Style inspirations/icons: No one really inspires my style.

Favorite accessory: Hats, I have about forty.

Favorite color: Blue.

Style mantra: What is going to be comfortable and look good today?

Shops at: Everywhere. is good online, and I like H&M, too.

Giving's watch is paired with a rubber-band bracelet that says "Fat Tuesday," referencing Mardi Gras. "These are handmade leather shoes from Korea," he says. "I was out there for two years in 2010 to 2012. Some of the style from out there has influenced my style."

Style analysis: While many roam the hallways in this back-to-school season, only a select few do so in style. Giving displays how to pull off colored pants with his coral trousers and white button-up. The neutral tones of brown accessories -- the shades, hat, shoes and bag -- all form a nice contrast to his colorful bottoms.

Always remember to offset the pop of color with neutral tones, Denver.
