Stevie Nicks' Style

 Ok guys, let's talk about Stevie Nicks. There's many elements to understanding this woman. There's her music indivisually, Fleetwood Mac, her live performances, her personality, and her relationships. But there's one thing you cannot surpass when talking about Stevie Nicks-her style. Stevie came to fame in the mid 70s and immediately developed a style that would stick with her for years. Many say it is witchy, some say gypsy; either way, it is unique and one like no other.

Stevie's style is one like no other. In the 1970s, Stevie's style was very gypsy, and bohemain. But it was also very dark and mysterious. She would often times wear a black tank top, leotard/ballerina style, with a gypsy patterned maxi skirt. The skirt would usually flow down in layers, accompanied by a long, flowing shawl hanging down past her waist. From her neck would hang all kinds of beads and necklaces, often times being a crescent moon necklace, which can be seen in most of the pictures above. Her hair was always curled and teased under a sophisticated black top hat, and her shoes were often times platform heeled boots, which made her stand tall. 
Mama Nicks. Here are some pictures of Stevie Nicks now. Doesn't she look fabulous? If I could choose to look like anyone when I get older, I'd choose to look like her. I think she is so perfect, still to this day. Stevie is still a rocker at heart and does shows with Fleetwood Mac, performing her classic hits. She also still maintians her distinctive style, wearing her flowy black outfits and twirling around in them onstage.

The crescent moon necklace symbolizes Stevie. She is a sister of the moon, she has a witchy edge, and she likes to keep some things a mystery. To this day, Stevie can still be seen wearing her iconic crescent moon necklace, which signifies who she is. You can see this in the picture above.

Just to give a little taste of Stevie, her music, and her style, here is a clip of her singing Rhiannon with Fleetwood Mac in 1976. She is, to me, the definition of perfection in this video. Her hair is curled a golden blonde, her voice exudes passion when she sings, and she is twirling her way to stardom in her signature skirt and shawl flowing behind her.
