‘Chefcore’ is the a la mode restaurant-inspired style you’ll actually want to wear | Fashion

There’s a trend bubbling up in restaurant kitchens, and this time it’s got nothing to do with small plates. “Chefcore”, as coined by the menswear writer Clayton Chambers, has chefs ditching their traditional formal whites for a more casual aesthetic.

For a long time, no one cared what chefs wore, either inside or outside the kitchen. However, thanks to TV shows such as The Bear – where Carmy’s (Jeremy Allen White) perfect white T-shirt gained a cult following and (spoiler alert!) he gives protege Sydney a custom Thom Browne chef’s jacket – customers are as keen to know the brand of clothes a chef is wearing as they are the specials.

Look around your favourite eatery and you’re likely to spot that stiff, long-sleeved jackets have been replaced by Carmy-esque biceps-grazing T-shirts while torque hats have been ousted by baseball caps.

It’s a trend that is heating up in front of the pass, too. London’s celebrated nose-to-tail restaurant St John recently swapped its front-of-house formal whites for laid-back corduroy tailoring, teaming up with the Savile Row tailor Drake’s on a clothing collection.

Alicia McCarvell is challenging what it means to wear “flattering” clothing.

On Tuesday, the Canadian influencer took to Instagram to share a videos of herself mulling over two outfit choices ahead of a Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert. She paired the post with a body positive message about dressing how she wants, not in what’s “flattering” for her body type by societal beauty standards.

in the Instagram Reels, the social media star first posed in a light gray denim ensemble. She paired “option one” with a black strapless top, a silver sequined cowboy hat and black platform slides with homemade lettering that read “Eras” on one shoe and “Tour” on the other.

Element about the outfit since she was worried she’d be too warm with an all-denim look at the show, McCarvell took off her jacket but wasn’t a fan of the rest of the look.

Then, she swapped her jeans for a black leather skirt and added on a sheer black cardigan, which eventually became her final outfit for the concert.

In her caption, McCarvell was open to suggestions on where she could

The street style scene can be incredibly theatrical, with guests having at least three outfit changes in a day in the back of their chauffeured cars, pieces borrowed by designers for an hour or so, and outfits chosen for their wow factor. As fabulous as these moments can be, we find ourselves drawn to the quieter outfits that we can actually use as styling inspiration for months, if not years, to come.

Out of all of the international fashion weeks, London always has a more relaxed and practical energy—maybe it’s the high chance of rain, or the likelihood that you’ll be spending a couple of hours standing in a frozen warehouse in Hackney. Most editors, stylists, and buyers tend to wear their minimalist staples, such as jeans or black tailored trousers, as a base, and then add some more interest with accessories or a few trend-led pieces.

There were a few trends we saw, again and again, this London Fashion Week, namely bomber jackets, the leather motocross trend, wide-leg jeans, and oversized silhouettes. If
