Normcore

Normcore
Happy Friday babes! Amongst the many things I have on my wish/want/lust list you are looking at one of the top things I MUST add to my wardrobe. That's right my next purchase will be this spiffy pair of black and white Nike Roshe Run. Retailed at about $75.00 a pop they are thee sneaker every fashion person should own. Male or female. They are stylish, sleek, light, and comfy. They also allow you to pull off the famous normcore look.

What is normcore? *sigh* Long story short it is not trying to look fashionable in a fashionable way. If that makes sense. Geared more toward an updated 90s fashion, it includes basic colors and gives off a sophisticated soccer mom look. I am so addicted to this fashion trend it's not funny. I find myself buying a crap load of plain crew neck teens and shopping for vintage jeans at the thrift store. My dream look right now for these shoes is this. Mock neck top, black pants, and an over sized ivory jacket. A dark lip will set it off to give you a stylish effortless look.. look. How should you wear your hair... however you want messy bun, slicked back pony. It all depends how stylish or playful you want to be.

Shop this look:




Ways to shop normcore.

  • Plain t shirts- This include tanks, boyfriends, and crew neck 
  • Over sized destroyed jeans- Save some money and DIY (video coming)  
  • Sleek sneaks- Chucks, Adidas superstars, New balance, preferably 574 Core (try to stick to neutral colors) 
  • Over sized sweaters and jackets (mid length and long are perfect)
  • Google "normcore", "normcore fashion", "normcore street style" and be inspired
  • Be Basic- Black, white, grey, and denim is the perfect color scheme  
  • Hit thrift stores- tons of normcore approved stuff there
Making my dreams come true, 
Ash

    1. Bree! Trust me I totally understand where you're coming from with this.. my advice is buy solid pieces that you can wear over and over again. I've been into buying more basic pieces .. tees, pencil skirts, and jeans... for heels try shoedazzle or just fab. Great shoes for low prices. Hope that helps :)

  5. I think that it'll look really good on you, since you give off the cool vibe!
    I've tried it on myself, and I seriously looked like a suburban mom (well, I am one, but holy-bejeezus!). :-P
