Find pieces that really compliment and fit your body type. Which can also be said about accessories. Invest in accessories that suit you. Nick personally wears round-framed sunglasses because it compliments his facial structure. Accessories should serve a purpose and should be used to elevate your look not flood it.
He picks clothes that have a classic feel to it with an edge like cropped suits, floral blazers, and pastel pink pants. His beard and tattoos contrast against his classic dandy style. His wardrobe is a mixture of traditional key items in neutrals and prints. Don’t be afraid to wear prints! Floral, gingham, tartan, stripes, to abstract prints; there is a print out there for you.
