| James Arthur
Since the birth of rock n roll, some artists have stood out as more than just musicians. These rock stars have fed our auditory and visual senses with great style and even greater music.
Rolling stones and fashion have one thing in common, Mr.Charlie Watts. His style was so effortless, that it made other people think that they were trying too hard. He has said that he got his love of clothes from his father and while he loved fashion, he had to adapt to it himself as he was too small.
A true artist, David Bowie turned clothes into art. His transformation from suits to dramatic yet iconic ensembles can never be forgotten. The man was avant-garde in his style choices and pushed boundaries with fashion-forward self-expression.
Some wear hats to accessorize, Tom waits wore hats to give them character. His music varied from jazz to blues to vaudeville and finally to rock; like his music, his clothes had a diverse personal architecture to them.
All american rock n roll star, Bruce Springsteen never faltered with his fashion style throughout his musical career. He has kept it simple and casual with tank tops, jeans, shirts, and leather jackets but still manages to look like an icon that even Obama calls him The Boss.
The man from the 90’s popular band Oasis is no stranger to the casual laid-back fashion. The fact that his indifference to his outfits still manages to make him look good is the reason he is on this list. Liam Gallagher, a man of many words and also extreme fashion choices.
Elvis rocked his large square glasses and carried the hipster punk rock style with him throughout his musical career. Equipped with a suit, a pair of spectacles and a guitar he made young men and women fall in love with his music.
David Campbell (Beck)
Just like Beck is known for his musical collages of wide genre styles, he has made into our list because of his unashamed stance towards fashion. The multi-talented Grammy winner has experimented with his clothes and yet has managed to keep his staple jeans and shirt fresh.
George Harrison was not only a lyrical genius, but also iconic in his dressing style. He was friends with Pandit Ravi Shankar and loved classical music as he believes it would “help as a balance towards a peaceful daily life”.
The world understood his inclination towards vibrant Indian culture through his bold and bright shirts. That man could pull anything off with that hair and his audience would love it. Such was his presence.
Would the 60’s be 60’s without Jimi Hendrix’s iconic style? He proved that he was a creator through and through with his music and fashion. His flamboyant military fashion got him into trouble a couple of times but he sailed through all of those times in technicolor and soft billowy fabric.
The rock style icon and Vietnam war activist Jim Morrison loved to play with his outfits. His looks were classic and simple but held his essence as a bohemian rock star and garnered him appreciation from the whole baby boomer generation in the 60’s. Often called a Demi-god, the man wore leather pants like no other.
