Cam Newton is no stranger to style, and we love that he's so open when it comes to the care he puts into his look. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, the Carolina Panthers quarterback talked about his best style and grooming advice for men as well as what it's been like to be the face of L'Oréal's new Drakkar Essence fragrance.

"You can't wear this with sweatpants," he said of the scent, which blends spearmint, sage, tonka bean and musk. "It puts you into that [mentality] that 'I got looks to kill.'"

Now not only does Newton say it's important that a man be able to tie a tie, but he needs to make sure his clothes fit properly.

"I think one thing that goes unnoticed is working in your body of framework," he said. "If you're a guy that's 5'2" and 150 [pounds], why are you wearing 3X pants? No matter the jumpsuit, the style... it has to fit. It goes with a distinguished feeling, whether you're wearing jogging suits, dress pants or slacks. If it fits on you the way it's supposed to, people will look at you differently."

Newton also shared his grooming routine, like his love for face wash and caring for his pearly white teeth, and shared his tip on when's the best time to apply cologne.

"You have to do it when your pores are open and that's probably pretty much right after a shower. The secret is to have it just enough, but not too much. Any type of fragrance, especially with Drakkar as such a bold, loud fragrance, you want just enough to raise suspicion," he said.

Drakkar Essence, which will retail for $46-$88, will be available mid-August at Macy's, Dillard's and Belk stores nationwide. To read the rest of his tips, click here.
