By all accounts, Nick Jonas is a very well-dressed man, a red carpet regular who takes chances and looks great in a suit. And lest we forget his long partnership with American label John Varavatos. But sometimes, even the best of us can get it wrong.

It can work, though. To pull off an all-denim look, contrast your items by pairing dark shades of blue on the bottom with lighter on top, or even black and blue. Oh, and keep the cowboy touches to an absolute minimum.
