From flared pants to lace, pearls and towering heels, Prince’s iconic sense of style will never be forgotten. His ability to rock androgynous looks, both on and off the stage, will always be remembered. Take a look back at his outrageous outfits right here.
All hail the original Prince of Pop: Prince! The artist was a trailblazer in so many ways, both with his music and his distinct sense of style — and we’re taking a look back at his most iconic outfits to pay tribute to the talented singer, who was found dead at 57 in his Minnesota compound on April 21. From flared pants to sequins, lace, speedos, chains, and heels, his androgynous look was defined by his daring ability to take risks and set trends.
From catsuits to bell bottoms, chains, and bandanas, his fashion continued to evolve throughout the duration of his career — but it was always showstopping! We were amazed by his ability to put together outfits, pairing speedos with thigh-highs, rocking ruffles and sporting tunics and bell bottoms on stage. While some artists adopt a stage persona for their performances, Prince truly identified with the aesthetic he showed off on stage and stayed true to his unique sense of style throughout his life.
Along with his bold outfits, he had a penchant for accessorizing. Layered chains, hats and high heels were always incorporated into his looks, as he showed off a slew of hairstyles throughout his career and embraced eyeliner. He treated the stage like his very own runway — and it was impossible to tear your eyes away from him.
