Like an attractive person but who doesn't wear make up, doesn't comb, and doesn't try to combine his clothes.

Attractive in an edgy way, not caring about their look but still looking good. Being handsome without trying. A lazy person who doesn't even do the minimum and still attracts looks towards his/herself.

  • Are you looking for a word for somebody who is attractive because of not caring (as 'attractive in an edgy way' suggests), or somebody who is attractive in spite of not caring ('a lazy person who . . . still attracts looks')?

  • Probably different terms for a man or a woman. Hot mess?
