If, five years ago, you wrote off Harry Styles as just another heartthrob destined to be lost into the void of boy band has-beens, we have some news for you. Styles has turned out to be one of the most—dare we say?—stylish celebrities of our day. The 26-year-old musician and face of Gucci knows how to work a bespoke lace matching set (and that’s more than we can say for ourself).
Of course, this influence doesn’t come without its own share of controversy. Most recently, the Fine Line singer has been the subject of heated discussion for wearing a dress (Gucci, obvi) on the December 2020 cover of Vogue. To the haters who have a personal problem with Styles’s gender-fluid dressing, we say…did you ever hear of a guy named David Bowie? What about Prince? Yep, that’s what we thought.
So, to salute his fashion icon status, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Harry Styles fashion moments to date. You know, for posterity.
