Well, maybe that cover turned out to be like a horror movie, and not so normcore, but it definitely looks like what normcore feels to me. A term, that i came to discover just a while ago.
Normcore is a unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious, average-looking clothing. The term combines the words "normal" and "hardcore", and was coined by K-Hole, a trend forecasting group. Normcore wearers are people who do not wish to distinguish themselves from others by their clothing [....]
Normcore clothes include everyday items of casual wear such as t-shirts, hoodies, short-sleeved shirts, jeans and chino pants, but not items such as neckties or blouses. These clothes are worn by men and women alike, making normcore a unisex style. via Wikipedia
The black & white, basic, simple, chic as we call it, has a term. And honestly, i wasn't excite to hear how strict it is. I never really put a label on my style. Usually just went with what i simply liked. But it's kinda fascinating discovering that there is an actual term for what you basically like to wear, and that has been so in right now.
Although in the hardcore normcore phases i feel it's not something i would be able to wear, most of the times, i find appealing and yes, sexy. Not in the high heels, short dress sexy - although we've seen normcore versions of that too - but in a strong, feminine way. One of my favourite normcore style bloggers, would be Kaitlyn where you can see her glorious style all over Pinterest.
Some, find it an ugly trend. But as you and i know, it can be chic, easy to maintain, affordable since you only have basics and play with accessories. On top of everything, it feels clean. Something as a designer i value a lot. Having a full brain with colours, ideas and type, i like keeping my pallet simple. As with everything, incorporating your character to your style / or trend if you call it, makes it more personal and close to who you are.
oddly, i wasn't able to track any of the sources, but i'm providing you with
