What I Wore: Styling The Basics (Normcore)


Sometimes, we get so caught up in trends that we forget the basics. The white t-shirt plus a black straight skirt is a classic combo and with the reign of Normcore, we are discovering that  one could be basic without being boring.

That's exactly how I would describe my style. I wear the most basic outfits and barely have any statement clothes.

Normcore is a unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious, normal-looking clothing. 

Accessorizing is key. I added these black rimmed glasses (gift from the bestie), mesh choker (DIY), Shoes I got while thrifting, dark classic lipstick and this statement bag from Zaful (style haul coming soon).

So I tested out my new camera and took this pictures myself using the self-timer function for the first time! I think the pictures turned out okay but I had a lot of issues with focusing. It took me about an hour to even focus right!

  1. I'm going to be doing a lot of elevated basics posts this year, I agree with you that we've been underplaying the effect of basics when paired right. I'm loving your pictures and your blog looks very nice and different.

  2. It doesn't look like you took the pictures yourself. Looks just as good. That bag is everything. Love the details.

    1. Thanks Laitan! <3 I was actually quite worried!

  3. I love basic wardrobe as I try to stay away from trends. Even if it's trending I will buy it in white, grey or black. Photos looks good well done. https://meilifisayo.wordpress.com/2017/02/10/lets-talk-lbd-for-valentine/

    1. Monochrome for the win eh? I really love grey though. Everthing tends to look timeless in grey.

      Thank you!

  4. Personal Style beats trends hands down. But sometimes, people get lost and don't appreciate it. Love this look! And your new camera is the bomb!
