The couple may have called it quits, but it looks like Taylor’s signature style has worn off on her former flame! Who do you think wore hearts better? VOTE!

We all know hearts are kind of Taylor Swift‘s thing. Not only has the 23-year-old star showed off the print on everything from shirts and sweaters to dresses, but she also loves to flash the ‘hand-heart’ symbol. Judging by Harry Styles‘ birthday outfit, it looks like Taylor’s affinity for hearts has worn off on her ex!

Is Harry Wearing His Heart On His Sleeve?

While Taylor started dressing in sexy revenge looks since the couple called it quits, it wasn’t until Harry stepped out for his 19th birthday party at The Alibi Club in London on Feb. 2 that he wore something that made us do a double-take. While the One Direction member often sticks to basic tees and skinny jeans, he dressed up in a navy shirt with a heart print from Burberry Prorsum’s Fall 2013 ‘I ♥ Classics’ collection. Black jeans and brown suede ankle boots finished off his birthday suit. Harry is certainly a trendsetter, wearing the $650 shirt a mere month after it came down the runway in Milan.

Sure, the stylish star is a fan of the brand, (we caught up with him at the Spring 2013 show during London Fashion Week), but there’s no denying the fact that his shirt is totally Taylor. Even if he seems unphased by the split, there’s no denying the fact that Taylor and her whimsical sense of style just might have rubbed off on him. I doubt the songstress would be thrilled to see her ex rocking the print — especially while partying into the wee hours on his birthday!

Taylor Swift & The Heart Symbol Go Way Back:

Aside from the star’s brief stint in plunging necklines and backless gowns, Taylor loves wearing feminine dresses and often wears florals, polka-dots and yes, hearts! In fact, back in February 2012, the star sported a dress that was strikingly similar to Harry’s birthday shirt while lunching in West Hollywood in a navy frock that featured white hearts.

So one image of Taylor in a heart dress may not be convincing enough for you — but there’s no denying the fact that everyone knows hearts are her thing. The singer told The New York Times: “The heart-hand symbol means something between ‘I love you’ and ‘thank you,’” the country singer Taylor Swift said in an e-mail from her “Speak Now” tour. “It’s just a sweet, simple message that you can deliver without saying a word.” She added that she started doing it in pictures and out car windows during high school.”

Who Wore Hearts Better?

While I think it’s safe to say Taylor has dominated the market on hearts, ponies, wishes and butterflies, who do YOU think sported the print better? Is Harry a trendsetter who just might have wanted to switch up his style or do you think Taylor’s signature look just might have worn off on her 19-year-old? Does this mean Harry’s ready for love again?
