Nick Jonas: I don't want clothes clash with bro

Nick Jonas has joked his brother Joe "screwed him over" by wearing the outfit he wanted to wear to Richard Chai's New York Fashion Week show earlier this month.

The 22-year-old star rose to fame alongside his siblings Joe and Kevin in their eponymous band, but the trio are currently on hiatus after announcing a break last October.

Since venturing into a solo career Nick has discovered more freedom in fashion, but every now and then he has to check in when reuniting with his family.

"I think that is was incredibly complicated at times to style things, and even the picture you just saw [from the front row of Richard Chai's New York Fashion Week event].. thankfully my relationship with my brothers is really good because, I literally text my brother Joe and I was like, 'Hey, what are you wearing to this Richard Chai show?' 'Cos Richard Chai dressed both of us," Nick recalled to HuffPost Live.

"And he was like, 'Oh I'm wearing this suit,' and took a picture of it and it was literally the same colour as a suit I was going to wear. There's a wider picture where you'll see the pants are from the same suit, but I had to improvise with the jacket 'cos Joe, just totally screwing with me... but yeah, just gotta improvise."

Joe was wearing a maroon-coloured shirt with a black tie and dark suit, while Nick rocked an edgy black leather jacket with a white shirt that had a black stripe along the collar. His biker number is a wardrobe staple and he insists it's a great piece to wear all year round.

"A black leather jacket - because you can literally wear it with anything," he said of his must-have item.

"I've been asked this question a few times and every time it's the same thing but it doesn't matter what the deal is, even if it's summer time and it's hot, you can throw this on kind of as a try to look cool thing. And it works."
