How was your year? Any major highlights?

My year was very exciting! I turned 23, hit my first 10k followers on Instagram, traveled to 5 states and learnt a whole lot about photography as well as fashion.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

Renegades by The X Ambassadors is currently stuck in my head and I cannot get it out!

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

The most important thing about a guy's style is that he feels the outfit was made for him. It's also very important for the style to go with the location and weather conditions of the day.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Never go with clothes that don't fit just right. If the piece you like is not in your size just pass it up. Size can make the entire outfit look completely different.

1 tip to grow your Instagram account

The best tip I can give to grow your Instagram is to post as often as possible with a Geo Tag on every picture. Doing this gives your account more chance of being on the popular page and in return you will generate more followers!

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

The one thing I feel a man should never wear are cargo shorts and tank tops. They both just scream disaster.

Worst dating experience you’ve had?

The worst dating experience I’ve had was in LA. We met up at the Cheesecake Factory and shorty after we arrived her mother showed up uninvited and asked me questions for an entire half and hour. Soon the food began to lose its flavour :(

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

Adam Gallagher wins my vote for the most stylish man on the planet!
