Inspired By…One Direction (Part 1)

One Direction are just one of several boy bands that seem to be taking over the charts and maybe winning your heart?  The English/Irish boy band came together on the UK X-Factor, coming in third in 2010.  Since then, they’ve taken the world by storm, selling out tours in minutes, topping the charts constantly, and making tween girls hearts break.

The band consists of five boys: Louis Tomlinson (the funny one), Harry Styles (the charming one), Liam Payne (the sensible one), Zayn Malik (the mysterious one), and Niall Horan (the Irish one).

This week’s Inspired By… will focus on Louis Tomlinson.  Louis is currently 20 and hails from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England.  He’s the oldest in the band, but certainly not the most mature, and dates Eleanor Calder, a student at Manchester University.  When trying to dress like Louis, think red, white, and blue.  They seem to be his signature colors.

This first look is one most Directioner’s (fans of the band) associate with Louis.  He’s constantly wearing stripes and especially seems to love his red pants.  Instead of replicating his outfit exactly, I thought the look was a cute one for the beach.  Go with a nautical striped swimsuit and wear a white shirt and red shorts as a cover up.

In this second look, Louis and his girlfriend were taking a vacation in France.  Use Louis’ effortless vacation look for a nice casual look.  Choose a white v-neck, a pair of blue shorts, white shoes, and some aviator sunglasses.  A beige crossbody bag is perfect for on the go.

This final look is inspired by the boys love for blazers.  For a cute dinner look, go with a red dress, a blue blazer, and a pair of blue pumps.  As a nod to his British heritage, wear a union flag ring.

Louis’ style is a rather casual one, as most boy’s looks tend to be.  But his love for red, white, and blue can be fun.  You can play it up as a love for your country or as a cute nautical inspired look.
