Described by some as the “anti-fashion”, Normcore is the anti-trend that is currently trending. It’s everything fashion isn’t supposed to be; it’s boring, unidentifiable (except for the occasion Adidas or New Balance), and basic. We welcome back Gap basics, Levis, Adidas sandals (I know, I KNOW), white tees, white sneakers, and every shade of neutral. Think every cast member of Friends and 90210…again, I know. Unbeknownst to me, I’ve been a dedicated follower of this trend for years. As a wardrobe stylist, I do an insane amount of schlepping, bending, and running on set. I’ve created a uniform for myself that makes doing those things easier and it’s goes like this.
Non-descript tank top (black or striped), check.
Oversized blazer or cardigan, check.
Boyfriend jeans, check.
Chuck Taylor’s, check.
Don’t get me wrong, I like my basics but I love my vintage pieces way more. I think I’ll stick with fashion as a way to express oneself but I have to admit, dressing like the norm isn’t so bad after all.
