You’ve got questions, and he has answers.
In today’s episode, Carlos is responding to our followers’ and readers’ fashion-centric questions that you guys submitted.
1) How would you describe your style?

2) What are your summer style tips?
Being based in the UK, Carlos sees lots of rainy days. But when he travels he swears by shorts, flip-flops, and either tank-tops or just goes shirtless.
3) Who’s your style icon?
There are too many to choose from, so Carlos names a couple of his top favorites – he draws inspiration from movies and cites Marlon Brando in The Wild One, James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause as great guys to look to for classic style, and also digs Steve McQueen and Ryan Gosling’s styles.

Carlos digs ripped jeans, but the totally destroyed jeans are just not something he can get into.

Don’t try too hard. Dress in a way that feels true to you.
