The world has lost a legend. Prince died on Thursday, at the very young age of 57. The music icon left his mark on the world in so many ways, but his groundbreaking fashion sense cannot be ignored. He had a signature style that will forever be associated with him as an artist, so in remembrance, let's take a look back at some of Prince's most iconic outfits. Nothing will ever come close to topping these.
Police are still investigating the cause of the musician's death, but what we all do know is that the world lost him far too soon. From his music to his movies, Prince has an incredible legacy that he will be leaving behind, and that most definitely includes his style. He always shocked as well as awed his fans, completely ignoring what society expected a man to wear with his bold colors, wild prints, and incredibly daring ensembles. From his sequin suits to his ruffled shirts (and all those times in between when he bared a whole lot more), Prince's style is unrivaled, and was just another facet of what made him an incredibly groundbreaking artist.
Though it's hard to narrow it down, here are 15 of Prince's most iconic style moments, and you'll probably realize when looking through these that he inspired so many trends we currently see today. He will be so missed.
1. Zebra Panties
Prince rocked these wild panties while performing in New York in the '80s, and can you really think of anyone else who could pull them off? Nope. Me either.
He covered up a little more while performing on his Dirty Mind tour, but I'm totally digging the deconstructed suiting. Also, he made the choker cool before anyone else.
3. Green Fringed Top
Only Prince could get away with rocking this edgy Peter Pan style outfit.
4. Sequin Suit
Classic, iconic, can't get enough.
And sparkly. And with a ruffled shirt. This one made all the statements.
Performing on the Purple Rain tour like a total rock god.
Even when he wasn't wearing much, he was still making style statements. That's how you know you're iconic.
"Little Red Corvette"... meet little red ensemble.
Wondering where Drake takes style cues from?
10. Third Eye Sunglasses
Prince's third eye glasses became iconic in recent years.
11. Ruffled Shirt, Open
He took the ruffled shirt pirate style, and I'm not even mad about it.
12. Salmon Sequin Shirt
Is this not the most perfect outfit?
The best for last — could he be anymore fierce?
Rest in peace.
