Rock stars have been the awe of their fans not just for their music but for their incredible style as well. They ooze off glamour and an edgy chic attitude and along with that have ample sex appeal as well. Rock stars certainly have an edge over all other musicians, and judging by their style, here is a look at the trendiest and the most stylish rock stars of all times:
1. Freddie Mercury
The slicked back hairdo and the moustache came in trend due to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. His flamboyant style sense is popular in the current era too, and perhaps his most sensational style statement became the vivid yellow jacket at a Queen concert in Wembley Stadium.
Loud and whimsical best describe Prince’s style. From bold purple pant suits paired with matching guitars on stage, Prince was the epitome of artsy fashion. With chunks of gold chains, black eyeliner and eclectic music, Prince was extravagant for sure.
Compiling this piece without mentioning Slash will seem like blasphemy. Guns n Roses icon Slash brought forth the round sunglasses into trend and rocked his top hat fearlessly. With his electric guitars and wild mane of dark hair, Slash became one of the best known rock stars of the era.
4. Jimi Hendrix
Jimi Hendrix taught people that being yourself can be cool and stylish and that is what the man did. Radiating true rock star vibes, Jimi Hendrix is regarded as the most influential electric guitarists of all times. His colourful clothing including embroidered pieces and vintage designs are timeless.
5. David Bowie
Fashion’s self-invention king, David Bowie brought forth the hippy look into fashion. His clothes were his self-expression and the rock star proudly rocked one legged catsuits and voluminous tie-dye suits. He also wore bold makeup and was always known to push fashion boundaries.
6. Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley is known as the best embodiment of the rock and roll style. Clad in head to toe leather, the legend was known for his high-collared jumpsuits, capes and flares. The exaggerated hair and the wide-leg trousers, which are popular even today, are credited to Elvis Presley’s 50s fashion. A fun fact about the famous star is that he never wore jeans, but lent his name to Levis’ first black denim jeans.
7. Courtney Love
The epitome of grunge and pseudo-gothic fashion, Courtney Love rocked fashion in the 90s with a certain edge. Known to rip and fray and add personal touches to expensive haute couture gowns, Courtney also loved studs and lace and made Doc Martens and chunky combat boots fashionable. She also brought the sea-salt sprayed ‘bed hair’ into style along with the smeared red lips and black eyeliner for a rebellious look.
