My sister recently showed me One Direction's music videos after I asked her what was up with this boy band resurgence I keep hearing about. And while I can't really recommend their music, their style is great. So great that I had to take a bunch of terrible screen shots from youtube.
Good collar pop, excellent maroon turtleneck + grey collar combo--
Cholo collar, even better with the peacoat--
Great knit sweater, coat, stripes + suspenders combo--
Striped shirt by day, even better striped sweater by evening--
Dope cable knit sweater + khakis, classy on a bicycle--
Lookin' like an American Eagle ad, in the best way possible--
The blonde one wears an awful lot of American Apparel sweatshirts,
but I think he's supposed to be the youthful one or something.
Yeah the 90's were dope and fashion was different back then, but does that really excuse whatever is going on in the pictures above? Joey's coat is pretty awesome, but you have to admit they look nuts. Even at age 8 I knew that they weren't looking too hot. Tweens of 2012 are lucky to have boy bands who don't look like deranged, bleach happy clowns.
