As any Directioner knows, One Direction’s story begins on the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2010. Harry’s curly hair made tweens swoon.

Not the Abercrombie groutfit giving us major 2010s nostalgia.
At this point, Harry was still coordinating outfits with his bandmates. The boys wore similar suits with ties so skinny they looked like a single piece of fabric.
In classic 2012 style, Harry opted for a blazer buttoned over a white T-shirt with a low neckline. Today he’ll still let some chest peek through outfits. We can’t complain.
The “Watermelon Sugar” singer experimented with a variety of different hats, including this wide-brimmed one he wore to the 2014 American Music Awards.
We could never forget Harry’s beanie phase (especially while he was dating Taylor Swift).

After One Direction split in 2015, Harry ventured into a solo career with the release of “Sign of the Times” and an album. Patterned suits were a must.
At the 2019 Met Gala, Harry wore head-to-toe Gucci. Is he the fashion house’s creative director Alessandro Michele’s muse? Sure looks like it.

The “Golden” singer broke barriers as the first man to appear solo on the cover of Vogue. He rocked a Gucci dress in shots captured by photographer Tyler Mitchell.
Cue the 2021 Grammys where Harry showed off his feather boa collection and casually won three awards.
Our favorite British heartthrob has certainly come a long way — both in fashion sense and career-wise — since The X Factor.
