The good news is that you don’t have to hole yourself up in a cabin in a forest to get that dreamy cottagecore look.

Fall Fleece

You can’t fall without fleece. You’ll be able to transition easily from fall into winter depending on how thick your women’s fleece sweater is. Either way, this material is a safe bet for being cottagecore stylish. Feel free to lounge in your living room while snuggled up in your fleece cardigan. Dare to go out and about by wearing a fleece vest over a trendy blouse. Opt for fleece jackets or vests with a more tailored fit to style around your body’s natural curves. Doing so will flatter your body type without looking too bulky.

Autumn Flannel

If you’re excited about fleece, wait until we tell you about flannel shirts! Nothing compares to the feeling of being wrapped up in warm, fresh-out-of-the-dryer pure cotton flannel. Go for long-sleeved flannel shirts with a tailored feminine touch to flatter any body type. Besides being a great addition to the classic cottagecore look, your autumn flannel keeps you both stylish and warm the entire season.

The Flora and Fauna

Embrace nature by enjoying patterns featuring different trees, plants, and animals. Try seasonal fall flowers like sunflowers and trees like pine trees. Forest-dwelling animals also make for lovely prints such as tops, dresses, and sweaters featuring baby deer or squirrels. You don’t have to be shy or minimalist when picking patterns for that cottagecore look.

Sweet Shirt Dresses

There are so many ways to wear a shirt dress. You can wear it oversized and then belt it around your waist. You can pair it with Mary Janes or loafers for that sweeter cottagecore look. When cool weather hits, wear your shirt dress with thick dark tights or leggings. It’s a naturally relaxed look, so you can look chic without feeling overdressed.

Tune in With Tunics

Cotton tunics are an essential and flattering cottagecore choice. They’re light and airy, so they can be easy to pair with jackets and other accessories. Opt for light pastel prints or choice details like cap sleeves, side vents, and square necklines. Enjoying wearing your tunic with long skirts or wide-legged trousers. Pair a tunic with some laid-back white sneakers for a casual cottagecore style. Want a relaxed tunic top? Check out the elbow sleeve 365 tunic top in black floral or aqua breeze floral.
