If TikTok is the leading relationship in your social love life, then no doubt you're already feeling those butterflies for the platform's trending coquette aesthetic (it's only had a mere 7 billion views!) Blushing yet? Because ngl, we are almost past that stage.

The term "coquette" describes a "flirtatious woman" — which translates breathtakingly at home into blushing pastel shades, heirloom details, pretty florals, and delicate layers, all tied up with a luxe pearl string of vintage romanticism. Think of Coquette as the Marie Antoinette, night owl cousin of the wholesome, countryside-kinda obsessed aesthetic if it helps. 

Light one of your best candles for the perfect ambiance, and you've nailed your very own modern-day period drama (no need for a Simon Basset when you've got such a gorgeous love nest to tick all the boxes).
