Easy One Direction Halloween Costume Ideas That’ll Help You Celebrate Their New Album In Style
While most people know One Direction for hits like "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Story of My Life," the band members also have pretty recognizable fashion moments. (I'm looking at you, Harry Styles in a disco-print suit.) When 1D first hit the scene, they were preppy and parent-approved in pastel polos. However, over time they evolved into more of a classic rock style that involves everything from wide-brimmed hats to skin-tight pants. (Of course, I can't forget Louis Tomlinson's striped shirt phase of glory.) They've had so many fashion highs, that there's an infinite number of ways to dress as One Direction for Halloween.
The simplest way to channel the men of 1D is to pick each of their signature looks. (So many options from which to choose!) However, in the spirit of their upcoming fifth album, I'm going to focus on their latest style evolution. I selected some of the most recent looks from Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Tomlinson and found the pieces to pull it all together. You can thank me with a rendition of their breakout hit "What Makes You Beautiful" or perhaps even an acoustic performance of "Torn."
Here's your guide to dressing like One Direction this Halloween.
1. Harry Styles
2015-era Styles loves a flowy patterned shirt, which is super easy to find. I like this Floral Convertible Sleeve Portofino Shirt from Express.
Of course, you'll need a pair of black skinny jeans to truly achieve that rocker vibe. Try these Black Mid Rise Skinny Jeans from Express.
2. Liam Payne
Payne has been rocking a lot of hats as of late (please refer to the photo above), so that's definitely a staple for this look. This Faux Leather Band Wide-Brim Fedora from Forever 21 totally works.
Payne has also been channeling the '90s with plaid shirts. Luckily, that's a huge trend right now, so it's super easy to find a shirt that fits the bill, like this Classic Plaid Flannel Shirt from Forever 21.
3. Niall Horan
Horan's also been rocking the plaid shirts, although his are often short-sleeved. You can get the look with this Dolman-Sleeve Plaid Shirt from Old Navy.
Horan is known for being the only member of One Direction to prominently play an instrument. In lieu of carrying around a real guitar, I recommend this 1980s Inflatable Guitar from Party City.
4. Louis Tomlinson
Tomlinson has been loving a nice graphic tee as of late, which is so easy to replicate. This Original Graphic Tee from Forever 21 is perfect for the look.
Of course, Tomlinson has been spotted rocking a jean jacket as well. You can find a similar one with this Faded Denim Jacket from Forever 21.
