With NYFW just around the corner, Style.com took a moment to put out their predictions on everything that we'll be seeing in the season ahead, from which shows Kendall Jenner will be walking in to the advent of the "normcore body."
Intrigued? As Style.com put it, the normcore body is a backlash against the juice-cleansed, tightly toned bodies that have become the ideal figure in fashion. "A world of unvaried ultra-tonedness is boring," reporter Maya Singer wrote. "[...] it does feel like the moment has come, purely from a standpoint of aesthetics, for sensuality and softness, for bodies that don't look over-exercised, but fully lived."
