Let’s face it. Most men are pretty damn lazy when it comes to keeping up appearances. That’s why it’s important to have a few tried and tested style tricks in your back pocket to look good on the go.
Case in point, Ryan Reynolds. The successful father, husband and professional smart-ass this week kicked off his Deadpool 2 global media circuit in Rome and he did it by looking smart with as little effort as possible.
All it took was three simple wardrobe pieces to get the job done – no layering, no flashy patterns and no outlandish colours or branding. Ryan Reynolds’s secret? A button-up shirt buttoned all the way up. Mind. Blown.
It might seem obvious, but a lot of men out there tend to underestimate how the humble button-up shirt can completely transform a casual look that is more primed for the low-key red carpet. Tuck it into your jeans or chinos, button it up to the top, throw over your favourite bomber jacket and you have a truly effortless smart-casual look which can get you through the day’s formalities in style.
This same button-up-all-the-way look can also work for coats, cardigans and most other outer layers. Of course don’t be afraid to add in a few details like a watch or a pair of glasses to elevate the look a bit more like Reynolds has – you’re still lazy remember. Just smarter in the wardrobe department.
Who said being lazy never paid off?
