You may remember the “cottagecore” fashion trend that emerged from the earlier days of quarantine in 2020. Since we were all staying at home, it’s easy to see why the style picked up so much steam: It was an escape to imagine yourself in a quaint cottage or living in the countryside when wearing any of these romantic and breezy designs. You could transport to a world where your only responsibilities are tending a garden or baking a pie or leisurely taking a turn about the room. Sounds great, right? And if you’re a fan, the good news is that it’s not going anywhere. The aesthetic is perfect now that we’re entering the warmer months of spring and summer.
Hill House Home and its now-iconic “Nap Dress,” only made the style even more popular. It’s all about loose, comfortable silhouettes that have a homespun quality about them whether they incorporate lace, ruffles, crochet, smocking, or embroidery. Because there are so many more labels that fit into this category, we rounded up 15 of the best cottagecore fashion brands so you can channel all the relaxing vibes. If you want even more similar styles to browse, click the links to shop nap dresses and house dresses. (Yes, they do have some overlap, but the former are more about, well, napping in and the latter are more about lounging in. Enjoy!)
