It’s tough getting recognized when it comes to style. When one likes wearing classic pieces it gets even more tough as other dudes are probably doing the same thing. You love all those classic pieces. It’s simple and it never goes out of style. You don’t really have to think much when you’re putting on your clothes. For those who dress well and look as if they didn’t put much thought into their appearance, there is a word to describe such style: effortless. It’s a paradox when others describe effortless style as a product of a person’s time and effort. This can sometimes be true and the details that come with this Fashionisto’s look can tell you quite a lot about what it means to be effortless.
This young gentleman sports a classic white T-shirt, skinny jeans and Converse shoes. A well-established look, you can never go wrong with such an ensemble. While any guy can throw together this look, there is still a lot of character when it comes to what this guy is wearing. This Fashionisto’s tote has a hipster vibe which attests to the strong power of accessories. The strength of this tote doesn’t lie in its matching color with the shoes but in its simplicity and statement detail. The Chinese characters printed on the tote add an oriental flavor to the whole look and is a refreshing departure from a more recognized western style.
If you still think that effortless requires no effort then you’re wrong. Look at how this Fashionisto has thrown on a subtle but powerful combination of bracelets. Although thin and fragile looking, they provide a strong dash of color to the classic pieces. From afar one might not be able to spot this colorful detail, but up close it showcases this Fashionisto’s personality. As simple and subtle as everything can be, it’s always nice to add in a bit of sophistication. Although not a Rolex watch, the black leather strap and its off-white watch face dresses up this guy’s entire look. This is not only a nice touch but also tells us about this guy’s taste for both high-fashion and high-street.
I’m not saying details like an expensive watch or an exotic looking tote is the key to looking effortless, but details which are specific to your taste will complement classic pieces very well. It’s the canvas of classic pieces in which you must paint with your details. Put in the effort to decorate the familiar classic wardrobe and you might just come off as effortless.
Hint: Swap the tote out for a canvas knapsack for a more utilitarian look.
