A One Direction reunion could happen next year as Harry Styles and Niall Horan have been seemingly dropping hints.
Snapchat posts from the recent fourth of July weekend showed Harry Styles with longtime One Direction stylist Lou Teasdale. Prior to that, Niall Horan was seen at Wimbeldon with Ben Winston, who directed a number of videos for the phenomenal UK boy band.
The two?s public outings with people they have worked with at the height of One Direction could mean that they are still open to reuniting.
Just last month, Niall also fueled One Direction reunion rumors when he allegedly ?pinky promised? to a fan that they will be back in 2017. This was announced at an official 1D Twitter fanpage.

The pop quartet?s comeback would mean a lot to Directioners worldwide amid rumors that the group?s current hiatus will eventually become permanent. This fear heightened when Harry recently signed a solo recording deal.
Last year, the long-haired crooner even had four solo songs copyrighted with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. These tracks were ?5378 Miles,? ?Already Home,? ?Coco? and Endlessly.
However, fans? hopes were raised when it was reported that Harry?s solo recording deal is with Columbia Records, who also manages One Direction.
Still, break up rumors continued to hound the band. The possibility of a permanent split also rose when One Direction made headlines for tax related problems.
The group – who paid ?10 million in tax from their ?74 million earnings last year – were reportedly investigated due to an ?alphabet? shares scheme. This plan is highly discouraged by UK tax authorities, hence the need to investigate the band.
With all the issues that have made people believe that One Direction is over, there is one person who is vocal about how the boys will be back.
Simon Cowell, who discovered the boys in X-Factor back in 2010, assures their devoted fans that the group has not broken up. The star maker also emphasized that the boys still has a lot to offer, which could fuel anticipation over a possible One Direction reunion.
