A Beginners Guide To The Coquette Aesthetic
These days TikTok is a creative hub where you can find inspiration for almost anything in your life. Recently, we’ve seen the coquette aesthetic gaining lots of interest and rising in popularity among Gen Z. Like every other aesthetic we’ve already seen, there are a few things you can do to easily follow this style and here is everything you’ll need.
What is the Coquette Aesthetic
The coquette aesthetic is a fashion trend that revolves around the idea of seduction and beauty. This look focuses on alluring women with an effortless, glamorous lifestyle. The Coquette aesthetic has been growing in popularity for a while and there are many different ways to follow this trend.
Although the aesthetic has been gaining popularity on Tiktok, it originated on Tumblr in the mid-2010s when people were trying to mimic the persona of Lolita – a young girl who had been sexualised in the mind of her stepfather. This aesthetic was originally called tagged under Nymphet, however, now it goes by the name coquette.
The coquette aesthetic is typically embodied by teenage girls who are pursuing a hyper-feminine look. This can be done through fashion and makeup.
Coquette aesthetic clothing
Like any aesthetic, there are certain colours that you might want to stick to. For the coquette aesthetic, the best colours would be red, pink, white, yellow, cream and black. Obviously, you can wear other colours but it would be nice to have your wardrobe mostly filled with these ones.
When looking at clothes you want to buy for this style, look for patterns that are typically known for being feminine. This could include things like hearts, flowers, stars etc.
Skirts and Dresses
Since the coquette aesthetic focuses on being hyper-feminine, wearing skirts and dresses is an absolute must. There isn’t a specific type you should wear, normally they are quite short but that’s a preference.
The coquette aesthetic is very similar to the preppy aesthetic so wearing knitted sweaters is a must. This works great for layering your clothes and is nice during autumn and winter.
To spice up your outfits, adding a corset is always a great option. This would work best on special occasions like nights out with your friends.
For this aesthetic, make sure to have a big collection of items that are made of silk or have lace on them. This could be tops, gloves, corsets or shoes.
Accessorising always makes your outfits better so for the coquette aesthetic you should buy pearl necklaces, ribbons for your hair and shoes like Mary Janes. These will definitely elevate your look.
Coquette Aesthetic Makeup
For your makeup, it’s pretty simple and not hard to achieve. Stick to a basic look like applying foundation and concealer, filling in your eyebrows, and putting on mascara. To finish off the look just add some soft pink blush over your cheeks and nose with a pink or red lip gloss. You could also add some glitter to your eyelids if you want to go one step further.
