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 favored 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…

1. The Ruffle Blouse

Kate Moss’s frothy feathers are no match for Styles’s bougie ruffle shirt.

2. The Not-at-All-Basic Bomber

Jazz up basic skinny jeans with a decorative bomber. Bonus points for a satin finish.

3. The Double-Breasted Suit

Call off the search—I’ve finally found the perfect suit. Just picture this with gold heels and hoops.

4. The Suede Coat

I have three words for you: Burberry green suede. This is a chic alternative to a regular trench. What I wouldn’t give to wear this over straight-leg jeans and a band tee.

5. The Gucci Hoodie

For obvious reasons, I’ll take those desert boots too.

6. The Gucci Five-Piece

Speaking of Gucci, I need this look. The jacket, waistcoat, trousers, pussy-bow blouse, and loafers belong in my closet.

7. The Sketchy Print

Before face print was even a thing, Styles was in a tee featuring a cute sketched hand motif. Ahead of the curve? I’d expect nothing less.

8. Heeled Loafers

Suit aside, I’m definitely here for his heeled loafers.

9. Pink Cords + Vans

Before everyone else was wearing cords and Vans, Harry Styles was already at it. Pink cords, no less. 

10. Jacquard Suiting

Here, he proves jacquard fabrics are for life—not just for the holidays.

11. The Leopard-Print Tee

I legitimately bought an & Other Stories tee with the sole intent of re-creating this Harry Styles outfit, and I get compliments on it every time.

12. The Shearling Jacket

This Calvin Klein sweater-and–shearling jacket combination will keep me toasty all winter long. So practical.

13. The Pink Suit

Okay, so I know there are a lot of suits in this edit, but the day Harry Styles stops wearing such rad co-ords is the day I’ll stop being interested in them.

14. The Printed Shirt

Wear it with the top three buttons left undone, throw on a complimentary necktie, and you’ve got yourself a perfect rock ’n’ roll ensemble.

15. The Striped Suit

Yes, another suit. What can I say? The man knows how to pick them. I’d wear it with barely there strappy heels and a red lip. 

16. The Ultimate Travel Outfit

This one isn’t so much about a particular item, but more so about the overall attire, which I plan on copying in its entirety for my next flight. 

17. The Fancy Blazer

The wool texture, contrast lining, tortoiseshell buttons… I’ll be following Styles’s lead by wearing this sans top underneath for my next friends’ night out.
