22 Pictures Showing Harry Styles Style Evolution

The world has known and loved Harry Styles ever since he first appeared on X Factor back in 2010. He’s one of our favorite members from One Direction (okay, we love them all). Harry’s evolved like the beautiful butterfly on his stomach before our eyes, from an adorable little 16-year-old to a hot hipster 22-year-old. Enjoy some of his best looks over the last 6 years!

During One Direction's early X Factor days, Harry was only 16, so we can forgive him for this strange over-sized sweater and jean combo.

Sweatpants, purple hoodie, and a puffer vest might seem strange to us, but it's probably the most comfortable outfit Harry's ever worn.

We think Harry was trying to channel Joey from Friends with this ensemble. "Could I BE wearing anymore clothes?!"

Towards the end of 2011 Harry was starting to get this whole style thing (AKA he finally hired his own stylist). We enjoyed his preppy days and this cute little bowtie.

If you're obsessed with Harry like us, then you know this look is from his Haylor days. WE liked it, even if most of the fandom did not. This was also about the time we speculated he might be growing his hair out.

As you probably know, Harry is a bit of a hipster. Looking back at this oddly (but super cute) patterned shirt, we should have known then.

Harry's got it right. Why bother buttoning your shirt when you've got a giant tattoo on your stomach to show off?

We're just going to say it, August 2013 was Harry Styles in his prime. The perfect hair length, just the right amount of chest/neck showing, and the most adorable little smile.

Harry's infamous 2013 Fashion Week look. He obviously looked better than all of the models combined. I mean, who else could rock animal print with that jacket better than Haz?

On 1D Day, we saw more of Harry's skin than we ever imagined. This look is something we wish we'd see from him again, because even if his tattoos are strange to us, they look great on him.

2 years later and Harry still rocked his favorite accessory, that strange hat - you know, the one that made him look like the Quaker Oats man.

We thought we were used to his eccentric taste, but we really have no idea what was even going on here. Is that a scarf or an ascot? What the hell even is that shirt pattern.

Stripes are actually a really good look for Harry, which is surprising with this selection as probably no one else could pull it off. By the end of 2014, we had full confirmation that Harry had no plans to cut his hair.

By September 2015, the weird patterns were no longer restricted to just shirts. They could make up an entire ensemble.

Over 5 years later, Harry was back to rocking vests, just ones with a lot less puff and a lot more (hopefully fake) fur.

No matter what style trends Harry wears, like an odd take on the bolo tie, we all can appreciate his taste for what it is. We will, however, start the countdown to when he cuts his hair. We want 2013's Harry hair back.
