Fresh off my latest binge of "Bridgerton" season 3, I've got one thing on my mind: coquette style. And if the 1.3 billion views of the trend on TikTok are any indicator of what's hot right now, I seem to be far from alone in my obsession.

The Oxford Dictionary defines coquette as "a woman who flirts," but in the context of social media, the hyper-feminine trend has adopted a much more playful meaning. Rooted in ultraromantic designs and frilly pieces that pay homage to Regency-era style, the coquette aesthetic is made to feel (and look!) like a confectionary dream — seductive, flirtatious, and unapologetically camp. It's a sharp departure from recent popular cores, much softer than the dark academia trend and more maximalist than the quiet-luxury or coastal-grandmother fad.

But what does it mean to actually embrace the coquette aesthetic? Is it as simple as donning a couple ribbons or shopping out curtains with dainty floral motifs? After a deep dive down the coquette rabbit hole (and a couple shameless rewatches of Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette"), I've got answers to the internet's most asked questions about the core — and a few recommendations for where to shop the trend online.

How to Shop the Coquette Aesthetic

Despite what TikTok would have you believe, the coquette trend is actually designed to stretch far beyond your wardrobe. Case in point: coquette home decor, which blends the pastel-doused imagery of "Bridgerton" with a kittenish modernity — imagine if Lana Del Rey and Penelope Featherington were roommates (aka the alternate universe of our dreams). The design aesthetic is heavy on lacy bows, soft pinks, and vintage patterns like toile.

And while the core might mirror the vibe of an aristocrat, it's actually surprisingly easy to replicate — especially if you know where to shop. Ahead, I rounded up the best coquette decor you can stock up on now from retailers like Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and Amazon, among others.

From a pumpkin chandelier and scalloped plates to a ruffled quilt and heart-shaped vanity mirror, these products are sure to infuse a welcomed dose of coquette into your life — and more importantly, into your home. Keep reading for my complete coquette-core guide.

It's not exactly an original Monet, but this retro oil painting does scream coquette core — with a dash of balletcore and "Tortured Poets" mixed into it. This print is sure to be the centerpiece of any room, especially if you hang it above a statement couch or bed frame.

Shell Ring Dish ($10)

The coquette aesthetic might emit princess vibes, but you can still channel your inner-mermaid with delicate pieces like this shell ring dish. Not only will the trinket look darling perched on top of a nightstand or office desk, but it'll also help to keep your most treasured jewelry pieces organized.

Don't let your attachment to your LED makeup mirror stop you from getting this heart-shaped vanity from Amazon. It might not help you contour your skin to perfection, but it will make a pretty addition to your at-home beauty counter.

Floral Bath Towels

Oaklee Cotton Terrycloth Bath Towels ($23, originally $35)

These floral-adorned bath towels look like they were transported straight from the '50s. Besides their rosy pink coloring and darling white trim, I love that the towels are equally functional, with a cotton composition that's soft and fast-absorbing.

A Grecian Bust Pot

A Grecian Bust Pot

Anthropologie Grecian Bust Pot ($28)

Think beautiful thoughts and new life will come bursting from you — or at least from this bust planter. The pot is designed to resemble a Grecian goddess and boasts a Regency era-charm that feels so on trend with the coquette aesthetic. I'd personally style this on a bookshelf or fireplace mantle (with a couple vintage books to match).

Elegant Curtains

Ophelia & Co. Bellana Polyester Sheer Curtain Pair ($29, originally $33)

It doesn't get much more whimsical than these voile curtains. With their sheer design, your home is sure to be drenched in endless sunlight. Plus, the faded floral detailing adds such a romantic touch.

A Candle Warmer Lamp

A Candle Warmer Lamp

Candeldo Candle Warmer Lamp ($30)

Since the coquette trend is all about blending the old with the new, you can't go wrong with having this cozy candle warmer incorporated into your home. The crystal glass lampshade mirrors the look of a wilted flower and gives off major "Alice in Wonderland" vibes. I also like that it's slightly tinted, so it emits a warmer aura rather than a harsh light.

East Urban Home Flatweave Oriental Rug ($40, originally $50)

If you're looking for a subtle way to incorporate coquette core into your home, consider centering your space around a romantic rug like this flatweave option from Wayfair. It's stain-resistant (making it a great option for spill-prone homes) and crafted from a 100 percent velvet fabric, so it feels super luxurious on your feet.

Scalloped Dinner Plates

Anthropologie Beatriz Dinner Plates ($64)

Lately, I've had an itch to host an outdoor garden party (a result of watching endless "Bridgerton" reruns) and am convinced these scalloped plates will help to transform my tablescape. Can you blame a girl? The plates are finished with a reactive glaze that gives each dish its own unique appeal.

A Pumpkin Chandelier

A Pumpkin Chandelier

House of Hampton Janush Vintage Pumpkin Chandelier ($178, originally $196)

Tempted to go all in on the coquette trend? I recommend splurging on a statement piece like this regal chandelier. The vintage lighting fixture features unique teardrop beads that look so luxurious, while golden candlesticks radiate the most romantic light. Hang it above your bed or in an unused corner of your home that could benefit from a little extra glitz.

A Retro Armchair

Kelly Clarkson Home Esme Upholstered Armchair ($460, originally $700)

This upholstered armchair is equal parts stylish and functional, with plush polyester cushions that are so comfortable, you'll want to spend endless hours curled up on it. The accent piece pulls inspiration from French design styles with its dotted nailhead trim. Scoop it up in this coquette-friendly blue coloring or shop it out in other options like a taupe or slate gray.
