An aesthetic often refers to a specific fashion style with additional color, location, and hobbies attached to its “look.” Although there are endless types of “aesthetics,” some of the most popular these days include cottagecore, soft girl, grunge, Y2K, dark academia, minimalist, and old money aesthetics.
Junior Victoria Van Cleave said, “I really like cottage core, just because it’s very pleasing on the eyes.” The cottage core aesthetic generally idealizes rural life. It celebrates simple living and hobbies rooted in traditional skills such as baking bread, knitting, or gardening. Van Cleave said, “There’s something about the idea of being in a cottage away from things in nature that seems really calming.” Senior Gigi Edwards said, “I can appreciate parts of nature that set a good general vibe for a person.” The aesthetic juxtaposes old and new in its fashion, often featuring ultra-feminine dresses that are still reasonably comfortable. The cottage core fashion color palette mainly features solid earth tones, possibly with floral patterns. Puff sleeves, flowy fabrics, and dainty headbands are popular accessories.
