Get the Louis Look for Less: Louis Tomlinson's Athleisure Style

Louis Tomlinson’s trademark fashion sense is a favorite among fans and fashion critics alike. His effortless looks combine luxe, high-fashion brands with a comfortable, casual aesthetic. His style emulates “high-fashion normalcy”, as one blogger described it.

For fans who may not be able to afford the price tag of Louis’ Burberry caps or Gosha Rubchinskiy joggers, fear not! It’s still possible to channel Louis' luxury look with cheaper alternatives by incorporating the star’s signature wardrobe staples.

Think of Louis Tomlinson and you’ll probably picture him in a coordinated tracksuit. One of the most-loved features of his wardrobe is the retro 90s tracksuit, often made of a swishy, athletic material!

This look involves a more modern take on the swishy suit: a sleek tracksuit in baby blue, Louis’ signature color dating all the way back to his One Direction days! To offset the light hue, accessorize with dark grey trainers and a dark grey turtleneck. Louis often layers turtlenecks under his jackets to keep the look from being too casual.

Look #2: Two Statements in One

Fans will remember Louis’ frequent use of graphic tee-shirts! They’re, again, one of the pieces in his wardrobe that’s often in rotation. Louis doesn’t shy away from multiple statement items in one outfit, though! Older Louies might remember a punk-inspired outfit Louis wore a few years back involving a great pair of plaid pants.

In this outfit, pair a darker “All Possibilities” graphic tee with a pair of tailored grey dogtooth joggers. They look smart and polished, but they’re deceivingly comfortable! Finish the look with an understated grey ballcap - another of Louis’ favorite accessories.

Look #3: Red All Over

Statement track jackets are perhaps Louis’ favorite performance attire. He prefers brightly colored jackets in sporty materials, like the one worn at his Key 103 Live! solo performance. He typically tempers the outfit with more neutral pants and accessories, letting the vintage appeal of the jacket stand out.

This final outfit combines a red-and-black colorblacked track jacket with tailored, tapered joggers. The oversized fit of the jacket pairs nicely with the smart look of the joggers. Finish the outfit off with a practical accessory: a backpack by one of Louis’ favorite lower-end brands, Adidas.

Although Louis Tomlinson’s high-fashion, luxury athleisure style may be out of your budget, that doesn’t mean you can’t get his look for less! He favors a few key wardrobe styles, perfect for Louies who want to wear Louis-inspired looks without the designer price tags.
