Fairycore Outfit Ideas For An Everyday Wear (Minus The Wings!)

Fairycore Outfits: “I want a garden filled with strawberries and an entire field of flowers.”  

This sums up the aesthetic of the fairycore.  

A subsection of cottagecore fashion, fairycore outfits are also gaining a fair amount of TikTok popularity. To begin with, ethereal fashion is quite on point now, especially after the popularity of Mermaid Core upon the release of the action “Little Mermaid.” it is only fitting that we are taking inspiration from our favorite fairytales.  

Taking all the fantasy in mind we are now bringing the vintage rural aesthetic to it. Hence, bringing you a new aesthetic called fairycore!  

It is beautiful, and it is ethereal, to say the least!  

However, when it comes to incorporating them into your everyday life, now that is the challenge!  

Not so much if you know the right pairing that can make your fairycore outfits. Afterall, you do not always need to go full cosplay to get the look.  

What is the Fairycore Aesthetics?  

Inspired by the ethereal folklore creature, fairycore outfits signify everything colorful, with earthy tones. But, with magical vibrancy from time to time through flashes of colors like purple, and blue.  

A fairycore fashion is a subsection of fairycore outfits. However, I do strongly believe that someone who is in love with this form of aesthetic is also in love with the aesthetic, and not just the outfits.  

I have often seen fashionistas who adore this aesthetic have a symbol of the same in their home decor, the books they read, and the movies they watch.  

So, if you are one of them (…or planning to be one), you have reached the right place. In this excerpt below, I will be giving you some of the fashion elements that you will need to incorporate to get that perfect fairycore outfit.  

Must Haves for Your Fairycore Outfit  

So, without any further ado, let’s get into the must haves in your wardrobe. However, do not go about buying new clothes for no reason. So why not get some of the best combination and versatility with just a few pairs of clothes.  

1. Flowey Asymmetrical Skirt  

Whether it is an asymmetrical skirt or a satin-A-line – mermaid skirt in your favorite color, they are enough to bring out the fairycore fanatic in you.  

However, these type of pleated or pirate skirts are also something loved by cottagecore fashion lovers. Therefore, to make it more folklore, we would suggest pairing it with something with a more ethereal build.  

2. Bell Sleeve Tops  

This brings us to our next pick!  

There could be nothing that could complete your fairy core outfit more than a simple bell sleeve top.  

Now, there are a few bell sleeve tops which you can get on the fashion shelves of top brands. However, if you want the magical kind, we suggest looking for something in stores like Etsy or eBay.  

Here are some of your fairycore outfit “keywords.”  

Colorful mesh bell-sleeved tops.  

Crop bell-sleeved tops.  

Front tie bell-sleeved tops.  

You can pair these with a skirt or another bottom clothing item.  

3. Colorful Pants  

Talking about other bottom halves, if you are a fan of fairycore outfits, you must not stay away from vibrancy.  

That would be a total oxymoron, a fairy who doesn’t like colors!  

It is okay if you are not a fan of colors like baby pink, and electric blue. But you can always pick muted, or dusty earthy tones which are suited to your taste (…or to your skin tone based on color theory).  

You can easily switch your denim with colored pants of brown, terracotta, and olive green. However, if that is too much of a drastic change for your wardrobe, you can always take it one step at a time.  

How about sewing or simply iron-pressing some tiny fairycore detailing to the denim you already own?  

For example, adding some floral patterns or woodland creatures like fairies and cute mushrooms? This will give you the liberty to experiment without completely changing your wardrobe.  

4. Crochet Tops  

If f you want an easy hack to make your outfit match the aesthetic, you can add a crochet top. No matter what you are wearing underneath or over, this will instantly freshen up your outfit, and give it that magical touch.  

You can also go for a crochet front tie cardigan or even a crochet bag if you just want to carry that part of your aesthetic with you!  

5. Soft Dreamy Dresses 

If you are confused with that certain description, then let me simplify it for you!  

A soft dreamy dress is a dream fairycore outfit, and a must have in your closet. So, how can you pick a dreamy dress?  

Here are some of the common keywords you should be looking for when searching for these outfits online.  

Organza material: This is a soft, lightweight material that gives that flowy illusion.  

Puffy sleeves/bottom: Puffy sleeves and skirts (mini or midi) are other staples of Fairycore.  

Maxi dress with Flowy skirt: Whenever you are picking sun dresses for your summer outfit, look for midi or mini dresses that have a flowy skirt rather than a body-hugging one.  

Earthy Tones: Some of the earthy tones which are a fan favorite for someone in love of fairycore & cottagecore are, sage green, army green, olive green, mustard yellow, dusty pink, terracotta red, maroon. If you want to find more color theory, look through some other subsection of this aesthetic; goblin core, farm grunge core, witch core, angel core, etc.  

Patterns & Textures: Mesh, lace, and net are common. However, other than that, you can look through ombre colors, gradients, and colorful crochets.  

If you want your fairycore outfit to come to life, next time look for these whenever you are thrifting offline or scrolling through Etsy.  

6. Embroidered Lace & Net Top  

Coming back to top styles, if you want to go for an “extra” fairycore look, you should opt for the full lace and net look.   

Look for turtleneck tops (preferably in light colors, or you can go for darker tones if you are a fan of which core as well). These are not your regular turtlenecks. There is a detailed lace work around your neck, a sheer net around your chest, and small lace details here and there.  

This would be the perfect evening look.  

You can pair this top with an embroidered maxi or midi skirt or even denim jeans.   

If you are not a fan of lace, a flowy long sleeved ruffled blouse, with rounded collar can also help give you the same look.  

7. Corset Tops  

These are not your regular corsets which doesn’t allow you breathing space. Rather they are beautifully sewn corsets with earthy details.  

You can pair it with any bottom outfit (…skirt, shorts, dungarees, and colorful pants).  

Look for corsets that have some bone structure in them. This will give your figure a flattering look.  

Shoes for your Fairycore Outfit  

When it comes to shoes, you do not need a whole closet. A few signature pairs should be enough!  

Brown Lace Shoes  

It doesn’t get more fairycore than traipsing through woods in a maxi dress and brown lace boots.  

Mary Janes  

They are dainty and can be perfectly paired with any of the above-mentioned fairycore dresses. Go for colors like ivory white, baby pink, or black. An extra bonus would be if you could find some with lace detailing.  

Colorful Canvas  

This is your chance to add some flash of colors to your plain canvas. If you cannot find one with fairycore details, why not make it a DIY project. You can paint mushrooms, dandelions, butterflies or any nature element on a plain white canvas.  

Magical Must-Have Accessories for Your Fairycore Outfits

You can opt for a simple, dainty headband with small flowers or go all out with a full-on blooming crown.  

2. Delicate Jewelry  

Fairycore style is all about embracing delicate and dainty pieces when it comes to jewelry. Opt for intricate designs, such as floral charms, pearl and gold layered necklaces, or butterflies, to add an ethereal touch to your outfit.   

You can mix and match different pieces for a more eclectic look or stick to one statement piece, like a charm bracelet or necklace.  

3. Lace Gloves  

Lace gloves are not only elegant but also add an element of vintage charm to any fairycore outfit.   

They can be worn with long, flowy dresses as well as cropped tops and skirts to add texture and intricacy to your fairycore outfit.

Tulle socks are another cute addition to any fairycore look.  

They come in various colors and patterns, adding a pop of whimsy while still being practical and comfortable to wear with any type of shoe.
