On paper, Harry Styles and Marc Jacobs have very different personal styles. Jacobs loves outfits that incorporate clashing prints, glitzy materials, and sky-high Rick Owens platforms. Styles, meanwhile, has more of a retro sensibility: he rocks bellbottoms, disco blouses, and loads of Gucci statement suits. Yet even though they have their own fashion flavors, the two swirled their style this week when the singer and the designer wore the exact same item just a few days apart. The piece in question? Call it the fashion guy's anti-holiday sweater.
Designed by Jacobs and the artist Magda Archer, the sweater reads “Stay away from toxic people.” A dog on the front also holds up a sign reading, “You’ve got issues.” Styles was the first to wear the sweater during an appearance on Ellen, pairing it with brown corduroy trousers and sneakers. Jacobs followed suit today, styling it with a leopard Balenciaga coat (he loves animal prints). The sweater is not your average ugly Christmas party fare, though the cheeky messaging—all about surrounding yourself with positivity in 2020—makes a festive statement.
