Since setting sail solo, Harry Styles has long marched to the beat of his own drum.
And he continues along said trajectory in the December 2020 issue of Vogue Magazine.
The ‘Watermelon Sugar’ chart-topper poses it up in an edgy shoot lensed by Tyler Mitchell.
In a number of the shots, the former One Direction member sports clothes traditionally worn by women – such as dresses and skirts.
And within his accompanying interview, he makes clear that he’s all about creative expression – first and foremost.

Styles said of her fashion choices:
“You can never be overdressed. There’s no such thing. The people that I looked up to in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen. As a kid it was completely mind-blowing. Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with.”
Continuing, he added:
“What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play. I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”
