I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but 1D fans could be headed for another disappointment sometime soon. One Direction is rumored to be splitting up for good, which means that this "hiatus" nonsense may have been nothing but a cover-up — say it ain't so! First Zayn ditches the band for a solo career, then the foursome tells us they're taking a short break, and now they are calling it quits for real? How much more can our hearts take?!
The alleged breakup news broke on Wednesday, and all hell has already broken loose on social media. According to US Weekly, an anonymous source said the band allegedly plans to extend their hiatus into a permanent split. “The 1D thing just ran its course. They’ll remain friends, but they are exhausted and want solo careers.” the source told US Weekly. Why, then, would they pretend this was just a hiatus? This is still only a rumor, and, Bustle's own Jamie Primeau points out, many bands have reunited after spending time apart.
Fingers crossed this rumor isn't true, but if it is, their music isn't the only thing that will be missed. The boy band's impeccable style will truly never be the same if they stay apart, because some of their most amazing fashion moments have been together as a group. Let's reminisce on the best One Direction fashion looks that will truly be missed.
1. All Suited Up
The boys pull off eccentric suits really well.
2. A Little Hipster
Cool graphic bomber? Check. Wide-brim fedora? Check. These guys have hipster style down pat.
3. Coat Game Strong
This looks like an ad for Calvin Klein outerwear, it's so good.
4. '90s Grunge
No one pulls of '90s grunge as well as One Direction.
5. Black & Gray
I love when the boys perfectly coordinate their looks.
6. Super Laid-Back
The ultimate chilled out cali boy look.
7. Retro Brown & Black
Obsessed with this untraditional color combination.
8. Preppy To The Max
Have we stepped into an Abercrombie & Fitch campaign??
I can barely handle the adorableness.
