There are not many guys out there that can make every outfit look effortless without even trying. Making a statement piece look like your own isn’t always that easy. You might call it talent or just a natural sense, but not everyone dares to experiment with high-quality fashion pieces and second-hand items and can pull off that combination. One who caught our attention, at first sight, is the aspiring blogger Eric Jess who just makes every piece that he wears his own, whether it’s high-end designer fashion item or a vintage find from a thrift store. The LA-based menswear enthusiast made us a bit jealous cause he not only knows how to style every one of his outfits perfectly but he also just makes it look so damn easy and unpretentious.
But there is much more to him than just being a stylish millennial; at a very young age, Eric is already a multitalented entrepreneur living a life a lot of us can only dream of. We want to give you an insight on his story, his unique style and five fun facts about him that you probably didn’t know.
“I’m Eric, just some kid from LA with a mind that is way too old for my own good that is in love with city lights, vintage cameras, cafes, words, the internet, leather, and rock ‘n’ roll.”Eric Jess
There are many talents Eric has – whether it’s working as a model, photographer, social media or marketing consultant, but becoming a fashion blogger wasn’t always in his plans. One thing is sure: Eric always knew what he wanted and social media was already a huge topic for him at a fairly young age. Maybe you could call him a natural born entrepreneur because Eric had his first business cards when he was only six years old. He was already writing for numerous online magazines while still in school and soon after he ventured into online media when he started to live-stream his life 24/7 for one year on the popular Ustream. tv network. When he began blogging, he was more about tech at that time he also launched his first YouTube channel. But when he posted his first outfit shoots, he gained more attention then he’d ever expected and from there on his love for fashion continued to grow and he started his popular Blog, YouTube and Instagram which made him rapidly become a style tastemaker with a global following of over 125,000 to date.
After school, Eric began working in the creative field from assisting with videography and styling to eventually working as a Social Media Manager for a contemporary womenswear label before going freelance as a digital consultant and curator. Even so, being at the edge of modern technology, the young blogger always kept a sense of nostalgia within his vintage inspired-looking imagery and outfits that often display a great mix of high fashion pieces, casual basics and vintage finds.
