The Niche Categories

by Imani (cherubclouds)

Information about the niche aesthetic my packages will be based off of!

Cottagecore

The aesthetic that celebrates a return to traditional skills and crafts such as foraging, baking, and pottery, and is related to similar nostalgic things like cottages, farms and flowy clothes

Goblincore

Goblincore celebrates aspects of nature that most would find "ugly" or dirty, ranging from animals such as frogs and snails, to materials such as moss and mud, and plants such as mushrooms

Light/Dark Academia

This aesthetic is centered on and romanticises higher education, writing, architecture, the arts, and classical things like Greek and Latin. Dark Academia adds a gothic twist with colours like dark green, black and brown, whilst Light Academia focuses on a lighter, more soft colour scheme with beige, white and a lot of plaid!

The side aesthetics

I have mentioned the main niche categories, but there are also some side aesthetics like “grandmacore” 🧶 (which is part of cottagecore but mixed with things that would remind you of a grandma like knitting etc.) or “faeriecore” 🧚🏼‍♀️ (which is part of goblincore but focused on woodland magic and faeries). There are some others too that you can find on pinterest or you can even come up with your own! The floor is yours!
