What is “core” in fashion and why did they become popular?

Female

Some call the “core” in fashion a micro trend, but it is more than a trend. This is a legitimate opportunity to transform yourself, going beyond creative photo shoots. This is an opportunity to be a character in real life, not just cosplay.

“Style” is a vague concept, based on an internal sense of self, based on a theoretical foundation. And the “core” ones are subcultural and often rely on famous movie characters. And yet, core, unlike cosplay, allows you to add your own personality to the images.

How to relate yourself to a certain core, try to create a mood board that is dear to your heart from clothes, interior items, colors, characters. If nothing comes to mind, perhaps you are a supporter of normcore, ordinary clothes without signs of individuality, fantasy or show off.

Below are the most popular cores and their visualization.

The mermaid style gained particular popularity after the release of the movie The Little Mermaid. In everyday life, wear flared jeans, tops and dresses with large sequins, long casually flowing stripes, mesh, dresses and long skirts in the godet style. Fabrics with a wet sheen will help you.
