Is Kylie Jenner finally entering her cottagecore era?

2016 was primetime for Kylie Jenner, influencing millions of women to take selfies, dye their hair blue, and enhance their lips with her iconic products. But the King Kylie era had its reign, as did her years of Fashion Nova 'fits – it's time for cottagecore now.

The Kardashians and Jenners have overdone it with BBL fashion, so imagine our shock when Kylie fully embraced the dreamy, rural Europa look. Yesterday, the 26-year-old stunned in a sleeveless white corset dress while having a picnic on farmland.

What Is “Cottagecore?”

Internet aesthetics are taking over social media, cottagecore being one of them, a term popularized by young women that encompasses the idyllic, rural European lifestyle. Think Snow White or the very girly version of The Lord of the Rings' Hobbiton. The concept focuses on cultivating a more sustainable and simple way of living that is often rooted in traditional values. The dresses tied to this picture are typically maxi-length, beautiful, and flowery.

We've recently seen a shift in celebrities from wearing trendy clothes to elegant garments. Sofia Richie went viral this year because of her significant glow-up, going from girl-next-door to "old money" in just a few years. The internet's reaction to her transformation proves that the girls are hungry for classic beauty rather than fads.

So, is Kylie Jenner finally changing her vibe up, too?

Considering her latest Instagram Story featured her in a black latex top and tight pants (and the fact that the Kardashians and Jenners rely heavily on their sex appeal for profit), probably not. It wouldn't be a terrible idea if she changed her wardrobe, though. The rebrand would make her the "black sheep" of her family in terms of style, so it may bring her more attention – she'd also influence more young women to tap into their femininity and abandon fast fashion trends.

Just look at what happened when photos of Kim Kardashian wearing modest Americana dresses circulated online; she trended for weeks because her garments were such a huge contrast to her usual style. Regardless, the corset dress and farmland aesthetics we saw with Kylie Jenner was a nice change for once.
