Whether it’s bow tie detailed bath sets, gift boxes, makeup pouches, or perhaps whimsy decor objects and figurines, this coquette trend is something you won’t be able to resist. 

What Is The Coquette Aesthetic? 

The literal translation of coquette means ‘a flirtatious woman’. However, after fashion doing what it does best, the trend refers to embracing all things ‘girlie’. From soft pastels, tiny ribbon details, and flirty ruffles, the coquette aesthetic is the epitome of feminine luxe with a playful twist that allows people to just have fun with the look. And when it comes to coquette home decor, it’s no different. 

The coquette aesthetic within interior design is meant to show off the delicate allure of home decor. Whether it is softly hued curtains, embroidered cushion covers, scalloped dinnerware, or bow-detailed wall decor, every factor must resemble the raw, delicate romance yet youthful exuberance women have mastered to balance.
