Get Inspired: Fashion According to Four Classic Rock Stars

Everyone wants to look like a rock star, but not everyone wants to dress up in a machine-gun bra like Lady Gaga. For the more practical among us, we look to four old-school men of rock and update their signature vibes for our own stylish brand of androgyny-chic.

Elvis Costello There’s no denying that Elvis’ glasses are the most iconic part of his look, but that’s no reason that his knack for hipster-dandy style should go unrecognized. The guy knows how to sport a scarf, we’ll give him that.

Keith Richards Okay, so no one actually wants to resemble Keith Richards, but beneath his wrinkly exterior is a man who really knows his look. Take a page from Keith’s book and top your look off with loads of jewelry and a funky headband. Or, if you’re really dedicated, pick up a little something from Louis Vuitton (endorsed by the man himself).

1. Rose Leather Belt, $29.50,

David Bowie David Bowie always looks, in the nicest way possible, absolutely freaking crazy. If you’re feeling daring, grab the carrot-orange hair dye and embrace the trend of rainbow locks. Not looking for a permanent change? Go for super skinny pants and an outrageous blazer to pull off his look. Don’t forget eye makeup--loads of it.

1. Anglomania Blazer, $985,

Mick Jones Mick Jones, and The Clash were all about hardware. Steal Mick’s style with a proper menswear-inspired vest like this one, worn ironically. Pair it with a more grown-up update on The Clash’s signature hardware-laden boots. Don’t worry too much about keeping them clean, either.
