We need to talk about Harry Styles' unconventional sense of style

Published: April 18, 2019


Harry Styles was never a boy-next-door.

Even in the early days of One Direction, the then 19-year-old singer never shied away from breaking stereotypes with his quirky style. After all, it’s in his name.

What started with a printed Burberry shirt has led to people obsessing over Harry’s penchant for bold, printed suits that are mostly for women. He even started his own fashion website called Harry Wore What for his admirers.


The Story of My Life hit maker’s flair for fashion has made him co-chair at the Met Gala 2019, alongside Lady Gaga and Serena Williams. As his solo singing career reaches new heights, here are six times Harry had us going gaga in quirky pant suits:

1. This harlequin 


Harry wore a Gucci harlequin-print pant and jacket with a white ruffle to the iHeart Radio Music Festival. The outfit may not be everyone’s cup of tea but there’s no denying this British heartthrob is pulling it off. Rock that ruffle, boy!

2. Purple haze 


Purple Chinese brocade is all Harry needed for his appearance at a late night show. He wowed the audience on The Late, Late Show with James Corden in this custom-made two-button Gucci heritage suit with flared trousers and a Japanese Oriental landscape printed all over.

3. Pretty in pink 


When in doubt, wear pink. Harry reminded us that this rule can apply to men as well when he wore this bespoke pink suit by Edward Sexton at a solo performance.

4. Floral fiesta 


The only thing better than an regular suit is one flaunting a floral print from head-to-toe. Again, this one was a Gucci two-piece. Looks like Harry has a thing for famed Italian brand.

5. Spring has sprung


The Sign of the Times singer donned a vibrant floral-printed jacket that he boldly chose to team with a plain black shirt and same pants. Talk about being in touch with your feminine side…

6. Diversity is the mother of all creation


Sometimes, you have to step out of your comfort zone. Harry is a firm believer of doing things out of the box, as he proved by indulging in this excessively-printed Gucci ensemble inspired with a geometric chequerred print.
