The Joshua Gray Style Concept #74: “Uncommon Distress” | PC: Okennichiwa

**********

The Joshua Gray Style Concept captures my daily style and incorporates a style, trend, and concept message to share an inspirational message. Taking on distressed knitwear, I share a few reminders and thoughts to consider, when it comes to unexpected distressed.

While shooting this style concept, I recall discussing the unconventionality of knitwear distressed with holes, rips, and tears. Recently popularized by a few of Kanye’s Yeezy SZNs, there’s something deeper than the vain ambitions of staying on top of this trend.

Who would of thought knitwear would be a plausible or passable texture to distress (besides one who must succumb to homelessness)? Socially, who would think that not every smile we see reflects a smile on the inside of every person who affixes one to his or her face?

Similar to the recent, urban popularity of distressed knitwear, unexpected distress in the lives of those who seem unfit to experience distress may be more common than we realize. I know many times, my smile reflected what I wanted my life to be and not what it actually was. Therefore, be open to opening your happiness for someone else, consider these various ways to share the light you may have with those distressed, when they don’t even seem fit for stress:

  1. Pray for someone, even if they seem as if they don’t need it.
  2. Smile at someone, you honestly don’t know what they’re dealing with!
  3. Continue fostering relationships with the ones who love you, before you develop an unwarranted love for the ones who only like you!
