home, style began to reflect the fantasy of staying in a quaint cottage, living a simpler life. Even though the trend started about a year ago, this type of fashion is still very much in style.
The style is all about loose fabrics and a homemade feel. Many of the designs incorporate elements of embroidery, lace, and crochet. As the trend expanded, it began to incorporate many different elements, styles, and brands, making it easy to shop for this aesthetic.
Two of the most well-known styles under this umbrella are nap dresses and house dresses. Even though these styles overlap slightly, they both keep the elements most important to cottagecore: the loose silhouette and fit. The nap dress was trademarked by and brought into popularity by Hill House.
The style of the nap dress is said to be descended from Victorian-style gowns. While this garment has long been available, the style was revived with the cottagecore trend and is seemingly not going away anytime soon. To shop this style, click here.
