Love dreamy cottagecore dresses and fashion? This is the post for you. Check out these 25 adorable clothing brands for your dream wardrobe. Affiliate links in post.
There is something so deeply satisfying about the cottagecore trend. First and foremost: it’s definitely aesthetically pleasing. Laying in a field of wildflowers with a nostalgic vintage dress on? Sign me up. However, it’s also a far cry from the capitalist hellscape that is reality.
Do I want to catch an overpopulated train to work, only to spend my day in a dingy office staring at a computer screen for 8 hours? Not really. Do I want to run away to a small cottage and spend my days sipping tea, reading and going for walks in the woods? Absolutely.
Alas, I cannot somehow make that dream cottage affordable or free myself from the chains of society. But what I can do? Dress for the life I wish I had. So today we are going to do just that! I’m excited to share 25 adorable cottagecore fashion brands with you all – perfect for picnic dresses and romantic style. Shall we jump straight in?
We’re starting with a bang! I love Etsy because you’re directly supporting small businesses (take that, Bezos!) and you can typically find really beautiful pieces. Bonus points as these dresses are tailored to your proportions – so they’ll be wonderfully flattering! (They’re also crazily affordable and the seller has a ton of glowing reviews.)
2. ASOS – For Tons Of Choice & Everyday-wear
ASOS always understands the assignment with stylish pieces for each new trend! I love that their clothing items are perfect for everyday wear – and don’t cost a pretty penny! If you’re looking for aesthetic cottagecore outfit ideas that you can wear day to day, ASOS will definitely have something for you.
3. Aliexpress – The Cheapest Romantic Fashion (High-Key Reformation Dupe!)
Now, my favourite place to get cottagecore dresses is hands down Reformation. The style is timeless and chic and the products are sustainably made. Both things we love. However, Reformation’s price tag is incredibly hefty – so my favourite place to get cheap dupes? Well, it has to be Aliexpress.
You can easily find adorable dresses for around the $10 mark – and their range of selection is unparalleled!

4. Affordable & Chic Cottagecore Fashion – ASTR The Label
Love the trend, but want a more mature and timeless option? Great! We love shopping slow on this corner of the web.
ASTR The Label is perfect for building a long-lasting wardrobe that you’ll wear year on year. Everything is romantic and dreamy – yet versatile enough to style in a ton of different ways. (Also, that sage green dress? Is everything.)
5. Reformation – For Sustainable Cottagecore Fashion
My one true love! Okay, we have already covered how much I love Reformation for vintage-style cottagecore dresses. And can you blame me? If I had my way, they’d make up my entire wardrobe. Plus, those embroidered jeans? With mushrooms. I’m deceased in the best possible way. These aesthetic cottagecore outfits are perfect for picnic days, dates and just general slaying for the ‘gram.
(I mean, do we still do that? Not really. But maybe Insta will make a comeback.)
Oh – and did I mention that they’re sustainable? Because they are and I’m here for it.
6. High-End, Designer Cottagecore Fashion Brand – For Love & Lemons
For Love and Lemons is one of my favourite brands – and they’ve been nailing the cottagecore trend before it was even popular. When I still lived in London and didn’t have to worry about things like rent, (thanks adulthood!) I used to treat myself to a For Love and Lemons dress each year on Black Friday. The quality is fabulous and the designs are absolutely beautiful.
7. Best Online Store For Casual Cottagecore Summer Outfits – Forever New
Woo-hoo! We’re keeping it local with an Aussie brand when it comes to Forever New. Again, this is a brand I have tried and adored. Their products are comfy, well-made – and perfect for casual summer outfit ideas. Bonus points because they don’t embrace trends too quickly – their clothing is pretty timeless, so you can keep re-wearing the outfits year on year.
8. Lost + Wander – For Cute Picnic Dresses
Vintage silhouettes, floral prints and pastel tones . . . everything you need for the perfect picnicking outfit! (Also did anyone else know that picnicking was a word? Because I was fully expecting Grammarly to scold me there.)
I love how whimsical these dresses us – even the small details like the flairs and the capped sleeves. They make me think of wandering down a pretty forest path with baskets, picking strawberries. Ah, what a dream! The ultimate cottagecore style idea.
9. Prefer Dark Cottagecore Fashion Brands? Try Max Studio
Admittedly, I’m hardly “down with the kids” – so I don’t know all the many sub-genres of cottagecore. But I know that one is dark cottagecore! So I think this fashion brand lives up to that task. (And is also very cute. I want that maxi dress!)

13. Another Affordable Sustainable Option – Faithfull The Brand
Yay – another budget-friendly sustainable brand! I try where possible to buy sustainably, but am also an international student who’s only legally allowed to work 20 hours a week . . . so when I find a sustainable brand that I can afford it’s a really exciting time!
