Through the years, order the style transformation of the world’s biggest boyband’s frontman was something that went largely undetected; it was the 2013 annual BFA bash when he picked up the ‘Style Award’ that the fashion crowd fixed one eye firmly on Mr Styles, and rightfully so. Since then, he’s rarely disappointed, whether it’s a flamboyant performance look or a case of perfectly executed off-duty rockstar regalia the heat on Harry’s threads has picked up. Let’s take a look…

Preppy Boyband (2010/2011)

2010 : 2011

It was in 2010 that Harry Styles was catapulted from unknown bakery assistant to global pop star through the power of Simon Cowell’s hit talent show ‘The X – Factor’. His status as style icon wasn’t apparent from the the early days, much like that of his bandmates, Styles clearly followed the show stylist’s cookie cutter, butter – wouldn’t – melt persona fabricated for the group and rarely deviated from this. Hoodies, chinos, polo shirts and an abundance of preppy blazers and bow ties we’re prevalent but stylistically uninspiring.

Mick Jagger, is that you? (2012/2013)

2012 : 2013

The success of the first album, paired with newfound global superstar status clearly spurred Styles on to take a greater interest in his image as the hoodies and tracksuit bottoms began to take a back seat and a more stylistic approach was developed. Black, navy, grey and generally duller colours were prevalent in a sharper, more tailored form; low cut t-shirts, skinny jeans and increasingly lower button down shirts were a common appearance. It was at this stage that Harry’s interest in fashion began to make itself apparent, while the four other boys would dress relatively similar to their bandmates, Harry always pushed the fashion boat out that little bit further; as mentioned previously – this paid off when Harry received the BFA style award.

2012 : 20133

Saint Laurent or Nothing (2014/2015)

2014 : 2015

Recently, the differences between Harry and the other members of One Direction has become blindingly apparent on the red carpet. Pussybows, sheer shirts and print tailoring have taken centre stage as Saint Laurent has become his bread and butter and Gucci’s bohemian edge with androgynous vibes have become commonplace. In the past couple of years, there’s not one publication that hasn’t covered the burgeoning fashion icon status of Mr Styles and he’s immersion within the Primrose Hill set has cemented his place among the fashion elite; as his confidence in his own style grows it’s only likely that we’re in for more fashion moments ahead – Styles’s style is one to watch.
