The French aesthetic is all about effortless chic, simplicity, and understated elegance. It is often associated with a neutral color palette of black, white, gray, and navy, and focuses on quality over quantity. French style is all about mixing high-end and affordable pieces to create a look that is both trendy and effortless. To achieve this aesthetic you can create a wardrobe of pieces such as tailored blazers, neutral blouses, or trench coats. However, the best way to embody the French aesthetic is to accessorize with simplicity and attention to detail. Incorporate silk scarves, or lightweight long scarves in your French-inspired outfits, so they will drape beautifully across your body and enhance your silhouette. You can wear these scarves around your neck or on your head for an elegant touch to your everyday style.
This aesthetic is about romanticizing nature and life away from the loudness of big cities. To achieve this fashion style you need to incorporate breathable materials like linen or cotton, and also wool pieces into your wardrobe. Cottagecore is about layering flowy and floral dresses with knitted cardigans and comfy shoes for the outdoors. To perfectly accessorize cottagecore outfits you can add Aran scarves, or scarves with Celtic motifs, like those from this latest collection to elevate your outfits even more. A wooly scarf, or long shawl will complement any cottagecore outfit and help you achieve this style with ease!
The 2000s aesthetic, also known as the Y2K aesthetic, is characterized by a mix of futuristic and nostalgic elements. It is often associated with bold, bright colors, metallic fabrics, and a focus on technology.

Another staple you need for achieving this style is the ‘skinny’ scarf, a thin strand of light or sheer materials that can be characterized as an interpretation of the classic tie.
