Any style advice for a soon bald 22 year old?

I'm buzzing my hair off tomorrow, I'm finishing at work and I'm starting back into college in around 2 weeks so it's about time I took out the clippers.

I'm 22, 5'7, white with an inability to grow any convincing facial hair beyond mediocre stubble, so I'll settle for that.

Beyond shaving my head and keeping my facial hair well trimmed, I think it's a good time to fix up my wardrobe to suit the change.

I've been wearing the same thing forever.

Skinny jeans (skinny skinny), slim fitting t's, slim fitting jumpers (Sweaters),an assortment of hoodies, Ultraboost or Old Skools, maybe a pair of suede chelsea boots (Tan CP, Black SLP), Sherpa denim trucker, a thin puffer/down jacket, hoodie type waterproof jacket.

My clothing choice isn't terrible, I get a lot of compliments on it but I do think it'll look a little 'young' on me with a buzzed head.

I'm thinking of wearing less logos, slim fitting jeans, swapping out the vans for Lanvin Cap Toes or something that's a little nicer.
Maybe buying a big Shearling Flight jacket and some beanies (cold head).

I guess the colours that suit me will probably change since I'll no longer be brown haired and green eyed.. What would suit best with a relatively pale complexion? Mainly so I don't get mistaken for being sickly.

Any ideas?

It's my view that your complexion tends to dictate the colours that suit you, more than your hair colour. Especially given brown or black hair. The couple of friends I have who have balded early haven't really changed the colours they wear at all.
