its literally what everybody on this board strives towards
it stopped being anti-fashion and cool and just got absorbed by trendhoppers and the like and has now morphed into marc-demarco-core garbage
basically if your fit is garbage or boring or uninteresting you can slap the big ol label "norm-core" and voila you are now impervious to any criticism

He's right though. Normcore was doomed from the start imo because it's stated goals were to dress in a way that is unpretentious and "normal", yet every normcore fit looked like Seinfeld cosplay. If people actually want to dress "normal" they'd do all their shopping at Kohl's and Walmart. They'd try to look like average people now, not average people from 20 years ago.
Normcore just ended up splintering into mac demarco copycats and a few 90's retro trends like light wash denim and high waisted pants becoming popular.

I tried to push normcore to an extreme. Now i just look like a literal poor person.

My campus bookstore has posters advertising pastel "dad hats." That's what happened to normcore. It's been absorbed into the ever growing clothing arsenal of basic white girls. It's happening to every trend that's at all accessible. And faster and faster these days. I blame Instagram. But I'm sure it's more complex than that.

Yeah it's annoying. The best solution is just dress in shit that basic white girls will probably never wear. So really weird high fashion stuff basically. Or just move to an area with a lot of old people that's not fashion oriented.

>> No.12027277

high fashion is literally what white girls will eventually wear, maybe not after a few years though, when rich white girls get tired of it after a few years
. wear extremely traditional clothing from african/ indigenous people or aboriginal. not asian cuz theyre "cool" to white people. other stuff white girls wont wear that shit.

>What's your favorite typeface? The default one in Word? That's Normcore. Where d'you get that shirt? Gap? That's hardcore Normcore. Last gig you saw? Coldplay? Damn, you are the embodiment of Normcore... are you an accountant? In the past, if your stand-out feature was the ability to blend in, you would be considered by hipsters and fashionistas to be criminally uncool. However, hipsters have once again turned convention on its head, embraced the mundane and christened it Normcore. So where previously you were sneered at for your slacks and baggy sweaters, you're now exalted as a shining light of the non-descript. If all this ordinariness feels a little confusing and overwhelming, don't panic because help is at hand. "This is Normcore" offers advice for aspiring Norms, explaining how to be normal and the icons and idols of an average Normcore aficionado. Soon you'll be joining the rest of the Norms in rocking a sweater vest with aplomb, reading Dan Brown novels and pumping out the latest Michael Bublé track on a regular basis.

normalcore has a lot of layers.

on the surface, it's whites/asians responding to black people dressing crazy.

Deeper than that, we have people standing out by dressing average. It's crazy that it works so well.

Even deeper than that: it's cheap fashion. 20 bucks at a goodwill is all you need to rock this look. Your mom probably has a closet full of fanny packs and dad hats. Cheap fashion always blows up and then richfags spend hundreds of dollars trying to imitate it.

We will probably see normalcore ramp up in springtime, lots of chicks will be trying to hide their muffintops in april and high waisted denim is a founding tenet of normalcore.

This style isn't going to go anywhere, but we are about to hit the event horizon of fashion. Anything will be stylish as long as it's put together. Loud. quiet. DIY or designer.
