Why Harry Styles is the menswear style icon of 2021

Posted on July 16 2021

He may have risen to fame as a fresh-faced aspiring popstar. But former One Director star Harry Styles has undergone nothing short of a metamorphosis since his worldwide debut on The X Factor in 2010, transforming himself from a teen heartthrob into a bonafide fashion provocateur.


The British star’s gender-bending, statement-making sartorial choices have been making headlines for some time now. Whether it be a feather boa, pearl necklace or silk blouse, Mr Styles clearly knows how to live up to his surname.

In 2018, Harry’  fashion icon status was cemented after Gucci announced that he would become the face of the brand’s tailoring campaign. He was announced as a co-host for the Met Gala a year later. Then, in 2020, Harry made history by becoming the first man to appear on the cover of American Vogue.

In his interview with the magazine, the Watermelon Sugar singer said he felt liberated by tearing down the definitions of ‘male and female’ fashion, as it allows him to embrace his creativity.


‘Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it ... Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with,’ he said.


And while Harry is clearly making waves in the fashion world, he’s also scoring points in his personal life thanks to his picture-perfect romance with Olivia Wilde.

Perhaps Harry’s most talked-about red carpet moment of 2021 took place at the Grammy Awards. Staying true to his gender-bending fashion sense, Harry turned heads in a 1990s-inspired plaid blazer reminiscent of Clueless character Cher Horowitz, paired with a purple feather boa and brown velvet trousers.

Harry proved his fashion sense is still as hot as his career after arriving at the 2021 Brit Awards in a seventies-inspired suit from Gucci’s Aria collection. He accessorised the geometric-print ensemble with a bamboo-handle leather bag.

Gucci’s Beloved campaign

It was no surprise to see Harry front and centre in Gucci’s recent ‘Beloved’ campaign. The photo series, directed by cult artist Alessandro Michele, featured a lineup of celebrities posing in a fictional TV talk show hosted by James Corden. For his scene, Harry donned a fur coat, bold shirt and flares, while proudly sitting next to his beloved Gucci Jackie bag.
