The singer’s easy-to-assemble outfit is a reminder that simple can be very stylish.
Living in this, the No-Rules Era of American Style, means never having to question what you put on in the morning. That said, wearing basketball shorts with snakeskin boots and a cross-body bag might not come naturally, or feel even remotely good to you. Perfectly fine! Pick one hyped item and weave it into your wardrobe of crewneck T-shirts and slim-cut jeans. Or pick none. Stay classic. Ignore every trippy track pant that crosses your path. Do not bat an eye at the neon Hawaiian shirts your favorite stores just can’t quit (frankly, they need to chill). Do what Nick Jonas did earlier this week and put on some denim, a pair of suede boots, and call it a day. As you can see from this photo: excellent style can still be dead simple. It can be both.
Even if you’re the sort of person who doesn’t shy away from a trend now and again, even if you’ve got a dragon-emblazoned satin bomber jacket sitting in your closet, there’s a good chance Jonas’s John Varvatos fit is catching your eye too. Admittedly, it’s a look plenty of style rebels—guys who on any other day might be wearing a fashion kilt or a silk blouse—have been known to embrace when the mood strikes.
Truth is, some days you just want to wear jeans—like Nick Jonas here—no matter what you wear the rest of the time.
