It’s no surprise that I’m a little in love with One Direction. I have zero shame about that fact. I will proudly proclaim that one of my favorite people in the entire world is Harry Styles. There’s much more to him than what meets the press. Styles (it’s weird for me not to call him by his first name as we always do in fandom) is a sweet cupcake, a goofball, and a person with a massive heart that’s not often promoted. There’s one thing that’s indisputable to fans and non-fans alike: Styles fashion sense is ON POINT. This Sunday is Styles birthday and in honor of that, I figured it was about time I introduced you to the second part of my fashion icon series. I promise, as much as I want to, I will use all my effort not to make the pun about his last name and how it correlates to this post.
Styles is probably one of the figures who impacts my fashion sense most at the current moment. There are so many days where my family and friends take one look at me only to make Harry comments. See my Miami concert inspired outfit for a slice of proof.
I’m not alone in my love of Harry Styles fashion sense. Styles was selected as the winner of the British Style Award in 2013, which is the top honor in fashion in the UK. Many magazines have placed him numerous times amongst their best dressed lists too. Styles is often invited to sit front row at the top designers showcases year after year including the elusive Burberry. His fanbase have created a website based off his clothing choices to gain information on the pieces Styles wears and cheaper lookalikes. Many of the items Styles wears quickly sell out. Harry Styles takes fashion risks, but his looks have become familiar on red carpets and trends in everyday style.
Harry Styles fashion has best been described as “androgynous rock star chic” which I think is perfect. Think Mick Jagger in his prime with a little dash of Keith Richards eccentricity.
