As fashion trends from the past continue to influence the present, an all-new (yet all-old) fashion movement has arisen: “Normcore,” or “the new normal.” The trend, driven by comfort-seekers, taps into the fashion scene from the late 80s and early 90s, marking the return of elastic-waist sweatpants, plain white undershirts and graphic sweatshirts. According to fashion experts, it represents a quest for freedom and simplicity in one's dress; no longer wanting to be defined by one specific style.
This desire for individuality has contributed to the rise of “Normcorers,” or people who refuse to fit into a pre-determined mold. The trend has also resulted in a renewed sense of nostalgia, as people attempt to rediscover the styles they grew up wearing.
As we consider this trend—with its vintage flair, obsession with comfort and simple style—we love seeing our Professional clog in the Normcore mix. The Gloss, a fashion website that “aims to bring style and substance together,” recently published an article that answered common questions about the up-and-coming trend. The piece featured our Black Cabrio Professional clog, a shoe that embodies comfort, simplicity and style.
So, what nostalgic items will you don with your Dansko shoes? Below, we share a few Normcore essentials, from aviator sunglasses to v-neck tees. Create your own outfit—and relive the 80s, 90s and beyond!
