The Dress-Down: A Boho Too Far
So much for boho chic. Some of our most beloved boys have taken the dress-down to its extreme: they are now solely existing within the realm of what is being commonly (and offensively?) referred to in fashion circles as Hobo-Chic.
Case in point: the lovely Owen Hargreaves looks like he’s going through some kind of major life crisis with a side of empty shaving can-itis; The always gorgeous Niko Kranjcar is one whisker away from us speed-dialing a team of stylists armed with tuxedos and hair gel.
We blame Becks and his beard and grandfather sweaters for this new trend of unruly hair and general unkemptness. Since he recently had a shave, we’re hoping these boys will soon follow suit.
Your thoughts on this look? Are we being too hard on the dress-down?
