Commonly known as Twilightcore or Elena Gilbert core, 2000's Autumn is an aesthetic that rose to prominence in Autumn 2021 on TikTok. The trend is primarily focused on the fashion of the late 2000's, specifically emulating Bella Swan from the Twilight Franchise and Elena Gilbert from The Vampire Diaries. It also touches on The Gilmore Girls (2000).


During the COVID-19 pandemic of Autumn 2021, the app TikTok experienced a Twilight renaissance. It might seem unusual at first glance, but nostalgia is quite strong in this generation, and combined with pop culture's "20 year rule," we revived the late 2000s-- back when the biggest problems in our lives was whether we were Team Edward or Team Jacob.

Nostalgia, however, is only one of the factors that ushered in 2000s Autumn. A combination of y2k fashion returning, Netflix introducing the Twilight franchise to their platform, the weather progressing into winter, and the aforementioned nostalgia coincided perfectly and, like the Big Bang, created what we now know as Twilightcore.


2000's Autumn has muted colors and dark hues. The aesthetic is meant to have romanticized overcast scenes and desaturated clothing. This aesthetic is usually based in suburban neighborhoods and schools or deep in forests.


The fashion for Twilightcore/Elena Gilbert core is based on the Twilight series, the Vampire Diaries, and the Gilmore Girls series.
