Trashcore is an aesthetic based around decaying, abandoned buildings and general garbage. Anything old, poorly made, broken, or just generally gross and probably not safe to be around could probably qualify as trashcore.
Common visuals associated with Trashcore are decaying/decayed buildings, trash, moldy scenery, old antiques, vintage artworks, and anything that could generally be considered trashy, destroyed, or hideous. It can also feature animals commonly associated with trash (such as raccoons, opossum, badgers, rats, bears, and any other sort of animal that might be caught mulling around in people's trash) doing their thing in civilization.
Trashcore fashion is very similar to crustpunk. There isn't a sense of anarchy to trashcore, but ripped clothes that are either homemade or from the thrift shop are common. T-shirts with doodles or weird phrases scribbled on with marker is something you'll see in Trashcore. You'll also see a lot of references to opossums, rats, raccoons, and other animals who seem to thrive in urban and suburban settings. It can also incorporate things such as ribbons, pearls, corsets, feathers, rosaries, discolored lace, worn-out silk, or anything that, many years ago, would've been considered in fashion but have been so worn down by time that it can't even be salvaged in even a "Vintage"-inspired aesthetic.
