Unlikely Style Icon: Prince In “Purple Rain” Does A Frilly Shirt Proud

There’s really only one man who can get away with wearing a blouse, and that’s Mr. Purple Rain himself, Prince. Nearly 30 years after “Purple Rain” debuted, Prince is still killing it style-wise, and the recent Twitter convert’s music is still as relevant and sexy as ever. Seriously, did you hear his new track, “Breakfast Can Wait”? But how do you wear Prince? Very carefully, as it turns out. Very carefully.

We were intrigued by the possibility of taking his purple-suited awesomeness and translating it into a modern, lady-friendly look (though you’ll have to find your own hair mousse, sorry). Click through to see just how we did.
