When Elton John's name is mentioned, a picture of a "flashman"—a person with a dazzling look and white sideburns—sitting at a piano and playing his songs instantly comes to mind. His appearance also includes a variety of colored and shaped glasses.
Let's examine the great singer's signature item in more detail.
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT ELTON JOHN'S GLASSES?
As outrageous and unique as Elton John himself, his sunglasses are an essential part of his outfit. He occasionally wears oversized rococo spectacles or windshield wiper glasses when performing concerts.
WHY DOES ELTON JOHN WEAR GLASSES?
This question's solution can be found in the background of another well-known rock star. Despite having great vision, Elton claims he began wearing horn-rimmed spectacles at the age of 13 in tribute to Buddy Holly, a legendary figure in 1950s rock and roll.
BIZZARE SHAPES AND VIBRANT COLORS
The use of amusing, weirdly shaped glasses is one of Elton John's most well-known style elements (and one of the most frequently imitated). The musician's most famous accessories are his heart and star glasses. Simply purchase glasses with colored frames, such as green, blue, pink, or white, to mimic Elton John's appearance. Any brilliant color will give your appearance the very masquerade that the Rocket Man costume creators intended to convey.
Take a closer look at round-shaped glasses if you want to seem extravagant while still fitting into an ordinary uniform. As you can see from the picture, Elton adored them a lot. By the way, John Lennon and Ozzy Osbourne were two musicians who favored the round form.
