Photos Of Stevie Nicks’ Style Evolution, From ’70s Songbird To Music Icon

The Fleetwood Mac frontwoman and solo artist is known for her witchy, bohemian fashion.
|

Stevie Nicks’ style may be just as iconic as her music.

Since she hit the scene in the 1970s, the singer has graced concert stages and red carpets in a variety of ruffles, flowy skirts, embellished tops, shawls and other garments with a fabulously bohemian vibe. Many people have also described her style as “witchy,” particularly in recent years as she’s opted for an almost exclusively black wardrobe for public appearances.

In honor of her birthday, we’ve rounded up 60 photos that show Nicks’ style evolution across more than four decades, from ’70s songbird to double Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee.
