You’ve probably seen someone rocking a coquette ‘fit on campus or at a party: a lacy, pastel-colored dress, bows in their hair, frilly socks, pearls, and rosettes. The TikTok-famous aesthetic evokes softness, romance (that often overlaps with flirtiness), and a longing for bygone eras — like Bridgerton meets Lana Del Rey. And it isn’t just popular in the fashion world; the coquette look is also a major home decor vibe. 

Thankfully, you don’t have to spend a pretty penny to create a pretty dorm room. Here are six budget-friendly decor pieces that, all combined, will give your room a coquettish look for less than $200.

Ensure your room is the cat’s meow with this fun feline tapestry. Hang it over your bed, behind your desk, or any other blank wall space that could use a cutesy touch of coquettishness.

Pretend you’re an old-timey aristocrat getting ready for a ball with this delicate pink tabletop mirror. The heart-shaped, lace-inspired design will give any space a sense of fancy whimsy — all for under $10.

With this product, the coquettishness is in the details. At first glance, this white duvet cover set, which includes a queen duvet cover and two queen pillowcases, is classic and simple. But when you look closer at each piece’s edges, you see the hallmarks of this aesthetic: ruffles and bows.

Sophistication plays a key role in the coquette look, and what’s more sophisticated than a pearl jewelry moment? Channel that look with this iridescent, pearl-inspired lamp — which comes with a faux silk drum shade for an extra-elegant effect.

Pastel pink and frills come together in this playful yet oh-so-cozy throw blanket. Drape it over your pure white duvet cover for an eye-catching contrast, or dangle it over your desk chair to provide an extra touch of softness while you get your homework done.

There’s a reason the viral phrase “so Lana Del Rey vinyl” is used on TikTok in conjunction with the coquette aesthetic. (I know, the internet may have gotten too niche.) The moody, sultry songstress captures the coquette vibe with her style and songs, so incorporate both into your room as you play her record — here’s an inexpensive record player that fits the look — and hang up the album cover like the piece of art it truly is.
