Style blogger Natasha Janelle on menswear and normcore

This week we’re feeling the simplicity and tailoring of menswear and all we had to do was look over at the desk next to us for inspiration. Natasha Janelle, Garmentory’s Product and Social Media Assistant, has the look down to a tee. So in this installment of WE LOVE, we’re doing a little navel gazing and giving a shout out to one of our own. She’s been blogging since she was a teenager and she studied musical theatre. Everyone, meet Natasha.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT MENSWEAR-INSPIRED STYLE? I appreciate classic, simple pieces that aren’t going to go out of style within a few months. I’ve been getting back into more vintage pieces as well. I like an oversized men’s tee or boyfriend denim… mom jeans… daringly long coats. There are definitely different styles that men acquire and I value pieces that I can wear over and over again and not grow tired of (so quickly).

WE LOVE HOW YOU CAN ROCK A SIMPLE TEE WITH JEANS AND SNEAKERS. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE WHOLE NORMCORE THING? Hah! I’ve actually only heard that word thrown around a few times. I Would agree to say that my style leans towards normcore. I try to stay away from trendy, extravagant pieces. Ever since I began appreciating fashion and style at a young age, I made sure to be cautious of dressing like all the “other girls”. That bugged me.

WHAT’S YOUR GO TO LOOK? Anything paired with a black pair of bottoms. My collection of black pants is outta control. As for shoes, because of my bad feet, I tend to resort to sneakers. Comfortable style is the best style. Add a half top knot bun on my head and I’m good to go.

WHAT THREE THINGS ARE ON YOUR WISHLIST FROM GARMENTORY RIGHT NOW? Ooh! Easy. The 69 Jumper and the Persephoni Cone Watch from One of a Few, and the Ilana Kohn Darryl Blue Net Dress from Room 2046.
