Harry Styles turns 27 today and we wanted to celebrate by taking a look at some of his most iconic gender defying outfits. Not only is Harry an amazing musician, performer and all-round icon, but he is also on a mission to push boundaries with his fashion and outfits. We LOVE a star that isn’t afraid to step out onto a red carpet in something a little different. Take a look at some of his best fashion moments, when he proved that clothes are for everyone, and encouraged us all to dress however the f*ck we want.

Over the last few years, Harry has nailed the androgynous style and really showed us that clothing does not need to reflect your gender, sexuality or identity. Fashion is simply a way to express yourself and should make you feel happy and confident.

“In fashion and other fields, these parameters are no longer as strict as before, and it gives rise to great freedom. It’s stimulating.”

Harry seems to have nailed the combination of typically masculine and feminine outfits. Throwing on a pearl necklace and a frilly peter pan collar under his shirt adds the flair we never knew we needed.

“I think there’s so much masculinity in being vulnerable and allowing yourself to be feminine, and I’m very comfortable with that”

The met gala 2019

Could we really do a Harry Styles outfit roundup without this iconic Met Gala look? Head to toe in Gucci, Harry made a lasting impression in a sheer black jumpsuit for the theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion. This may have been one of the defining moments that established him as the fashion icon we know him as today.

“We no longer need to be this or that. I think now, people are just trying to be good”

Styled in a custom Gucci dress and blazer, this cover opened up lots of conversations and even started a TikTok of cisgender men wearing skirts and dresses. This magazine cover even featured in our roundup of positive things that happened in 2020.
