5 Outfit Ideas Inspired by TikTok's #Dreamcore Aesthetic

Welcome to the eerie, nostalgic side of the internet.

If you’ve ever explored the #dreamcoare hashtag on TikTok, which boasts over 469 million views on the social media app, you’d probably have experienced a strange, uneasy feeling and a comforting sense of nostalgia at the same time. Defined as “an aesthetic that is based around bizarre imagery and objects,” dreamcore visuals often evoke an eerie mood from scenes that you vaguely remember seeing in your childhood or in a random dream. For our latest style guide, we take inspiration from this viral trend. From the beach to a dollhouse, go on an imaginary excursion with us to destinations sitting somewhere deep inside our memories.

Keep scrolling for five outfit ideas inspired by the dreamcore aesthetic while listening to our themed playlist on Spotify.

A Walk on the Beach

Our dreamcore-inspired style guide opens with a walk on an empty beach at dusk. To match the pink skies, put on a romantic pink tulle dress by Molly Goddard and style it with MISBHV’s pearl choker. Keep your hair up with Emi Jay’s turquoise clip and complete the look with Maison Margiela’s Tabi Mary Jane flats with matching socks.

Playground Fun

Relive your childhood with a trip to the playground. For this look, we’re styling a crochet vest top by Sea New York, layered atop GANNI’s asymmetrical shirt, with a simple mini skirt by The Attico. HURJABOY’s rose print tights and All Precious beaded necklace add a fun touch to this ensemble, while Crocs’ translucent clogs round out the fit.

Midnight Stroll

Go on late-night walks on sleepless summer nights. To highlight the dreamcore aesthetic, we’re playing around with the abstract patterns found on Acne Studios’ knit pullover and Missoni x Palm Angels’ pants. Keep your look balanced with staple items such as black Reebok Beatniks, Pleasures’ logo hat and JW Anderson’s mini Cap bag.

Dream Dollhouse

Ever dream about living inside your childhood dollhouse? Here, we’re pairing a rosy pink maxi skirt with a frilled crop top by Praying. Finish off the look with tights featuring a text print and a pair of chunky heels, like our pick from Nodaleto.

Cotton Candy Clouds

Taking inspiration from pastel, cotton candy-like clouds, this look is all about shades of pink and purple. We’re styling Heaven by Marc Jacobs’ Scribblez Sweater and Pleated Dress with mismatched plaid socks by Collina Strada and BY FAR’s shoulder bag, and finishing off with platform wedge sandals by Marni.
