I Did Not Wake Up Like This…

There comes a certain time in your life when you have to admit that you are a living a lie. The thrown together and easy approach you seem to have to fashion and dressing is an illusion. You don’t wake up, roll out of bed and grab the first thing you see, and just walk out the door… That is in no way how I approach dressing yet I give that impression that instead of taking hours I only take minutes. Unlike Beyonce I did not wake up like this.

Sprezzatura menswear Having been infatuated with the Italian word sprezzatura for a while now, I’ve tried to live my life by the code of it – “studied carelessness”. I’ve become a true master at the art of just of looking like I’ve just pulled pieces together when in fact I plan outfits the week ahead let alone the night before. But thats how I like it, calculated clothing that looks effortless and carefree. So while some people might say its deceitful, I say thats fashion. And what would fashion be without a little fantasy?

    Love this look !! I commend you for looking effortless, even if you do plan your outfits ahead. Not a lot of people can pull that off.

    You have nailed it. Effortless cool and it doesn’t come across as contrived at all. Win.
