Have you ever read Matilda and wanted to escape to Miss Honey’s adorable little cottage in the woods? From being around flowers, hosting picnics and drinking tea with honey and lemon to taking dreamy walks through fields of flowers, the cottagecore life is one we all have fantasised about.

Well, since we can’t all quit the city life and escape into the woods, we can at least embrace the cottagecore aesthetic, taking cues from our favourite celebs.


Disha Patani

Carefree tresses, vintage floral printed dresses with minimal accessories and nude makeup — well, that is Disha Patani’s idea of leisure clothing. She looks absolutely adorable in these floral dresses with frill and ruching details. She chose to wear a simple chain necklace with a minimalistic pendant that gives off a sexy, carefree vibe we’re looking for.

Janhvi Kapoor

The Roohi actress chose to sport a gorgeous floral dress in Berlin that screams spring. The ivory-coloured dress has bright pink lilies on them, which emphasise the ‘cute-girl’ aesthetic. The pinks are overemphasised in Kapoor’s blush and lip colour, which makes the whole look pop. The structured necklace and thigh-high slit give the dress a sensual oomph, making it a great choice.

Kendall Jenner

Pink, floral, puffy sleeves and a sweetheart neckline? Sign us up! Kendall hits the brief of cottagecore perfectly with these photos. Not only is her dress as adorable as they come, but also fits the aesthetic seamlessly. Not to forget that the photos are taken in the middle of a field with farm animals — cottagecore approved!

Khushi Kapoor

The pastel lavender dress with pansies seems to make Bollywood entrant Khushi glow. The fitted bodice with ruching details adds a delicate feminine touch to the look, which is a great look on her. The flowing soft waves in her hair and peachy makeup just seal the deal. It’s simple, minimalistic and on point.

Masaba Gupta

As always, designer-actor Masaba looks like a summer dream. The bright sea green colour of the dress compliments the hot pink of the quirky floral print adding a fun element of colour. The length of the dress is flirty, making it a versatile ensemble. Masaba pairs this look with layers of chunky gold jewellery, which makes the whole look shine.

Mindy Kaling

While dresses seem to be on the memo for this aesthetic, of course we can trust Mindy to change that up. She chose to wear a long skirt with white daisies on them, while her top carried that floral aesthetic in a smaller print. Her choice of shoes are complete winners, thanks to the daisy motif. She completely rocked this vibe, Kelly Kapoor-style!

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey

Since we just spoke of Kelly Kapoor, how can we miss out on Pam and Angela? Yes, actors Jenna and Angela are BFFs in real life, and they rocked the cottagecore aesthetic like divas. They wore floor-length dresses with large floral motifs, making them look like spring personified.
