Normcore, the idea of normal and hardcore fashion concepts colliding, has been floating around for a couple of seasons now but is still considered under the radar. If you haven’t heard of it, here’s what the NY Times has to say about this grungy yet light style.

1. A fashion movement, c. 2014, in which scruffy young urbanites swear off the tired street-style clichés of the last decade — skinny jeans, wallet chains, flannel shirts — in favor of a less-ironic (but still pretty ironic) embrace of bland, suburban anti-fashion attire. (See Jeans, mom. Sneakers, white.)

2. A sociocultural concept, c. 2013, having nothing to do with fashion, that concerns hipster types learning to get over themselves, sometimes even enough to enjoy mainstream pleasures like football along with the rest of the crowd.

3. An Internet meme that turned into a massive in-joke that the news media keeps falling for.

Combine the revived trend of corduroys with all the rage that is colored straight leg pants and you have Cruna’s line of fall 2012 micro-corduroy trousers. This revamped take on corduroys make them more versatile than their predecessor, with fine lines creating a softer finish and a modern straight leg fit. Playing down the texture of the pants allows for some electric color options, which at the same time still emulates masculinity; mustard yellow, azure and forest green. The colored micro-corduroy isn’t just for the avant-garde man, these pants look great dressed down on the average Joe with a graphic t or hoodie, for these pants make a statement on their own.

Black and white has always been fashion’s prized first born of iconic color palettes, consistently showered with praise and affection as a go-to look for men and women alike. Black and brown, on the other hand, is the unwanted stepchild in a family of picture perfect combinations that no one wants to even utter a whisper of its existence out of fear of committing a fashion faux pas.

But what most people forget is that some neglected stepchildren turn into Cinderella and this fall, Prince Charming of Textiles has arrived and rescued black and brown from the dungeon of everyday fashion rejects.
