Harry Styles’ First Tour Outfit Is Extremely Harry Styles

Despite recently starring in a highly somber Important War Film, Harry Styles’ affinity for dressing like a well-loved antique couch isn’t going anywhere. And thank god, really.

Last night in San Francisco, at the very first stop on his US tour, Harry wore a (flared!) suit in a print that can be described as “Grandma’s sunroom love seat.” The springy white pattern was accessorized with a wristband, which is a remnant from his recent tendon surgery.

Although it’s unclear whether he’ll stick with the same exact look throughout the rest of the tour, it’s worth noting that there are literally 86 stops and this is Harry Styles, so that’s an almost definite “are you mad?!”

As an added bonus to ensure your day is nothing short of delightful, here is Harry performing “What Makes You Beautiful,” a song from his pre-couch days. —Rebecca Jennings, associate producer

Deal of the Day

“Up to 80% off” is a sale phrase you typically see around a season’s end, not right on the precipice of an equinox. And yet that’s the discount you’ll find on Yoox’s sale page right now. With more than 2,000 items marked down, you’ll definitely want to filter — searching for under $100 pulls up a lot of trendy shoes from house brand 8, while browsing what’s an extra 25% off (only until the 23rd) surfaces suddenly attainable pieces from labels like Acne Studios, Rick Owens, and Alice + Olivia.

Can You Buy Cool?

In the ’90s, Tommy Hilfiger rose to mega-popularity because of hip-hop artists like Grand Puba and Snoop Dogg, who rapped about the designer’s clothes, wore them on television, and walked in his fashion shows. Aaliyah very memorably appeared in the brand’s ad campaigns. Tommy Hilfiger’s moment of cool wore off eventually, an inevitability of fashion that was helped along by a rumor that Hilfiger himself had made racist comments about his shoppers on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Today, the brand is pinning its reputation on an ongoing collaboration with Gigi Hadid, the Real Housewives offspring-turned-supermodel with 35.7 million Instagram followers, and on elaborate “experiential” fashion shows showcasing the immediately shoppable Tommy x Gigi collection, to which consumers are invited. The brand’s third runway show of this sort — a mashup of circus performers, celebrity offspring, and Victoria’s Secret models — closed out London Fashion Week last night.

Tommy Hilfiger’s strategy is obvious. By putting on unignorable productions and partnering with some of the world’s biggest influencers, it’s buying its way to popularity. Nearly every brand tries to do this, some just do it more explicitly (and with bigger budgets) than others. You tell me: Is it working? —Eliza Brooke, senior reporter

If My Mom Can Wear Wide-Leg Pants, So Can You
Woman in blue shirt and striped trousers.

If you’re not already wearing wide-leg pants, you’ve probably at least thought about it. The trend started on the runways a few years ago and at this point has trickled down to pretty much everywhere; they’re in Zara and H&M, in all the indie boutiques, in Everlane, even in Target. Despite the style’s ubiquity, we’ll still get questions about what to wear with them or where to find a good pair for certain body types — short, tall, plus, etc. — suggesting that many people still don’t feel like the silhouette will work for them right off the shelf.

But! I’ve seen people of all shapes, sizes, and ages pull off wide-leg pants of all rises and lengths. My middle-aged neighbor looks just as cute in high-waisted wide-leg denim as my teenage cousin does in her pleated satin wide-leg lounge pants. And I at least feel like I look as good in my own DIY-cropped chinos as my most stylish friend does in her perfectly tailored wide-leg work trousers.

In my own orbit, it seems like the only person who hasn’t totally come around to the trend is my mom, who (not unlike many moms) is a pretty good barometer for when things have been fully embraced by the wider culture. She’s got impeccable taste but tends to play it pretty safe. I stopped letting her pick out my outfits when I was about 3 years old, but she was in town the other day when I got a pair of wide-leg pants delivered in the mail from a designer consignment store, so I tried them on and had her be the judge. They were a size too big and I’m really short, so they ended up being comically huge on me. My mom beat around no bushes and told me I looked like a clown in balloon pants. (I did.)

But when I made her try them on, we were both surprised by how good they looked — especially after she tucked in her white T-shirt and added a long-line cashmere vest, which she told me she bought forever ago and is happy that they’re now back in style. She hung out in her new outfit for a solid hour and reported back that they’re the most comfortable pants she’s worn in a long time.

Even though she looked awesome, I couldn’t convince her to wear them to her work meetings the next day. But I’m betting that our latest shopping story on the very best wide-leg pants out right now can convince her to try another pair, maybe one that’s more suited to her own look. Who knows: If you’re skeptical about “pulling them off,” maybe we can convince you, too.

(Psst — if you’re a shortie like me, check out this helpful post we ran earlier in the year on all the things you can do to make the pants work for a petite frame.) —Cory Baldwin, shopping editor
