Clothes in the Fairycore aesthetics

Clothes are made up of ethereal flowy materials in predominantly loose silhouettes with a hint of mystery and imagination thrown in for good measure. 

Sheer fabrics, billowing silhouettes – these are all included in the magical style of a fairycore wardrobe. If you’ve ever seen a fairy in a movie, a photograph, or a book, you’re familiar with the light and airy, voluminous dresses that delicately envelop their bodies. The majority of these gowns are constructed of sheer fabrics like chiffon or lace. Ruffles with floral or glitter stitching are common around the shoulders. You can look out for nature-inspired attire.

Vintage-inspired edgy corsets are very popular with the people following this fashion style

Colors of the Fairiecore aesthetic style

The fairly core color pallet is fairly bright compared to many other aesthetics, and it can include practically any color, albeit pastel tones are most typically utilized. Pale green, pastel blue/pink/yellow, or milk-white are all excellent choices. Earthy tones (that are nonetheless joyful and vibrant), iridescent hues, soft grays and dusty pinks are also used.

Jewel tones like amethyst, sapphire, and emerald are also sometimes used.


Ribbons, moonstone rings, long necklaces, and golden bracelets are examples of  accessories used in this aesthetic style.

Half-up, half-down, or braided hairstyles are worn. Messy buns or curls with bows are two fairly core hairstyles.

At the end of the day, you should end up looking like a fairy, minus the wings and the magic.

You can adopt this to the modern style with floral printed dresses in lightweight fabrics like chiffon in soft colors or frilly tops or dresses combined with beaded jewelery
