Normcore just says no to mix matching prints, bright colors, and animal prints! According to Normcore, the 90’s are back and Jerry Seinfeld is their fashion icon. New York Magazine says that it exudes an attitude that embraces uniformity and manifests itself in “ardently ordinary clothes. Mall clothes. Blank clothes. Birkenstocks and socks – fashion meets comfort!

Fashion trends tend to recycle every 20 years, so normcore is right on track with making a comeback. Do you think it’s here to stay? Hipsters are embracing normcore as a way to make the uncool, cool. Isn’t normcore being a trend a little bit of a contradiction? Oh well, if you are a fan of normcore, you may want to raid your dad’s closet, or possibly make a trip to the thrift store for a really trendy and affordable wardrobe. You think we are kidding? Just check out #normcore on twitter, this is not a joke! If you have stock in Lands End, it is a good day for you!
