Embrace Imperfections (Sometimes)
The aforementioned sprezzatura is in itself a fashionable art form, but for those of you unacquainted with the term, a brief primer is in order. The best way to describe sprezzatura is the sartorial equivalent of making something that’s incredibly difficult appear to have been done thoughtlessly or with little effort.
America's grunge phase during the '90s is a great example of sprezzatura. However, instead of purposely wrinkled flannel shirts and over-washed denim, the Italian version uses items like suit pieces, ties and unconventional pocket squares. It's premeditated disheveled at its best.
