Justin Livingston launched his style blog a little more than a year ago, but the dapper gent’s popularity has risen faster than he expected. “I had no idea that [the website] would be this successful,” he admits. “It started as a personal journal.” A few times a week, Livingston posts photos of his trendy outfits, detailing what he’s wearing so that dudes can learn from his style. He also occasionally covers fashion news and product roundups for both men and women. Livingston plans on moving to Williamsburg, after four years of living in Manhattan. “I honestly love the spirit of Brooklyn,” he says. “It’s the perfect mix of cosmopolitan flair and rural camaraderie. So many intelligent, savvy young people can freely express their love of ‘nerd chic’ in this community.”

Livingston’s favorite Williamsburg shops:

A&G Merch 111 North 6th St between Berry and Wythe Aves (718-388-1779, aandgmerch.com)
Livingston frequents this home-decor store for modern and unique wares. “I’m a big fan of home design and interiors,” he says. “This shop aims to inspire customers to think outside the box.”

Artists & Fleas 70 North 7th St between Kent and Wythe Aves (917-301-5765, artistsandfleas.com)
“It offers new and exciting items for repeat buyers,” says Livingston of this bazaar featuring locally made clothing and accessories.

Bird 203 Grand St between Bedford and Driggs Aves (718-388-1655, shopbird.com)
“It’s a great place to find unisex accessories and inspiration for upcoming trends,” says Livingston. “The staff is always so friendly and knowledgeable, which is a rare find.”
