Harry Styles has made some strong fashion choices of late, and he is not afraid to wear the occasional dress every once in a while. From his uber glam lace blouse at the Met Gala this year to the glittery denim jumpsuit he wore at the December Jingle Bell Ball, Harry is not afraid to set the tone of his androgynous fashion choices.

Harry, who is used to being asked questions about his personal life, is always breaking stereotypes when it comes to what is acceptable as per gender norms. During an interview with The Guardian, Styles explained his audacious fashion when he donned a lace blouse and a pearl earring at the 2019 Met Gala. The star revealed, “What women wear. What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that. If I see a nice shirt and get told, ‘But it’s for ladies.’ I think: ‘Okaaaay? Doesn’t make me want to wear it less though, I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier.”

 

Styles explained that he uses fashion as a form of expression, something that has taught him about self-acceptance. When asked about the album cover of his latest album Fine Line, and how many people assumed the colours on it hinted an LGBTQ theme, the singer clarified that he’s not adding little hints or sending any subliminal messages about his sexuality either, saying, “Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No.”

He went on to add, “In terms of how I wanna dress, and what the album sleeve’s gonna be, I tend to make decisions in terms of collaborators I want to work with. I want things to look a certain way. Not because it makes me look gay, or it makes me look straight, or it makes me look bisexual, but because I think it looks cool. And more than that, I dunno, I just think sexuality’s something that’s fun. Honestly? I can’t say I’ve given it any more thought than that.”

On being asked if people pick apart his clothing choices and album art to figure out his sexuality, Styles answered that they do but he never understands why, adding, “Yeah, I think I do mean that. It’s not like I’m sitting on an answer, and protecting it, and holding it back. It’s not a case of: I’m not telling you cause I don’t want to tell you. It’s not: ooh this is mine and it’s not yours. It’s: who cares? Does that make sense? It’s just: who cares?”

Well, it does to us Harry!

The former One Direction band member was also aware that he can share and reveal as much as he wants to. And he is also aware that being asked these questions comes with the territory.

The ‘Only Angel’ singer confessed the same when he said, “What I would say, about the whole being-asked-about-my-sexuality thing - this is a job where you might get asked. And to complain about it, to say you hate it, and still do the job, that’s just silly. You respect that someone’s gonna ask. And you hope that they respect they might not get an answer.”
