Spice Up Your Summer Wardrobe With The ‘Blokette’ Core

Get ready for summer with the playful and whimsical blokette core trend

As summer approaches, it’s time to inject some playful energy into your summer wardrobe. Enter the “blokette” — bloke and coquette — core fashion trend, a fascinating new look that combines vintage athletic streetwear style and ballet core girly aesthetic. 


What is ‘blokette’ core?

The trend has been popularised through social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram since late 2022. Drawing inspiration from coquette, blokecore, and balletcore, ‘blokette’ is a mix-and-match collision that breaks down traditional gender norms and creates a unique fashion perspective by interpreting sports styles from a young girl’s point of view. Whether it’s gender-neutral or feminine, it’s all about embracing nostalgia while exuding a sense of fun and individuality.

Besides sweatshirts and ribbon details mix and match, the use of ambient pieces like knee-high socks, hair bands and pleated skirts mixed and matched adds even more interest and layers to the overall look.
