Sneaker Diaries – Winter Normcore

Photography by Debs

I experimented with the normcore trend a few years ago when it was rife on the fashion scene.  It's not a look that I would wear every day but this outfit just sort of 'came together' when I was looking for something casual to wear over the weekend.  

You may recognise this maxi coat from one of my recent hauls over on Instagram Stories and yes, it is very similar to this one from Monday's post but as you can see I have created two very different looks with each coat.  This maxi version looks great layered over some tailored trousers or smart joggers, a cashmere sweater and the addition of the basic trainers keeps it looking chic but casual, which is the aesthetic of 'normcore'.

Is the normcore trend for you?

      Thanks hun, I love it when an item I’m wearing has a ‘I can’t believe it’s from…’ moment 😉 x

    I don’t think I mind the normcore trend at all! And you certainly seem to pull it off very well 🙂

    I think the thing is to just ensure that the pieces all look like really good quality, almost as if you’ve spent loads of money on staple items (which isn’t a bad thing!) But when Boohoo are doing coats that look THAT good, it doesn’t even have to break the bank!! Ha

    Which size are your pants?

    And also… I can’t figure out to find the embellished kaki jacket (from insta story) in the Black Friday post – can you please link it? I WANT IT! 😀

      The jacket is not in the Black Friday post, it’s on the ‘Shop’ page as I mentioned at the start of the haul >>> The grey trousers I’m wearing in a size 10 x

        Jesus Christ… I watched the haul twice to make sure I didn’t miss anything – and yet I didn’t hear/noticed that. Omg. Haha! I’m so sorry! 😀
