Harry Styles is always willing to take a fashion risk, especially when it comes to his performance style. He performed with Shania Twain at Coachella in April wearing a sequined Gucci jumpsuit that channeled the flamboyant style of Elton John or David Bowie—you could see those shimmering paillettes from the nosebleeds! And while he’s also worn everything from fringed vests to printed suits on the stage, it’s the jumpsuit that Styles keeps returning to time and time again.
Just today, for instance, he performed on the Today show in New York City wearing his latest jumpsuit—a striped one-piece by JW Anderson complete with long, flared sleeves. Now, it’s quite difficult to make a mostly shapeless onesie look high-fashion, but Styles has proven that slipping into an easy outfit can have maximum impact. He styled it nonchalantly with sneakers, as though it were the simplest thing in the world to wear.
It’s not the first time Styles has opted for such a statement jumpsuit. He recently wore a red sequined number by the young Spanish designer Arturo Obegero in his “As It Was” video. Back in 2020, the singer also performed at the Brit Awards in a white lace Gucci jumpsuit. It’s easy to see why Styles is a fan of the silhouette: It’s a trouble-free shape that allows for seamless movement on-stage (and Styles loves to dance). And when done in interesting fabrics like lace or sequins, the design makes for a dressy moment, too. He may be onto something with the avant-garde onesie—you just slip it on and, voila, you’ve got an instant look.
