T-Minus 1 day...
I still remember the first time I heard Fleetwood Mac's Seven Wonders. I was sat in my parents' kitchen poorly attempting long division when my dad put on a compilation album of Fleetwood Mac's greatest hits. Even though it was three decades after the song was first released, I fell heads over heels in love with singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks.
Unsurprisingly, I'm not alone in the Stevie Nicks' fan club, as the gravel-voiced songstress continues to influence contemporary musicians like Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey and Harry Styles.
And although I was first mesmerised with Nicks' music, it wasn't long till I began to obsess over her inimitable rock star style. While I continue to struggle to pull off her 70s Gold Dust Woman top hats, her tousled 80s hair and bohemian shawls, Stevie Nicks' style have effortlessly evolved.
So, in honour of Stevie and the Fleetwood Mac In Concert Tour tomorrow night, here I present how to channel the goddess that is Stevie Nicks.
Stevie circa 1970
While Stevie Nicks is known for her love of the colour black, early 70s Stevie enjoyed colour. From the wrap top with statement sleeves to the high-waisted jeans and chunky platforms, we'd still wear this outfit today. In fact, we're wearing it right now…
Items L-R: Cream Ditsy Floral Print Tie Front Crop Top, €28, Pretty Little Thing; Boho Three Little Disc Earrings, €71, Juvi; Mid Blue Flared Denim Jeans, €55, Topshop; Duo Strap Woven Jute Wedges, €69, & Other Stories; Turquoise Pendant, €48, New Moon
Stevie circa 1975
If you can't pull of a top hat at a Fleetwood Mac concert, then when can you? Sure, it's a little out there, but Stevie has inspired us to be more experimental with our accessories. Also, the chiffon sleeves are everything.
Stevie circa 1977
Oversized billowing silhouettes, fringe and a wide-brimmed hat is iconic Stevie. Wrap yourself in a fringe shawl pair it with a hat and bang, solid Stevie vibes.
Stevie circa 1979
Nicks has always stuck to a pretty solid colour palette: black, black and the occasional vibrant red. The tiered skirt and the over-the-top black blouse/coat seems quite right for A/W '19.
Stevie circa 1981
...Just like the white winged dove
Stevie circa 1983
White lace or broderie Anglaise blouses are a Nicks classic and currently available everywhere.
Stevie circa 1990s
As the 1990s struck, Stevie brought back the black of the 1970s and opted for fringed beige coverups.
Stevie circa Today
Four decades later and Stevie still reigns as the queen of bohemian rock chic. However, instead of her trademark top hat, Nicks now opts for the combination of aviator sunglasses, black gloves and a crescent moon necklace.
Whatever version of Stevie you take inspiration for, just remember: when in doubt - add more fringe.
