What is coquette aesthetic?
It is a super feminine approach that embodies subtle seduction and rescues naive touches. By definition, a coquette is "a flirtatious woman" and is the embodiment of femininity and seduction, yet subtle. A return to the lace and ruffles of the Victorian era, combined with elements such as ballerina shoes or long white stockings. Accentuating the feminine, the elegant and also the childish, is the central axis of the Coquette Aesthetic trend.
Where and how did the coquette style come about?
It is a look with roots in another social network: Tumblr. There, in the early 2010s, many young people began to appropriate the Lolita aesthetic, referring to the work of Vladimir Nabokov. With great fury in countries like China, Japan and South Korea, the style was adding details such as the color red and pronounced makeup. It is a vintage or old aesthetic trend where pastel tones, and especially pink, are the undisputed protagonists of it. But not only the colors, because other characteristics such as flower prints, bows, necklaces or hats are also very important. Garments and accessories form an ultra-feminine and vintage-style look to reflect that 'coquette' aesthetic that conquers Generation Z, those young people with a strong nostalgia for everything that has gone by.
As for the visual, it could be taken as a reference to Shabby Chic, a decorative trend, but with similarities to the Coquette, especially in terms of sophistication and the range of colors.
What style is inspired by the coquette aesthetic?
A historicist aesthetic, but with an eccentric and exaggerated touch, where there is room for ruffled collars, toupees or floral prints, which coexist with other decorative elements such as satin bows, pearl necklaces, hats or headdresses of all kinds. Although this trend accentuates the feminine, it also does so from a traditional place, since pink and white colors abound, along with pastel tones. In addition, it is linked to a stage of youth and adolescence, approaching the styles known as Soft Girl or the Lolita movement.
Characteristics of the coquette style
Dresses, shirts, jackets with flowers are ideal. Nowadays we can even find stockings with drawings.
In the 'coquette aesthetic' they are present on the collars of the shirts, on the sleeves, on the bottom of the skirts.
White and pastel colors
You will not find very dark colors in this aesthetic, quite the opposite. White, off-white, pale pink, sky blue, water green and lilac are typical colors of the coquette style.
Lace or tulle
Fantasy and preciousness, rather light lace is used, in white and pink and tulle to give this sensation of cover and not at the same time. Tulle sleeves are a key accessory if they are not already on the garment.
Beyond the ballet aesthetic, this trend plunges into angelcore and royalcore with lace blouses, Mary Janes or Guillerminas combined with ruffled or woven stockings, touches of pearls and a palette of soft pastels and some flowers.
Pearls, the key accessory in jewelery
You can never miss in the 'coquette aesthetic' this little gem that we find in pendants, rings or earrings. But it is also very present in the clothes themselves, since it is common to see pearls as decorations on the buttons of the blouses or on the cuffs of the shirts.
You will not see heavy eyes or smokey eyes, but the subtle use of blush, pinks, and sometimes peach. Try brown mascara for a more subtle look.
Garments to become a coquette girl
Long, with lace, many folds, petticoats and ribbons. The Coquette trend seeks to return to that typical elegance of the Victorian era. Without neglecting embroidery, floral prints and lace. Remember the light colors here. In Clotsy you can find shirts, skirts and dresses

More towards the style of farmhouses and life away from the city, the quadrille is a way to adopt this style in a tender but more relaxed way. Clotsy has this ideal set.
There are two shoe options that fit perfectly with the style. On the one hand, the boots, more commonly used. On the other, closed shoes, in keeping with the Lolita trend. The second option is somewhat more daring, since it allows the combination with white and long stockings. Any footwear in Coquette enables the use of tights and socks with lace or embroidery.
The hairstyles can be very varied, and it is possible to use them with both loose and collected hair. However, there is an element whose presence refers directly to the Coquette Aesthetic; the bow to hold the hair.
