Prince’s style of fashion was just as eclectic as the diverse genres of rock n’ roll, funk, R&B, and pop his music encompassed. His looks were always breaking new boundaries, to say the least, and during his career, he released 32 studio albums – a discography much larger than most artists would ever dream of.
Over the years, his appearance evolved greatly. His style appeared to be partly influenced by fellow musicians, including Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, and perhaps most notably, the great James Brown.
When Prince Rogers Nelson passed away unexpectedly at his home and recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota on Thursday, the world didn’t just lose a music genius, it lost a fashion icon. Check out the Pinterest board above for a look back at some of our favorite Prince looks from over the years.
