Niall's Take:Sure this shirt looks like the one you like to secretly steal from your boyfriends, but it probably cost more than your house. NBD.
Justin's Take: Consider this one to be your Basic Bieber: layered shirts, baggy jeans, fly kicks and bangs so long they block out your eyesight. Now, you can customize it to your liking.

Liam's Take: A simple, laid-back look that says, "I'm the boy next door you've been dreaming of. Vote for me."
Justin's Take: Close your eyes and picture Bieber for a moment – not current Bieber, but the quintessential Bieber. He looks exactly like he does in this picture, doesn't he?

Niall's Take: Pretty much the same outfit that your younger brother wore to every family gathering you've attended in the last year and a half.
Justin's Take: Whatever his mother laid out on his bed that morning, although he swapped out the oxfords she picked out for sneakers in order to look a little less dorky.

Louis' Take: TFW the stylist only has time to dress two of you, so you throw a scarf on over your favorite outfit to make sure it looks like you put some effort into getting dressed.
Justin's Take: TFW you're singing on the Today but it's a little chilly out, so your manager makes you wear a scarf so you don't catch a cold even though you only have the sniffles, it's not that serious, geez.

Niall's Take: "Wait we have a press event now? I thought that wasn't for a few more hours. How fancy is it? Can I go in this? Perfect."
Justin's Take: "Another concert? Okay, okay, I'm out the door. This is cool to sing in, right?"

One Direction's Take: Have you ever seen a group of people color-coordinate so hard? Yeah, we thought not.
Justin's Take: If any of the One Direction boys sprains an ankle at any point, the Biebs is ready to hop onstage and fill in. He even dressed the part.

Zayn's Take: He's English, and he's still serving those classic, all-American vibes better than the star quarterback on your high school's football team.
Justin's Take: "Hey, girl. Why don't you hop in the back of my convertible, and I'll take you out for a milkshake, and we can cuddle up in the backseat at the drive-in theater."

Zayn's Take: Remember when you first saw the movie Grease, and you fell in love with Danny Zuko? Get ready to feel those fluttery, excited feelings all over again.
Justin's Take: Basic black? Please. This kid's a fashion maverick, and he's going to blow your mind with his super-cool, unexpected motorcycle jacket. (Plus, it just goes better with his shoes.)

Zayn's Take: "What am I up to? Just casually looking super stylish and super cozy without even trying. Why, you jealous?"
Justin's Take: Did you even know that the hoodie under a coat look could be so hip? So fresh? Require so many different layers and accessories? Thought so.

Harry's Take: Think of it as the gateway shirt that inspired his current closet full of wild patterns, kooky designs and what seems to be a deep and unconquerable phobia of buttons.
Justin's Take: When you're debuting a hairstyle this revolutionary, this world-changing, this buzz-worthy, you can't let it down with a boring black or white shirt. You go big or you go home, and Bieber always goes big.
