Whether he’s going to class or just hanging out with friends, Tanaka Tovar always kills the game with his cool and classic style – making him a perfect So Hot Right Now this week.

How would you describe your style?

I would say versatile and simplistic.

What is your favorite article of clothing?

Shoes. I feel like shoes have some sort of expression that they bring to an outfit.  I used to be really into sneakers so that’s just something I notice, but shoes are really an art form.

Where are your favorite places to shop?

Zara, H&M, Forever 21, Banana Republic, Georgiana, and I also shop online at a place called Jack Threads.

How has your style changed in college?

I feel like I’ve taken more risk with my style. Of course, I like to switch it up a bit every now and then, but it’s a way for me to just continuously express myself. If I’m going to kill a test, I dress it up. I want to look like a rock star.

What is your style inspiration?

There’s this YouTube channel called Teaching Men Fashion, and it talks about how to dress up like a gentleman. I also pull inspiration from Kanye West, Travis Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio.

What makes you feel confident in an outfit?

Most definitely outerwear and also personality.  Just being able to have the mindset of “I’m going to wear this today and I’m going to kill it.” At the end of the day, style is all about your confidence and all you need is to express yourself to your highest ability.
