Fashion Forecast’s Five: Normcore Florals

[box_light]Fashion Forecast’s Five: Normcore Florals[/box_light]

“Normcore” is an actively proliferating term that acts as both fashion and social commentary, acknowledging the would-be casual and mediocre as a sub-style movement. Whatever the origins, the neologism sheds light on the fact that, most of the time, we’d prefer to be lumpier, disaffected versions of ourselves. For this round of May flower fashion, take it easy, bring on the basics and forget the fops, you dandies.

Put a Cap on It

Let’s not kid ourselves: Unless you were born with a high crown, lids will wilt you like a weed.

DO

Hand it over

For a season-less carryall, opt for flowers that are more symmetrical, namely circular ones; tropical blossoms tend to be resort-esque.

DARE

Full Throttle

If you’ve got it, flaunt it. For pyjama-after-hours affairs, opt for a sculpted, barely tailored silhouette. For the Sir-Mixalot special, work in ratios: one part large print, two parts small and clustered and one part complementary color to turn the party out.
