Zayn Malik and His Stylish Rise to Fashion Fame

Zayn Malik made headlines when he was photographed wearing mismatched shoes while on a hike in Malibu. He sparked a footwear trend when he was spotted wearing a black leather boot on one foot and a Yeezy Boost on the other, along with a plain white tee and black skinny jeans. Sure, it’s not an appropriate hiking ensemble, but it’s an effortlessly cool look that’s all about stylish comfort.

The 23-year-old superstar has made quite an impact on the fashion industry with his ever-evolving style and impressive sartorial choices. He takes bold risks, as in his custom Versace look complete with metal arms at this year’s Met Gala. His casual-cool street style and enviable outerwear collection have dominated fashion blogs, and his high fashion looks have captured the eyes of prominent names in the industry. It is no wonder that Zayn is gradually becoming a style icon in his own right.

After slaying his performance of “Like I Would” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in a custom Balmain look, Zayn livened up the stage at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango event in another stylish all-black ensemble. He wore a leather jacket from Lanvin’s fall 2016 menswear collection over a black cotton tee from Tom Ford. Zayn styled it with super slim jeans from Acne Studios and leather dress shoes from Diesel.
