Prince has left behind an incredible style legacy. Known for his snappy multicolor suits, vibrant patterns, and impeccably styled hair, his fashion is a huge part of what made him so iconic and beloved. Successfully gender-bending his way into the hearts of millions, he always dressed to impress in fabulously flamboyant ensembles.

From flowing curls, short cropped cuts, afros, and everything in between, Prince wore all his hairstyles with unshakeable confidence and changed his look fantastically often. Celebrities love to emulate his stylistic prowess, even incorporating his signature dash of dark eyeliner and plenty of ear jewelry.

More than anything, Prince will forever be associated with the deep purple hue that he as good as trademarked during his Purple Rain period. His magisterial outfit in the regal color will likewise be immortalized with its high ruffled collar, asymmetrical buttons, and pronounced shoulders.

The signature tint will continue to play a distinguished role in Prince’s fashion legacy, making a statement no matter who wears it. — ema
