Outfit of the month #12
By Sam Higgins, 3 August 2016
Maybe it was his thicker-than-usual barnet or his mid-2000s T-shirt layering – either way, July seemed to showcase a Zayn Malik who was ageing backwards. But even though his ensemble consisted of elements that have been more popular in years gone by, when pieced together, his outfit proved as forward-thinking as ever. So much so, that we’ve decided to recreate it for your sartorial pleasure.
Although there are certainly more lightweight, seasonal footwear options, the midsummer heat – as Zayn proved – is no reason to neglect your favourite pair of work boots. So exhibit some classic dad style with a pair of black Dr Martens and couple them with some heavily distressed, bleach-splattered, blue-wash jeans. Up top, layer a short-sleeved navy tee over a long-sleeved white one and your getup will have that throwback feel without your style regressing one bit.
