Former President Barack Obama has always had an admirable swagger. Remember the gifs of him announcing Bin Laden's death and basically dropping the mic before leaving the podium?
The 'chillollar'Obama was speaking at a convention in Milan when he debuted his chill collar - chillollar? - look. With his shirt unbuttoned and no tie to speak of, Obama gave us relaxed vibes at the Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation summit where he delivered a keynote speech on food security and the environment. GQ says the look is "too casual" and not ok for someone "over the age of 26" but I say GQ doesn't know diddly squat and their call is totally ageist (almost too obviously and therefore possibly a trap).
Low-key in leatherTrump had just dropped a few tweets accusing Obama - without offering evidence - of illegally surveilling Trump Tower during the campaign. At the time I was unsure why Trump would bother raising this - I think my exact words in the newsroom were "whatever bro" - he already won the election and it was so obviously a ploy to distract the media from something. Obama may have thought the same, as he was pictured leaving the National Gallery of Art in Washington looking super relaxed and cultured wearing a brown leather jacket and jeans. Usually I would advise the average Joe against a brown leather jacket as anything that isn't a standard black biker reminds me of Kel's grey pleather jacket and matching man bag in Kath and Kim. Obama is not an average Joe.
Palm Springs ObamaTwitter lost it after Obama was spotted looking very relaxed in Palm Springs last year. Straight after his time in office came to an end and Trump's inaugaration was attended by basically no one, Obama was spotted in shorts, a t-shirt and his hat on backwards. The look came at a time when Trump was rapidly putting his stamp on bills and the whole world was dreading what he'd action next.

It was a confronting sight, seeing Obama had fully signed out and was 100 per cent no longer on duty.
