this is basically just 90s retro, right? i've embraced a neo-grunge thing recently, involving faded ripped jeans and plaid shirts or wooly sweaters with workboots but everything is fairly "fitted", which brings it up to the present day i think and makes it not normcore. when it rains i wear a jacket from l.l. bean which is pretty normcore. in college i was all about this hat from bass pro shop. at a bar in copenhagen this really fashionable danish woman kept trying to buy it from me. this was 2010; she must have been proto-normcore. maybe i was too.
what about you? do you find beauty in bland, suburban fashion staples and try to incorporate them into your wardrobe? or do you try to dress in a way that is deliberately nondescript so that your outfit isn't the first thing people notice about you? if the latter, doesn't everyone do this? why do we need a word for this?
