Cottagecore and How to Wear It

Share This Post

I recently got into cottagecore (once I realized that it is just a small step from goth). I really love the comfort and flowiness of it.

But, as a plus-size woman, how do you wear this without it looking too tent-like?

Well, the key is the accessories. I have three looks here that are a goth/cottagecore, but with accessories, I have drawn the eye away from the more voluminous areas so people take in the whole look. That way it doesn’t look just “baggy”.

In all three looks, I am wearing my Doc Martens. Click on link to buy. I changed hats, but both wide brimmed hats are from Target. Again, click on links to buy. The belt is from Amazon.

Now, to the dresses. The one below is from Target.

This one is from Walmart, yep, Walmart.

And, this last one is from Amazon.

All three are affordable, so you can create a micro-wardrobe of cottagecore in no time! Perfect for Fall and the spooky season to come!

Happy Shopping!
