Say what you like about One Direction (as long as it’s nice) they have a brilliant stylist. But not so the legions of boybands that have come before them, let’s take a look at the 10 rules for boyband styling with special note to N’Sync who seem to have trail-blazed the look in every category.
The Mix N’ Match T-Shirt
The corner stone of the 90’s casual look, simply accessorised with necklace and a pair of high-waisted Levi 501’s and chunky belt.
Be Not Afraid of Double Denim
Jackets, shirts, bombers, blazers, jeans, dungarees, dark, sky, ripped, shiny or floral lined. There are no rules when it comes to denim.
Even When it’s Warm: Do Fur
A symbol of money and power, and more often hip hop – fur is a key boy band line-up accent piece.
Let It Shine: Blinding Metallics
Be it silver slacks or sharp metallic dinner jackets with a pop of colour, when hit the stage, you’re ready to shine.
Use Colour Wisely
Perfect pallets, matching hues or creatively clashed – the boy band who wears colour says, ‘I checked my contract and it says we are individuals.’
Wear It Once: White
Timeless and classic. A forever-look for boybands across the decades. It says virginal angel while suggesting a good home laundry system.
Boybands ready for entertaining tweenagers, children and painting your house: the dungaree is worn to put your mother at ease.
No Pants: No Rules
You may think a tattooed arm is the signature naked limb, but not so. The no-pant, just stood up from the loo look is surprisingly enduring.
Incase anyone is in any doubt, or someone on the tour bus mistakes you for a junior sparky, make sure you match something. Or everything.
After-hours: The Undone Tuxedo Look
Roofies at the ready. Can they buy you one last drink?
What do you think? Have I missed any? The sporty look? Who is the worst dressed boyband of all time?
