When it comes to fashion trends, there are generally two types—those that are obnoxiously omnipresent and those that fly under the radar. The first camp announces itself loudly and is everywhere you turn. (Looking at you, Barbiecore.) You can’t decide if you love it, hate it or if you’re stuck in limbo because you just don’t want to wear the exact same thing as everyone else.
As for the more subdued trends? They pop up in your feed, or you catch a glimpse of that cool girl at the train station. There’s a mystery there, and that’s enticing.
One I’ve noticed gaining traction: the button-down shirt and boxer short set. And to be honest, I’m obsessed. Think: Tom Cruise in Risky Business, but with a bit more, uh, coverage.
