The idea is to look sophisticated and laid back at the same time, chic without being fussy. For those who feel an immediate dislike of the phenomenon, listen up. This is my defense.
The last thing you want to do is become so invested in your style that you stop being natural. A tip to remember is: always remain in control of your style and don’t be ruled by fashion.
One way to wear your style lightly is to break the fashion “rules.” This is where an innovation like rolling up your sleeves comes in.
Ignore those who say it’s pretentious or affected; those accusations are based on a fear of personalizing one’s style. If it works for Bomer, it can work for you, too.
When not to roll ‘em? A board meeting, interview or formal date are no-nos.
On a regular work day, first date or night on the town, rolled up sleeves look chic simply by way of contrast between tailoring and casual innovation. Your date will think you’re a fun-loving guy and will admire your suit while finding you immediately more approachable because of your rolled up sleeves.
Meanwhile, you can claim all the attractiveness of a well-fitted custom suit! So start rolling them whenever you feel comfortable. Own it. Click on “Get the Look” for a navy jacket perfect for rolling up the sleeves on.
