My Morning Routine: Jon Batiste 

As the dancing, scatting, crowd-thrilling bandleader for The Tonight Show with Steven Colbert and the artistic director of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, when Jon Bastiste talks about wanting to be comfortable in his clothes, he doesn’t mean it like you think.  
“Everyone talks about the idea of being fashionable, but I think the best way to put yourself out in the world is to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing.” In other words: be you. For Jon, that means reaching for "older, classic things—suits, blazers, tennis shoes, jeans, t-shirts—with an edge. I have a ring from high school, from when our basketball team won a national championship, that I wear every day. And I always wear this ladder necklace that was given to me by a really good friend. It adds flair without being over the top.”
"An outfit is about balance,” he muses. “You’re balancing it with who you are as a person. I’m pretty outgoing, so I don’t want the clothes to be more outgoing. People see you before you speak."
