Iconic Musicians With Influential Style

Icons through and through

The relationship between music and fashion is tight. The two industries influence each other in an almost seamless way. That’s why it’s not unusual that you see fashion collections inspired by musicians or musicians venturing into fashion design. It’s also not unusual to learn that a great musician has a distinct and influential style. With that said, we’ve all encountered and took notes from them. Here are just some of our favourites.

Joni Mitchell

Joni Mitchell’s style can be described as “hippie chic.” Heavily inspired by her heyday, Mitchell’s style is a ‘70s daydream. From maxi dresses to wide leg pants, the Both Sides Now singer continues to inspire many modern stylistas. Her style is evergreen, as solidified by her being the face of Saint Laurent in 2015.

Patti Smith

An androgynous icon, Patti Smith’s style is as unique as her personality. While she did manage to put a name to her style, the singer-slash-poet-slash artist remains one of a kind, mainly because she purposefully deviated from what everyone was doing. Smith, who had been often seen wearing big jackets and skinny jeans, didn’t stick out like a sore thumb amongst her peers but stood out effortlessly.

Stevie Nicks

From fronting Fleetwood Mac to making a name for herself, Stevie Nicks was able to do it all… in style. Her bohemian-influenced style has become an inspiration to many. And we can’t say we’re surprised. Her love of leather and lace, fringe, blanket coats and capes sure make us feel regal yet free.


Madonna is a style chameleon who is never afraid of transformation. From cone bras to corsets to classic, Madonna never looks boring. The pop superstar has changed her style so many times since the late ‘70s, but she still manages to push the envelope.
