You might have thought that as fashion editors, our main source of wardrobe inspiration would be the catwalks, street style or even Instagram, but currently, the title is sitting with none other than former boy-band member Harry Styles. Yes, we continue to surprise ourselves daily.
All of my non-fashion friends have admittedly been slightly baffled by Mr Styles’ “lewks” recently, often sending pictures to me (knowing full well I’m a lifelong member of the Styles fan club) asking whether I’m into his outfit consisting of a wide-leg suit and ruffled-blouse. I’m sure they expect a disappointed “I preferred his skinny jeans and headbands” reply, but, well, the answer is yes. Yes, we’re on board with Harry’s solo career style, and yes, if the whole Who What Wear UK fashion team could switch wardrobes with any celebrity right now, it would probably be him. If only we could also steal some of his confidence with it.
I mean, what self-respecting fashion girl wouldn’t want a dozen bespoke Gucci suits in her closet? Throw in some Marni, Marc Jacobs and a jacket from the new cult brand Bode, and it sounds very much like our dream fashion week wardrobe. In a world currently full of beige, grey and cream, Harry Styles (thanks to his stylist Harry Lambert) is a beacon to anyone out there who can appreciate the power of a good colour combination and a string of pearls. Whether it’s a vintage sweater vest and a T-shirt, a hoodie and Gucci horsebit bag or head-to-toe lace, Harry, we see you.
