My interpretation of Normcore: Not trying too hard to look good and make others look at you, yet still looking good making them do it anyway. Doesn't make sense, does it. :)

I thnk Thant nor core is oxymoronic. It strives to go against the trends but itself is a trend. The outfits still come off as trendy to me. They are basically getting fashion inspiration from the generation before us.

I think, too much effort is put in to "normcore". I've seen at my boutique, girls spend hours to find something that looks effortless...

No no no, you guys have it all wrong. Normcore isn't taking away self expression or trying to limit you to a bare minimum of mundane fashion. It's celebrating the unsung staples that have made modern fashion what it is. It puts the classics on a pedestal and pays homage to them in an ironically purist fashion: head-to-toe ensemble that's as timeless as style itself. When do you ever truly see [...

[...]a basic, well crafted tennis shoe. Or a simple denim jacket, or white button up. These are perfect examples of the quintessential classic that has become the canvas and muse, molded and evolved by different designers and fabricators over the course of time. Stripping all those layers away and taking the garment for what it is and was meant to be is taking fashion to an entirely new level [...

[...] appreciation. Going back to basics is appreciating, how monsieur Saint Laurent would put it, eternal style.

I think t those simply-designed sneakers makes it easy to put a chic outfit together. And yes, I believe in taking care of my feet. :)

This isn't really for me. What I like about fashion is that it is a form of self-expression. Why would I want to take that away?
