The “cottagecore” aesthetic may have started to dominate the fashion scene in 2020, but it surely hasn’t lost any of its momentum. Last summer, when I thought the trend had faded away, thankfully the warmer weather brought the resurgence of the look. There are a variety of outfits that fall into the cottagecore category, but the one defining piece of the aesthetic happens to be a dress. Think dainty florals, puff-sleeves, and lightweight fabrics—these all make up the perfect cottagecore dress.
Summer is almost here, so if you’re looking for the perfect time to incorporate the aesthetic into your style, now is the time. While the style reigns in popularity, the market is a tad saturated with ethereal dresses you’d want to frolic in, but I narrowed it down to the best 26 I’ve seen, in all sorts of price points.
