Cottagecore has blown up over the last year into one of the biggest trends as of late. It makes perfect sense, too, as the idea of living a bucolic life in the country or a lonesome log cabin in the woods and getting in touch with your inner ruggedness while remaining a gentlemen sounds like a special kind of heaven to us. Roaring fires, stacks of wood, roaming chickens, and endless wilderness all sound very appealing. As it goes, if you can’t have the real thing, then you can at least pretend to.
And so, cottagecore was born! Cottagecore for men is truly a lifestyle statement. While at one point in fashion history, tweed jackets, Chelsea boots, and chunky flannels were mostly associated with your grandpa's wardrobe, it turns out grandpa was actually a visionary trendsetter. There’s a deep thirst these days for men’s cottagecore lifestyle as there is definitely something undeniably romantic about strolling through a field in a flannel shirt or putting logs on a fire. Even if he can’t have the real dream, he can definitely have the look. We’ve collected our favorite cottagecore flannel pieces that your man is sure to love. We promise he will be dreaming of alpine forests and connecting to his natural ruggedness and inner rustic in no time.
To capture the cottagecore look, think gentleman meets mountain man. Whether he identifies more as a gentleman farmer or a hermetic woodsman, the country living aesthetic remains; when thinking of cottagecore pieces, think of a wardrobe full of flannel shirts, corduroy, plaid, tweeds, vests, vintage paisley, and argyle knits. If it’s got that rustic or vintage country vibe, then it’s perfect for the cottagecore-loving man. The idea behind men’s cottagecore style is to keep your outfits low-key, cozy, and equally fitting for both hiking or other outdoor activities and your everyday lifestyle. This means sleek boots, trendy pants, chunky knits, and lots and lots of flannel.
Every man needs a classic flannel shirt. Flannel shirts are truly at the core of the cottagecore look. Perfectly rugged while also being perfectly stylish, men’s flannel shirts are versatile, cozy, and comfortable. Easy to wear with so many different things, the flannel shirt is truly an effortless ode to the country life look. For the man who doesn’t like to stand out, choose a classic plaid with neutral hues that offers a subtle yet rustic feel. For the man who likes a little more color, pick a flannel shirt with bolder colors or a more impactful design. No cottagecore wardrobe is complete without a healthy set of flannel shirts.
Cottagecore isn’t just a fashion statement; it's also a lifestyle. Let this lifestyle follow you into bed with a set of cozy and snug flannel pajamas for him. He’ll love the look and the feel of these pajamas, and they will transport him to dreams of sleeping in his mythical mountain cabin in no time. The fun thing about men’s flannel pajamas is that you can get matching sets for the whole family so you can all rock your favorite cottagecore look.
Like flannel pajamas, men’s flannel robes are perfect for the man who is dreaming of the cottagecore life. Choose a flannel robe that matches the pajamas for the ultimate rustic and cozy set. We love flannel robes because of their comfort, ease, and style. Flannel robes bring up images of sitting by a roaring fire in a wood stove in fuzzy slippers after a long day of hiking in the woods. If he can’t get to the woods, at least he can get into his flannel robe and feel right at home.
Especially in the winter months, take your cottagecore home decor to the next level by switching out your bedding from standard cotton to fuzzy flannel. He is sure to love slipping into a bed with flannel sheets or under a flannel blanket. Just the feel of flannel calls to mind a log cabin in the mountains and will leave you both dreaming of bucolic country living while snuggled up in your flannel bedding.
Aside from the classic flannel shirt, there are also heavier-weight flannels. These are perfect for men who love to walk or hike in the late fall and want a thick and burly layer on top to keep them warm without compromising on style. Heavy flannel shirts can be worn as light jackets out or even around the house. Because they are so stylish, they’re also a great choice instead of your standard jacket to really make a fashion statement. He’ll love the ease and comfort of a heavy-weight flannel for all his fall adventures. These shirts are also easy to wear over a thick sweater for cooler days without compromising on style.
Flannel doesn’t only have to be a style statement, but it can also add a cozy and subtle flair to a garment. Flannel-lined shirt jackets are one of our favorite cottagecore pieces for men. Imagine your perfect rugged button-down shirt, lightly insulated and lined with your favorite flannel. Sounds to us like the cottagecore dream. Wear as a jacket in the fall months for walks in the woods or getting the yard ready for winter. These comfortable pieces are also conveniently stylish. He will love that he can wear them out and about and into town as well as while out stacking wood or hiking the trails. These rugged and rustic jackets are the perfect cottagecore jacket look for the man who loves to feel like he’s still somehow connected to the vibes of the countryside and wilderness. Similarly, the men’s flannel lined pants are the perfect warm and cozy pants for the cottagecore-loving man.
If your man loves a slice of the rugged and the rustic, then he’s definitely going to enjoy the comfort, style, and vibe of cottagecore flannel. Treat him to a few of these flannel pieces, and who knows, perhaps you’ll inspire him to go on a trip to the countryside with you and all his favorite flannel.
