Style mantra: Wear what makes you confident.
Shops at: Anywhere that has good clothes. I like Macy's, Express, H&M, Men's Wearhouse and even Kohl's.
"Watches are really my thing, too," says Evans. " I have about seven different ones. Some are for special occasions, and some are for everyday use. I wear this one when I like to feel fancy."
"I dress up for work, but also because it makes me feel good," he adds. "I like looking professional, even when I go out bar-hopping for fun. It looks nice and clean."
Style analysis: Ross Evans is a guy who knows how to dress. He infuses classic gangster attire into his wardrobe with bow ties, suspenders and formal wear, and also takes cues from the men in his family to model himself on their aesthetic. He loves the color red -- which you can see in his bow tie, suspenders and even his socks! Above all else, his street style gives him confidence.
Take cues from your favorite film and even your family, Denver, to create a street style all your own.
