“Model off duty”

Maybe there is a better term for it? This look is sort of paradox between being lazy and being a badass. It is comfortable, yet confident; cozy, yet cold. Within the past few years I would say this look has become popular by Alexander Wang. It basically consists of articles of clothing made of jersey knit that run the full spectrum of the grayscale, but heavy knits or leather jackets have the potential to pop up every now and then. It’s “beautiful”, yet still raw, with an organic feeling of ease and comfort. At times it runs along the lines of ambiguity and androgyny, but can still be sexy in the most understated of ways. Hair is left unstyled, and make-up is left to a minimum. Is it beautiful without really trying, or is it the product of actively trying not to be beautiful at all?
