FASHIONABLE FRONTMEN: HOW TO DRESS LIKE A ROCK STAR

How To Dress Like A Rock Star
When it comes to rock ‘n’ roll, performances are often about more than just music. From flamboyant to utilitarian, rock icons are often known as much for their sartorial style as their signature sound. Here, we break down the looks of four rock stars who mastered signature styles that are as relevant today as when they came on the scene.

Joey Ramone: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Uniform

All you need are three chords to write a punk song, and all you need to get Joey Ramone’s signature punk rock look are a black leather jacket, ripped jeans, a simple tee and a pair of Converse. Quintessential pieces like these never go out of style, which means you can wear them season after season, just like a Ramone.

David Bowie: The Style Chameleon

Having inhabited personas from Ziggy Stardust to Aladdin Sane to The Thin White Duke, Bowie is a style shapeshifter. He’s adopted the look of a dapper gentleman as of late, but along the way he pioneered androgynous, futuristic looks that still serve as style inspiration today. Give a nod to his glam Ziggy Stardust period with platform boots and metallic pieces.

Mick Jagger: Uptown Meets Downtown

A master of the rock ‘n’ roll suit, Jagger’s style speaks to both his status as a knight (that’s Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger to you) and his legendary exploits as the lead singer for The Rolling Stones. Get the look by pairing polished menswear classics like a button-up and white tuxedo jacket with a rakish hair cut and oversized sunglasses.

Neil Young: Best Western

While he was recently the face of New York skate brand Supreme, Neil Young’s usual go-to look is all about casual Western-inspired pieces. Channel his style with classics like suede outerwear, faded denim and cowboy boots. Mutton chops are optional.
