So, it seems that there is just no stopping the speeding train that is Britain’s -sorry, the world’s – biggest Boy Band, One Direction. Not content with the endless hit singles, merchandise in many forms, and collections of awards handed out by the industry, the boys – Harry, Zayn, Niall, Louis and Liam, have embarked on an adventure to the Big Screen.
We recently saw the band’s latest endeavour released at cinemas around the globe. One Direction – This Is Us became the band’s first movie, of which I’m sure there will be more. Interestingly, a former colleague of mine had penned a blog about the boys a few years ago, noting their obvious achievements in the fashion stakes. In the few years since, we’ve seen the band image mature slightly, whilst still maintaining the super cool look, and highlighting the main element of the band – fun.
As you’ll see from the photos attached, the band do love their colours. Bright coloured Chinos (which you can now create for yourselves using our new Chameleon Chino range) are often paired with a colourful jacket . This forms the band’s more casual look, and is often teamed with an open collar shirt, or darker coloured t-shirt. Casual footwear sets the tone of the outfit, usually with the absence of socks. Jackets are usually 1 or 2 button and are cut a little shorter to emphasise leg length.
When it is Red Carpet time, you’ll usually find One Direction looking rather dapper with formal clothing worn in a very stylish manner. Tuxedo jackets worn with separate trousers, or formal shirts and bow ties worn with braces are popular choices for the lads. They’re also not averse to wearing Double Breasted suits , and they’re certainly not afraid to wear waistcoats . In fact, I often think that the waistcoat is what makes them stand out from the rest. 3-piece is very chic at the moment, and every wardrobe should feature one.
There is no doubt that the 1D bandwagon will continue to roll on for many years to come. The band are always very fashionable, but do like to use elements of traditional tailoring and sartorial elegance in their styling. I have no doubt that they will become major influencers in the world of fashion over the years to come, and I look forward to updating my blog feeds with their many different styles in the future.
