Style mantra: Just be me, and go out in the world and be different. I'm going to be how I want and if people like or not, that's fine.
Tsakopulos's shoes are by Tom's. Tsakopulos sports several rings, as well as a mint belt and Mason jar filled with tea. "Colorado is a culmination of everything," says the native. "There are people from all over here. I think people's personal style is a reflection of their surroundings."
