From the Ground Up: Jovel Roystan

NYC-based creative Jovel Roystan (@jovelroystan) runs a popular blog while working full time for ASOS. We documented five of his favorite looks, from the ground up.

Shop the look: Shoes, Nike Acronym | Pants, ASOS (similar) | Top, Nike | Jacket (similar)

"I added a varsity letterman from my cousin which I brought home with me from Texas. I love that bad boy."

“The Acronym’s are perfection. I don’t need to say anything else about that.”

Shop the look: Shoes, Nike (similar) | Pants, ASOS (similar) | Top, NativeDanger (similar)

"The pullover is one of my favorite pieces I own because it has these panels on the side."

“This is a new color-way they just dropped which is pretty sick. Again, these have a sporty feel.”

Shop the look: Shoes, Adidas (similar) | Pants, Nike (similar) | Top, ASOS (similar) | Hoodie (similar) | Jacket, ASOS (similar)

"I think the shoes blend well with the coat. It’s sporty but relaxed – masculine but flashy."

“I got really obsessed with the Tubulars…I have three pairs. I like these because they are cream and pink and pink has been trending for guys lately. It’s another sporty meets stylish look.”

Shop the look: Shoes, Dr. Martens (similar) | Pants, ASOS (similar) | Top (similar) | Sweater, New Era (similar) | Jacket, Lee (similar)

"I love that this look isn’t matchy-matchy. Usually I’m really fine with things being coordinated but sometimes I like to mix it up."

“I like how this silhouette is simple, which is more toned down than the high top boots that they had in this color-way. Those would have been too flashy.”

Shop the look: Shoes, Adidas (similar) | Pants, Matiere | Top, Matiere (similar) | Jacket, ASOS (similar) | Hat, ASOS (similar)

"I love this head-to-toe look from Matiere."

“I really love these shoes because they’re clean and comfortable. I’m hard on my shoes so they get dirty easily but I told myself I wanted a nice pair of white sneakers and this was the first pair I found. Ya I love ’em.”
