10 Style Tips For That “Romney Casual” Look

Post-Election Mitt Romney is all over the Internet, pumping his own gas and visiting Disneyland and buying armloads of Honey Nut Cheerios. So it’s time you learned how to get his “disheveled older man” look for yourself.

1. Go casual gradually.

Don’t bail on your usual style the morning after the most crushing defeat of your life. Doing a fashion 180 overnight would be the OPPOSITE of “Romney Casual”. Just top off that glass of chocolate milk and relax. The struggle’s over now.

2. Come back in black.

No better time to unveil your change-of-life change of wardrobe than a Twilight movie date with the missus. But only give the press a blurry glimpse. That’s an enigmatic style choice worthy of Johnny Cash, the guy from that movie you saw on your plane.

3. Unbutton, but never untuck.

When treating his lady to some after-Twilight pizza, a “Romney Casual” Man leaves his uppermost upper chest exposed, real friendly-like. But the shirt hem? Sorry, the staff of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza in La Jolla, CA. That’s for Ann’s eyes only.

4. Remember that life’s a ride…

5. …and you’re the one behind the wheel.

So roll up those sleeves because you’re living to the max at Disneyland, and not because your handler says it’ll look blue collar.

6. Never be casual about that steely gaze.

One second they’re thinking you lost the election, next second they’re lost in those oceans of dark brown you call your eyes.

7. Don’t text. Call.

“Romney Casual” isn’t about avoiding personal interaction. It’s about taking the time to connect with people in a real and human way (seriously, it is).


The “Romney Casual” Man is a gentleman in the streets, but a freak in the…streets, after sundown.

9. Remember what’s important, but don’t let it stress you out.

Let loose! Grab a hold of your special lady! It’s Thanksgiving, the kids will be over soon, and hey, your staff probably needs to get going on that turkey.

10. And most important of all, treat yourself.

Not everybody can find a new lease on life (and untuck!) in Aisle 7 at CVS. But then, not everybody knows how to keep their life “Romney Casual”.
