YOUR ROCKETMAN-INSPIRED OUTFIT

By Eleanor Dunne, 3 June 2019

If you are yet to see Rocketman, the new Elton John movie released last week, we suggest you book your tickets ASAP. Just like last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody, it’s got everything you could ever want from a musical biopic – great tunes, hedonistic behaviour and, most importantly, outrageous costume choices. So much so, it's inspired us to create a look as flamboyant as the man himself. Are you ready for loving this fit?

Starring Taron Egerton as the artist formerly known as Reg Dwight, Rocketman portrays Elton’s love of ridiculously dramatic garms: a beautiful mélange of sparkling sequins, feathered headdresses, Versace robes, slick shades and some seriously extra heels. The lesson? When it comes to your style, you can never have too much fun. Keep scrolling for how to fit some Elton John vibes into your look now (and to see how many song references we can fit into one paragraph...)

Working an Elton-inspired look during the daytime is not for the faint of heart, so we’ve created a look that’s perfect for when the sun goes down. The neon trend is still standing for SS19, so go for a lime green shade up top, via a sumptuous satin bralet with a dramatic bow detail. Down below, some sequined skinnies are guaranteed to get you noticed under the strobe lights (we guess that's why they call them statement trews). Then, a pair of sky-high heels and some purple shades elevate the look to rocket man proportions. Can you feel our love for this ensemble? It's made for channelling your inner tiny dancer when your song comes on in the club.

Too many Elton John lyrics for one article? Sorry seems to be the hardest word...
