He is famed for being one-fifth of one of the most successful boy bands in the world, but even Zayn Malik can get it wrong when it comes to sprucing up.
The 21-year-old heartthrob has been sporting quite the unkempt stubble in recent weeks, where he traded his slick sense of style for something more hip.
But on Monday, the pop star emerged on stage at the Met Life Stadium in New York back to his old roots with a fresh clean cut shave on his face.

Everything',s coming up roses right now for Zayn Malik. He',s one fifth of the world',s biggest boyband and is engaged to the gorgeous Perrie Edwards. But even better than that, he',s managed to do the impossible - get a table at the hottest hotspot in the world, the Chiltern Firehouse!

You can forget anything you already know about florals in men’s fashion, because this is a slightly more gothic take on the trend that we',ve seen recently at the likes of Givenchy and Kenzo. And since sizes start from XS, there',s no reason why ladies can',t get the look too!
There are limited sizes left so get there ASAP to steal Zayn',s style. But if you do miss out, the high street is full of similar sweaters - Jaded London and Black Systvm have got our favourites.
