Like norm­core, chances are you’re al­ready on board with the trend sweep­ing the style scene…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

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
