With Harry Styles beginning Love On Tour September fourth, new looks, singing clips and pictures from his concerts will soon fill up our social media timelines. “Harries” everywhere are looking forward to the day Styles arrives at his next venue and performs his best songs, from “Sign of the Times,” to “Falling”. To celebrate his tour, I put together five different Styles-inspired outfits for your inspiration.
As Styles says in his song “Cherry”, for his fans, “there’s a piece of you in how I dress.”
Look #1: Inspired by “Fine Line” Album Cover
Starting off with the most obvious look, inspiration came from Styles’ “Fine Line” album, which was released on December 13, 2019. Because this look might be a little too colorful for everyday wear, events like costume parties would be the perfect place to pull these off. Parties where people dress up as their top Spotify artist have been all over social media lately; having a small, fun party with friends each dressed in their icon’s outfits would be an event to look forward to on a weekend. Thanks to Austin’s wide range of thrift stores, from Texas Thrift to Goodwill, these looks would be very easy and affordable to recreate.
Look #2: Song-specific Outfits
In Styles’ discography, there are plenty of song options to pull inspiration from for a more subtle outfit. For the outfit pictured above, I took inspiration from one of my favorite songs, “Kiwi”, from his debut album “Harry Styles”, released on May 12, 2017. For obvious reasons, the outfit features a range of greens tied in with gold to pull together the color scheme. Though the word “kiwi” is not mentioned once in the song, Styles’ is known for his fruit-titled songs, like “Watermelon Sugar” and “Cherry”. These would be the easiest songs to recreate as outfits, though reading through the lyrics of other songs could potentially spark ideas.
Look #3: Inspired from Photoshoots
Emphasizing the word casual for this business casual look, outfit #3 includes influences from Styles’ personal style. Often, Styles is spotted wearing a colorful suit at events like photoshoots, red carpets and interviews. This outfit would be fun to recreate for a photoshoot day with friends, and you could try a variety of different colors that would achieve a similar look perfectly. I found my look at Texas Thrift located about 10 minutes away from UT campus. Texas Thrift holds various colorful suits towards the back of their store. Though digging through racks is required, finding the perfect outfit always feels like finding a treasure.
Look #4: Concert-inspired
As seen in Styles’ performances, he often wears a blazer or a long-sleeved button-up top. This outfit takes a girly spin on Styles’ concert looks and would be perfect for going out to eat with friends. Though it’s rare for women to wear blazers when they go out, the confidence boost they give is perfect for hanging out with friends and elevating style. This pink blazer also came from Texas Thrift for less than $10, which was the best feeling ever, and it reminded me of Styles as soon as my eyes landed on it.
Look #5: Everyday Merch Outfit
Because the previous getups were for going out or dressing up, this next option is the best for an everyday look and definitely the most comfortable. Bought on the San Antonio date of “Love On Tour”, this t-shirt can be worn multiple ways, from wearing it with leggings to shorts. However, since Styles often uses flare pants, I paired the merchandise with flared jeans to continue to pull from Styles’ influence.
With five different ensembles put together, Styles would definitely approve of each. Hopefully, one look calls to you and pushes you to channel your inner Harry Styles. Take inspiration from one or all looks, for everyday fits or costumes, and have fun dressing up!
