GET YOUR STEEZE ON
Like normcore, chances are you’re already on board with the trend sweeping the style scene…
Much like Trekkies and LOTR obsessives, fashionistas too have their own unique language that, to the untrained ear, likely sounds like gibberish. From the shacket (fashion speak for a shirt-jacket) and culeans (culotte-style jeans) to greige (a shade that sits somewhere between grey and beige on the colour wheel) and athleisure (a sporty way of dressing), the industry has created what might be the most complex method of communication since Latin.
We are, of course, kidding but the fact that people live their lives wardrobes by these words is no laughing matter. And now, following in the Stan Smiths of the much-mocked ‘normcore’ comes ‘steeze’. Indeed, it may sound like a sexually transmitted infection (it’s not) but it actually refers to, well, what we’re guessing you’re currently wearing. An abbreviation of the words ‘style’ and ‘ease’, the term means curating an outfit from effortless basics. Comfy, casj and cool in equal measure, the easiest way to achieve peak steeze is by investing in relaxed pieces – sweaters, jeans, pool slides… you get the idea. Now, every day can be steezy like Sunday morning. Sorry.
Style and ease = steeze
