17 Times I Wanted to Steal Outfits From Harry Styles
I want to make one thing clear: I’m not obsessed with Harry Styles. Of course, like the rest of the human population, I’m aware of his career beginnings in One Direction, which took precisely two minutes to progress from The X Factor to worldwide domination. And while he’s gained countless fans over the years, I’m not hopelessly in love with him. I am, however, in love with his wardrobe.
Instead of adopting a boy-band “uniform,” Styles has always blazed his own trail, something I have the utmost respect for. In lieu of baggy jeans, backward caps. and American football tops (can you tell we don’t know how boy bands actually dress?), he has instead developed a penchant for flared suits, shearling, jacquard, and ’80s ruffles—all of which I’d wear in a heartbeat.
What’s more, he’s always one step ahead of the trends. Take cord trousers, for example. Styles was wearing a pink pair—with Vans no less—well before the look went boom on the street style scene. Needless to say, he’s been favoured by the fashion elite. In fact, this week, the star was featured in yet another Gucci campaign shot by photographer Glen Luchford, which shows him flanked by baby lambs. It doesn’t get any better than that.
I have no shame in admitting that if I could trade closets with anyone, it would probably be him. So keep scrolling to see Styles’s most “fashion” outfits (in no particular order), all of which contain pieces I’d purloin from his walk-in if I had the chance. There goes my invite to his next house party…
