We're Loving Harry Styles' New Direction

A sign of the times?

Harry Styles has certainly, if not serendipitously, earned his surname over the past few years. From pastel pink power suits to suede Chelsea boots, the 23-year-old Brit has been channeling vibes ranging from ’70s Bowie – those silk bell bottoms – to Leo DiCaprio circa Romeo + Juliet, with all the swagger of a true millennial pop star. In other words, his public image is a heavenly gumbo of the very best of trends from a few of pop culture's most magical decades. With a contemporary spin. 

Even on his more casual days, the singer throws in cheeky little detail (i.e. a newsboy cap, Hawaiian print or Dadcore shirt). He's embraced bold prints and bright colors in a way that we weren't expecting to see from the former One Directioner, but no matter how out-there his floral shirts, bespoke dragon pants or two-pieces are, they're always perfectly tailored. It's a real lesson in what you can get away with if your clothes fit you properly, and his transformation has captured the fashion world's interest: there is even an entire Twitter feed dedicated to reporting on his latest looks. Expect to see a lot of RTs from Gucci, plus shout-outs from Valentino, Burberry – and even up-and-coming Central Saint Martins graduate Charles Jeffrey

Whether he's finally expressing his true, flamboyant self after breaking the shackles of co-ordinated boy band dressing, or there is some genius stylist behind his new direction (geddit?), we dig Styles for his music, but we properly fell in love with him the moment he decided to do Carpool Karaoke in a mesh tank and leather vest.
