Build the Cabincore Wardrobe of Your Dreams With These Key Cozy Pieces
Dare we say it: cottagecore has peaked — at least for 2022, that is. With fall weather in swing, cabincore is our preferred aesthetic for quintessentially cozy vibes. You know: oversize knits for curling up in by the fire; fleece coats and lace-up boots to pair with jeans for an afternoon of apple picking; sweater dresses for hosting farm-to-table dinner parties (complete with a gourd and pumpkin centerpiece display).
Of course, moodier floral prints make up a big part of the cabincore pie, be it a vintage-inspired dress, billowing blouse, or swingy skirt. Speaking of which, what an utterly dreamy outfit for baking with friends and family leading up to the holidays (don't forget your vintage-inspired apron)? The more layers, the better, whether you live in head-to-toe neutrals or are into autumnal tones like moss, copper, and saffron. Items like shackets, quilted coats, and vests (of the knit or tweed variety) are exemplary pieces for mastering the look. Small accents are ever-important, too, like lace trims, frilled sleeves, and Peter Pan collars. Accessories are not to be an afterthought, either — felt and wool hats, knitted hosiery, leather belts, weather-ready shoes, and neck scarves are stylish heritage touches tie it all together.
Cabincore dreams are made of the 19 pieces ahead. Read on to secure your favorites.
