Elvis Presley Inspired Outfits - How to dress like The King!


Elvis Presley is an eternal icon who left a huge imprint on the world and continues to inspire millions, consciously, subconsciously and unconsciously (yes, even after fainting ;)). I bump into teenage boys on the street with pompadours soo reminiscent of Elvis. Then on TV, Elvis' songs are blasting in commercials and just the other day I was watching the movie, ''Garfield'' where even the orange cat gets his hair done like Elvis! He says ''Well thank you, thank you very much ladies and gentlemen,'' while executing a karate move :) To say I love Elvis, is an understatement. He's my number one idol, my number one source of inspiration. Here are three Elvis inspired looks: 


1.) Total denim look
This look never goes out of fashion. It seems this is a recent trend but it goes way back! Here is a picture of Elvis in the movie, Roustabout (1964).

It's so easy to recreate this look! I got my jeans shirt and men's style, lace up shoes from Oviesse (a low-cost Italian store). My jeans are from Zuiki, another low cost clothing brand. I wear these three essential items so often, either together or separately. A black guitar is an optional accessory ;)

2.) Relaxin' on the couch, Elvis style
For this comfy outfit, you'll need a white bowling shirt, light colored pants and white shoes. My bowling shirt from Cruisin' USA is baby pink, with a black collar while my vintage pants are light apricot and they look exactly like Elvis', right?? As for the shoes, I couldn't find my saddle shoes, so I just wore white socks :)

3.) Jailhouse Rock outfit 
You'll need the darkest jeans and denim jacket you own, a striped tee and black shoes. Swing your hips and you'll be dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock in no time!

I can't promise you any pictures of me wearing Elvis' stunning, gold lamé suit or his iconic white jumpsuit, but stay tuned for more Elvis inspired style! :)

*********************************************************************************

Dire che amo Elvis sarebbe un eufemismo! Lui è il mio idolo, la mia fonte di ispirazione. Il re del rock and roll è un eterna icona che ha lasciato un segno nel mondo e continua tuttora ha ispirare milioni di persone, sia coscientemente che inconsapevolmente. Camminando per strada mi imbatto sempre in ragazzini con ciuffi che ricordano Elvis. In TV, si sentono le canzoni di Elvis nelle pubblicità. L'altro giorno guardavo il film, 'Garfield' su Italia Uno e perfino il gatto arancione imitava Elvis!!! :) Spero che vi siano piaciuti i miei tre look ispirati a Elvis!
