Yankeecore is the romanticization of New England. New England is a region comprising six states in the northeastern United States: Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. It centers on coastal-northeastern life. Some themes associated are maritime related landscapes and activities, New England famous foods, and a unique charm that brings about a cozy feeling.
New Englanders typically prefer a classic, timeless and preppy look. Conservative styles and colors are the go-to.
Some staples of New England fashion include:
- Dark and light denim
- White jeans
- Trench coats
- Button-down shirts
Earth tones and muted colors are the typical choice for this aesthetic.
Accessories are kept simple and don't distract from the rest of the outfit. Sunglasses, a belt, and simple jewelry are all you need.
Layering is another New England trend that is used, especially during chillier months.
