Harry Styles Brought Retro Suiting to the Brit Awards

Tonight, the brightest stars in music—including Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Harry Styles—gathered at the 2021 Brit Awards in London, England. No awards show would be complete without some stellar looks, and Styles did not disappoint as he picked up the MasterCard British Single award for his smash hit, “Watermelon Sugar.” The star slipped into a retro, 1970s-style suit for the affair, and it’s one that only he could pull off. Well, him and the model who wore it on the runway just one month ago. 

Styled by Harry Lambert, Styles wore a groovy Gucci suit with large lapels and a flared pant leg, from the house’s fall 2021 collection. The wallpaper-esque print could have been pulled from a house in the ’70s, too, with its tonal brown and cream squares. For a more modern feel, Styles paired the suit with sleek white sneakers, a fistful of rings, and a brown purse with a bamboo top handle. (This accessory choice comes right after he starred in a handbag campaign for Gucci.) Styles rarely misses on the red carpet. The psychedelic suit could have easily veered into costume territory, but on Styles? It’s just downright dapper.
