The normcore trend was one of the biggest styles from 2014; involving everything from Céline-inspired clothes, minimalist dressing, and even saw the return of Birkenstocks.
It might be 2015, but this trend won’t be going anywhere for the rest of the summer. Incorporate some of the hottest normcore trends into your wardrobe with our easy guide below.
Birkenstocks, flat sandals, slides, and trainers were one of the biggest shoe trends of 2014. Anything flat and comfortable became an essential, and we’re finally glad that comfort is now fashionable! A pair of black and white trainers are the easiest way to make this trend part of your wardrobe.
If weather permits, an oversized coat adds the finishing touch to any type of outfit. Throw it over a playsuit, denim jeans, a little black dress, or even a pair of cropped trousers. Stick to basic tones of black, white, and neutrals which are easy to chop and change with various outfits.
Bring a little grunge to any outfit by throwing on a plaid shirt over the top. This effortless look is best if you’re living in a colder climate, but you can always tie it around the waist if the weather warms up.
A pair of cropped trousers are the ultimate way to take your outfit from day to night. Change sneakers or slides to a pair of (comfortable heels), and an elegant clutch or tote bag.
An oversized sloppy-joe or sweatshirt is a winter essential, and oh-so affordable at the same time! Grey marl is a popular choice for both men and women who want to keep their colour palette minimal at best.
So there you have it – an introductory guide to the normcore trend. While it isn’t for everyone, there are a few great pieces that we could all add into our wardrobe!
