The Lucid Blur Sunglasses, $89

The Colombian singer prefers to wear radiant pieces — meaning he’s constantly wearing shades to contrast the vibrancy of his own outfits. This pair features tinted lens and translucent frames, a style combination Balvin favors.

Balvin is all about the workwear trend, but he’s not so much into its classic palette of tan, navy, and black. This maroon jacket offers the same structured look with a shade that’s still easy to style.

If all else fails, take a page from the Colombian singer and opt for a pair of statement shoes. Balvin’s own Nike collaborations are a little out of reach, but these graphic Converse sneakers make for an equally daring style.

One of the few basics in the reggaeton star’s closet is a pair of ripped skinny jeans. The style allows Balvin to show off his signature smiley face tattoo and some statement-making jackets.
