is cottagecore still a thing?

You’ll recall, of course, the rise of cottagecore as a trend during the days before and during the Great Lockdowns of 2020 and 2021. The embrace of simple, traditional and DIY activities, like raising chickens, baking sourdough bread, throwing pottery, and picking wildflowers. Making jam or candles, quilting, crafting and creative writing. Foraging, sending and receiving hand-written letters, and the aroma of fresh-baked cookies all around.

3. Hunter Wellies

The Wellington boot is a staple of the cottagecore trend. If you’re in love with the idea of rural life – complete with fields, farms and authentic mud – you need rubber boots. Sturdy, durable, knee-high rubber boots. But that doesn’t mean that they can’t also be chic. We love these new tall white glossy wellies from iconic brand Hunter.
