If you’re familiar with the Danish term “hygge,” you know the aesthetic prioritizes creating a cozy warm atmosphere while enjoying the simple things in life. Hygge became popular in the United States in 2016 but slowly started to be replaced with the Y2K trends revival. Now five years later, there’s a new viral aesthetic, and it’s called cabincore, and of course, it originated on TikTok where #cabincore already has 32.4 million views.
Hygge walked so our Gen Z’ers cabincore could run. The new age aesthetic follows many of the same characteristics that hygge represents: ease of life, comfort, and coziness. What makes cabincore different than hygge, you ask? The core aesthetic focuses heavily on fashion, whereas the latter is centered around lifestyle and home. During the pandemic, people flocked to nature to social distance and escape their tiny city apartments, and cabincore proves that nature is still very much in. Poster women of the cabin trend are undoubtedly the Hadid sisters on their Pennsylvania farm living their best cozy country life. The sisters, who are mostly based in New York City, embody the trend so much when they get away from the bustle and head to the farm that Bella Hadid’s recent shoot for The Pop Magazine was oh-so cabincore inspired.
To make things simple, cabincore is social media’s answer to cottagecore for the chilly winter months when you want to stay bundled up at home. Lush prairies, ruffle Batsheva dresses, and embroidered lace that we loved and gushed about over the summer are traded for snowy Airbnb cabins upstate, or Vermont dressed in oversized wool sweaters in hues of deep browns, burnt orange, green, etc. near the fire — of course, with a hot chocolate in hand.
