Style Lessons All Guys Could Learn From One Direction

By  | 

Tired of guys who just can’t get their act look together? They should take some sartorial hints from the always stylish One Direction. These British boys know how to dress well–not a cheesy “ironic” Hawaiian shirt or super-droopy jean in sight! We don’t know about you, but we wish the guys in our life always looked as fashionably put-together as they do. If you have a style-challenged boyfriend, brother, or male BFF, pass these tips along! It will be good for everyone. Promise.

Sometimes it’s cool to coordinate with your bros.
You don’t need to go full-on matchy-matchy, but don’t be afraid of looking like y’all actually know each other. This is especially true with suits–looking like the Beatles is never a bad thing.


Girls swoon over a solid vest and tie combination
If there’s “One Thing” we love, it’s this solid sartorial choice. In the vid, Liam’s wearing a grey suit (no jacket) and a tie. We just love the nonchalance of his rolled sleeves. It’s not too stuffy, it’s just plain cool.

When in doubt? Wear a white T-shirt.
James Dean got it right in the ’50s, so don’t mess with his style law. There’s something so simply hot about a guy in a white tee and jeans. You really can’t screw this look up! Except maybe with a pair of Crocs.


Shaggy hair is hawt.
Harry Styles has the shaggiest hair in this group, and he pulls it off. (Warning: you probably don’t wanna veer into Shaun White territory! Not many peeps can pull that length off!)


Touches of collegiate style = our secret soft spot.
It’s probably all the teen movies we watch, but there’s something that just makes us swoon for a guy in a varsity jacket.


Cardigans make us wanna snuggle, so wear them!
When boys wear cardigans, we just wanna get cozy. It’s a nice and stylish alternative to the faded and over-worn college sweatshirt.


Amp up your jacket selection. (No fleece! Nothing too schlubby!)
Watching their “Gotta Be You” music video, we’ve come to the realization that the pea coat is a perfect winter coat. And if that’s a little too preppy for you, there are other alternatives to keep you warm. Niall wears a sweatshirt layered under a blazer and still looks sporty yet suave.

Do you like how the boys of One Direction dress? Would you like the guys in your life to dress like them?
