Never Seen a Diamond in the Flesh: 10 of Lorde's Normcore outfits.

Lorde's lyrics describe a world past the music, money, and fame. She breaks free the lives of everyday teens with her words by highlighting the extraordinary within the ordinary. Her outfits would fall under the normcore category (hardcore normal), and are not meant for standing out, but in a business of outrageous shock outfits, Lorde stands out as the one resisting the cultural pedestal that supports luxury and consumption.

"We live in Cities, You'll never see on screen, not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things" TEAM. Lorde knows how to tone it down in a way that makes her stand out completely. The hat is the only semi-outlandish part of this outfit, but the oversize blazer is quite different from anything else on the carpet.

"But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash. We don't care, we're not caught up in your love affair." ROYALS Her white collar look doesn't need the glitter frequently used by other young artists like Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.

"It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)" TENNIS COURT The best part of this light pick I mean business look is the vibe she gives when she can put her hands in those huge pockets while performing. "This comes easy to me".

"I love these roads where the houses don't change (and I like you)" 400 LUX It's not exactly casual or even normal, but it's simple because of the length and her hairstyle. Some would say goth, and others would say classic.

"Explosions on TV, and all the girls with heads inside a dream, so now we live beside the pool, where everything is good" BUZZ CUT SEASON Taylor Swift is known for her country girl retro and Lorde doesn't find it hard to fit in with her laid back beach look.

"All my fake friends and all of their noise, complain about work, they're studying business, I study the floor, and you haven't stopped smoking all night" A WORLD ALONE The oversized white button down is very 90s-esque. It matches her praise-the-normal lyrics.

"Deep in the fantasies and dreams of the winter like the movies" NO BETTER Once again, big pockets are for nothing but casual standing that says "I meant to be here, I don't need a strobe light on my shirt".

"There's something about the night, and the way it hides all the things I like, little black butterflies deep inside me" MAMA DO There's nothing like that simple black coat that goes with everything. Even though it's a photo shoot, it's still cold out and she needs to look like she showed up like this.

"We got the glow in our mouths, white teeth teens are out, white teeth teens are up for it" WHITE TEETH TEENS More Blazer action. Lorde's office is the stage and there's nothing sharper than pant suit attire.

"I've never seen a diamond in the flesh" ROYALS All she needed to look stunning in her first video was a white t-shirt. Enough said.
