The world is in uproar after Zayn Malik decided to leave the most well-known boy band, One Direction. If you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps, don’t worry, because we’re not forgetting Zayn anytime soon. 

Over the past five years, the pop star has blossomed from fresh faced teen to one fifth of the hottest boy band in the world. Favouring a rock inspired look, he’s usually spotted wearing black jeans, leather jackets and trainers. His cool signature style has even won him GQ.co.uk Reader’s Best Dressed in 2014. If you love his style as much as we do, read on to find out how to get the look.

One Direction may be one of the most iconic boy bands today but they don’t show off by what they wear, instead they favour basic pieces like jeans and t-shirts. Start your Zayn inspired look with dark wash jeans and roll them up for a little extra edge.

Loose layers are key to the effortless look, so team a staple white tee with an undone denim shirt for a 1D esque combination. The boys love ankle boots, so add these brown leather lace-up boots to complete your outfit. Zayn’s hair is a major part of his cool aesthetic so don’t forget the obligatory well styled hair and sharp stubble to finish the look.

Whether he decides to go solo or enjoy the simple life, we’re sure his story will have a stylish ending.
