I don’t like starting an article with something such as ”Coquette bow is a big TikTok Trend.” I have a deep perception that aesthetics are not just a trend, but a visual representation of archetypal, visual patterns, with universal meanings that are timeless, and that help us find the things we truly love.

I have also written a post about the coquette aesthetic, and my aesthetic guides are all about explaining the visual meanings of the moods you will evoke by channeling an aesthetic in your outfit, in your house, or practicing activities and having a routine that feeds your brain towards the meaning of that visual aesthetic.

The Coquette aesthetic depicts a cute and feminine personality and soft style, but it is not as childlike as the kawaii, dolette, or soft girl aesthetic. The Parisian, light academia influence here makes this aesthetic evoke a French chic element of Classic French-Greek sophistication that is not seen in the other girly-cute aesthetics.

Styling With a Coquette Bow


The coquette fashion style’s main elements are the cute soft pink or black bows and ribbons. From the coquette room decor to the aesthetic dresses and outfits, the bow is there when the goal is to express the coquette core side of you.

The symbolic influence of the coquette bow


The cute satin bow and ribbons are a prominent, distinctive feature in the coquette style. They enhance the flirtatious and charming classic French chic stereotype in people’s culture and imagination.

When combined with frills and ruffles, coquette bows form the perfect whimsy feminine vibes of the coquette fashion. If you want a more Classic Frenchie and less cute soft girlish aspect to the coquette style, mix the bows with vintage-inspired hats and gloves and go for the Parisian chic black and beige palette.
