Looking back at Rod Stewart's style—primarily his on-stage outfits with band The Faces (accompanied by band member Ronnie Wood) and finally, solo—it’s easy to see the British rock star was never afraid of a bold look. The leopard print-loving singer has always been eccentric with his fashion choices and clearly gets a kick out of playing dress-up. He’s worn it all—crop tops, wild prints, metallic spandex, you name it.
Nicknamed Rod The Mod for his iconic style, fashion was never an afterthought for the singer—his look is instantly recognisable. Whilst some performers wouldn’t—and still don't—stray from a T-shirt and jeans, he was more likely to be seen in a pink leotard. As Rod sang it—Every Picture Tells A Story. The images of him wearing a plush velvet suit, cool kick flares, striped silks, checks and tartan certainly do—the story is we want to mimic all his outfits for autumn/winter '18.
The '70s are very much the fashion era of the moment, adding to Sir Rod’s outfits appeal once again. Gucci, Prada and Chloé all took influences from the disco and glam rock era to inspire their current runway collections. Looking back through the archives and Rod has worn near-identical silk blouses, polka dot tops, skinny neck ties, and animal print pieces to those on our winter wishlists. My Dad wanted to dress like Stewart in the '70s, but I want to dress like him now.
All white’s all right—especially when it looks this stylish.
