One Direction is a British-Irish boy band made of members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. One Direction, released its first album in 2011 called, Up all night. It hit the number one spot. On a fashion front, these boys certainly are showing us the One Direction in fashion, they are the latest boy trend setters.
What is it about these guys wardrobe that is rocking the world right now? From a design point of view they have covered it all. Blazers, vests, chinos, braces, coloured suits, cardigans, trainers, checked shirts, bow ties, layering, and the grunge look. The way they are styled on and off stage is a fashion marketing tool for all the top labels right now.
It is fantastic to see a boy band leading us when it comes to men’s fashion. For far too long men are just existing when it comes to style. They are not afraid of colour. They embrace the messy hairstyle look and male grooming. They love braces and it is flattering to see, on appropriate occasions they wear youthful funky suits. Even thought they have the money to splurge on any clothing label, you know as young boys you can head to Topman, Urban Outfitters or even H&M and get the same look.
Head in a similar direction, create your own take on what looks good on you right now. Men’s fashion is getting a whole lot hotter this 2012.
