LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Customized Normcore

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Normcore is the biggest thing in fashion right now. The Guardian defines Normcore as “coolness that opts into sameness,” which is a general attitude of fitting in rather than standing out.

Geared up in a graphic jersey shirt, loose fit trousers with cuffed hems and a pair of Nike sneakers, this Fashionisto perfectly illustrates his understanding of Normcore through his look. He doesn’t wear any eye-popping elements to strive for a difference. The relaxing and casual style is the new way of being cool.

The key of acing a Normcore look is embracing sameness deliberately. A UNIQLO T-shirt, a pair of khaki pants and a pair of New Balance sneakers make up a standard Normcore look. But think about putting your personality in your outfit. If you are a fan of colors, a pair of fun colored sneakers is right up your alley.

Taking his look as an example, his polka-dot socks and purple textured sneakers show his love of vivid and fresh patterns. If you are a fan of minimalism, a fine-cut basic T-shirt will satisfy your need. The contemporary brands, such as Alexander Wang and 3.1 Philip Lim, have many great choices. Clad in a pair of leather Birkenstocks, you pure head-to-toe Normcore look is finished.

Normcore is about being cozy and modest. It makes us take a rest from being distinctive and go back to a time before we growing up. Simply dressing up in a distinctive way doesn’t make you look stylish. Getting decked out in clothes that show your life attitude and personality is the real secret of staying chic.

Hint: To imitate his look, you can try a graphic jersey top, a pair of fit trousers and sneakers that showing your personality.
