Normcore is an emerging cultural trend focusing on "coolness that opts into sameness." ... The new term refers to understated, nondescript style. It encompasses the desire to fit in rather than stand out.
Any of you guys sporting normcore?
Is it like whatever I find in my closet -- wow this is fashion
"New York trend agency ‘K Hole’ coined the term ‘normcore’ in 2013, "
Isn't any trend an attempt to fit in?
or, if everyone is "trying", the only way to stand out is by not "trying"
it's more like 90s normal, it's been around for longer than 2014
like your dad wearing a generic sweatshirt and some new balance sneakers
The hipster look has become part of regular fashion now, so the hipsters need something new to be 'cool'. I'm guessing they're all gonna have a shave too.

I never thought about it as an "understated, nondescript style" for the sake of being understated and nondescript. I just like stuff that isn't too trendy, that's still going to be wearable and stylish a few years in the future. Simple oxford button downs, good jeans, heather gray t-shirts, and some good shoes are all I need.
Classic or timeless is always in style.
It took people this long to realize that trends die and you should not try so hard?
Punches for having to have a special word for everything.
And a combat boot to the testicles for using "-core".
And carpet bomb the offices of the 'trend agency' specialising in complete and utter fucking drivel. And respect for making a living out of it. Sigh...
