    Tay is known for usually dropping subtle hints in her songs about who they’re for, leaving fans to come to their own conclusions. In “Style” she comes right out with it in the title, but if you’re looking for further proof, she does sing about “long hair slicked back” and “white t-shirts” aka Harry’s signature look.
