the heart-throb’s most fashionable looks

Harry Styles, as his surname suggests, has racked up quite the collection of sartorial credentials.

The multi-hyphenate, who turns 27 today, has hopped from being one-fifth of the British boy band One Direction to solo star to actor, all while maintaining his inimitable style. 

Since leaving his boy band days behind in 2017, the Mancunian has developed his own personal look, regularly showing off bold choices that are flamboyant, fashion-forward, and fun.

Indeed, his fearless wardrobe (remember that sensational American Vogue cover?) has now become as renowned as his catchy songs. For the video of his hotly-anticipated fifth single Golden from his second album, Styles threw his weight behind University of Westminster graduate Steven Stokey-Daley by sporting the student’s ‘Sebastian’ trousers, which caused them to sell out instantaneously.

Never one to shy away from a statement (his iconic Met Gala 2019 look consisted of a ruffled black blouse, Cuban heels, and a singular pearl earring), Styles knows a fashion win when he sees one, one of which was the ‘jorts’ and loafers combo he sported for GucciFest in November. And lest we forget him posing up a storm in fishnets on the cover of Beauty Papers in a shoot which broke the Internet.

Shakira, Beyonce posing for the camera: Ahead of January 7th's Super Bowl halftime performance, this year by The Weeknd, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and look back on every Super Bowl outfit from the past 28 years. From Diana Ross to Lady Gaga, there have been some amazing live shows given during the halftime, and with performances, come extremely fun Super Bowl outfits. Whether it be Jennifer Lopez in Versace, or Katy Perry in Jeremy Scott, here are the most fantastical Super Bowl costumes that ever graced the halftime show....

Styles sent the Internet into a flurry once again at the start of 2021 (start as we mean to go on) when he released the video for his sixth single Treat People with Kindness. Starring alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the pair wore co-ordinating head-to-toe tonal Gucci ensembles as they danced with each other against the backdrop of a retro club. Under his ivory sequinned jacket, Styles wore a beige argyle knit which, Lyst reported at the time, caused a 39 per cent spike in searches for similar pieces.

With a wardrobe this Watermelon Sugar-sweet, it’s no wonder he keeps his clothes under 24-hour surveillance, a fact that his collaborator Harris Reed revealed to GQ in 2019. 

“I can’t say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive, somewhere in London,” Reed said. “The clothes all have 24 hours surveillance, which you can look at via an iPad, specifically for his outfits.”
