What happens when ex members of a music band are pitched against each other? Harry Styles and Zayn Malik were both recently featured on covers of two menswear magazines — Another Man and Highsnobiety. Of course, the question “Who wore it better?” did the rounds.
Featuring on three covers, by different photographers, Styles went for a vintage ’70s look. Fluffy knits, a Fair Isle patterned turtleneck, and a leather choker defined his Mick Jagger-inspired style. His ex One Direction bandmate Malik, on the other hand, wore a custom designed Gucci denim jacket, lined with shearling and detailed with applique badges. Street style perfected!
Three things to take away from Malik’s look — badge detailing, shearling lining and denim jackets. Stock up on these and you’ll be wearing them on high rotation through the season.
