That yellow women’s collection suit was one of three attention-grabbing looks that Harry Styles wore on BRIT Awards night in London in February 2020.

“I used to wear all black all of the time,” Harry Styles — who wore a powder blue suit with a sheer aqua shirt to perform in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — said in a 2019 interview with Dazed magazine. “But I was realizing [dressing up] was a part of the show, if you will. Especially when performing. So I think [for] the people I have always admired and looked up to in music, clothes have always been a big part of the thing.”
Harry Styles delivered another colorful look courtesy of Gucci — a blue long-sleeved sweater atop a scallop-collared shirt and green pants accessorized with white shoes and a necklace made of pearls — during a visit to the SiriusXM Studios in New York City in March 2020.
As a Met Gala co-chair in May 2019, Harry Styles had to bring it.

As far as jewelry, he wore a fistful of rings and a single pearl earring.

At the July 2017 premiere of the film in which he made his acting debut, “Dunkirk,” Harry Styles wore a classic black suit and white shirt. But in typical Harry, uh, style, he added red Chelsea boots embroidered with dragons, giving him that necessary flare.

What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that. If I see a nice shirt and get told, ‘But it’s for ladies,’ I think: ‘Okaaaay? Doesn’t make me want to wear it less though.’ I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier,” he told the Guardian in 2019.
